Id’s New “Orion” Offers Faster Streaming To Mobile Devices. Much Faster.

Id Software announced what they describe as a breakthrough in streaming games to mobile devices. There was a lot of technobabble, but what it seems to come down to is that Orion is built into the game engine – apparently it’s a simple to use SDK. Supposedly, Orion will allow games to stream 20% faster per frame, using 40% less bandwidth. Because of this, Id claims, you can easily stream on the highest graphic settings available, and streaming with this method saves money on both the player’s side, and the publisher’s.

To prove their point, they streamed Doom onstage in 60 fps on a mobile phone.

Registration for the beta of Orion (Or maybe just streaming Doom with Orion?) is available at Slayersclub.com, though the site went down basically immediately after their announcement , so good luck.
