Tech Talk / Re: Shadow Cloud Gaming?

I can buy offloading the CPU, memory and storage to a cloud device but I don't quite get how they do the GPU? "Shadow's infrastructure relies on dedicated professional graphics card delivering the same performance as a GeForce GTX 1080."

What if I don't have a card that good in my PC?

Be nice to have a bit more than 12G of RAM.

I was looking for some indication of system requirements for your local PC.

Hmmmmm. Wonder if they would let us do a review?

If you're willing to write it, I'm willing to ask. PM me.

It's the same concept as being able to play PS3 (and PS4?) games on your Sony Blu-Ray purely by internet connection.

I haven't tried it, no need to try it, but it's kind of worth considering.

I forgot to mention that he also makes money from streaming. The gaming aspect came in because people are using it as an example of gaming addiction and saying that gaming is a cause of violence.

I'm not sure I would jump on that dude...for just a couple hundred more you can get a much more capable system with greater longevity. The storage is weak, the RAM is weak, the processor is on the low end of the common list and the GFX card is mid-range at best. I'm assuming some of the other basics like power supply, etc. are lower end too.

If you just want a mid-range system to replace an existing one, sort of like a lateral move to a fresh machine, then maybe you'll be happy. However, if you're looking for a real upgrade, or something that will run high-end games, this isn't the system.

Sorry to be negative, bro.   :-[


Not being negative at all. JH, I appreciate the input.  My problem is my PC is approaching 10 years old. I got it in 2008 - discrete GPU was installed in 2012 and CPU was replaced in 2013. Every thing PSU, Board, RAM (DDR2 btw) and HD are all original. Goes to show how durable this dinosaur is.

See I don't know how to spec it, and most of my gaming choices are more Strategy, RPG, indie stuff too.  I don't do FP shooters (so no Fortnite) just not my thing.  If I had to pick what I'm trying to run this for it would be maybe (?) I know what I get it is going to be light-speed compared to my current machine.  Budget wise I'm trying to keep it under 800.00 realistically.

Stellaris  (My current PC handles it, but there's of course some parts where it's gonna suffer)
Mount and Blade Bannerlord (when that comes out)
Attila Total War or Rome II (?)
(Possibly) Total War Warhammer II (?)
Thrones of Britannia or Three Kingdoms
Witcher III - The Wild Hunt 
Battletech
Endless Space II - Oddly enough the CPU handles it fine, its a just a bit weak on the GPU side.
Hearts of Iron IV (?) 
Distant Worlds 2 (?)
Imperator  (when that comes out)
Field of Glory: Empire (when released)
So you see where I'm at here.

Anybody heard of this service? Its a pretty novel idea. It basically can (purportedly) turn any device, i.e. phone, tablet, labtop, PC desktop, etc. into a high powered rig capable of running the most demanding games. It supposedly does this by utilizing the power of your internet connection. Obviously, this means you'll get better results if your connection speed is stronger.

it is a subscription based service, so this may be an immediate turn off to some...but, I've heard some good things.

Anyway, its too interesting of an idea not to mention...thoughts?

yeah, not really sure what this has to do with game discussions here, except he happened to be playing one...

This garbage belongs in front of a judge, not on a national news site. I don't see how the public interest is served. Having foreigners posting disgusting comments like Dennis' isn't going to help either party here.
