Idea for Linus video

Go to solution Solved by Yogurtsapian,

The latency is one of the big things that separates 5g from 4g. Gigabit speeds is a nice perk.

With 5g just around the corner. I'm curious what the state of cloud gaming is in the best possible conditions. Ie ultra low latency high bandwith connection. Soon alot of people will have access to pretty much the best possible internet. Will cloud gaming become mainstream with 5g?

Hah! Don't believe everything telcos try to tell you! First of all, high bandwidth doesn't equate low latency. Secondly, 4G LTE already has more than enough bandwidth for streaming back and forth and it's already deployed in a lot of areas, and yet you don't see cloud-gaming being mainstream. 5G won't magically change that.

Right.

 

Wireless does not have smaller latency than wired connection and won't be the case with 5G either. Wireless is also prone to many kinds of interference.

Secondly, 5G is still years away from becoming mainstream.

 

4G is pretty fast and already plenty for streaming. 5G is more targeted for connecting all the IoT devices. Real-life speeds are still going to be whole different story than the marketing says.
