Shadow is a high-end gaming PC, but it still needs a little support using your own device and internet connection. In this article, we’ll clarify:
- if Shadow is recommended for your region;
- what download speeds you’ll need;
- which operating systems are supported;
- and what tech specs are recommended.
Shadow’s optimal service area covers most of the West Coast, including California, Nevada, and Oregon. If you’re outside of this service area, you may not receive the best experience.
Although Shadow’s service area covers most of the West Coast, we have customers across the United States who are successfully using Shadow. If you’re in our service area, you’ll only need a download speed of 15mbps.
Shadow supports most major platforms such as Windows, Android, and iOS. We’re currently hosting a beta test for iOS and Ubuntu. For more information, refer to our list of supported operating systems.
In general, we recommend using a device manufactured in 2011/2012 or later. We cannot guarantee any devices or hardware manufactured before 2011 will work with Shadow.
