The idea behind this is brilliant, especially as a person who has one great pc and another average one. i can finally game at my desk and get into all those rts's i've been missing out on.

Tho the next question is exactly how much resource does it need to constantly encode and stream video? I'm guessing it's a fair bit.

Wouldn't be expecting 60fps.
STALKER was butter smooth on my system running at 2048x1536. I was very surprised.

Still, it was only encoding at 640x480 since I was using the free version. It probably takes significantly more resources to encode at "HD" resolutions.

QFT

it claims it supports massive resolutions. idk how the hell it can do that. maybe you need to be home on a gigabit network.

Isn't that test kind of like checking the quality of a 3d tv with only one eye open?

Not only is encoding at 640x480 slightly more than 10x less screen area, it is also 10x less bandwidth that needs to be used, and 10x less graphics for the ps3 to recomposite. Effectively you have set stalker at 640x480, and at least to me, streaming a game from my pc at that resolution isn't very impressive.

note: My thoughts on the test, do not reflect how the product "may" perform during more robust testing.

Default Re: Stream my Game - Play any PC game on PS3

I am VERY curios to see people's impressions on this when used with the PS3...It would be nice to play on my 42" TV (at 1440x900 though since that is what my monitor supports). This is the main reason I would install Linux on my PS3, so I think I will wait and see how others do with it...Keep it coming guys...
