Nvidia has upgraded its GRID cloud gaming service to support speeds at up to 60fps (frames per second).

The service will also be able to play games at 1080p, which is the same resolution as many games running on Xbox One and PS4.

Users will need to sign up for the Shield Hub Beta group to access the cloud service through a Shield gaming device.

On Nvidia’s blog, the company stated: “Movie services are already streaming at 1080p. But streaming a video game is harder because of the interactivity required for games.

“Streaming games requires the response time from button press to screen action to be in milliseconds.

“We’ve spent years perfecting cloud gaming. As a result, we’re now the first company to stream games at 1080p60.”

More than 35 games are available in the GRID library, which include Batman: Arkham Origins, Devil May Cry 4 and Dirt 3 Complete Edition.

The company also has six data centres offering the GRID service, with plans to roll out another in Central Europe later this month.

This news comes after rumours suggest Nvidia may drop the price of its GTX 980 to £299.

The company may also have plans to introduce a new top end Ti graphics card.
