I can see clearly now

The latest update to the GeForce NOW app (version 2.0.64) adds support for 10-bit color accuracy. This feature, available to Ultimate members, improves image quality when streaming on Windows, macOS, and NVIDIA SHIELD TV.

Implementing now.

10-bit color accuracy significantly improves the accuracy and richness of color gradients while streaming. Members will especially notice its effects in scenes with detailed color transitions, such as vibrant skies, dimly lit interiors, and various loading screens and menus. It’s useful for non-HDR displays and games that don’t support HDR. Find the setting in the GeForce NOW app > Stream Quality > Color Accuracy, with the recommended default being 10-bit.

Try it on the neon-lit streets of Cyberpunk 2077 for smoother color transitions and navigate the diverse landscapes of Assassin's Creed Valhalla and other games for a more immersive streaming experience.

The update, which is rolling out now, also brings bug fixes and new ways to curate a member's in-app game library. For more information, visit the NVIDIA Knowledge Base.
