I was just trying the ultra mode to see the difference between normal and the higher powered machines. Anyway I loaded up GTA5 and it looked ok but wasnt amazing so I started tweaking some of the settings (i.e turning on MSAA and some other lighting changes) and it was performing worse than my normal laptop (which is a geforce 860GTX), it also said that I had about 2gb video memory which I was expecting it to be far more on an ultra box, so I was assuming ultra boxes could run almost all modern games at almost full settings in 1080p so are my expectations wrong here?
As all the information implies that normal systems should run recent games at 1080p with high settings and the ultra should run the most modern games at full settings without problems.
I have just tried the resident evil 7 demo too with almost highest settings on ultra and it is about 10-20fps, so would love to find out some more on this, as i was hoping to use this for high end games and run not so graphically intensive ones locally.
I would expect the game rendering speed should always be around 60fps even if there were network or decoding problems, it said the decoder was CUDA not sure if I should be using the Nvidia one or changing anything else, but I would love to get the most out of this service, and I have 3 friends who are interested but until I have my results to show them they are a bit hesitant to try it themselves.
