Best Device I've used for LIQUIDSKY


#1

Okay so I've been using Liquid sky on 3 devices

AMD 6350 with integrated graphics water cooled cpu
1tb hard drive

Nothing special , & liquidsky runs great 20mbps internet

Surface pro 3 i5 4300u 1.9ghz Edition 8gb ram also nothing special , this will not run well at all I'm not sure if it's my surface maybe need to re install a fresh version of windows but will not work.

Last but not least the best purchase I made , are you ready for this??

Intel Compute Stick

Quad-Core Intel Atom x5-Z8300 Processor
Windows 10 (32-bit)
Intel HD graphics
2 GB DDR3L 1600 MHz soldered down single-channel memory
Integrated Wireless 802.11ac (Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265)
One USB 3.0 and One USB 2.0
Bluetooth 4.0
32gb onboard storage

This little device works wonders I put it into Performance mode, downloaded only LIQUIDSKY and right clicked ran as administrator & bam!!!

This thing uses 100% CPU but doesn't affect gameplay didn't lad very very very minimal latency only played with it for about 3hrs today (purchased today)

Played Rainbow 6 siege 45-65fps
Overwatch 50-65fps very very good!!!
Insurgency played great!!!

My internet connection download on device was 128down and 56up (have a 1gb connection) on 5ghz wifi connection at that haven't tried my Ethernet adapter yet.

In Conclusion this $126 device worked great for me very good investment! Worth!!

Liquid sky is on the verge of greatness !!

Awesome man !!!
Can you tell me if the Surface pro has 802.11ac wifi? That might be the difference.


#3

The Microsoft website shows , Wireless: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac.


#4

Ok, so sometimes when I'm having a terrible LS experience on one of my devices it's because my wifi is connecting at a low speed like 144mbps. What I do is turn off the devices wifi and wait a few minutes. This usually works and if not I reset my wifi router/modem and that gets me back to normal 802.11ac speeds of 500 to 780mbps. Always check and confirm your connection speed.

Well if you live close to a data center, any low end hardware can run LS and boom you have a great PC.
You could use a simple Intel Atom integrated board (or Celeron) too, they are very cheap. 20$ maybe.


#6

They key is using the 5 ghz sprectum... you need a router and pc that supports these of course... 5 ghz offers less latency and faster speeds at a shorter distance and range from the router then the 2.5 spectrum


#7

That's interesting, I tried another device with the same chip (Z8300) and got pretty bad results.

What local latency are you getting while in-game? (It should say at the top of the window when the client is minimised).


#8

Local & network Latency im getting around 25-40


#9

Thanks, take it you mean in total?


#10

yeah sometimes network is like 15-17 and local 15-20 roughly 25-40 latency im on ultra servers 1080/60


#11

I got similar results from the Windows 10 mini PC but I found it too laggy to play Overwatch.

20ms total is the sweet spot I think – but that's a matter of personal preference. And obviously, this matters less for non-FPS games.


#12

well i had that issue as well on overwatch it was unplayable latency was terrible now i have played at least 10games solid 1080/60 no latency issues , what i did before starting liquidsky try right clicking it & running as administrator that fixed my latency issues idk why but it did and i also shut off all background applications in the settings and worked for me. given i have a 2gb ram as i think urs has 4gb so urs should easily run with no issues. but try those thinsg and see if that helps.


#13

On that stick how did you connect a controller? Was there any lag with a wireless controller since they recommend wired?


#14

it has 2 USB ports i connected a usb hub with 4 extra usb ports and connected a wireless mouse kbd & using a wired controller connected a xbox one wireless bluetooth controller but it didn't work with LiquidSky.


#15

i dont cnow haw start my accent


#16

About the xbox controller from what I understand the bluetoorh and WiFi run through the same chip on that so using the two at the same time can cause sonflicts or slowdown.


#17

I can confirm that even on older devices, LiquidSky works perfect.

Tested on Zotact (mini pc) ID18 with a Intel’s Ivy Bridge Intel Celeron 1037U(dual core, 1.8 GHz) with Intel NM70 chipset
4GB of memory and a Intel HD Graphics (yeah not even a HD 4000 or something!)

Yeah, very old and pretty slow simple pc.
But the GPU shouldn't be that capable of running it.
But it works like a charm! :slight_smile:

Latency and quality is not that different than on my Macbook Pro (2012) on OSX or Bootcamp.
Used everything with wired LAN connections.

I love it! Can't wait until the release in March!
