Shadow Game Streaming – Shadow Tech gaming with low end laptop review

hi guys welcome to my video what I want to do today I want to talk a little bit about a product that I've just discovered now I'll give you a bit of a backstory up until recently I had a gaming laptop it was a you know a decent gaming laptop I used to play pub G on it PES 2019 so on that was come up to Christmas time a little bit short on cash I've got two kids so I didn't really find much time I was able to get out to the actual gaming laptop itself because it was sort of you know quite quite a chunky machine so I'd have to physically sit down for a few hours and play it so I wasn't getting much use out of it so I thought I'd sell it no that was a couple months back so being allowed to a gaming laptop the last couple of months now to replace the gaming laptop I bought just sort of a cheap laptop and I bought a Lenovo yoga book which is if anyone does know it's like the thinnest little portable laptop you can get sure you know you know it is literally got it scott doesn't even got keys it's you know super super thin i bought this just for sort of watching YouTube videos and just liked sort of web browsing I never thought you know I could game on something like that I mean I downloaded Steam on it tried to run a couple of games and you know they wouldn't run at all now I started looking into then game streaming and there's a couple of options a couple of in better a bit better taste testing at the moment so it's sort of like the gods was it the GeForce now which I've signed up for but haven't had a code to try that out yet they got the Google project stream which I think they're only doing that in America at the moment again have another chance to test that out but if you love your watch some videos and then I came across a company called shadow what shadow does it's basically you rent in a high-powered PC and the app runs on you know whatever device you may have and effectively it streams the PC screen of this powerful computer to your screen so you can run like top quality games without having to have the top quality sort of Hardware on your computer and I was a little bit skeptical I mean we Internet speech is not great you know read some bad stuff you know if you know it's not great then you know the poor experience happened really pleasantly surprised now I'm going to show you my setup in a second just take you through how it sort of works and yeah I'm quite surprised and is to be fair one of the best things have probably found in the last the last couple of years in terms of you know in internet and and gaming experiences and stuff like that so I'm gonna show you a little bit about it I've got a code down down the bottom there if you guys want to try out as well I'm not not sponsored in any way you bought by shadow I'm just you know used it and thought thought it's a really good product and I said there's campaña off code on the bottom if you guys want to try it out is twenty six pound a month to use so if you want to give it a go for a month it can cost you sixteen pound you can cancel at any time as well which is great so if you try it out that's not for you you've got nothing to lose puffin a 16-pound that they hate trying to find it out but I think it's well worth it and I'll show you why now ok guys this my setup I've got the Lenovo yoga book we've got a xbox360 controller and we've got a micro HDMI to HDMI which has gone to my big-screen TV up there as I mentioned the nova yoga book is thin thin as anything so thin in fact it like I said it uses micro USB and mic HDMI connections so yeah what Warren do I'm just gonna show you how this app works and just show you you know what you can do with it so I'm by no means a professional YouTube streamer so or youtube video maker so this is gonna be a performer video I'm afraid so what we do and this is the desktop of my yoga book what we'll do first we'll do a speed test just to show what sauce speeds and get in I'm on Wi-Fi at the moment with the yoga book and if we just type it in speed test what sort of speeds and get in start okay so again well 56 55 megabits a second which is probably the faster ever seen my internet which is great usually it's about 20 to 30 Meg and this this works fine with sort of 20 to 30 Meg speeds as well so as long as you're getting sort of half decent internet speeds this will work great so I set the internet speeds I'm getting natively in the house here and now the way you start shadow is you've got this little icon on the bottom here effect like that you get the the sort of shadow app interface that comes up here now you can see there's a few different options you got automatic band width configuration so it'll automatically change your bandwidth depends on your internet speed I just set mine to 20 megabits a second as I mentioned my interest usually about 20 or 30 got launched in full screen mode and USB over IP so with the USB you know connected that will work through the shadow app as well so what we'll do if we click start down the bottom here I'm just going to do now is it's finding found shadow and well there are so quick it just loaded up pretty quickly there so see what it does it's now found a know much as close to don't ya we are live so I'm gonna make some mistakes let's try that again starting again let's see if I go ever closer to do this again so found shadow shadow started waiting for video and it's loaded up so effectively what this does as I was mentioning it streams a powerful PC to whatever device you're using so we've now got a new desktop as such and if I press ctrl Windows an F it'll go to small screen so as you can see my my desktops behind it and then you've got this this new desktop setup here so if I put it fullscreen again and as you can see on here already I've downloaded steam and I've got probably Evolution Soccer 2019 and Pub G installed now what I'll do if I start up well actually before we start that up well do I'll connect it to my big-screen TV through the micro HDMI port here so plug that in screen goes off and then up here you'll see the screen connected to my TV the good thing with this is because when you're running these games your physical PC is not using any processing power as such apart from you'll have in the shadow app running I can get about 9 hours battery usage up to this so effectively I could game on this ridiculously thin laptop in full graphics for about nine hours connected to my computer and use my xbox 360 controller so we're just starting up now so Konami so you shut the home screen if I press on here there's absolutely no input lag whatsoever when you press in the buttons don't know how clear this is gonna come up butter for you bring me control a little bit closer as soon as I tap the button the reacts on the screen which is one of the things I was a little bit apprehensive about I thought you know it's it's gonna be major input lag considering I'm you know running an Xbox 360 controller through a USB adapter to a micro USB connection through a you know effectively not a live desktop and streaming that across the internet I thought there's gonna be lag but you can see as soon as you tap the button it just goes to the next screen super fast so we just start the game Liverpool against Arsenal you see that full graphics the graphics are on ultra settings running from as I mentioned this tiny little laptop so we're gonna do and I put the camera down now it's a little bit awkward for me here so I'm gonna try and get this on camera as much as I can so if I put my controller just in front okay I'm just gonna skip then you start so here we go now adolphus is gonna pick up on camera but you know actually you just go down so you can get the screen in the background there you go so this is running full HD full graphics no input lag whatsoever as soon as I tap the button reacts on the screen and it's just it's a really really good setup I find the fact that I you know don't have to have a powerful PC and I can play you know on my big-screen TV lady with you know I'm like my controller not using it hardly any battery on the system you know it's a really really good setup a con you know I can't praise it enough really now you still have you know simply tap the Windows key it'll knock the the a boat so you started again from there if you wanted to I can close it down so if I close that one down what we'll do now we'll start pup G as well just show you pop G running just starting up are you trying to zoom in a little bit more so you can see the graphics a bit better I'm never gonna be able to pick up the full graphics through my camera but just take my word that the okay didn't you start the app there we go so yeah just take my word for it the graphics are full ultra graphics um that second hair oh good okay so you can see pop G's just started okay so if we go into settings yeah as you can see everything's an ultra everything's turned on if I could start hopefully we'll have to match for someone quickly if I can still go back into it as I said we are live so just typical this isn't connected to anything right now you zoom up a little bit just so you can see what I'm doing oh they're up okay so just loading up now Pub G is quite difficult to play with the controller but it can't be done I have had a few games with the xbox360 controller and you know sitting in my live in my bedroom with it on the big screen isn't not a bad experience at all so as you can see here there moving around we drink this on camera but better again no input lag at all I'll show you by pressing the button here as soon as you press something it reacts on screen and again we've got full ultra settings runs at a very very high frame rate and yeah again very very surprising how how good this actually works so I can't recommend it enough as I mentioned there's a link in the description below so you can get tampon off your first month with Chado let me just close this down so I'm sure you going back to my one plug the HDMI the other thing as well when you are actually using the shadow interface here the download speed is absolutely insane so because this is connected that you know the desktop that you're projecting onto your your device is connected to their own internet connection if I do a speed test again go to speedtest.net you can also use touch screen as well so you know again so on the shadow interface right now and touch screen works as it would on a on your native desktop so you can see their internet speed is like 900 megabits a second which is absolutely crazy I managed to download pop G and also pears in literally like five five minutes which my guards gone over that wasn't megabits but yeah it's as fast as anything that the actual internet that you use and from them again what would do to just come up with that so you can see still run in my desktop in the background if I close this down you know eyeshadows close down and then we're back to my normal desktop on the on the yoga book which cannot can't run anything but internet browsers and small apps on so highly highly recommend shadow give it a try as mentions it's a code down the bottom if you want to ten pound off your first month and yeah give it a go it's a hundred percent worth it and I can't actually believe how well it all works thanks a lot hope you
