What the heck is a GAMING SERVER??



Thanks to Shadow for sponsoring today’s video! Check them out at https://lmg.gg/c2eqf

Cloud gaming is getting more popular, and we’re not strangers in how they work, but have you actually thought about what the hardware looks like when you play games or whatever on them? We convinced Shadow to send us one of their units, and they actually agreed to it… I hope they knew what they were agreeing to.

Check out the video where we toured their office and even their data center at https://youtu.be/0BQ4bXNdEQI

  1. "no getting around around windows update" you say? One of the reasons I want Linux to keep getting better and gain market share. I prefer Linux updates… they go while I work only when I want and they almost never (other than Nvidia drivers… GRRRR) require a reboot.

  2. this shit is the future. but the longer term future is even better: a decentralised gaming server where everyones computer is the server collectively. and all data is processed and shared world wide. with a blockchain that would work.
    imagine an app that allows a network to participate in decentralised cloud computing from everyone for everyone.
    depending on how long your machine is supplied to the network and how powerfull it is, you would get compensation.

  3. Hmmm given the Quadros I would suspect that they'd use Nvidia GRID (like SRIOV but not really) to give each gamer a virtual GPU. This way they can have multiple gamers getting a hardware accelerated experience via those GPU's. At least they seem to have the hardware to do that if they like.
