Nvidia has announced that its GeForce Now cloud gaming service now features native support for Apple Silicon Macs.
Previously, the GeForce Now app was able to be used on M1-based Macs, but only through the Rosetta 2 compatibility layer. As Nvidia notes, native support will bring “an overall elevated” experience to users.
“The newest update to the cloud enables the GeForce NOW macOS app to natively support the Apple M1 chip,” Nvidia wrote. “This update provides lower power consumption, faster app startup times and an overall elevated GeForce NOW experience on M1-based MacBooks, iMacs and Mac Minis.”
In addition to native Apple Silicon support, the updated version — version 2.0.40 — also has other improvements like a new “Genre” row in the Games menu and server-side rendering frame rates in the Statistics Overlay.
