I have cox gigablast. I hit at least 350MBps on WiFi and I hit around 600+ on eathernet. Running on an HP Envy with windows 10.
I have no issues playing games like cyberpunk 2077 through steam, but I have issues with other platforms.
I recently got ubisoft+ and when trying games like watchdogs legion or farcry 5 I have video stutter. It makes it unplayable. I've dropped my bandwidth allocation to 15-20MBps through shadow and that helps some what. Though that makes my experience terrible with a blury image.
I've tried any settings I could find, including dropping the graphic quality in these games and it doesn't seem to help. I feel running CP2077 on med-high graphics and it working should show it could handle FarCry 5 no problem on low settings.
If any one has any idea what I'm doing wrong it would be greatly appreciated.

Please note that Internet bandwidth is not the sole factor in determining stream quality. It’s also recommended to use Ethernet for consistent quality - WiFi will provide an inconsistent experience, no matter how “good” you think it is.
Can you provide a screenshot of your Quick Menu (WIN+ALT+O) during the problematic gameplay? It will look like this:
Let me reiterate I only have this issue with games that aren't from steam. Ubisoft connect I always have issues with stutter.
Can you provide the same screenshot(s) when running a Steam game that works well for you? Whether a game is from Steam or another store, shouldn’t matter for the streaming performance...hard to say what’s going on there. It’s why I like to use the https://www.testufo.com/ (selecting the “Compare Frame Rates: Video Game Motion”) site for assessing stream performance.
In your settings under Streaming, is the preference set to “Prefer speed (UDP)” or “Prefer reliability (TCP)” ?
Also, are you testing with Ethernet? As those latency spikes are the types of things that will happen with WiFi.
