Microsoft hides cloud latency with DeLorean Microsoft's research arm claims it may have found a way to solve the barrier preventing mass adoption of cloud gaming: the latency between the server and the client. Microsoft Research's answer? Time travel, via what its creators have dubbed DeLorean. In a white paper published this week, a team lead by Kyungmin Lee has detailed what they are calling a 'speculative execution system' which is capable of hiding up to 250ms of network latency from the user - perfect for high-latency mobile networks. DeLorean works by rendering possible outcomes ahead of time, then displaying only the correct outcome to the user.
