    Do we have proof of this, though?
    Is there e.g. any audio ray/path tracing demo for RTX hardware where we can see the compute utilization?
    Honest question, because all I have as comparison is that Steam Audio's use of Radeon Rays (without ray tracing hardware though..) where they only make it available for offline processing.

    still skeptical on lockhart. Sorry guys, just don't see it. Great if it was it's own device doing it's own thing playing games like a PC with that APU is fairly reasonable. It's serving another market.
    But as a console and being held up to XSX, just doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

    I don't know what lockhart is, we don't know if it's still alive, and we don't know what purpose it's serving. I know the first thought is to go straight to console, but it may not. Could very well be the chip that goes into the next hololens, or something of that sort.

    Friend told me there was some French YouTuber who said it was not going to be called 'Series S' and now i just want to get this nonsense out of my brain before the event:

    Anytime you want to play.
    Anywhere you want to play.
    Any way you want to play.

    Xbox Series A

    I hope that means a portable or trans-portable device.

    This proves there's no Lockhart at least not at launch.

    They can just show the Lockhart badge later, when/if they actually show the console. It doesn't prove anything other than Lockhart needs a silhouette that can be turned into a nice badge.

    So you you think they will have a different badge for Lockhart? I don't know if that's a good idea.

    Optimized for series L.

    Most likely they will use the same badge.

    Lockhart's badge will say:
    "Stripped down for Series S"
