The Cloud-Game streaming has existed all the while, and now it is at this stage that Nvidia’s Grid based streaming service will enter the scene to change the way how gamers play the game in faster and experience the gaming they never had before. The enabling technologies of Grid are super-low-latency from controller streaming to graphics to game streaming.

It is virtualization, so that many gamers can share the Geforce cloud gaming supercomputer together. The next step can put thousands of Grid GPUs into data centers around the world, and it is an effort that put 20 petaflops of graphics processing compute power into the cloud, so that is equal to the fastest supercomputer in the US.

Similar to Onlive, Nvidia’s streaming service will allow users on the Shield tablet to enjoy PC games in 720p 60fps, which considering the size of the screen should offer optimal visual fidelity. It might be a bit less if user hook the Shield up to an HD television set. The time for a game to boot up after they click on it in the Hub App is 20 to 25 seconds.

Grid on-demand game streaming service will be launching in Europe next month and Asia Pacific the next year. Currently servers are located in Virginia and Oregon and users will need at least a 10Mbps connection with low-latency to get the 60ms claimed by Nvidia. The Android 5.0 update will be landing this month also, probably alongside or near to the official Grid update.
