No one at MS has spoken the truth in a long time.

Yes because it frees up some of the juice needed by the box to render the graphics. Enough to be noticeable? Unlikely. Enough to make games run a bit smoother while less taxing on the box? Probably

Anyone who believe that "the cloud" which is nothing more than servers can cause an improvement in graphics or help in processing has no idea what anything I just said actually means.

Google Fiber isn't fast enough to deliver better graphics over the web.

The only way 'the cloud' can 'improve' graphics is by lightening the load on the system allowing the system itself to enhance the graphics.

But what happens if you are cut of from the cloud? Does your game all of a sudden take a hit? Does it kick you out of the game? What happens?
