BLADE SHADOW CLOUD-BASED GAMING PC
Keeping your PC ready to handle the latest games at high frame rates is a chore. The Blade Shadow Cloud-based Gaming PC lets you offload the hassle to the cloud. Instead of packing the box with local tech, it connects to a data center where you're guaranteed eight threads on a Xeon processor, 12GB of DDR4 RAM, a high-end Nvidia card capable of 144Hz 1080p or 60Hz 4K graphics, and 256GB of storage. You'll pay a monthly fee for the service — and the machine, if you don't buy upfront — but the company promises ongoing component upgrades so you won't be left behind with legacy hardware.
