Well with next-gen video encoding/decoding, 50Mbps is probably far from being a requirement for a 4k stream...

As it stands we are getting 50Mbs 4k@60 streams because o that better encoding. But h, thing will always get better.. but then so will the requirements of which hardware supports it.

Google said 4k60 would require 30 mbps.

"So with Project Stream [the beta test for Stadia], we recommended and set a threshold of about 25 megabits per second in order to enjoy 1080p / 60 frames per second," Harrison said. "In fact, we only used about 20 megabits per second. But we gave ourselves a little bit of a buffer in the calculations. When we launch, because we’ve made some very significant improvements to our encoder, our streamer, and our compression algorithms, we will get 4K / 60 frames per second in about 30 megabits per second. And then if you are at a lower resolution, you will obviously use significantly less bandwidth."

Yeah, that's not confusing at al....... so he basically is saying you will need 25Mbs for 1080p/60 and also that you will need 25Mbs for 4k/60?

Alright, I am going to leave this alone. November is just right around the corner.

Currently they need 20mbps for 1080/60fps. After everything is said and done they expect 30mbps for 4k/60fps

EDIT : and ofcourse the hardware will matter but the fun fact is you wont need to drop 300/500 on a console since google is making the hardware investment

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.
