I recently installed a new card in my old pc (Nvidia 710GT) and I have problems while playing Stadia at 720p resolution or 1080p on Chromium (hw acceleration on).

I have no problems at all streaming a 1080p 60 fps video from youtube, the hw acceleration is working.

Btw, when I play to Stadia, I can start the game normally but, after 20 second or more, the gpu goes crazy and I have a lot of stuttering going on the screen before it goes back to notmal. That is unplayable most of the time.

I am using h264 codec with stadia+ extension.. I am using nvidia 440 proprietary driver on kubuntu 19.10. I tried Nouveau driver.. Nvidia 435.. Right now I can play only with hw acceleration off because of this issue with the gpu.

I haven't this problem while playing other games.

since your videocard is fairly old you have no vp9 hardware decoding, and you must use h264 decoding. older videocards often struggle with decoding this. Youtube 1080p60 is a much lower bitrate than stadia because stadia is trying to be indistinguishable from gaming on a game pc

  • Upgrading the graphics card would make a big difference in performance. – karel Apr 10 at 13:56
  • I think that's a problem with this configuration. My old radeon, struggled with 1080p.. Btw this time I have decent fps (when it decides to work for 20 seconds and be stable). It looks like more like a glitch. My cpu is at nearly 40% and gpu between 40-60%. I have this issue also with 720p! While using stadia without hw acceleration playing just with my core2duo at 720p goes smooth with the cpu at 70-90%. It is obviously unplayable without hw acceleration at 1080p just with my dual core.. But 720p glitched with hw acceleration? That sounds like something else. – Francesco Corrado Apr 10 at 14:13
