The Truth About Cloud Gaming - Performance & Input Lag Analysis


Via ... s.1466852/

There's lots of shrieking in the thread, of the sort that goes like "SPOILER: In BEST case scenario you get THREE TIMES more input delay", but after extensive hands-on experience with the Blade Shadow, I can tell you that it's bullshit. Three times a negligible amount... is still negligible lol, and though the lag I am experiencing using Shadow from an officially unsupported location in the middle of the Atlantic is significant—precisely because my location is officially unsupported—the service is STILL very much worthwhile for me and perfectly usable with the vast majority of games and genres, as you can see when you catch me streaming a range of cutting-edge games at max detail on Twitch every week.

Ultimately, seeing is believing here. I didn't believe it either until I tried it because Shadow's deal sounded incredible... but it turned it out to be very much credible, and now I am playing on a GTX 1080 PC for a mere €35 a month and I am in heaven.
