SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

macOS

Your macOS must be 10.10 or higher.

 

INTERNET REQUIREMENTS

GeForce NOW requires a 25 Mbps internet download speed.  We recommend 50 Mbps or higher.

You will need to use a hardwired ethernet connection or 5 GHz wireless router.

If your MacBook does not have a ethernet port, you may need to use an ethernet adapter.   Please see this Knowledge Base article for a list of tested adapters.

MICE AND KEYBOARDS

We recommend a USB gaming mouse. Apple Magic Mice do not have dedicated left/right buttons and a scroll wheel, which are usually needed for games. Logitech and Razer offer many different options.
