Google has revealed that its Stadia streaming service recommends a 25 megabits per second internet connection to provide 1080p, 60 frames per second gameplay.The requirements for the service are detailed in an interview from Kotaku.
“To get 1080p, 60 frames per second, required approximately 25 megabits per second,” Harrison said of the tests they conducted last October. “In fact, we use less than that, but that’s where we put our recommended limit at” says Google Stadia boss Phil Harrison.
“When we launch, we will be able to get to 4K but only raise that bandwidth to about 30 megabits per second.” He did not clarify if 4K resolution will still run at 60 frames per second with that 30mbs connection speed.
Harrison also revealed that Stadia is able to dynamically adjust its output based on your bandwidth, so those with weaker connections will be provided with a lower resolution. This will certainly make the system more accessible, but is the cost of quality worth it ? Thoughts ?
