If you haven’t noticed, NVIDIA has a tendency of locking quite a few of their features behind a paywall. For instance, if you want to make use of DLSS, you have to have a RTX GPU. If you want to use their cloud streaming service, the host must be using a NVIDIA GPU and have the GeForce Experience app installed…which is only available on Windows. However, no one has to get frustrated at this.
Exactly a year ago I had conducted an overview of how Xbox Game Pass fares on Linux, over on Boiling Steam. One of the critical remarks I had about it was the streaming quality being terrible. Even if you had Gigabit Ethernet, you were forced to use Microsoft Edge to get that so-called “Clarity Boost,” and while it helped a little, the overall image quality was a disappointment. Well, perhaps to no one’s surprise, it appears Microsoft deliberately throttles the video quality on Linux.
