The Ultimate membership tier is the new top-tier subscription tier for people interested in Nvidia’s GeForce Now cloud gaming service. Ultimate gets you access to RTX 4080 SuperPODS, which Nvidia claims are almost twice as fast as the powered ones its predecessor, the RTX 3080. The new stage has Nvidia Reflex with G-Sync support, full ray tracing, AV-1 encoding (for higher quality streaming), DLSS 3 full frame scale up Support – specifically for the RTX 40 series – and gameplay at up to 240 fps. It also supports ultrawide gaming monitors and 4K resolutions up to 120 fps.
GeForce RTX 4080 SuperPOD
“Ultimate members receive three major streaming upgrades. The new RTX 4080 SuperPODs are capable of rendering and streaming at up to 240 frames per second. When paired with NVIDIA Reflex, it makes every moment of the action feel as if it’s on a desktop PC. And 4K gaming goes beyond fast with an upgrade to 120 fps, with support for DLSS 3 and RTX ON. Plus, for the first time, ultrawide resolutions are supported, giving members a wider point of view, at up to 3,840 x 1,600 resolution and 120 fps.”
“Ultimate members in and around San Jose, Los Angeles, Dallas and Frankfurt, Germany, will be the first to experience the power of these RTX 4080 SuperPODs, starting today. Each week, GFN Thursday will spotlight the newest cities with upgraded servers, so make sure to check back each week to see which cities light up next on the map.”
