Nvidia's cloud-gaming software GeForce Now now has native support for M1-based Mac devices, after the release of Fortnite for iOS and iPadOS earlier this year. With the most recent update to the GeForce Now programme for macOS, Nvidia has made the modification. The following are the specifics.

M1 Macs Now Support Nvidia GeForce Now

The latest version (2.0.40) for Nvidia's GeForce Now cloud-gaming programme has been released. The update also adds native support for Apple's M1-based Mac devices, such as MacBooks, iMacs, Mac minis, and Mac Studios, in addition to Amazon's popular title Lost Ark.

On M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max, and M1 Ultra-powered computers, the GeForce Now software on macOS will now be able to give enhanced performance while consuming less power, according to the firm. These include the M1 Pro and M1 Max MacBooks from last year, the iMac 2021, the newest Mac Studio, and more. {}

"On M1-based MacBooks, iMacs, and Mac Minis, this upgrade enables lower power consumption, faster app launch times, and an overall elevated GeForce NOW experience," the company noted in a blog post.

The update also includes a new "Genre" tab at the bottom of the Games menu, which allows gamers to quickly browse games by genre. According to Nvidia, this would aid gamers in discovering new games to play on the cloud gaming platform. A new Streaming Statistics Overlay for server-side rendering frame rates is also included in the upgrade. Aside from this, the most notable feature of the current GFN 2.0.40 update is the arrival of the free-to-play action RPG title Lost Ark to practically all devices. Despite the fact that Amazon does not officially support macOS, GFN members can now play the game on their Mac devices. God of War and Dune: Spice Wars have both been added to the company's game catalogue.
