Thats just false. It’s a console that targets a lower resolution, which requires much less power. 1440p still looks nice, and it makes sense for the average console gamer.

So your saying if a game has dynamic frame rate enabled and if I get 80 on the X version I would also get 80 on the S version if both were 1080P....

Less power with a different resolution target, so same performance, settings (minus resolution) and gameplay. Don’t forget that you said it will likely need to be replaced before end of gen, that’s the false part.

I don’t even understand what you are saying... just stop. There isn’t going to be 1080p games on the series x.

It runs at a lower resolution because it has slower hardware. That is factually correct. Have you tried playing end of generation games on the first run of a console generation? They run pretty poorly, and this is a step down from first run.

That’s why they have basically the same everything, just cut back gpu power and bandwidth with a much lower resolution target. Look at some pc gpu reviews to see what the difference in power for 1440p vs 2160p is. The 2160p console is obviously better, it’s also $200 more. I think it’s a fantastic move by Microsoft, millions are willing to watch cam movies on a kodi box... I’m sure they are fine dropping to 1440p instead of 2160p.

But in addition to the CPU difference, you're looking at:

I don’t think you get the jump from 1440p to 2160p is huge. Go look at some pc gpu reviews. Don’t get caught up on TFLOPs either, they don’t tell you what gaming performance will be. 4K is over 8 million pixels, 1440p is 3.6 million.Thello wrote: ↑ But in addition to the CPU difference, you're looking at:
12 TFLOPS of graphics processing vs 4 TFLOPS - 66% less
16GB of RAM vs 10GB - ~37% less
That's not a small margin. Certainly not "basically the same everything." Eventually, this is going to be a hamstring, especially when the inevitable next step upgrade comes around.
It's also worth noting, based on the Canadian dollar, we're getting a roughly $70 discount on the Series X ($499 USD vs $599 CAD), while also ensuring you're not stuck in a digital only ecosystem without the ability to purchase deep discounted physical games.
