The firm noted that the GeForce Now software for macOS will now be able to give an increased performance while consuming less power on PCs powered by the M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max, and M1 Ultra. These include the M1 Pro and M1 Max MacBooks from last year, the 2021 iMac, and the newest Mac Studio.

“This update optimizes power consumption, app launch times, and the overall GeForce NOW experience for MacBooks, iMacs, and Mac Minis with M1 processors,” the firm noted in a blog post.

The update includes a new “Genre” link at the bottom of the Games menu, allowing gamers to quickly browse across games classified as specific genres.

According to Nvidia, this will assist gamers in discovering new games to play on the cloud-gaming platform. Additionally, the update adds a new Streaming Statistics Overlay that displays server-side rendering frame rates.

Apart from these, the current 2.0.40 update for the GFN platform adds the free-to-play action RPG title Lost Ark to practically all devices.
