Blade’s Shadow is a cloud-based gaming PC that frees you of the hassles of dealing with a desktop computer. The idea is simple. Give users access to high-end, professional-grade servers. That idea is finally a reality. With Shadow, you have access to their servers—meaning you get all that computing power without any of the maintenance or upgrade worries.
It works like this. You purchase the “box” and pay a monthly subscription. The box measures only 7.5 X 7.5 X 4.33 inches, and weighs less than 2 pounds. Packed into that tiny package, however, is all the computing power you could ever need. You get eight dedicated threads on an Intel Xeon server, 12 GB DDR4 RAM of memory, 256 GB of storage, and a single-user high-end Nvidia graphics card. Shadow connects with and instantly sends data from your peripheral equipment—mouse, controller, keyboard—to the system and receives back the information it needs to keep you playing. All of that information is managed by a highly secured local data center. This service even allows you to access the servers when you’re not by the box. You can use your smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
The best part of this service is that you don’t have to worry about your machine breaking down or getting outdated. Blade takes care of all maintenance and updates/upgrades. You’ll be playing the best games without ever having to worry about your computer being able to handle the load.
