In an effort to show the capabilities of cloud gaming, AMD has released a new video that utilizes the technology to play Crysis 3 and Battlefield 4 on Laptops.
In the video CEO of Leap Computing Alex Nataros explains how the technology works and just how beneficial it can be to bring the same experience to gamers everywhere. Both AMD and Leap Computing are currently working together to harness the cloud’s power and this video is a result of that collaboration.
There’s no denying that cloud gaming is in fact the future. Both Microsoft and Sony have their R&D departments working on that with Azure and PlayStation Now. However, cost and reliability is an issue right now.
The performance of Cloud Gaming heavily relies on the locations of servers and the efficiency of your ISP. Except for perhaps the core regions in NA and Europe, it is difficult to ascertain the same level of performance in the rest of the world, perhaps even impossible.
There’s still time left before we see cloud gaming becoming standardized.
