Surviving the GPU Shortage by Using Cloud Gaming?

*GeForce Now *
Not Linux Native but here is a Link to show you how to get it working.
1 hour of free play then 9.99$ a month or 99.99$ a year.
Works with existing purchased steam games! (if available on geforce now also)
You might require a VPN service as it does not cover all the regions of the world.
Minimum requirement for macOS is 10.10.
Minimum requirement of GeForce for Windows PC is 64 bit version of Windows 7.
Android phones work with 2 GB ram.
It requires an internet connection of at least 15 Mbps speed.
You can share your best gaming moments on social media comfortably.

Shadow Cloud Gaming Service
Linux Native!
14.99 monthly or 11.99 for a year commitment.
For this you get:
Dedicated GTX 1080
4 core / 8 thread Processor
12 GB Memory (not sure if this is gpu or cpu memory)
256GB storage upgradeable to 2TB
All running on Windows 10.
You may need a VPN service since Shadow is not available in all nations.
You just need a 15 Mbps internet speed.
You can buy storage from the gaming provider within a range of 256 GB to 2 TB.
You can share files among your gamer friends easily.
You can play the game on any gaming device anywhere and all you need is the app.
Linux app for Ubuntu (you know what that means Linux Mint users!)

Parsec Cloud Gaming Service
Linux Native!
It works on Windows, Mac, Android, Ubuntu and Raspberry Pi 3.
You can stream using your gaming PC or Parsec’s server.
A minimum requirement of 30 Mbps internet speed is required to run Parsec.
It is generally available freely, however depending on the usage you can be charged hourly.
Maximum display output can be of any resolution theoretically.
Server status page! This is a great feature that all services should have.
You can host this yourself but only on windows.
Pay per hour as far as pricing goes. I could only find a reddit post from 3 years ago saying 0.65$ an hour.

Google Stadia

Free month and 9.99$ a month after.
4k 100mbps for smooth play
1080p 50mbps for smooth play

Google Stadia runs without any lag or latency issues on Chromium based browsers.
If you unsubscribe and resubscribe again, you will be able to gain back all the pro games they purchased.
Crowd Play is possible using Google Stadia and users from a live stream can join the game.
It works on Chromium based browsers (such as Brave, Vivoldi, and yes now even Edge), Chrome OS, Chromecast Ultra and any Smartphone.
