Google yesterday held its new press conference to explain new information about its Stadia platform as its price, games and launch. Although now we have been asked questions, before the presentation, there are dates that come out that help us understand the future that wants to raise the giant of Mountain View. We want to focus on the transfer rates that can make the 4K game possible and how they will translate into “gigas per hour”. First let’s review this slide:
Google says it can offer 4K transmission at 60 fps with a bit rate of 35 Mbps. That’s the maximum point of the requirements, and with 20 Mbps we could “afford” Play at 1080p and 60 fps, while having a connection of 10 Mbps the thing is reduced to 720p and 60 fps. This translates to about 15.75 GB per hour of transmission to 4K, 9GB to 1080p and 4.5GB to 720p. If your Internet rates are limited in your country, keep in mind that 65 hours of game at 4K would exhaust you until the 1TB plans, and this removing any other use we want to give the Internet. By the way, do you already know if your connection is ready for Stadia?
