No. Utomik is not video streaming your games
Playing games on Utomik is incredibly easy and fast. Gone are the long waiting times, installations, updates and patches. Our smart "download while you play" technology stores a small part on your disk, enough to start playing quickly. The rest downloads to your PC while you play. 100% original games, no video streaming.
An example: The game Darksiders is 4 gigabyte in total size. On an average internet connection it will load about 158 mb of data to launch you into the game. While you continue playing, our system will download more bits of data, but never so that it clogs up your bandwidth or hurts your gameplay experience.
What internet speed do I need?
Utomik is designed to work on any internet speed. When starting a game, our prediction technology will quickly benchmark your internet speed to determine how much data is need to start playing your game.
- If your speed is lower, our system downloads more in advance to be "safe"
- If your speed is higher, our system downloads less to start playing
- If your speed changes dramatically, our system might "recalculate" to adapt
So, regardless of your internet speed, Utomik will guarantee a fast startup time for games in almost any case. Rarely will you have to download an entire game.
Large Startup Packages
Some games, by their design, have larger startup packages and take a bit longer to start for the first time. Games like this are marked with an "Hourglass" icon in the client. Once the initial data is downloaded it remains on your disk, so the second time you play you will not have to wait for it again.
