    If you are benchmarking how long it takes a brophen to install an app I think we are at 1.3 seconds

      Good timing. I applied the Steam update last night at home and updated the firmware of my steam controller as a preparatory step.

      I think I have some experimenting to do tonight involving a 10.5" tablet, my couch, some headphones, GRID Autosport, and a now-bluetooth-enabled steam controller.

      The 5Ghz requirement might push me to finish configuring the dual-band AC router I acquired recently as well (to replace a ~7 year old dual-band N router). The new one has external antennas and hopefully enough 5Ghz range to hit the whole house.

        I think it's not an requirement but a recommendation for optimal performance. It could be a requirement in practice, though.

              Working ok, at least on 5Ghz, they actually stream your whole desktop, switch virtual desktop and you're in your browser.

              Yes a controller is a must though.
