Google today announced a new set of Chromebooks from its partners that are built for cloud gaming. It is important to note that Google recently announced that Stadia cloud gaming platform will be killed early next year. So, these newly announced Chromebooks will allow gamers to enjoy cloud gaming through three services: Xbox Cloud gaming, NVIDIA GeForce Now and Amazon Luna.
The first set of cloud gaming Chromebooks are built by Acer, ASUS and Lenovo.
These laptops feature 120Hz+ displays, RGB gaming keyboards with anti-ghosting capabilities, WiFi 6 or 6E for high-speed wireless connectivity and immersive audio.
Google partnered with NVIDIA to bring support for GeForce NOW’s RTX 3080 tier to cloud gaming Chromebooks, allowing you to enjoy games up to 1600p resolution and 120 frames per second. The GeForce NOW app will come preinstalled on gaming Chromebooks.
These cloud gaming Chromebooks come with a three-month trial to Amazon Luna+ and NVIDIA GeForce NOW’s RTX3080 tier.
