One of Google Stadia big promises is that Stadia Pro will carry games with HDR colors in up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second, but unfortunately not every game can check all of those boxes.
As of today, Google is not going to tell you the resolution or frame rate that Stadia is running each game at, but luckily a Stadia fan site has taken up the task.
Soon after Google Stadia was released many found that not every game could run at a full 4K resolution, with some games making up the difference with upscaling techniques. Some games meanwhile are more than capable of running at 4K but do so at frame rate sacrifice For example when in 4K, the Borderlands 3 runs at 30 frames per second (FPS) on Google Stadia.
Unfortunately, the Google Stadia store does not currently provide instructions as to what resolution or frame rate each game is capable of before or after purchase. However, with the use of upscaling, calculating the original resolution every game runs at can sometimes be difficult. This, of course, hasn’t stopped people like Digital Foundry and others from doing so, but that means that the information is spread over the internet, rather than in one place
Join Stadia Game DB, a fan site for the Stadia community, run by the Nilicule editor. Stadia Game DB has gathered all the online information about each game, and what resolution and frame rate it actually uses under the hood.
Stadia Game DB makes it easy to browse, sort, and filter any Stadia game based on its resolution and frame rate, genre, name, release date, and multiplayer capabilities, given its admittedly primitive UI. Searching for “4k60” for example shows the eight games that members of Stadia Pro will run at maximum 4K, 60 FPS quality.
