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

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit: 

So, the article is a bit misleading. It's comparing total latency vs total latency rather than additional latency vs additional latency, with 2 different games, one of which is a considerably more laggy game than the other. Here is the actual comparison:

xCloud- 4ms of additional latency compared to playing Halo 5 locally on Xbox One
Stadia- 21ms of additional latency compared to playing AC Odyssey locally on Xbox One (

67 is prettt bad esspecially if it fluctuates but holy hell 166 is terrible.

That's 67 total ms for xCloud, not 67 additional ms. So it's only like 4ms more than playing Halo 5 locally on an Xbox One. And the nearest server in the test was 400 miles away. That's pretty impressive, and good news for me since Microsoft's nearest Azure center is about 300 miles from me.

MS will win the cloud gaming wars.

Sure it wasn't a PC behind the curtain running the 'cloud' :) I would take these results with a grain of salt. It's not that hard to get a dedicated line for demonstrations like this.

The distance isn't the problem, a round trip through fiber over 400 miles only adds 6.14 ms. Yet if your stuck with your pedestrian connection, a lot of hops and traffic jams will quickly add to that number. So perhaps Google's 166 is a better indication of real world results.

XCloud beats the speed of light!



Microsoft is in the driver's seat, but Google pushing them is good. I think Gamer Pass + xCloud has a great chance of becoming the Netflix equivalent of game streaming.



Yikes thats actually impressive

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.

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
