SHADOW, a cloud computing company, unveils its latest venture, Power Upgrade, which aims to help users looking for improved performance with their flagship cloud services. The company is currently offering the Power Upgrade in limited quantities in the European and North American regions.

With Google ending support and discontinuing their cloud-based gaming platform, Stadia, earlier this month, SHADOW recognizes the demand of gamers looking for an alternative service where they can play their favorite games using a powerful PC remotely.

SHADOW’s new Power Upgrade features an AMD EPYC 7543P processor with four cores in eight threads. The graphics card available to users via the cloud at launch will be the NVIDIA RTX A4500, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070-class GPU designed for professionals and cloud computing. Users will have access to 16GB of RAM and a built-in 1Gbps optical connection.

Pricing for the new Power Upgrade service from SHADOW will be $14.99/month in addition to Shadow’s subscription fee for their service which is $29.99. Although the price may seem high, the services provide access to powerful computers built for cloud computing and gaming. Users will also have options to add up to 5 TB of additional storage through separate tiered plans.

Although the service is currently in limited quantities, more Power Upgrade jobs will be available next month. SHADOW assures users that more systems will be added sequentially in the future. SHADOW services are available to over 120 million additional users this year.

It’s been 4 years since we last offered a new configuration due to component shortages and other issues. The release of the Power Update is the symbol of the new chapter that SHADOW is entering: we want to offer new products, new functions and meet all the expectations of our customers. We mostly delivered what we announced in May. We’re particularly proud and excited about all of this, and we can’t wait for customers to tell us what they think of the Power Upgrade.

— Eric Selle, CEO of SHADOW
