The latter, which cost $ 4.99 / month, offered priority access, extended session times, and RTX support. NVIDIA announced today that the free tier will remain, but the Founders tier will no longer be available to new subscribers.
Instead, NVIDIA is introducing a new Priority subscription for $ 9.99 / month.
