Nvidia GeForce Now game streaming service lands on M1 Macs

Vlad, 04 February 2021

The M1 Macs Apple recently announced have a ton of power thanks to the company's own processor, but what about gaming? Well, Nvidia's got your back.

Its GeForce Now game streaming service is now available to use on M1 Macs, through the dedicated app. This has been 'translated' using Apple's Rosetta 2 emulator, so GeForce Now isn't at this point fully optimized for M1. However, many other apps that use Rosetta 2 have almost no discernible performance hit, so we're very curious as to how this will do.

You can also use GeForce Now through Chrome or Safari, but a dedicated app is probably a better idea than using a browser - even if it is going through an emulator.

Who the heck pays for Stadia when the company behind it loves to terminate products and services whenever they feel like it?

It's not flawless, that's for sure, but decent enough. It is highly dependant on your connection speed and stability (obviously). And the fact you can play the games you already own and will still own in case the service goes down the drain...
