RTX 4080 Powered Steam Deck

Thanks to the upgraded Ultimate Tier on GeForce NOW we can run games on Steam deck with the power of the RTX 4080 and make use of the ADA Lovelace architecture.

This means you can run games at Full Ultra Settings with less than 10w power usage on Steam Deck with games pushing over 120 FPS, meaning you will always have the perfect 60 FPS on Steam Deck and even run a bunch of games that aren't officially supported on Steam Deck without the need for installing Windows.

Ultimate members in and around San Jose, Los Angeles, Dallas and Frankfurt, Germany, will be the first to experience the power of these RTX 4080 SuperPODs. Each week, GFN Thursday will spotlight the newest cities with upgraded servers, so make sure to check back each week to see which cities light up next on the map.

Powered by the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace GPU architecture, Ultimate members can play their favorite PC games at performance never before available from the cloud, streaming at up to 240 fps with NVIDIA Reflex to feel like they’re playing on a desktop PC, up to 4K 120 fps with support for DLSS 3 and RTX ON, and ultrawide support at up to 3,840 x 1,600 resolution and 120 fps.

Also starting today, Ultimate members streaming on RTX 3080 servers can take advantage of ultrawide resolutions and HDR on the GeForce NOW PC and macOS apps.

Previous poster is correct. No way to get 4k or > 60 fps on the deck, currently. No linux client, so the you are stuck at browser performance levels.

Not true. Nvidia crap Devs don't want to release a Linux version,which means you need to use the browser on steamdeck. And that's limited to 60fps and HD
