It wont so stop whining.

Unless you have Google Fiber or some other god-tier internet, you won't be using anywhere near 600 Mbit/s. Most people's internet is only 10 Mbit/s. I know in my area, the fastest I can get is only 50 Mbit/s.

I really wish cable companies didn't have a monopoly in areas on this crap.

please tell me you are not going to complain about a cap of 600 mbits, that would be absolutely ridiculous.


not complaining, jus wanted to know if 75MB per second is fast enough for xbox one graphics improved by cloud server?


That's not how that works. The graphics are calculated on the cloud and transferred to the console. That takes very little bandwidth.

The issue with rendering graphics on the cloud is latency, not bandwidth.

No, not really...

1Mbit = .125Mbyte, so 600Mbit/s = 75Mbyte/s

For once, that isn't happening much.

TC: The bandwidth of the DDR3 in the X1 is 68GB/s (not gigabit). Not even including the ESRAM. It wouldn't make much difference at all.

The Xbox One's 802.11n radio is probably limited to 300 megabits per second, not 600, although I don't think we know for sure. Whichever of those speeds is the theoretical limit, the practical, real-world limit will be a lot less. None of that matters for cloud gaming, since it's not about transferring large amounts of data from the internet to the Xbox One. In it's non-buzzword form, cloud gaming is just about dedicated servers and the ability to push non-time-critical, processor-heavy calculations to the cloud.

Whats the speed rate of blu-rays?

Not that's it's in any way relevant at all, but 1x speed for Blu-ray drives is 36 megabits per second. The BDA decided that this wasn't enough for movies and so any Blu-ray drive intending to play movies has to support at least 1.5x playback (normally they do 2x or more). The max theoretical bitrate of a Blu-ray movie is therefore 54 megabits per second.

My internet is 15Mbps, so I'm at 1.8MBps. Going all digital next gen is gonna suck for a lot of people.
