Nvidia has this week announced that they have now launched their new Nvidia Grid cloud gaming beta service for owners of their Nvidia Shield portable handheld game console to enjoy in Northern California , which will last for around three moths.
The new Nvidia Grid cloud gaming service has been designed to provide gamers with an easy way to stream high-quality PC games directly to their Shield portable games consoles.
If you fancy trying out the new beta service launched by Nvidia this week you will need to be based in the Northern California area and also have a home network with 40 ms or less ping time to the Nvidia Grid cloud gaming servers in San Jose, California.
The Nvidia Grid beta app is available with Shield Software Update 65, or for download from the Google Play store. The Nvidia Grid beta app will run a network test when you launch it and may issue warning messages or prevent play if it finds any problems with your network connection to the GRID servers. Nvidia explains why the beta testing of their new Nvidia Grid service is restricted to the Northern California area :
“Nvidia Grid servers are located in San Jose, CA, and users need a ping time of 40 ms or less to the GRID data center, as well as at least a 10 Mbps Internet download speed. It’s possible that users outside of this area, with a fast enough internet connection, can meet these requirements and participate but we expect the best experience in Northern California.”
