Adstoppi Blog | Nvidia is bringing its GeForce Now cloud gaming service to Android phones

Published by:


See the photo above? That’s not Nvidia — it’s Microsoft’s xCloud, streaming Halo to an Android phone from remote internet servers powered by AMD GPUs. Google will also be bringing its Stadia cloud gaming service to Google Pixel phones from AMD-powered servers, and you’ll be able to try both this fall.

That’s probably why AMD rival Nvidia isn’t sitting still. The graphics giant just announced it will “soon extend” its existing GeForce Now cloud gaming service to Android phones, including flagship devices from LG and Samsung.

Unfortunately, we don’t have details like “when exactly?” and “how much?” except that you won’t have to pay to try Nvidia’s service at first. Like the current GeForce Now for Mac, PC, and Nvidia’s Shield TV set-top box, it’ll be in beta when it starts out.

It’s not much of a stretch for Nvidia to bring the service to Android phones, by the way. In another life, Nvidia’s GeForce Grid first came to the Android-based Nvidia Shield portable gaming console, and it’s been running on the Nvidia Shield TV, which runs Android TV, for years. On Mac and PC, the invite-only beta of GeForce Now has proven to be pretty impressive at streaming games over the internet, at least if you’ve got an excellent Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection and live relatively near a server — I’ve been beating bosses in the downright masochistic Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice using GeForce Now, syncing progress to Steam as I go.

Whether it’ll work over LTE or 5G cellular connections is another question, though. And I’m curious how Nvidia might make the economics work if it tries to actually make money from the service and not just, you know, run betas forever.

Recently, Nvidia partnered with Softbank and LG’s U+ to bring GeForce Now to Japan and Korea — it was previously available in North America and Europe — and it’s been rolling out newer servers powered by its RTX graphics cards in California and Germany to add additional performance.

Accounting Ethics

Published by:

Accountants at some point in their careers will find themselves having to determine whether their situation is ethical or not. Professional ethics is an essential facet of an accountant's job. As an accountant, you have the dedication to every customer to establish competence, confidentiality, integrity, and credibility. Competence is the place you must show a degree of professionalism in addition to developing the knowledge and skills you might need as an accountant. Confidentiality is whenever you as an accountant should maintain information confidential unless authorized or legally obliged to release customer information. Integrity is whenever you must communicate with the partners to avoid any conflict of interests. Finally, there's credibility which is whenever you must communicate...

Not content to end the year with just three different 6T options, OnePlus has announced a new special edition of the phone co-branded with storied automotive racing company McLaren. The OnePlus 6T McLaren edition is much like the 6T that was released earlier this fall, but it comes with more RAM, an even faster-wired charging system, and a special black-and-orange color scheme. The phone will be available starting on December 13th in North America and Western Europe for $699 / €699. It will arrive in China, India, and the Nordics at a later date. Nearly $700 is a steep price for a OnePlus phone, which is typically priced very aggressively compared to other high-end Android phones. The standard OnePlus 6T starts at $549 for 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. To justify its price tag, the...

Buying Structured Settlements

Published by:

There are several ways to create an income. And after that, there's the possibility of purchasing a structured settlement. What's a settlement? When a person wins his case and brings a suit say, for an injury on the job that has caused an impairment, for example, the judge is able to award the plaintiff a compensation from the defendant. This settlement is most commonly a single payment. Let's imagine that you get been awarded one million dollars without feeling on your arm, from a suit against your employer for an accident at work which has left. You have done with it and might, of course, take the million dollars. But you may thrash out a deal to get your award. This is called a structured settlement. Opt for a settlement? Plaintiffs opt to have a settlement as opposed to payment in 1...

A social media influencer has been sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for concocting a scheme to violently coerce a stranger into giving up a web domain name, the US Department of Justice announced today. The influencer, Rossi Lorathio Adams II, went by the name "Polo," and he ran a series of accounts across Instagram and other platforms known as State Snaps while attending college at Iowa State University. The accounts, which Adams began operating around 2015, typically involved depictions of risky or sexually explicit behavior, often featuring college girls. According to The Washington Post, one account Adams ran on Instagram had amassed 1.5 million followers. Adams, however, became increasingly frustrated that he did not own doitforstate.com, a reference to a popular hashtag...

Razer teases first Xbox One mouse and keyboard

Published by:

The Xbox One’s first official wireless mouse and keyboard are in the works, and Razer is clearly teasing what the two products will look like — and when we’ll get to learn more. The full reveal image was actually released late last month, but it seems to have mostly flown under the radar. Now the company is prominently advertising the pair as it promotes their announcement, which coincides with the first day of CES: January 8th. We’ve known for half a year that Razer had partnered with Microsoft on mouse and keyboard support for Xbox One, and it could have major implications for future titles. Xbox One players have been asking for mouse and keyboard support for a long time — the console was released in November 2013, and the feature only arrived last month — but Microsoft had...

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has announced that chief operating officer Barney Harford and chief marketing officer Rebecca Messina are both departing the company. In a Friday email to employees, Khosrowshahi said, “over the years, I’ve learned that at every critical milestone, it’s important to step back and think about how best to organize for the future. Given that we’re a month past the IPO, now is one of those times.” The executives are stepping down almost a month after Uber went public in the biggest tech IPO in years. The actual IPO was viewed by many as a disappointment, but Uber has been trading above its stock price as of this week. Harford was named COO in December 2017, with Uber receiving criticism for the choice after it was initially believed Uber’s board was...

Business And Venture Capitalists

Compose a company plan As an entrepreneur with a company idea, a company plan needs to be the very first thing on your mind. Without a doubt, the company plan is the most crucial written document in the early phases of a company. Small business plans communicate goals, research, and your thoughts to others in a manner. The longer the company plan, the less likely it's to get funding. Make sure that it stays simple: The plan should contain the promotion, the business concept, engineering and production components, the histories of the creators, and money will be required. Another category of investors is projected to be 350 times the magnitude of the venture capital market. As of 2007, there were 258, 000 active angel investors in the U.S. Angel investors bear very high risk and due to...

Reddit CEO and co-founder Steve Huffman called TikTok "fundamentally parasitic" due to concerns over privacy during an appearance at the Social 2030 venture capital conference this week (via TechCrunch). Huffman specifically called out TikTok's practice of fingerprinting to track devices as being of particular concern. "Maybe I'm going to regret this, but I can't even get to that level of thinking with [TikTok]," Huffman said at the event, "because I look at that app as so fundamentally parasitic, that it's always listening, the fingerprinting technology they use is truly terrifying, and I could not bring myself to install an app like that on my phone." The fingerprinting Huffman is referring to is a combination of audio and browser tracking to determine which users are watching and...

Less than a week after we saw our first images taken with Samsung’s 64-megapixel mobile sensor, the company has announced a new sensor with more than 50 percent more pixels. The Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX, which was designed in collaboration with Xiaomi, is a 108-megapixel smartphone camera sensor that Samsung says is the first to surpass the 100 million pixel milestone for phones. As well as producing high resolution photographs, the sensor can also shoot in 6K video (6016 x 3384) at 30 fps. In reality you’re unlikely to ever need a photo with this high a resolution, so the sensor is also able to produce high quality 27-megapixel images by combining groups of four pixels into one. That results in an image that’s a lower resolution overall, but it should mean it’s far brighter,...

DJI’s newest product, the Osmo Pocket, is the smallest handheld stabilizer the drone/camera company has made. It takes a bunch of things the Chinese company has done really well and puts them into an impressively small form factor. It’s meant to offer drone-like footage in a size that is comparable to a GoPro (even if it can’t take the same kinds of wear and tear). The Osmo Pocket costs $349 and ships December 15th. The Osmo Pocket stands just four inches tall and weighs barely over four ounces (116g). When you turn it off, the gimbal tilts the camera on end so that the whole system can fit into a small case, which then easily slides into a pocket — hence the name. Instead of using the large Zenmuse camera found on the original Osmo or a smartphone as the camera like with the Osmo...
