    In console terms, it definitely would.

    About time the base line of ~1,3TFLOPs gets a proper upgrade. Not that I think this will translate into better games tho...

    So they'll be catching up to ~2012? Good stuff.

    Doesn't matter how horrible the console hardware is, they'll increase the specs regardless of any actual graphical improvements like they've been doing since the 3shitty generation. Gotta keep people buying new hardware.

    There was 4K at 60fps in 2012? Show me that alternative universe where that happened with reasonable priced hardware. Even today you need top PCs to pull that off.

    Ye but if they "improve" it by 10%, then I'll be happy.

    get back to me when you test each game in the console library to make sure it never dips below 60fps. this was my original position, remember? I said you can't game at 4k60fps on console, you said you could, and I said not without frame-rate dips and/or not on true 4k. My statement is still true. You can't game at true 4k with no frame-rate dips on console.

    When we bother to include the "amateur" consoles then it becomes even less possible to play 4k60fps (if not outright impossible). Maybe, maybe the next generation will be enough to play this-generation games at 4k60 and next-generation games at 4k30.

    nothing personnel kid.

    The demands on the CPU for 2022 PC gamign will be immense.

    Console games historically use every sliver of power available and they deliver 30 FPS with frame drops mostly.

    For 4K 2022 gaming gamers are going to need a full investment, the smart money will be saving their dollarydoos for a full PC rebuild in 2021, since the console developers will use every scrap of the 8 physical Ryzen cores then release poorly made ports

    What are the odds the GPU is based on Polaris because AMD can't get it's shit together at all though omegalul

    Variable rate shading can fix framedrops but it's an image space method, therefore not much better than dynamic resolution. The real deal is per object variable rate shading that works alongside LOD transitions. Nowadays the player moving faster than a pre-defined threshold usually breaks LOD, an exception is doom reboot,as it has no LOD.

    Meanwhile, most games still run decently on a Core 2 Duo.

    Only thing I'm excited about in upcoming hardware is better anti-aliasing techniques.

    If PSX games will be remastered into 4k on the fly by AI upscalers, it will be amazing.

    Now that the current generation hit it out of the park with 968p/25FPS, games are going to run at 8K/144FPS on the PS5!

    How depressing to know that the PS4 generation has ended with so few impressive titles to its name. Nowhere near comparable to the PS1, 2 or 3 era.

    Dev kits are always supplied with twice as much RAM than the consumer SKUs. CPU sounds quite realistic, GPU not so much. But we'll see.

    But they won't let you access it, just like with the PS4's PS2 emulator.
