NVIDIA has announced that with the purchase of a GeForce RTX 40 Series GPU, you will receive three months of access to PC Game Pass. The graphics cards included in this promotion are the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060, RTX 4060 Ti, RTX 4070, RTX 4070 Ti, RTX 4080, and RTX 4090. We assume that this offer is valid for both desktop and laptop models. This offer is available for both reference models (Founders Edition) and customized models from NVIDIA partners.
This offer is quite appealing, as it is much more attractive than giving away a specific game. That game may or may not appeal to the user, and once they have finished playing it, the offer is over. In this case, things are much more interesting, as you can play more than 100 games for three months. It is also more interesting for NVIDIA, as providing a PC Game Pass for three months likely costs them less than including a triple-A title. However, given the current prices of GPUs, it probably matters little to them.
In addition to the PC Game Pass with your GeForce RTX 40 GPU, it is also worth mentioning GeForce NOW
Besides the PC Game Pass offer for users who buy an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40, there are also holiday offers for their cloud service. The company indicates that if you subscribe to a six-month GeForce NOW membership, you will also have free access to 3 months of PC Game Pass.
Yes, it sounds strange for a cloud-based platform to offer access to games that you need to download and install, not to mention requiring a powerful PC. The reason for this offer makes sense, as all PC Game Pass games are already accessible from GeForce NOW. So from the cloud, you can enjoy the Xbox catalog on PC for three months at no additional cost.
Of course, none of the offers are significant enough to purchase a GPU or GeForce NOW just for the PC Game Pass. However, if you are planning to buy a modern GPU or switch to the cloud, it is what you get.
The company takes the opportunity to announce three games that now support NVIDIA DLSS
Wrapping up the news, NVIDIA indicated that three games will receive its DLSS scaling technology throughout this week. These games will benefit from dramatic performance improvements, ranging from a 66% increase to doubling the performance. The games are:
– Gangs of Sherwood, available starting November 30th with DLSS 2 and DLAA. GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics card users will enjoy an average 66% performance boost at 4K with all settings maxed out, thanks to DLSS.
– Last Train Home, available starting today with NVIDIA DLSS 2. GeForce RTX 40 Series GPU owners can double their performance at 4K and the most demanding graphical settings by enabling DLSS.
– Satisfactory, which has recently updated to Unreal Engine 5, now supports DLSS 2 and DLAA. GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards will see an average performance increase of 71% when playing at 4K with all settings maxed out.
