Just today, Nvidia has unveiled a brand new new cloud-based streaming service known as “Grid.”
In short, Nvidia Grid allows users of Nvidia’s Shield line of products (i.e. Shield, Shield Tablet) to stream various, select PC games from Nvidia’s launch catalog. Grid is expected to arrive in Europe sometime in in December, with Asia next year.
For those who own various GeForce GTX graphics cards, Nvidia has also discussed the possibility of extending Grid to Nvidia GPU owners sometime in the future, however their current focus is on the Shield family of products.
Owners of Shield products will be able to access free preview of Grid until June 30, 2015. After that period of time, Nvidia has said they will re-evaluate, and most likely move toward a subscription-based pricing model…like Netflix, but for PC games.
