Nvidia announced its latest GeForce Now service during its CES 2017 keynote. Tailored for low powered laptops and older desktop computers. Nvidia's new service is a game changer for recreational gamers that are just short of the hardware necessary to play hardcore video games.

GeForce Now is a gaming streaming service, similar to the PlayStation Now gaming stream service. It’s cloud-based and can turn any PC or Mac into a powerful gaming rig with just one click.

With latency refined, GeForce Now makes your PC game ready within seconds and even has a Steam app which takes a few seconds to load up and download games. The new service allows for top notch on-demand PC gaming.

GeForce Now will be available for early users in March and will also cost $25 for 20 hours of play. The allotted 20 hours may or may not seem like much. However, gamers that aren’t necessarily completionists may still be able to complete a single-player campaign within the time slot and it is still less expensive than upgrading to a high-end rig.
