Shadow, the gaming desktop in the cloud is about to blow away the competition as it announces a new line of game streaming that includes RTX tech.
Just in time to beat Stadia to the punch, Shadow is filling stockings with a new range of virtual services that allow gamers to take tailor their game streaming experience. The European cloud gaming service has just announced a new tiered range of cloud desktops that provides everything from HD gaming on the go through to full Titan RTX ray tracing capability.
The service, that gives gamers a powerful cloud-based Windows PC has expanded the base Shadow offering to the following three tiers:
- Boost, at £12.99 per month (£14.99 without commitment), to play all games in Full HD from any screen
