Before you get started, make sure to check the regional availability website to ensure GeForce NOW RTX 3080 memberships are available in your country. Note that we also require your latency to be less than 80ms from an NVIDIA data center, but we recommend less than 40ms. Please make sure you have run our in-app network test to measure your latency. We do not recommend using Speedtest, or other internet speed test services, as they do not test your speed to our data centers.
Internet Speed Requirements
GeForce NOW requires at least 15mbps for streaming at 720p and 60/120 FPS, or 25mbp at 1080p and 60/120 FPS. We also recommend a 5GHz wireless router.
Maximum Resolution and Frames Per Second
With a RTX 3080 membership, the maximum streaming resolution and frames per second on Android phones is 1080p and 120 FPS.
120 FPS streaming will require a phone that supports 120Hz. At launch, NVIDIA will enable a select set of phones to streamt at 120 FPS, but we will add new ones over time. The following phones are currently enabled by NVIDIA to stream at 120 FPS:
- Samsung S20 FE EG
- Samsung S21
- Samsung S21+
- Samsung S21 Ultra
- Samsung Note20 Ultra 5G
If your phone supports 120Hz and is not supported in our app, please use in-app feedback to send us your phone information.
Some phone’s factory settings are not set to 120Hz. You may need to adjust your phone’s display to 120Hz. Samsung has a support article detailing how to do this. For other manufacturers, please consult your phone’s user guide.
GeForce NOW Streaming Settings
Now that your system is ready for 120 FPS, you must manually enable 120 FPS mode in the GeForce NOW app. Launch the app and go to Settings > GeForce NOW > Stream quality.
You will need to adjust the resolution to match your phone, and you must set the frame rate to 120 FPS.
Customized In-Game Graphics Setting
NVIDIA has optimized our most popular games for streaming at 120 FPS. For these games, we automatically set the best in-game graphics settings: You should not need to change any settings to get the best experience.
However, you are free to change settings if you feel doing so provides you with a better streaming experience. We have provided a new feature that lets you save your own in-game graphics settings for each game. If you disable it, our recommended values will be applied.
