    I got a 1 year subscription to Geforce NOW with my GPU, was under the impression it was something like PS Now where you have a library of titles to choose from. It isn't, it just lets you play your own steam library.

    I've now used it zero times.

    It's good for people with older cards or those who bought into RDNA2 as it lets them see what RT looks like.

    It does strike me as somewhat odd that GeForce Now would be bundled with a GPU. I could see it being a nice add on included with an ultra-mobile PC that doesn't have a dedicated GPU, or only has a weak one. But if you're buying a dedicated GPU, you probably aren't (or will soon no longer be) in the target market.

    Maybe if it's a lower end GPU, nVIDIA would try to use it as an incentive to see how much better of an experience you could have had if you'd bought a 3080 instead of a 1050, in the hopes you're upgrade in a year or two? I'm curious which GPUs they bundled it with.

    I got it with my 3060Ti, but struggling to see the point. I guess it's for mobile gaming, using a lighter laptop whilst not at home or something???

    I guess they don't really have any other hardware to pair it with.

    Ideally it should be paired with low end / esport gpus and their Shield TV only.

    Granted it may allow higher resolution gaming for mid range cards (I suppose 60 is low, just not in price), but the service is more like renting a vm, without the full vm functionality, but with a decent gpu.

    Hopefully, the Samsung TV Integration will be coming quite soon.

    I think that's it, giving out free subs increases the exposure/userbase but giving it to people who don't need it is silly.

    Could see someone buying a SHIELD TV or a laptop maybe being interested, but they'll also need a library of games to play as well. And I doubt many people will have tons of games with nothing to play them on.

    I do have a linux laptop, that I use mainly for work, that should now be supported with a web client. But since I'm working at home I don't need it. Might try it out anyway, so I can complain about my shocking internet connection.
