As part of your Shadow sub­scrip­tion, Blade prom­ises to of­fer con­tin­ual hard­ware up­grades. When Nvidia re­leases a top-end graph­ics card, Shadow users will get ac­cess to it. “In two years, your [per­sonal] com­puter will slowly start to be out­dated,” Fre­und says. “You have to have a new CPU, or other new hard­ware, and games start to be more and more de­mand­ing. This is not the case [for Shadow]. This is a sub­scrip­tion com­puter, so it’s to­tally up to date every time.” The cost of these up­grades is ac­counted for by hav­ing users share hard­ware, and Blade is also plan­ning to of­fer lower-spec ma­chines at a re­duced rate for users who don’t need the lat­est high-per­for­mance hard­ware for gam­ing.
