My Experience with Shadow PC


#1

Thought best to create a new thread documenting my experience with Shadow.

I’ll start with a picture of my Samsung Note 10.1 (2014) tablet running Shadow :slight_smile:

We are now affiliated with Shadow. Which is nice.

Trying out Resident Evil Revelations that Vred ever so kindly gave me. This is via the NVIDIA Shield TV Shadow App. It’s an old game so I’m not particularly looking for graphical ability, this is a latency test.

So far while using the NVIDIA controller, there seems to be no more input lag than playing locally, literally just turned on Game Mode on my TV and it’s even better.

So how the “Beyond” app works is that you install it on the Shadow PC and it should automatically find games installed (however it’s in beta atm) then shows them to load without having to go into the actual launchers etc via windows. Or you can load into windows with the red button. Looks like this on my phone so you get the gist.

Oh and it’s a quick way to view other files via the app

Edit - won’t let me post again…

Woot woot! The Nvidia shield is still sending out audio via the USB to my dac while Shadow is running, allowing me to enjoy the amazingness of my Sennheiser HD600s…

However, I’m still playing Resi and starting to regret putting the headphones on.

Second edit –

Today was “Shadow World” in France, a press event marking one year since sales started… Here’s some highlights in picture form…

Yup that’s right triple display coming soon… That also means… One Monitor, a tablet and phone at the same time for various tasks if a steamer for example.

Also here’s a CNET article on the “Shadow Hive”

Hey guys - I’m new but was invited to the forums earlier today by @n0tch after talking to him about Shadow

This looks awesome - I’ve just signed up using the code from @VirulentPip and link from @Jester so hopefully everyones a winner with that. Super interested to give this a go though - you have to think this is going to be the mainstream future of PC gaming, it’s more a question of is the boardband speed we get in the UK good enough to handle it…

Will be sure to feedback once my account goes live!

Welcome to the forums Crab. New folk get the next round.

I’ll have a double Black Bush (no ice).

I heard a few things from CES this week on the regional radio about live-stream gaming and how consoles are starting to figure it’s a threat. Apple, Google and Android are all looking in on it too.

Oh hai! :slight_smile: Nice to meet you!

That’s awesome you’ve signed up! And even more awesome you used my code thanks :smiley: Are you on the Shadow EN Discord?

I’m pretty much available 10 hours a day for tech support help on there :stuck_out_tongue:

The CPU is a bit of a bottleneck at the moment, but I’ve seen 3 CPUs in 2 months(1 was rolling out as I joined) so they are constantly tweaking it.

Wait times are up to 15 days atm… But currently 9-11 days… This is due to going from 50K users that took 1 year to get … Then getting 10K over a weekend … Now at 65K+

No problem on using your code! Mutually beneficial after all :slight_smile: I’ve been curious about it for a while but 30 quid for it to be trash was a bit steep for me but with the discount thought got to be worth a punt, especially with a positive review from someone who’s actually used it.

I’m not on the discord yet but I’ll definitely join at some point. Saw they had a bit of a wait on setup, that’s kinda fair enough though. do you know if the paid month starts from when your shard is ready? Pretty hyped to try it out, should be quite the upgrade over my 780ti xD


#10

That’s cool man, yeah definitely worth a shot!

Your renewal date will adjust once activated :+1:

The GTX1080 or P5000 are quite nice indeed. Plus upgrades when needed at no extra cost to sub fee :raised_hands:


#11

Announced today, sign up for a 3 month commitment and get Far Cry New Dawn

This is available to current subs too, all they’ll need to do when it’s live it to add it on their subscription.


#12

Guys I have won a 1 month free of Shadow… If anyone would like this code once I receive it, let me know :grinning:


#13

I have been tempted to look into this after anthem seems to not like my machine though don’t fancy another monthly payment. Much is it again? 35ish?


#14

£26.95 P/M with 256GB… Extra 1TB is £2.95 per month (When it’s available)

No worry about internet. Got 70 down and 20 up ATM though changing to Plusnet this week but speeds shouldn’t change. Though for that price I could get myself a new motherboard CPU and ram paid off in a year
