As announced, the initial companies that are included in the partnership are as follows: Agawi (United States), Cloud Union (China), Cyber Cloud Technologies (China), G-Cluster Global (Japan), Playcast Media Systems (Israel), and Ubitus (Taiwan).

So what is the GRID?

NVIDIA GRID is a server built to deliver 36 times more HD quality game streams alongside with high density NVIDIA Graphics Processing Units. A specialized graphics-application streaming software will be coupled with VGX Hypervisor technology, allowing multiple users per GPU.

Phil Eisler, general manager of cloud gaming at NVIDIA recently stated, “By using the NVIDIA GRID Platform, our partners will allow gamers to play anywhere, anytime, without being tethered to a box.” With three key attributes, such as the densest GPU system architecture, broadest compatibility, and best interactivity, dedicated and casual gamers will experience topnotch personalized performance without being anchored to their usual spot.

NVIDIA demoed the power of the GRID Platform by streaming 1080p resolution games to an LG 55LA6900 Smart TV at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. Vice president of LG Bae-Geun Kang stated, “The NVIDIA GRID Cloud Gaming experience on an LG 55LA6900 Smart TV is beautiful to watch, easy to use, and fun to play. It is just like Netflix for games.”

With services like this from high-quality driven companies such as NVIDIA, gamers are given more opportunities to personalize and easily access the best gaming experience. Let us see how the ‘cloud’ will rain endless possibilities for the gaming community in the future.
