GeForce NOW is expanding 120fps support to all Android phones. An update to NVIDIA’s game streaming service will arrive in the coming weeks for all users after being limited to certain phone models for some time.
However, the obvious should be noted, which is that only those phones that offer a 120Hz refresh rate will be able to take advantage of 120fps in GeForce NOW for Android. Otherwise, they will continue to operate at the rate allowed by the device, typically 60 Hz/fps.
So far, NVIDIA has maintained a list of supported Android phone models that already ran at 120fps on GeForce NOW, but the change has been approved so that the aforementioned technical limitation will be the only update speed limit in the coming weeks.
Another requirement for running GeForce NOW on Android at 120fps is an internet connection of at least 15Mbps or 25Mbps to run at 720p or 1080p respectively. 1080p and 120 FPS are also the maximum for RTX 3080 plan subscribers, the highest graphics power level.
What about iPhone and iPad users? As far as possible , nothing at the moment. They will still be subject to 60 FPS regardless of the characteristics of their device, and also use the web application instead of the native one, obtained from Apple’s well-known abuse of position.
On the other hand, hardly a month goes by that GeForce NOW doesn’t leave us with news about its progress in different areas, and if today we are talking about 120 FPS support on Android, then last month we were talking about 4K on Windows and macOS, limitedly. Yes, RTX 3080 plan subscribers.
Of course, talking about GeForce NOW means talking mostly about games, so don’t miss the June shipment, which saw NVIDIA add 25 new games to the service’s catalog.
