The good people over at Digital Foundry have done a marvelous video detailing the specs of Google’s gaming service – so far. We know these aren’t final Stadia specs, but it should give us an idea of the raw power behind the tech giant’s giant bet on gaming. Here’s a snippet of what’s in store:
- Custom 2.7GHz hyper-threaded x86 CPU with AVX2 SIMD and 9.5MB L2+L3 cache
- Custom AMD GPU with HBM2 memory and 56 compute units, capable of 10.7 teraflops
- 16GB of RAM with up to 484GB/s of performance
- SSD cloud storage
If you want to know more, you can also watch the video from Digital Foundry right here:
There have also been some latency numbers thrown into the mix, for those of you thinking about using the service for competitive gaming. This is how it compares:
- Google Stadia: 166ms
- Google Project Stream: 179ms
- PC @ 30fps: 112ms
- PC @ 60fps: 79ms
- Xbox One X: 145ms
As you can see, considering it’s being done over the cloud, it compares favorably with Microsoft’s top of the line current-gen console. Will you be a day-one user for STADIA? Or will you continue to rely on local hardware?
