However, with streaming services, that has changed. In fact, if you’re looking to play games on your Mac, you might be interested to hear about the latest update to NVIDIA’s GeForce Now service. The company has announced that those who are subscribed to the RTX 3080 tier will be able to stream games onto their Mac at resolutions as high as 1600p.
According to NVIDIA, “Plus, GeForce NOW RTX 3080 members can now play at native resolution on their M1 Macbook Air or Macbook Pro, at glorious 1600p. Stream with even longer sessions lengths — up to eight hours. And with RTX ON for both RTX 3080 and Priority members, experience games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Control with real-time ray tracing, without upgrading to a PC.”
GeForce Now offers users several tiers to choose from – the free tier, the Priority tier which costs $10 a month, and the RTX 3080 tier priced at $100 for six months. This means that you’ll need to be subbed to the highest tier in order to enjoy your games at higher resolutions.
While it’s not exactly cheap, it could be one way for you to enjoy games without having to worry about software or hardware limitations, while staying within Apple’s ecosystem.
