    So with Nvidia grabbing all the attention with GeForce Now, I just found out there is a competitor that actually looks quite a bit better, in some respects: Liquid Sky.

    Anybody try them, or either one yet?

    There is no such thing as Mac gaming. Mac gaming would assume that any Macs in the last few years had powerful enough video cards that could run AAA games, or that there were developers that even cared to port AAA titles to Mac. If you wanna game on a Mac, get a MacPro cheese grater tower (4.1 or 5.1)... put an NVidia 750TI or 980TI in it an install Windows 10 and never boot it into OS X again with it then run Steam. LiquidSky is still limited in bandwidth speed and FPS by the Mac video card. But hey! Things are looking up for Mac Gaming! Apple is moving to AMD GPUs so any serious graphics/video professional (or serious gamer) will soon be moving to more powerful Windows boxes where they can run Steam or Origin or whatever games they want!

    I've tried. It runs wery well at 1080p. Almost like a real computer because there is a slight lag in response when you press a button on your device. You can install anything you want as you are given a windowns machine to play with ;)

    It can run on anything connected to the internet like low end laptops, tablets or mobile phones. All the computation is being done on remote servers and streamed as a moving picture to your machine.
