Valve recently added support to the Steam client for hardware encoding on NVIDIA GPUs, allowing gamers to "play remotely from your PC connected to any Steam-enabled system in your home at resolutions up to 1080p at 60 fps." Sam Lantinga of Valve described the effort saying, "We’ve worked closely with NVIDIA to support hardware encoding on GeForce cards with our Steam In-Home Streaming technology, and the result is nothing short of amazing." The NVIDIA hardware encoder is able to encode the frames in real time and allows gamers to play with no noticeable lag.
