Google Stadia is the new streaming gaming platform from Google

Stadia is not a console, it’s streaming access to games from billions of devices

Also...

AMD is powering it apparently so I wonder what the future holds for Navi and whatever else AMD has in store in the gpu space

Good luck against GeForce Now and Shadow.

Specs of each Stadia server below. Vega 56 per node, pretty cool.

Quote:

Custom x86 processor clocked at 2.7GHz w/ AVX2 SIMD and 9.5MB of L2+L3 cache
Custom AMD GPU w/ HBM2 memory, 56 compute units, and 10.7TFLOPs
16GB of RAM (shared between CPU and GPU), up to 484GB/s of bandwidth
SSD cloud storage

The hardware datacenters used for Google Stadia is powered by AMD technology and custom built for this use case. It surpasses the likes of PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X put together with its 10.7 teraflops of computing power, 56 compute units and HBM2 memory. The CPU is a custom x86 processor clocked at 2.7 GHz which also supports hyperthreading and AVX2. Memory totals 16GB, with up to 484 GB/s of transfer speed, and 9.5 MB of L2 + L3 cache.
Something like Vega56? Wonder if it will use a Zen+ or Zen2 design given that it launches this year. I would expect they would just have a server with 4-6 GPUs in it and run a pair of Epyc's for density sake. If this is all one 1 APU for each player that is a whole ton of chassis needed in racks. Google also said developers can choose to use more than 1 GPU as well, so that would kinda point away from being an APU type design.



Also of importance:
Quote:

The games will run on Linux through the Vulkan API and Google already partnered with Unreal and Unity to add support for the Stadia platform to the most popular game development engines.
If it runs linux and support is being added for these various game engines then I wonder if we will see a whole lot more Linux gaming compatibility in the future?

Yet another massive design win for AMD.

Take it up with Paul:


Anyways, get rid of your PCs boys. It's over. :(

I hope google doesn't have high hopes for this because... no one wants it. Reading through comments about this around the internet, seems very few people are even interested in trying it.

Diffident 03-19-2019 02:19 PM

The good thing is, it's built on Linux and they're pushing Vulkan. So hopefully we'll see more Vulkan based games.

epic1337 03-19-2019 02:26 PM

it would be more appropriate for google to upgrade the Pixel series.
i mean, take a hint from nintendo's switch.

I wonder how much it would cost per month for something twice that fast on all counts? And latency can get frustrating enough in boss fights that you are willing to sacrifice quality to lessen it.
