Hi I am pretty new to cloud gaming and I am just trying to understand how it works. My shadow is very inconsistent in performance. Do you connect to a different pc each time you log on? Does it make a difference how many people are playing/are machines shared? The reason I ask is because mine is very inconsistent. This morning when I was playing my game I was holding 120 fps the entire time. Got home from work, got back on, and can barely hold 60 fps now. Also there seems to be a bottleneck somewhere. I can be running around and have 120 fps and then there will be an explosion or something and it will drop to 30 fps and then go back up. Very tuff in shooters where fps can cost you the match.
I been monitoring my network over the pass week and it's not the issue. I have 1gb fiber optics, zero packet loss, and a max of 21ms ping.

I am pretty sure all of us have our own VPCs not shared with anyone and you always connect to the same one.
The VM (virtual machine) itself, which is a collection of files on the shared storage (SAN), is indeed dedicated for each user. However, the specific physical hardware (hypervisor) running the VM changes between sessions. Each server chassis contains a couple of physical GPUs, and each GPU is passed through to a single running VM. In other words, the GPU is not virtualized...but the CPU and RAM are.
Watch this for a good explainer:
