You can do this using a service called Shadow Tech. Their website is www.shadow.tech. You are assigned a virtual machine that is the equivalent of a $2k gaming rig. Shadow Tech is flawless. I basically have a surface pro now. It runs the full virtual windows machine flawlessly on my iPad. Installed gears of war 4 and tomb raider (via Steam) both run at max graphics with no hiccups. Even works with my nimbus MFi controller. This is a winner and totally worth $30 per month considering you’re basically getting a $2k gaming PC that will also get upgraded periodically.

I’m not a big PC gamer so I don’t understand the term input lag. I haven’t noticed any lag whatsoever. Plays just like I was playing on an Xbox or PS4. I’m sure serious gamers could nitpick but for me it works great. You can play over cellular assuming your connection is fast enough

wow, cool that makes total sense. It's like "why didn't I think of that" cloud computing solution. Why buy all that super expensive hardware when you can rent it?
