    Is bluetooth going to be viable for gaming?


    I really like the idea of having all my devices connected to a single bluetooth usb adapter, and i also prefer my computer equipment to be wireless. So far though, i haven't found any bluetooth devices suitable for gaming. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

    Depends on what the users definiton of gaming. For casual use? Sure. For" high-end" precision-gaming and e-sports? Nope. Personally I'm using cords on everything.

    I think the USB adaptor would have to be a self powered one in order to get enough to power all the devices.

    Okay, that seems a bit weird. I usually just plug all my devices to the same bluetooth adapter.

    Bluetooth is far too slow.

    Bluetooth 4.0: What is it, and does it matter? - CNET
    BT works at same frequency as WiFi 2.4GHz range so it should in theory be just as fast but more complicated protocols are keeping them down for wider range of uses. It might get faster if like WiFi goes to 5GHz range but I doubt it will happen. Other technologies are coming up like LiFi Li-Fi - Wikipedia

    I get a significant delay with most of the bluetooth gear that i have tested, so yes i agree.

    It seems to be an article about iphones, and how bluetooth affects their batteries?
