Nvidia GeForce Now is now finally available in Japan. And one of Japan’s biggest telecom companies KDDI is helping this succeed. KDDI is collaborating with GeForce to enhance the gaming experience with GeForce NOW for its Japanese customers. KDDI joined the other tech giants like LG Uplus, Taiwan Mobile, and Telefonica in making this experience come alive.
GeForce also shook hands with cloud technology to bring Nvidia GPUs and other products to different countries via the cloud. One of the administrative officers at KDDI, Yasuhisa Yamada talked about it in the media calling it an exciting advancement for their company. The company also announced new data centers as a kick-start for this project.
Since it is the one-stop destination for PC gamers for accessories, it has a huge customer and distribution base. As the company is already established in other parts of the world, moving to Japan is only going to upskill the features. The company also has a wide inventory of GTX and RTX servers which deliver top-quality services. GeForce NOW makes use of edging real-time ray tracing technology which gives the high graphic games a mesmerizing appearance. It helps to improve and upscale both the lower-end and upper-end PCs, Android TVs, Macs, and other devices.
GeForce has more than 100 publishers around the world with more than a thousand games on board with the NOW services. Nvidia’s cloud gaming venture promises unmatched possibilities, also on the verge to revolutionize the gaming industry. The feature is capable of converting any decent gadget or device into a gaming rig. It also makes use of the fast 5G technology in its RTX servers to deliver high-efficiency results. This also is a huge differentiator for other investing giants to jump onto for the betterment of future tech.
Nvidia and Japan’s Softbank
In another such news, Nvidia and Softbank had closed an amazing deal worth nearly $40 billion in 2020. The deal was to acquire ‘Arm’ to enforce chip developments and AI computing to its next step. The deal was set to expand the company’s growth by using high-end accelerating innovation and Artificial Intelligence. Softbank had assured to stay connected with Nvidia GeForce NOW in the future with an ownership stake of nearly 10%.
However, the parties recently decide to part ways due to significant regulatory challenges which are hindering the project to hit the floor. Despite healthy meetings between them, Arm is set to go public with the offerings. Founder and CEO of Nvidia, Jensen Huang in his recent statement said, “Arm has a bright future, and we’ll continue to support them as a proud licensee for decades to come”.
Although this news might come in a bad light for the gamers in Japan, in late 2021 QuEST, another tech giant shook hands with Nvidia to deliver next-gen AI solutions. QuEST became NPN (Nvidia Partnered Network) which means the company will have access to Nvidia platforms, software, solutions, etc. This also means the growth and distribution of Nvidia GeForce NOW services across Japan.
