On the Road Again: GeForce NOW Alliance Expanding to Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Australia

Bringing more games to more gamers, our GeForce NOW game-streaming service is coming soon to Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Australia.

Turkcell, Zain KSA and Pentanet are the latest telcos to join the GeForce NOW Alliance.

By placing NVIDIA RTX Servers on the edge, GeForce NOW Alliance partners deliver even lower latency gaming experiences. And this gives partners an opportunity to show the value of their broadband and 5G infrastructure to customers.

Gamers get more games, in more places, faster.

Ericsson recently published their 2020 mobility report, noting, “5G population coverage

is estimated to reach 15 percent, equivalent to over 1 billion people.”

Meanwhile, DFC Intelligence reports, “there are now over 3 billion video game consumers around the world.”

Cloud gaming is at the intersection of these two trends.

GeForce NOW is the world’s leading cloud-gaming platform for PC gamers, offering hundreds of games from NVIDIA’s own data centers in North America and Europe.

The service brings real-time ray tracing to today’s biggest blockbusters to underpowered PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, Android and iOS devices.

It also offers an opportunity for the world’s leading telecommunications firms to deliver high-quality, low-latency PC gaming to nearly any device from the cloud. These partners form the GeForce NOW Alliance, a partnership of operators using RTX Servers and NVIDIA cloud-gaming software to expand and improve cloud gaming globally.

It’s our commitment to deliver the best cloud-gaming experience around the world.

GeForce NOW Alliance Grows, Again

The newest GeForce NOW Alliance members join a growing group of telecommunications experts that includes Softbank, KDDI, LG Uplus, Taiwan Mobile and GFN.RU.

Bringing cloud gaming to Turkey, in collaboration with their new gaming platform, Turkcell recently announced GeForce NOW Powered by GAMEPLUS. Gamers who want to get a leg up can visit the GAME+ page to pre-register.

Zain KSA, the leading 5G telecom operator in Saudi Arabia, is nearing a formal launch of its GeForce NOW service. The launch will bring GeForce NOW into the country for the first time.

Founded by a group of avid gamers, Pentanet has built Perth, Australia’s largest and fastest-growing fixed wireless network, delivering high-bandwidth internet services to the Perth metro area as well as fiber throughout Western Australia.

Australian gamers can look forward to PC gaming on nearly any device later this year.

Stay tuned as we work with additional partners to bring cloud gaming to new regions throughout 2021 and beyond.
