South Korean mobile carrier LG Uplus Corp. has said it would launch Nvidia’s GeForce NOW Cloud gaming platform for Internet Protocol (IP) television services and upcoming 5G smartphones.
LG Uplus said it has signed an exclusive deal with Nvidia — a US-based graphics processing unit (GPU) manufacturer — to give access to a rich array of games to its mobile and Internet subscribers.
Since GeForce Now is an open platform, users can connect their accounts from online stores and bring their own games from a server, Yonhap news agency reported on Thursday.
Nvidia provides access to more than 500 games, including Fortnite and League of Legends, which are popular among local gamers.
As Cloud gaming requires a server and rendering graphics needs a low-latency Internet connection, LG Uplus said it will work with Nvidia to establish the system both on fixed-line connections and 5G smartphones.
The carrier said it will focus on Cloud gaming as part of its key 5G services, hoping to attract more customers when 5G smartphones come into market in the coming months.
“Low-latency 5G can maximise the performance of Cloud gaming,” Lee Sang-min, Head of the 5G service at LG Uplus, said.
“By combining LG Uplus’ 5G technology and Nvidia’s GPU Cloud computing, we will provide local users with a new way of gaming.”
Nvidia’s GeForce NOW is expected to be available as early as the first half of 2019, according to an LG official.
Samsung Electronics will launch its first 5G smartphone in April, and its local rival LG Electronics plans to release its 5G model within the first half of 2019. (IANS)

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:
Every child responds differently to disturbing events: What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

"Chargers power all our most essential electronic devices | Photo by Solen Feyissa on Unsplash
"Chargers power all our most essential electronic devices. With more and more devices, more and more chargers are sold that are not interchangeable or not necessary. We are putting an end to that," the report quoted EU commissioner Thierry Breton as saying.
The Commission also wants to unbundle the sale of chargers from the sale of electronic devices, which it says will improve the consumers' convenience. "With our proposal, European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste." In addition, the Commission will require manufacturers to provide relevant information about charging performance. (IANS/MBI)
