Abstract: With the emergence of cloud computing, diverse types of Information Technology services are increasingly provisioned through large data centers via the Internet. A relatively novel service category is cloud gaming, where video games are executed in the cloud and delivered to a client as audio/video stream. While cloud gaming substantially reduces the demand of computational power on the client side, thus enabling the use of thin clients, it may also affect the Quality of Service through the introduction of network latencies. In this work, we quantitatively examine this effect, using a self-developed measurement tool and a set of actual cloud gaming providers. For the two providers and three games in our experiment, we find absolute increases in latency between approximately 40 ms and 150 ms, or between 85% and 800% in relative terms.
