Signed up for https://shadow.tech/gben

So far I’m blooming impressed, you get a dedicated graphics card (I have an Nvidia Quadro P5000) in mine, 12gb RAM and 8 dedicated threads could (Xeon processors)

It runs stuff really well and I’m getting lag and stuff as far as I can tell. I’m on my month trial (£15) but if I continues as it is I’ll be keeping it.

Basically it’s a gaming rig in the cloud, you can install anything you want so I’m going to use for games as well as coding and stuff for my degree I’m starting.

£25 quid a month seems a blinding deal in my head.

Referal Code: KELRNNR0

Gets you £10 off and me £10 account credit

Screenshots of Spec etc.:

It does look cool. Might be worth checking out when Cyberpunk hits.

EDIT: Missed the stuff about coding and all that. That's really nice.

Night Call: a game what I worked on. Out now!

Yeah it’s cool, it’s basically just windows 10 so can do what the hell you want. They have bastard fast inter webs too so downloads run at upwards on 200Mb/sec top I’ve seen so far was 360Mb/s downloading from the Microsoft Store.

Had a look at the site but it wasn’t clear - how do you access your virtual pc? Through the website?

Been looking at this for a while, and considering if it's good, just getting a bog standard, tiny, quiet unit to use under the TV as a local media storage solution and to connect to this, for the living room. I currently have my gaming pc tower hooked up to the TV, but the sound of the fans and the size of it next to the sofa doesn't make it ideal.

There is an Android and iOS app and a program for Windows, Mac and Ubuntu.

Where are you getting the trial for £15? It's full £25 for the first month on the website for me.

Open the chat bot and ask for it. It gives out a code.

Also I think SAVOO10 should work
