Google Stadia

A report from PC Gamer hints at the chance that playing Google Stadia on a data connection could actually require billions of dollars. To sum it up, 4K gaming would require up to 15.75GB per hour, 1080p streaming would take 9GB, while 4.5GB would be demanded for the 720p resolution.

“That’s about what we expected, though as with all streaming services, if you plan to use it a lot and don’t have an unlimited data plan, you’ll want to exercise caution,” savvy guys at PC Gamer report, and honestly we were not planning on playing without a flat connection, neither.

“Even with a 1 TB data plan… from Comcast… that’s 65 hours of streaming per month at 4K. And that’s assuming I don’t do anything else on the internet. At 1080p 60 FPS, it comes to 113 hours of streaming per month, assuming no other data usage.”

We’ll list this in the realm of curiosities about Google Stadia, while the most important pieces of information are all ready for you to enjoy on Gamepur, such as the connection requirements you’ll need to respect to play on the upcoming platform.

The Pro subscription, which costs $9.99 a month, will allow streaming at up to 4K resolution, and 60 FPS. You will also need to have at least a 35mbps line to stream at maximum settings. The minimal requirement to use the service is 10bmps down, with 1mpbps up, which will get you 720p resolution.
