RDR2 and Destiny 2 on Stadia run at lower resolutions than they do on XB1 X

Forums - Gaming Discussion - RDR2 and Destiny 2 on Stadia run at lower resolutions than they do on XB1 X

Even though Stadia hardware is more powerful than Xbox One X (modern Intel CPU on Stadia vs severely outdated AMD Jaguar CPU on XB1 X, 10.7 tflop GPU on Stadia vs 6 tflop GPU on XB1 X, 16 GB of 484 GB/s RAM on Stadia vs 12 GB of 326 GB/s RAM on XB1 X), it seems that several launch games on Stadia are running at lower resolutions than they run on Xbox One X.

  • With Destiny 2, it’s even more obvious that the game isn’t running at the highest settings. On a Chromecast Ultra, a “4K” stream looked closer to 1080p, and my colleague Tom Warren and I swore that the 1080p streams we were getting in the Chrome web browser looked more like 720p.

    Initially, Google told us that it was using the highest-resolution, highest-fidelity build of Destiny 2 available. But Bungie later confirmed that our eyes weren’t deceiving us. When streaming at 4K, we render at a native 1080p and then upsample and apply a variety of techniques to increase the overall quality of effect,” a Bungie rep said, adding that D2 runs at the PC equivalent of medium settingsThat explains why the Xbox One X build, which runs at a native 4K and with higher-res assets, looks so much better than Stadia.

I play Switch games at 720p and 30 fps, so why would I be bothered by this?

People make a fuss about 1440p on Stadia, but that's nothing compared to the inability of Google to stream Nintendo games. Oh wait... Google's idea for that is Youtube where people can watch others play Nintendo games. What a bunch of fools, they really don't get gaming.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Stadia honestly looks more like a product for people in poorer countries where conventional console or PC hardware is too expensive due to local economics or trade issues.



DOA.

Wasn't RRD2 provided to Google by Rockstar rather than Google themselves doing the port?

There are some exceptions, but generally speaking, poor countries don't have the best internet speeds.

They would not be able to afford hardware, but somehow be able to afford a subscription service + Crazy fast internet?



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

Lol, and I run 1920p on PS4 pro, bruh



XBox One X has the lowest install base of all though

It's not aimed at the pixel counters. It's for those who prefer convenience, mp3 over CD, Netflix over Blu-ray, Digital over physical.
