Can’t afford an RTX 4000-powered rig? Nvidia GeForce Now will let you rent one for a day

Think of it as the cloud gaming equivalent of hiring a pedalo.

We’ve kind of become used to the idea of monthly subscriptions for our gaming needs. But if even that’s too much for you, Nvidia has now made it possible to utilize its cloud gaming service on a daily basis.

As reported by Videocardz, you can now purchase a Day Pass for GeForce NOW, which gives you access to Nvidia’s servers, powered by the RTX 4000-series graphics cards. It comes in two flavors as well: Priority and Ultimate, similar to the monthly memberships.

As for what you get, well, you’ll be entitled to 24-hour access to Team Green’s cloud, which includes all the usual benefits of a typical subscription, but without actually having to subscribe for a month or beyond.

But not 24-hour gaming

It should be said that you won’t get to play your games through GeForce NOW for the full 24 hours. Depending on which tier you opt for, you’ll get either six or eight hours of actual game time, but you’ll have access to the servers for the entire day.

According to the sign-up page on Nvidia’s website, you can pay $3.99 for the Priority Day Pass or $7.99 for Ultimate. The latter is said to have “exclusive access” to the RTX 4080 servers. You’ll also benefit from up to 4K resolution and 120 FPS.

Oh, but if you want to try before you buy, the report from Videocardz says there’s an option to get a free hour-long session, but I couldn’t see where you would sign up for that. It also comes with ads, because we are, in actuality, living in an episode of Black Mirror (what a cool reference).
