Origin Download speed????? WOW

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
HOW??? I just purchased Titanfall for $33 less than two hours ago from some site my friend told me about and its already downloaded all 49.99GB? I have some of the worst internet at 8mbit burst speed download. My ISP doesn't sell anything even close to this fast.







Edit: hid some of my email details.

It decompresses and installs while it's downloading, so you didn't really download 49.99 GB. The only reason they say "49.99 GB" is, that's how much space is required once it's installed (and damn that's a large installation). It's just like when you download an installer that's noticeably smaller than how much space is required after the program or game is finished installing. When you download a game via Origin, you are also installing it at the same time. So, what you're really looking at is not how big the download is, but how much space is required in the end.

 

I don't know how much you've actually downloaded, but again, it decompresses as it downloads, so yeah.

It's a computer!

I did the same. The actual download is "only" 21 GB. It then decompresses to the 50 or so GB. thumb.gif

It decompresses and installs while it's downloading.

 

Edit: 21 MB in 120 minutes would be 2.98 (almost 2.99) MB per second!

No, he's getting 6+mbits per second. That's 1/8'th as much

If you're refering to the speedtest-results, that's magabit, not megabyte. Speed is usually measured in bit, storagespace in bytes.

Megabits, not Megabytes. So, 0.84 Megabytes per second. "Mb" is always Megabits, and "MB" is always Megabytes.

 

However, that's with that SpeedTest server...

 I'm confused: so far, my experience with Origin is that the game installs while it's downloading so that by the time it's finished downloading, it's fully installed and ready to play.
