The French company Blade announces the Shadow Ghost . This is a new cloud PC that replaces the Shadow Box.
With the evolution of cloud computing technology and the increase in the number of very high speed connections, Blade, a French startup based in Paris, had the idea to design computers based on this new generation technology. Its offer is aimed in particular at gamers. But it is not actually cloud gaming insofar as the company provides access to a complete machine remotely. To benefit from this service, it is necessary to be in possession of a special box such as the Blade Shadow Ghost.
The Shadow Ghost is the new version of the brand's device. It succeeds the Shadow Box and promises notable improvements due in particular to customer feedback obtained on this first product.
Shadow Ghost, discover Blade's new cloud computer
Compared to its predecessor, the Shadow Ghost has a more attractive design thanks to its neat curves and futuristic look. We can say that the brand has bet this time on elegance. But the technical configuration is not left out.
In addition to its quite remarkable appearance, the new product offers a 4K UHD display at 60 frames per second and 144 fps in Full HD. It thus has a high graphics performance to give you the possibility of playing in a comfortable way.
For connectivity, several types of ports are available, among others, Ethernet, USB 2.0 and 3.0, HDMI 2.0 and jack. The Shadow Ghost is WiFi and Bluetooth compatible.
Better control of energy consumption
For WiFi, you can connect to a 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz network, while the onboard Bluetooth chip offers version 4.1 of the standard. Thanks to its ingenious design, the Blade Shadow Ghost, although more powerful than its predecessor, consumes three times less power than this one and 30 times less than a regular PC.
The box is silent because it does not have a fan. The cooling is of the passive type. As for availability, the Shadow Ghost will arrive during the last quarter of 2018. We will always have the choice between buying and leasing. The price will therefore vary depending on the package chosen, i.e. € 119.95 for a cash purchase and € 7.95 / month for rental.
