Nvidia’s GameStream Co-Op will let you stream games to a second PC

Nvidia GameStream

Nvidia has announced a new streaming mode for its GeForce Experience called GameStream Co-Op. The feature will allow you to invite your friend for a co-op gaming session. Similar in functionality to the PlayStation 4’s Share Play, GameStream Co-Op lets another player join the game, with the ability to take control of the gameplay. The feature also enables network co-op in games that have thus far been local co-op only, with integrated voice chat to boot.

The advantage with GameStream Co-Op is that the invitee does not need to own a copy of a game to be able to co-op. And while the person initiating the stream needs to have an Nvidia GTX 650 or higher video card, the endpoint can be any machine that has an Intel Core i3-2100 CPU or higher with H.264 video encoding enabled. Here are the system requirements needed for the feature to work:

Host PC

  • GPU: GeForce GTX 650 or higher graphics card (Desktop only, notebook support coming soon)
  • GPU driver: 355.60 or higher
  • CPU: Intel i3-2100 3.1GHz
  • Memory: 4 GB or higher
  • OS: Windows 7, 8, or 10
  • Router:
    • Minimum: 802.11 a/g router
    • Recommended: 8.02.11n 5Ghz router or Ethernet
    • Recommended Network Bandwidth: 7 Mbps upstream
  • Games: DirectX 9 or higher games running in fullscreen exclusive mode (Games must support fullscreen exclusive mode to work with the BETA version of GameStream Co-Op.)

Guest PC

  • GPU: No minimum requirement
  • CPU: Intel i3-2100 3.1GHz or higher
  • Memory: 4 GB or higher
  • Software: Chrome version 44
  • OS: Windows 7, 8, or 10
  • Router:
    • Minimum: 802.11 a/g router
    • Recommended: 8.02.11n 5Ghz router or Ethernet
    • Recommended Network Bandwidth: 7 Mbps downstream

GameStream Co-Op will be available in beta form next month.
