    YES! Please let this utterly idiotic concept stay dead this time.

    Those aren't interactive. No need for a good upstream connection and they can be buffered for more than a fraction of a second. Game streaming is far more demanding, like everything else to do with gaming.

    Did anyone trust google not to do this? When I first heard about Stadia I just thought what's the point? Google will drop it in a few years - like almost every other one of their products

    Good for you.

    HDMI 2.1 is pretty much a won't fix at this point. https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/amd/-/issues/1417 . It works wonders on Windows so I'm back to gaming on it.

    Exactly, only a real twit would believe that they "own" a game from the Steam DRM platform. I would go so far to say it is an unspecified time limited rental more than "permanent" though.

    However, for the Stadia, I feel I should get a "refund" for having to put up with all the wonkers online telling everyone me how the service will be around forever and that we just have slow internet, we're paranoid, blah, blah, verbal diarrhea, etc.

    Just a big ol' fat waste of everyones time. But, its probably Unity3D next to go and then some years later probably Steam. Exciting!

    If you have a Mac just use USB-C connector on M28U it will charge it as well. (Assuming that you have relatively decent MacBook). It is display port over USB-C so win win.

    This is a typical symptom of an ISP connection with bufferbloat which can grind things to a halt. It can be mostly addressed by SQM. Give Waveform's bufferbloat test a run.‚Äč
