GeForce Now allows you to play at 1600p on Macs with M1

NVIDIA will enhance the GeForce Now experience with RTX 3080 on laptops equipped with the Apple M1 chip: MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro. Specifically, a new update to GeForce Now will allow gaming at 1600p. Both notebooks have 2,560 × 1,600 pixel displays, so NVIDIA will support their native resolution (previously, it was only possible to reach 1080p).

Furthermore, the company has not mentioned whether it will support 1600p gaming on the 14 "and 16" MacBook Pro with M1 Pro and M1 Max, which have higher resolution displays than the 13 ″ Pro and Air.

In the same blog post, NVIDIA announced a limited-time promotion for GeForce Now RTX 3080 or Priority subscriptions of six months to get a free copy of Crysis Remastered on the Epic Games Store. Additionally, the company is rolling out some features for PC and Mac users to link NVIDIA and Ubisoft accounts to launch Ubisoft Connect titles faster.

Mac is an important platform for GeForce Now. After all, those who own a Windows-based gaming PC already have access to the most popular titles. Despite Apple's latest chips possessing powerful GPUs, the biggest game developers and publishers haven't paid much attention to the Mac over the past few years. Additionally, many of the games that ran on Mac did not survive macOS 'transition from 32bit apps, and with M1 programs that weren't reworked to run natively must be emulated via Rosetta 2.

The NVIDIA GeForce Now subscription with GeForce RTX 3080 is available for pre-order at a cost of € 99.99 for six months and also promises eight-hour gaming sessions. The Priority subscription, with a "premium configuration" with RTX graphics (up to 1080p at 60 fps) costs € 49.99 for six months or € 9.99 per month and has a limit of six hours. The free level on a "basic rig" has a limit of one hour. Any of these should work on a Mac M1, but you'll only get native resolution rendering on the most expensive.
