SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CES--NVIDIA today announced that the high-performance GeForce NOW(TM) cloud gaming service will be coming to cars. Hyundai Motor Group, one of the world's largest automakers with the Hyundai, Kia and Genesis brands; BYD, the world's leading manufacturer of new energy vehicles (NEVs); and Swedish premium electric vehicle and lifestyle brand Polestar are the first working with NVIDIA to deliver GeForce NOW in their vehicles.
Today's announcement expands NVIDIA's vehicle infotainment offerings, which include a suite of products and services that improve the cockpit experience. Coupling NVIDIA's heritage in gaming and infotainment, GeForce NOW can stream a real-time, full PC-gaming experience beyond desktops, laptops and mobile devices, now to software-defined cars.
