The idea of ​​cloud play is not new or new to the gaming world, but this idea turned upside down after the announcement of the new cloud service, " Google Stadia ", to the point that some say that Google Stadia will eliminate the rest of the gaming platforms and it will be the future of the gaming world.

Although there are already cloud-based gaming services, gamers and critics have predicted that Google Stadia will be a revolution in this area, and why not as Google is one of the largest technology companies in the world and has a wide range of tools, both technical and physical, such as giant servers.

But after the release of a bunch of information about the service, there was a state of hesitation and divided opinions about the feasibility of Google Stadia, whether due to the announced prices or the requirements of Internet speed.

So, dear reader, all the information we have so far about the most anticipated service Google Stadia .

How Does Cloud Play Work ?

Google Stadia

Cloud services are based on one idea: to run the games on a server with a very high capacity and then this server broadcasts the image to you on the screen of your device and at the same time your device sends control information to the server.

But this general idea is a branch of another set of ideas, there are some cloud services provide you with a specific device connected to the Internet and this device through which you can install the game you want, the most prominent of these examples "Shadow cloud" service .

Google Stadia

The common type of cloud gameplay is that does not require any installation, but there is a set of games included in the service and all you as a player to pay the monthly subscription in order to enjoy the games set in the service catalog without any need to install games, and the most prominent cloud gaming services now and follow Same way " PlayStation Now ".

Google Stadia

There is also a "GeForce" cloud service that requires you to own the game in your own library on the service and then install it, but this service does not offer a specific device to access it such as Shadow service.

How Google Stadia Works?

Google Stadia will offer you the ability to play on the screen of your phone, tablet, TV or PC, once you access the service.

The service will require a monthly subscription and then you will need to purchase the games you want to play through the service .

However, after you purchase the game on the service, you do not need to perform any installation and download, but it is the service that will broadcast the games to your screen.

Of course, we note in the Google Stadia service duplication of the paid value, where the player pays the monthly subscription value in addition to the value of the game, so there is a discount on games so that the price is equal in the end or convergence with the prices of the rest of the platforms.

Also, the monthly subscription is supposed to be valid for the first year only and then it will become a free service and at this moment the discount on the games will be canceled.

Google Stadia Capabilities..

Google Stadia

As we have all seen in Google Stadia advertising campaigns, this service can stream 4K games at 60 frames per second, but what equipment does the service offer to deliver this quality?

The Equipment Provided by The Player To Each Player is as Follows :

Custom x86 processor clocked at 2.7GHz w / AVX2 SIMD and 9.5MB L2 + L3 cache.

Custom AMD GPU w / HBM2 memory, 56 compute units, 10.7TFLOPs.

16GB Ram, Up to 484 GB / s bandwidth.

SSD Cloud Storage.

Of course the aforementioned gear is enough to run any game at the highest resolution settings 4K display with 60 frames per second, but this is if you play through the device itself, in the case of Google Stadia must be considered to play cloud and Internet intervention in the subject.

So far we have an experiment from "Digital Foundry" to analyze the performance of Google Stadia and see if the service offers a good gaming experience with Latency acceptable or not.

The results were very average as the Latency duration of Google Stadia reached 166ms while the duration on the device with images directly reached only 79ms and at a frame rate of 60 frames per second.

According to this data, the player will need at least an Internet speed of up to 10 MB in order to play the games in the service at a resolution of 720p display and a frame rate of 60 frames per second and stereo sound.

Another point to note is the download capacity used for using the service,
In order to get 65 hours of playtime per month in 4K quality, you will need 1TB of full download capacity, which is equivalent to 15.75 GB in order to get one play time at 4K resolution.
