At Vagon, we’ve been getting a lot of attention from gamers since we’ve launched. At first, we’ve always focused on the needs of creatives, and we hadn’t placed a focus on cloud gaming just yet.
However, some of our users figured out ways to leverage Vagon infrastructure for cloud gaming and were nice enough to let us know. So, starting now, we decided to provide gaming support with an additional piece of software called Parsec.
Now, you can play games on a 16GB NVIDIA GPU inside Vagon computers, and change the performance of your computer anytime according to your gaming needs.
We will be here to support the gaming community as much as we can, your feedback and support are very important for us as well.
You can find a mini-guide below to learn how to run your Vagon computer with Parsec and play games on it.
It’s an initial version of Vagon Gaming, we look forward to adding some new features geared towards gamers as well… Stay tuned!
