NVIDIA GRID Cloud Gaming with NVIDIA Shield Overview and Quick Look (BETA)

NVIDIA GRID Technology with NVIDIA Shield Overview and Quick Look

The long awaited beta for NVIDIA's GRID service has finally arrived. Currently limited to those living in Northern California, we were lucky enough to try out the service and put it through the paces. Just how good is the service? Check out our video and article to see our thoughts on the beta service.

Requirements

To participate in the GRID beta, you'll need:

  • NVIDIA SHIELD gaming portable
  • Internet connection with at least a 10 Mbps download speed
  • Home network with 40 ms or less ping time to the GRID cloud gaming servers in San Jose, CA
  • NVIDIA GameStream™-Ready 5 GHz Wi-Fi router

NVIDIA GRID Server

What is the GRID?

"NVIDIA GRID™ technology offers the ability to offload graphics processing from the CPU to the GPU in virtualized environments, allowing the data center manager to deliver true PC graphics-rich experiences to more users for the first time." NVIDIA

Availability

NVIDIA GRID servers are located in San Jose, CA, and users need a ping time of 40 ms or less to the GRID data center, as well as at least a 10 Mbps Internet download speed. It's possible that users outside of this area, with a fast enough internet connection, can meet these requirements and participate but we expect the best experience in Northern California." NVIDIA
