GeForce Now 3080 now available immediately
After launching in the past two months, Nvidia is now offering its RTX 3080 tier for GeForce Now immediately to anyone who wants it. Prior to this point, the higher membership level had to be “pre-ordered” with orders being accessed at a later date.
The future of cloud gaming is NOW available to everyone, with pre-orders closing and GeForce NOW RTX 3080 subscriptions moving to instant access. Gamers can sign up for a six-month GeForce NOW RTX 3080 membership and start streaming the next-generation cloud gaming instantly today.
In addition to that news, GeForce Now added three new games this week.
