Your underpowered PC can now pack the punch of high-performance GeForce GTX GPUs with GeForce NOW.

The service is now available in pubic beta for Windows- and Mac-based desktops and laptops in most of North America and Europe. If you're into PC gaming and assuming you have a solid wireless connection, it means you can take your collection on the road without the need to have a gaming laptop.

Probably the biggest new feature of the GeForce Experience is Nvidia Freestyle.

Tap into incredible PC gaming from your Mac and Windows PC and play at high resolutions and smooth frame rates. Not to be confused with the identically named GeForce NOW subscription service for NVIDIA SHIELD, the GeForce NOW service for Macs and PCs is a compute time rental service, with players renting a stipped down virtual machine that can be used to run already-owned games from Steam and other services.

Starting today, the game-streaming service, which launched a successful beta last summer, is available as a free beta compatible with most Windows-based desktops and laptops.

Supported games on GeForce NOW are instantly installed onto your cloud gaming rig in seconds, and automatically applies the latest patches to games and NVIDIA Game Ready drivers.

The cloud-based nature of the service also provides a game syncing service, allowing you to start a game on one device and carry on with another device.

If you like to tinker with Ansel, there are, similarly to above, new photo filters to apply with the ability to apply several filters to get the games action shots looking just how you would like.

Nvidia's streaming service, GeForce Now has always been exclusive to the company's Shield line up of devices. Over 150 popular titles are included in the game compatibility list, though the Rockstar Games catalog appears to be missing.

There will even be a color blind mode for those who find themselves unable to play certain games because its coloring makes it too hard to differentiate different aspects of the game's aesthetics.

Over recent times our phones and Windows 10 have added night modes which reduces blue color to reduce eye strain as you game well into the night and Nvidia are also including night mode, which they believe will help you sleep better after a night of gaming.
