NVIDIA today announced that the high-performance GeForce NOW™ cloud gaming service is coming to cars. BYD, the world’s leading manufacturer of new energy vehicles (NEVs); Hyundai Motor Group, the world’s third-largest automaker with the Hyundai, Kia and Genesis brands; and Polestar, a Swedish brand of everyday items and premium electric vehicles, will be the first to offer GeForce NOW in their vehicles.
Today’s announcement expands NVIDIA’s offerings for in-vehicle infotainment, including a suite of products and services that enhance the in-cabin experience. GeForce NOW combines with NVIDIA’s legacy in gaming and infotainment, so you can now deliver an entire PC gaming experience in real time, beyond desktops, laptops and mobile devices, to software-defined cars.
The new GeForce NOW offering can improve time spent charging vehicles or commuting by allowing front-seat occupants to stream games while parked or charging an electric vehicle, and passengers to play in the back seat if screens are available.
“Accelerated computing, artificial intelligence, and connectivity deliver new levels of automotive automation, safety, comfort, and enjoyment,” said Ali Kani, vice president of automobiles at NVIDIA. “The ability to stream popular titles from gamers’ libraries, along with dozens of free games, will take the in-vehicle infotainment experience to a new level.”
GeForce NOW uses revolutionary low-latency cloud streaming technology powered by GeForce cloud servers, enabling real-time play of over 1,000 titles, including top-rated titles like A Plague’s Tale: Requiem, The Witcher 3 : Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077, from major PC game stores like Steam, the Electronic Arts app, Ubisoft, Epic Games Store and GOG.com. The catalog also features many of the world’s most popular games, including Fortnite, Lost Ark and Destiny 2.
