xCloud reportedly bests Stadia in early latency tests at E3, 4 ms vs 21ms of added latency

Forums - Gaming Discussion - xCloud reportedly bests Stadia in early latency tests at E3, 4 ms vs 21ms of added latency

Won't use game streaming on the forseable future but this is good news for people wanting to play xbox games without the HW.

I assume these aren't XB1X's in the building acting like an Azure server like MS said would be possible?

What are the odds the connection being used is Google Fiber? lol

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

The connections in such big events are the best one can pay. But for latency internet speed doesn't matter, but the distance between you and the datacenter + the route the data takes on its trajectory.

And they are claiming the closest data center which was serving the stream at E3 was 400 miles away. If true, then game streaming tech has gotten a huge leap.

Claims are what I was questioning. There have been plenty of claims over the years about what's actually running on the console and what's not, and often enough it's not true. Based on the gap, it just seems too good to be true that's all. If it is legit then it's not bad in this case and Google has a lot of work to do.

In terms of Google Fiber it was just a joke. Google Fiber being used against Google to prove Google Stadia is inferior.

I live about 300 miles away from an Azure server data center. If this is true, I will be able to save a lot of money on gaming in the future especially with xbox game pass.

And how far away was the data center where Google was testing Stadia in March when they got the 166 ms reading? Any traffic shaping or QoS by MS? Without knowing these, this is a BS comparison.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

So, from how many different locations did they test it? Let me guess real quick; one?



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

No wonder Sony partnered with MS over Amazon or Google... That's quite the advantage.



Not going to put too much stock in this. Will be better to compare once both are released and tested at homes rather than at e3.



LTD Sales Predictions: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m
2019 Sales : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m
2020 Sales: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

Having the power to run the games at high fps will certainly help with the feeling of latency.
