Time for water-cooling: Google Stadia causes some Chromecast Ultras to overheat

The Chromecast Extremely has lengthy been inclined to over-heating points, even earlier than it grew to become the launch gadget for Google’s online game streaming service. The complaints about toasty Chromecasts have returned, as a few of Stadia’s first gamers are experiencing crashes when taking part in video games from their TV.

The overheating points aren’t common — nobody on the Android Police group has skilled overheating throughout Stadia gameplay — however there are many studies on social media. Because the Chromecast Extremely has no energetic cooling (e.g. a fan), scorching environments can simply have an effect on it.

It is not instantly clear if the Chromecast Extremely is extra liable to overheating throughout Stadia gameplay than common video streaming. Stadia streaming should not be considerably extra taxing on the Extremely’s {hardware} than Netflix or YouTube, until completely different video codecs are getting used. The fixed 60FPS streaming is also an element.

Both approach, I would not be shocked if we begin to see Raspberry Pi-style coolers turn into fashionable amongst Stadia customers. If somebody from Corsair or NZXT is studying this, can we get a water-cooling loop for the Chromecast Extremely?
