    Yeah, maybe MS needed to harp on the 120fps too because they may have a VR system down the line?

    I got my 65" TCL when I got my XB1X mainly for HDR(I even sacrificed size 55" instead of 65"). I wasn't even thinking of frame-rate. Not even sure I could have gotten a 120Hz HDR10/Dolby Vision TV at my price point back then. The only way I get another TV is if one of mine dies. Better not happen within 2 years.

    Hopefully, they don't cap framerate to refresh rate so I can test whether I can tell the difference.

    I mean, if someone hadn’t thought about it before, my 120-to-60 fps super motion blur idea would have been revolutionary, so I’m putting this down as a huge win for me and my brain.

    Changing the world, one already-patented idea at a time.

    I know this exact feeling. I want to upgrade this round but it feels too soon to replace my "virtually new" 1070 (that I also got when it launched).

    Lol the 1070 is kinda ancient compared to say a 3070 or 3080. You could always opt to wait for a 4080 though :p

    Always wait until you get a 100%+ upgrade

    Someone being on a 2080 going to a 3080 will get close to that in raw rasterization then. In ray tracing 200% or so. This early. I don't think that ever happened before going from one arch to another. Maybe the 90's?
    Him going from a 1070 to a 3070 or 3080 will be a rather huge leap. Aside from ray tracing and pure rasterization performance, he will net some nice DLSS uplift with the tensor hardware and a large amount of other features like RTX IO.

    Yeah 1070 to 3070 is comfortably over 100% before accounting for the RTX and DX12U features.

    In the past though I've tended to wait for a bigger jump. The timing of the new console launch precludes waiting this time though.

    The only thing I'm waiting on are big Navi performance numbers and news of a 3070 Ti.

    maximum Crysis! Some kind of new Crysis but not. I didnt' expect a big difference, but it's obvious the GPU is not the issue.

    What about a maximum framerate? -for CPUs-

    As of currently I am waiting for what AMD has to offer GPU wise so 1440p 165fps on ALL games -or those unlike Ashes of Singularity- and I wonder if a maximum framerate article comparing CPUs could be interesting, 'cos most people has a framerate target and depending at which framerate you want to run those games, the CPU isn't a burden -I mean, at 60fps most 4 cores CPUs could do fine, 8 cores CPUs at 120, etc etc-

    Hate quoting myself, but this post has not aged well.

    PS5 with more than double the power, more storage, much more RAM,all for 399? Now that is a Hell of a Deal, and I'm sorry to say that XSS has now been officially downgraded from Hell of a Deal to Limbo of a Deal.

    Get it? Limbo? No? Never mind me, please proceed with your day.

    If you can find one :). Lol. I mean it seems like a unicorn price. It’s there to get people excited to get one, but I think most people are grabbing the disc version

    if a Xbox has a chance to be a total success, it is the Series S. It's what a console should be. Instead of the power race -which is always a lost one-, this competes for efficiency and being console-ish.

    SSAA for ogXbox and 360 Enchanted titles:

    Similar boost operation (as unpatched games running on Scorpio):

    Select XO titles enchanted to double framerate:
    Well damn.

    This gives me hope that more games will see framerate doubling for everyone with next-gen consoles (PS5 and Xbox Series).

    1080p / 120fps or 1440p / 60fps for 299, plus GamePass for $ 10 a month with 250 games is clearly the DEAL for casual gamers.

    Storage doesn’t matter because Xbox SS games take up less space.
