Nvidia has partnered with several custom PC builders and router manufacturers to develop GameStream-ready certified PCs and Wi-Fi routers optimized for its game streaming service.

The current list of PC vendors that will provide machines installed with the Nvidia GeForce GTX card and the Nvidia GeForce Experience — hardware and software required for the service — includes CyberPowerPC, Digital Storm, Falcon Northwest, IBuyPower, MainGear and Origin PCV3 Gaming.

Asus, Buffalo, D-Link and NetGear are on-board to ship out GameStream-ready routers. The following routers are optimized for both local PC game streaming with a GeForce GTX-powered machine and Nvidia Grid cloud game streaming:

  • Asus RT-AC66U
  • Asus RT-AC68U
  • Asus RT-N56U
  • Asus RT-N66U
  • Buffalo AirStation Extreme AC 1750
  • Buffalo AirStation Extreme AC 1200
  • D-Link DIR-860L AC1200
  • D-Link DGL-5500 AC1300
  • Netgear Nighthawk R700
  • Netgear R6300
  • Netgear R6250
  • Netgear WNDR4500
  • The GameStream service, which allows the streaming of PC games to a mobile device, launched on Nvidia's Shield handheld gaming console on Oct. 28. More than 50 Windows PC games currently support GameStream including Batman: Arkham Origins and Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. Nvidia plans to roll out cloud gaming services at an unannounced date.
