    The other one is burdened by games needing to run on Lockhart. :runaway: I really hope Microsoft bury this policy (not the machine, just the policy).

    Don't mock me. Go visit the Hallmark website and get me a "commiserations on not getting your dream hardware in a console even though it was a bloody brilliant idea and the rest of the world is too dumb to know it," card. And flowers.

    Yea I agree, only 10.3 is best case scenario for PS5, with already confirmation from Cerny that it will drop (but nothing substantial - ie. people won't notice, but it looks nice on spec sheet). 12TF is also not what XSX runs at, its 12.15TF I think all the time.

    Yeah, and hopefully they'll still allow those unvalidated titles to run with boost on, just like on PS4 pro.

    The additional 3.5GB designated as standard ram for the Xbox can be filled up pretty quickly with things that don't need the full bandwidth though. At least that's what MS engineers claimed.

    They have no solution yet for HRTF selection. Awkward.

    They did put fake people shadows in front of Cerny to simulate an audience. He was over their heads. ;)

    Other than the selection from five he spoke about?

    If it basically ran with boost mode all the time there would not be a boost mode.

    What a dissapointment. 36 CUs, 256 bits bandwidth, shitty RT...yes ssd is double than XSX, and what is the difference between waiting for 8 seconds or 4?. And what is worst that variable clock is a last time fudge to not look even worse than XSX. They went cheap and it shows.
    Worse GPU, worse CPU, worse bandwidth and a SSD faster not even reaching 1 Tflop. The 3d audio thing is funny, they already advising if you have a different HTRF you will see no difference.

    If it was Kojima standing there, I would scrutinize the footage, zoom on those cardboard audience...

    Which has not been shown to even exist as a console.

    There isn't any argument made here IMO, because you are basically describing any system requiring cooling...

    Any cooling system degrades, even PC builds if they never get cleaned. Ultimately. the amount of heat to dissipate is directly proportional to power consumption. So as long as the boost is budgeted by power consumption — which it should be, given that the details sound no different from cutting-edge AMD APU power management (minus device chassis thermal caps) — there is still a fixed ceiling to plan cooling capacity against.

    Those same games also need to run on PC's though. PC's that are less powerful than what we expect Lockhart to be.

    When the camera zoomed back I kept looking at the silhouettes of the 'people'. I thought I going mad but they sure as hell looked like cutouts. :lol2:

    A lot of..."interesting" decisions made for this console. Their custom SSD hardware seems very cool but only 825GB? Also the storage expansion doesn't seem very straightforward (basically he said wait to hear from us on recommend drives).

    Still confused about the overall chip? It's basically power-throttled or something?

    Also 3D audio seems very experimental...

    From what I understand, its like current PC cpu and gpu where they will basically will almost aways boost themselves up, almost never limits their peak at the stock clock.
