With close to every major part of a PC as well as other public offerings coming up with a way to game with the power of a GTX1080 and I7 8700K with 32GB RAM and (like seriously peeps, no real noticeable latency when compared to playing a game, even shooters on the very same rig (which - with 60 MB download 20 upload internet connection - Both Nvidia’s option ”Geforce Now” as well as “SHADOW GAMING”, with the later being my favorite on account of it seamlessly playing and seamlessly SWITCHING... on everything I have with a screen and an internet connection is just the bees knees.
Confirmed seamless and latency free gaming tested with Shadow Gaming Services include: android tab or phone, iPad or iPhone, MacOSX, WIN10, Linux, their own set top box for 65 inch type 4K 60FPS STREAMING performance AND just starting beta testing an app for the Apple TV 4K as of last night. Also, they flat out give you admin rights to a windows rig. You can load Music Production software or 4K vid editing for all they seem to care - it’s yours until you cut the bill off. Most competing services like Gefore now give an Android desktop like interface with limited launchers or worse yet, Steam only access considering the way everyone and their Moms lovers developer has their own game launcher now. This is going to change the PC Gaming landscape, I just don’t know how much. It’s like an old similarity between it and the benefits of some sort of public transportation.... People just love their Cars. Cars in this case being their own best PCs. So it wont be immediate, but with Google, Intel, NVIDIA and 3rd party’s specializing in it like Shadow it will change a little, at least.
