I have been trying geforce now several times this last week since all this talk about streaming and the experience is still bad. Now latency is no issue at all which everyone is talking about but I get pretty much perfect scores, 10-18ms ping to server, 0,0 packet loss and 250/250mbit speed. The games I tried were Batman arkham city, Rise of the tomb raider, world of warcraft and Doom.
The game that ran best was Rise of the tomb raider, the aim felt good, no latency, image quality was a bit worse than normal 1080p, movement felt a bit sluggish not sure if this was the game or streaming. I tried this game just for a few minutes so might not be perfect accurate.
Batman arkham city I just tried again and it just runs okey. Often it just doesn't feel like 60fps at all. It's like you playing with V-sync on and frame-rate is running between 30-40fps. When I got to the church with harley quinn than it felt perfect like smooth 60fps. But as soon as I was outside again it's like running with v-sync on with frames between 30-40fps.
Doom is similiar problem as batman arkham city it just doesen't feel smooth and the aim feel floaty and same with movement. I have completed basically about 8 missions on different days and times, sometimes the experience is awful and sometimes it's okey. I have tried turning v-sync off and on ingame and in geforce now setting it's all the same, maybe turning on v-sync in geforce now on gave a slightly better experience.
World of warcraft was the game that ran the worst, despite the ingame frame-rate monitor showing the game running at 100fps it's still the same problem as Doom and Arkham city, it feels like you playing with v-sync on with 30-40 fps, it just feel sluggish, I tried it today and yesterday. Also the image quality was really bad too.
All test was with mouse + keyboard, I guess with controller the experience would probably be better, my experience is similiar to what this dude is describing here about google stadia:
That is why I say streaming is a waste of time, a geforce 1050 ti would give a better experience despite Geforce NOW has a powerful cpu and gpu equal to geforce 1080. Unless Google can solve this wierd issue I don't see streaming taking off but it seems google stadia have the same issue but much worse.
