NVIDIA GeForce Now: now you can also use it on Chromebook

NVIDIA GeForce Now

Until a while ago, the streaming video game service NVIDIA GeForce Now It was only available for the Microsoft Windows platform, Apple macOS, Android, and also for its NVIDIA Shield, the Android TV box for gaming that the graphics company has. Therefore, it was not possible to use it from your GNU / Linux distro, and it seems that they do not have much interest in it either ...

The good news is that NVIDIA has also launched support for those who have an operating system ChromeOS on a Chromebook. Although it is not for generic Linux distros, but at least the Google platform is also added to the list of users who will be able to benefit from this gaming platform.

If you are a user of the ChromeOS operating system based on Linux kernel, you should know the new requirements that NVIDIA requires to work under this platform. If you do not comply with them, you will not be able to run the GeForce Now software client that you need to start enjoying the service and its video game catalog.

Said requirements are:

  • Chromebook with ChromeOS 77.x or higher operating system.
  • USB or Bluetooth keyboard and mouse / Microsoft Xbox 360, One, One S, Sony PlayStation DualShock 4, or Logitech F710 game controllers in DirectInput mode.
  • Internet connection of at least 15MB / s for resolutions of 720p @ 60FPS on GeForce Now, or 25 Mb / s for resolutions of 1080p at 60FPS. Otherwise, lag could seriously affect your game.
  • 3th Gen Intel Core M7, Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7
  • Intel HD 600 or higher
  • 4 GB of RAM or more

However, according to reports from NVIDIA, the service is still in Test phase and they work to get it to work properly on Chromebooks. But usually there should be no problems.
