Gamersyde: Bandwidth testing

Gamersyde: Bandwidth testing

You certainly have noticed that we've been having some rather big bandwidth issues lately, forcing us to deactivate part of our streaming system while looking for a solution. Well, we have part of this solution ready, but now we need you to fine tune it!


It's very easy, all you have to do is try downloading for at least 30 seconds the file from each of these three servers, and then report the speed you got in the news comments. It's *very* important that you do not use a download manager (or that you use only one thread) for this test to be worthwhile!

Server #1
Server #2
Server #3

Thanks for your help!

From USA - New Jersey (Comcast cable)
#1 - started at 130KB/s and slowly went up - rised to 940KB/s near the end of the download
#2 - 1.3MB/s
#3 - 26KB/s (very slow!)

Server #2 was clearly the best in my case.

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The success of the 360 had *a lot* to do with it being the best multiplatform console. There may be a diminishing returns thing there though... we'll see. (12 minutes ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 Scorpio will be nice and all, but if you don't have the software then ultimately nobody will care outside the hardcore who are buying it regardless. (20 minutes ago)

    scoobs0688 Microsoft just needs to develop some new original IP and quit relying on Forza, Halo and Gears to carry them. Those franchises just don't have the pull they once had. (20 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Moonwalker: If the Scorpio gives you the best console versions of multiplatform games and you're already into the XB1, then it's probably not a bad idea. After all, most games are multiplatform. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I absolutely love TES but at the same time I am exited to see a brand new IP from that studio. I'll just expect TES VI on Scorpio and Pro's successors, lol. (2 Hours ago)
