The new era of cloud gaming by Chromebook
In November 2019, Google launched Stadia, a cloud gaming service. After being life for 3 years, Google announced on a BlogSpot about shutting down the stadia services in January 2023.
Now Google has come up with another platform for cloud gaming in the form of Chromebook. For the manufacturing of Chromebooks, Google has collaborated with various manufacturers like Lenovo, Asus, and Acer.
Google has also contacted Corsair, HyperX, and SteelSeries to make “Works with Chromebook” certified fringe for these devices. Google has also partnered with cloud gaming services like Nvidia GeForce Now, Microsoft Xbox Cloud Gaming, and Amazon Luna to bring some amazing blockbusters games to the market.
Acer, Asus, and Lenovo are the manufacturers of the first set of Chromebooks. This set contains gaming features like a high-resolution display and refresh rate of at least 120 Hz, Wi-Fi 6 or 6E compatibility.
For a better gaming experience, these Chromebooks have high-quality audio and RGB keyboards that support anti-ghosting.
Anti-Ghosting is a feature that helps the laptop in registering all the keys accurately even when multiple keys are pressed together at the same time.
To avoid failure like Stadia, Google has decided to price these Chromebook laptops in a range of $399 and $799.
According to the price range, these laptops will have intel core i3 – intel core i7 processors.
Here are some key features of the first set of Chromebooks.
