Reddit reports that the Chromecast Ultra, which is needed for Google's cloud gaming service Stadia, is overheating. It should even come to shutdowns of the device.
Google's cloud gaming service Stadia started a few days ago. As tests show, the system can not quite convince, but shows where the future of cloud gaming could go. Now, however, reports of technical problems emerged.
Stadia with overheating problem?
The launch of Google Stadia did not go too well. Some pre-orderers are still waiting to play at last. And now there are reports that the included Chromecast Ultra is overheating. The device should be really hot while playing. This may even cause the device to shut down, according to Reddit users. That the Chromecast Ultra can be quite warm, is known. The fact that he gets so hot when playing with Stadia that he switches off is more than annoying.
Google commented on these reports, explaining that Stadia's tests did not trigger Chromecast shutdowns. You can not confirm any technical problems. The device should be warm in normal operation, but not overheat so much that it shuts off. On Reddit, the discussion is currently continuing.
