Nvidia Geforce Cloud Gaming Service Returns To Power After Massive Global Outage

Following a global outage, Nvidia Corp.’s NVDA GeForce Now cloud gaming service is back online.

What Happened: The GeForce Now service, which allows users to open the app, view their library, and try to launch a game, experienced a global outage on Sunday. It reportedly prevented users from accessing their game libraries and launching games.

The issue persisted for over two hours before Nvidia identified and resolved the problem.

Despite the outage, games themselves were unaffected and could still be played on local machines. Nvidia’s status page initially confirmed the global outage but later updated to reflect that the issue had been identified and resolved.

At the time of writing, the status page showed Nvidia Global Services as “Operational,” and users on Downdetector also reported no ongoing problems with Nvidia.

The issue was first reported by 9to5Google.

Why It Matters: This outage comes on the heels of a lawsuit filed against Nvidia for allegedly using copyrighted works without permission to train its AI platform.

The lawsuit, filed by three authors, claims that their works were part of a dataset of approximately 196,640 books used to train Nvidia's NeMo AI platform to simulate ordinary written language.

The dataset was reportedly taken down in October due to reported copyright infringement.

In February, Nvidia reported fourth-quarter results and forward guidance that exceeded optimistic forecasts. The company reported fourth-quarter non-GAAP earnings per share of $5.16, which came in ahead of a Street consensus estimate of $4.64.

Moreover, the company’s fourth-quarter revenue of $22.10 billion beat a Street estimate of $20.62 billion.
