Windows 10 all Updates, no additional Software installed
APU A8 7600 kaveri 3.1 - 3.7 Ghz Quad Radeon s7
Ram: Ripjaws 8GB ddr3 2133mhz
Ethernet: 100 mb down, 40 mb up Fiber cabled
Speedtest google stadia result: 94 mb down you should have "great" experience.
Browser: Chrome, Canary
Did everything to improve it. Hardware accelaration off (huge Input lag Spikes, barely playable, no difference) I even reiinstalled Windows 10 entirely to make sure no program or driver is interrupting somehow.
Reset flags. Use canary browser, use inkognito window. But nothing works for me. ROTTR almost starts with 720p on the balanced settings, destiny drops after a few secs. Than it rises, drops, vice versa.during gameplay. Pixelation while moving sometimes, or in Action scenes. Connection stays on OK and sometimes drops to bad for a short period. Looks really not good even worse then on my xbox one S. I hope it isn't the CPU bottlenecking here but if that would be the case then why does services like Shadow and Geforce now delivering almost crystal clear FHD streams to my machine? I don't wanna bash stadia somehow, as it is in a early state right now, but i can't see myself using it with just 720p in the future when any other service gives me better results. Maybe anyone has a magic trick to help folks like me? Or maybe some sort of explanation what causes this.
Thank you all. (:
Pick a 1080p60 video from YouTube - can you watch these in fullscreen without problems? rightclick > stats for nerds, make sure it's really 1080p60 and using VP9
Thank you for repleying. Yes i can watch those videos super smooth. Anyway i tried something else, i forced stadia via console to run in VP9 codec mode only. Image looks definetly better and stays in 1080p, running also smoothly without those nasty resolution drops but unfortunatly the Input lag is killing the experience making it also unplayable. Ive no problem in some quality loses by using lower codecs but it just has to stay in 1080p based upon connection speeds. this is what was promised before. I could prop use the CCU and have zero problems but i mainly bought stadia for my pc, coz i life in a drawn together house and the TV is used a lot by my neighbors, but i will try that out 2 asap. More suggestions? Would be cool. (:
I just Setup my CCU on my monitor and it works flawlessly. No Connection loss/drop nothing! So ist safe to say that these drops in resolution and connection are coming from my Hardware not been able to decode VP9 fast enough in google Chrome. Well, its a little bummer. Since it is not a real Problem to play like this now, but i would like to see maybe Google would add an more common codec in the future for stadia and let ppl switch between those two codecs, so that even older Hardware can decode the stream in high Quality without having that much pain to go through. Requiring new Hardware or at least current isn't really going hand in hand with the purpose of even using Cloud Services and not just simply buying a new pc/Laptop. But anyway, thread can be closed and stadia is still young, Maybe we see those improvements in the future.
