NVIDIA has just announced that its GeForce Now cloud gaming service will be coming to cars.

For the uninitiated, GeForce Now allows gamers to play their favourite games on any device by means of cloud computing. 

Put simply, the game is hosted on a remote server and streamed to your device. This allows you to play games on devices that may not have the necessary computing power to run them – even graphically intensive games like Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3. And now, this technology is coming to cars.

The first cars to offer GeForce Now will be from BYD, Polestar, and the Hyundai Motor Group, which means cars from Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis.

The benefits are obvious. For EV owners, it gives them an additional entertainment option while they wait for their cars to charge.

And for owners of luxury cars with screens in the back, it would allow rear-seat passengers to play their favourite games on the go. In essence, the ability to stream high-quality games in-car is transforming where passengers can enjoy what's most important to them.

For now, details are quite vague on what’s required for GeForce Now to run in cars. However, NVIDIA did say that it is not limited to just cars powered by NVIDIA’s Drive platform.

This means cars powered by other platforms, such as Tesla, could offer GeForce Now if their cars had the necessary hardware and they wanted to.

Unfortunately, neither NVIDIA nor its launch partners said when users can expect GeForce Now to be available in their cars. We will update this piece once we have more information.
