Geforce Now: Nvidia provides a list of titles below 60 fps

Quibbles with "up to" can be found again and again in subscriptions and so also in Geforce Now, where the topic was now on the table. Because not all games run with up to 60 fps: Nvidia has now published a list of games that are limited to fewer frames.

If you invest more money, you get more fps. Sounds fundamentally plausible and also applies to Geforce Now. Those who invest 50 euros a year get the "Premium Rig" and those who invest 100 euros get exclusive access to RTX-3080 servers. While the quality is limited to 1080p and 60 fps with the small subscription, it is 1140p and 144 Hertz with the large subscription. So much for the starting point.

Reddit user then found out about a case from Nvidia, where the game seems to be limited to less than 60 fps, and the level 2 support provided the appropriate answer: Some games are artificially limited to less than 60 fps to deliver a smoother gaming experience. Of course, this raised the question among users as to whether it still falls into the "up to 60 fps" or whether it should be declared as "up to 45 fps"?

Nvidia at least opted for the transparent approach and a few days after the support request published a list of games that are limited to less than 60 fps. This applies to the small subscription with the "Premium Rigs", in which graphics cards are inserted that achieve roughly the performance of a Geforce RTX 2080. In a large subscription with more powerful hardware, you can also achieve better performance. According to Nvidia, the Optimal Playable Settings (OPS, which users can normally change, but not always) are decisive. This is where the list that has now been published comes into play.

"For our Priority members, the maximum number of frames rendered per second is typically set to 60 or higher for most of the 1,100+ games we've supported to date. There are a few exceptions that we've found that They don't run well enough at 60 FPS on the GPUs used by the priority members, so the default OPS cannot be overridden for these particular graphics-intensive games, to ensure that all priority members have a consistent, high-quality experience. However, we continue to stream these games at 60 FPS. "

The latter only applies to the video stream delivered for the games concerned. The games in the following list are rendered with correspondingly fewer frames.

This may be a problem for enthusiastic gamers with a sufficient budget, but for gamers in a less comfortable position, Geforce Now remains an alternative because it is far less costly, even if compromises have to be made.
