Steam link has been able to do 5.1 for awhile (2016).

skupples I'll stick to my hard wired NVShield.

Valve's option, even when running through a synced laptop w/ modern NV chip still isn't as good as shield. Which is why I ended up with the shield in the first place.

note - all hard wired.

I can think of a handful of games I own that I would be able to play like this. Obviously, I'm not talking about shooters.


You seem to be projecting. You said you knew no one who would be able to or want to use this product, but I, unlike you, know people who would. You know, as a counter to your absolutist position that this product is useless.

Imouto So my testing was quite old and today I tested my Xiaomi Mi A1. I just noticed there's a performance monitor within the Steam Link software under "advanced" options.



Quite sweet and actually responsive over a 5 Ghz WiFi network.

Streaming over 4G didn't work but I blame my ISP. Tomorrow I'll post another screenshot with PC -> Ethernet -> Fiber -> Internet -> Fiber -> 5 Ghz WiFi

funky882 I sideloaded the steam link app on my fire stick for the bedroom tv, and I have to say it’s just not there yet. I have Google Wifi, my system is hardwired, and the fire stick is connected with 5ghz. Testing the connection it indicates it’s perfect with no packet loss or fluctuations in the steam link app. However, the input lag is just far too noticeable to make most games playable. FPS IMO are off the table, just too much of a delay. I tried DMC5 and it was totally doable, but going back to natively playing it was much much better.

Now it’s available to stream over the internet? Super cool, I really love free features, but it just doesn’t seem ready. Your local network really represents a best case scenario for the tech and even then it’s still lacking in a lot of ways. I LOVE the idea of streaming but I’m just not willing to take the degradation in quality.

So input delay should be whatever your network's is.
Yeah, that makes sense. With that in mind, streaming with the Link over the Internet should have a total latency that's virtually equal to the ping you get between locations.
