Download speed 40.0mbps

Upload speed 14.1 mbps

Which one is the correct one ?

(I'm pretty sure you make this up but this can be useful for others)

The first one is correct

I thought It was the second one? Am I overpaying? I pay 150 for internet only where do I check if I have unlimited data? etc?



I game on all consoles and PC

Around the Network

For a cloud game, the demo works surprisingly well, much better than I expected. I'm still not on board with cloud gaming, as there already are many problems regarding game ownership, and adding the constant need for internet only worsens things



You know it deserves the GOTY.

The Switch's USB ports are bandwidth limited so that's why it can't take full advantage of your higher internet speeds...

Although I've seen people claim somehow that they have achieved 100Mbps download, but I have never gotten more than 40Mbps myself.

So I bought this game for the sake of science, since I never played control anyway. Here are my initial impressions based on what I has seen so far.

In graphics mode, it does an ok job. There is no input lag and any studder that happens is likely due to hardware (on the other end), but I still had that, "I am streaming this game" feeling.

Now in performance mode on the other hand...this impressed me. It is a buttery smooth experience and IMO the image quality actually looks a bit better (probably due to streaming less assets). I honestly forget I am even streaming the game, and even under the most stressful combat situations, it remains a smooth experience. The only downfall I can think of (in both versions) is that the sound has like a half second delay at times that you will EASILY notice if looking for it. But it is so small that when just playing the game, you won't really notice it.

This is done on my home Wifi connection, which I will post my speeds below. So far, on wifi, the gameplay is worth the money if you don't mine the concept of streaming. It is a fine alternative for games that don't run on Switch, and it looks AMAZING in handheld mode. I will post my final impressions later today, as I still have yet to test portability. I will be using my 5G phone as a wifi hotspot during my downtime at work, and based on what I saw so far, I expect good things. If this is the case, this will make an excellent portable option for anyone that wants it and has a decent data plan.

My wifi speeds for this test are...

I mean, with those wifi speeds it better work flawlessly! Out of curiosity, what speed do you get when you do the connection test directly on the Switch? Because I get ~85Mbps when I test on my phone, but on the Switch from the identical spot it's only 48Mbps.
