    Ummm why did i find this video on corn hub and it said your channel name and it was a verified account…



  2. Carlozzz on June 22, 2021 at 8:01 pm

    I’m pretty sure the xbox will be able to run most new releases at 4k 60fps considering it’s supposedly as strong as a 2080 and the fact that consoles get heavy optimization compared to a pc but once the new gen consoles start becoming old Id definitely rather play at 1080p 60 rather than 4k 30 because I never notice any aliasing while playing games on my xbox one on native 1080p



  3. Nubless on June 22, 2021 at 8:02 pm

    Question: if the Xbox series x supports 120fps would you need a 120hz monitor?



  4. versia on June 22, 2021 at 8:02 pm

    sony has 8k on their ps5 box already and if the series x is more powerful and they say xbox series x will possibley have 8k support this just means sony is lying straight to your face



  5. Stanch btw on June 22, 2021 at 8:03 pm

    Can you get 1080p with 120fps?



  6. Logan on June 22, 2021 at 8:03 pm

    I feel like while the jump in processing power is signifigant. Its already been states that A.C. Valhalla will be "at least 30fps". It seems to me ray tracing at 4k will be a no go unless you want 30fps. And that a few years down the road when games get more graphic and more demanding we will see more games locked to 30fps.
    I dont see it competing with PC as far as framerates. And im unsure if I can use gpu scaling to get 1440p at 60fps on my display that does not have a scaler that supports that resolution on my tv. So im cautiously optimistic. But more cautious than optimistic.



  7. ZAYAN ALRASHDR on June 22, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    If xbox series x capable of 8k, 120 fps
    Then I spouses it can run easily on 4k,120
    And here you know someone just bullshiting you
    Xbox as always will blame the developer wen the developer don’t know WTF they are talking about
    The amazing thing about xbox is it run windows 10 core
    So basically that mean if the device is really capable the developer won’t having any problems targeting the max fps device capable of
    But that is not gonna happen
    And the fact that xbox one does not support full 4k isn’t comforting me
    This how Microsoft work lieing and misleading customers
    And the console don’t even got games(halo Only? )



  8. جوري العسل on June 22, 2021 at 8:07 pm

    Dirt 5
    4k 120 fps 😊



  9. American Bad Boy on June 22, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    So sad that people acually believe that they would be able to play at 8k with 120+ fps. It sickens me.



  10. SDXJ on June 22, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    I’m new to this stuff. Does anyone know if we will be able to play 120hz on games such as Modern Warfare or other fast paced games? I have a 144hz monitor but feel like I’m not using it to it’s full potential with the Xbox One X. Hopefully the Xbox series X can fulfill this potential



  11. SLIDE - N - SCOPE 2.0 on June 22, 2021 at 8:13 pm

    Why no display port



  12. Rame FC on June 22, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    Will Xbox series x be able to uncap frames at 1080p



  13. Loki Caeser on June 22, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    1080p 240 hz



  14. thisprofileisntrealthough on June 22, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    short answer is they are lying. which im pretty tired of tech companies blatantly lying about their products, like receivers and their power output. just tell us the damn truth guys, you really want to be google?



  15. Ranflas on June 22, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    Yikes my rtx 2070 super overclocked has trouble handling 100+ FPS on max settings on some games



  16. xReckEMs on June 22, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    So no point buying a 8K tv just stay with 4k for now?



  17. Mr Voltage YT on June 22, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    I don’t know why they didn’t cap it to 144fps



  18. AsianAssassin 50 on June 22, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    9 confirmed 4k 120 games



  19. KenSo Fuego on June 22, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    Thats bullshit marketing, pc.is way ahead of xbox consoles.



  20. RahzzY-Be on June 22, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    I only got 4K and 60hz



  21. Fang Her on June 22, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    4k 120 fps? wtf does the xbox x has? 2x 2080 ti or something? lmao!



  22. Kienan4321 on June 22, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    I’m playing on 1080p because I don’t have 4K but If I want to play red dead 2 on series X would there be any point in buying the Series x version if that gets a port? Or am I better off playing on the Xbox one version with back compat?



  23. Skkidz on June 22, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    They didn’t lie it 1080p 120. 1440p 90. 4K60 and 8KUpscaling. Nobody said anything about 4K 120



  24. ARX Infinite on June 22, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Well I guess the console can support that now 100%



  25. WannaCry _ on June 22, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    I don’t think for 500 euros you can play 120fps at 4k



  26. D Stig on June 22, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    4k@120 on console b4 pc? Am I hearing this right?



  27. Blue Mungo on June 22, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    Save you 11 minutes:

    Ans: Yes



  28. Anthony Carter on June 22, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    Why I don’t think you can believe the hype from Xbox:

    Playstation 5 has a modified Navi 10 with the GPU having 36 CU’s which is consistent with the AMD RX 5700 card. This console is predicted to be around $500 price point. The RX 5700 retails around $350 and since they have been very aggressive in pricing to compete with NVidia, I can’t believe Sony is getting the card hugely cheaper, and I cant see AMD taking a loss on Sony’s behest, I would say at best they are purchasing at around $200 per unit. Sony has already stated that building this console is costing them around $450 and since the GPU in a high end Desktop accounts for about 50% of the cost, this is a pretty consistent…So I doubt an Xbox that has a AMD card with 48 CUs, which I feel is a modified version of the yet to be released NAVI 20 series, coming out at same price point. Another fact is, currently AMD doesn’t even have a card that out performs the RTX 2070S let alone the RTX 2080S in benchmark tests, so how Xbox has got the "Nvidia Killer" (which I am still waiting for BTW) in which is effectively going to be at a low end PC price point , I don’t know. Purchasing power or not, it is a tall order. With all of this set aside, you also need a motherboard, CPU and RAM that will also match the performance of the graphics card, and the costs start piling up. Bottle necking as experienced on the PS3 envisioned?

    Currently AMD has 2 Cards in the Top 15 most powerful Graphics cards, and both of those are at the tail end, and none of them faster than the RTX 2070S or upwards.. My feeling is that the Xbox specs quoted are for a higher end Xbox Series X or a future upgrade…a pro version so to speak, which will be closer to $800 than $500. I feel the initial Xbox that is released will be closer in spec to the Playstation 5 to compete at that price range.

    In addition to this, AMD RX 5700 XT cards have issues maintaining the performance over long periods of play and experience over heating. Since neither the Xbox nor the Playstation has liquid cooling, the GPU is going to be mounted in a small unit, pumping out all sorts of heat, one can only feel they have had to dial back the performance to keep it functioning. So I also feel that a lot of the performance is theoretical rather than actual. I have a Nvidia RTX 2080S, with Liquid cooling in a casing that is probably 3 time the size of the Xbox casing…it generates so much heat it warms up my whole room, the AMD cards run about 15% hotter. Cooling issues?

    Though I am a PC gamer, I have no issues with the console market, I have been a fan of consoles going back to the 80’s, starting with the Atari. There is room for all, I have a PC because I use it differently to a console, but also able to play games when I want, it suits my purpose. But I do feel there is always hype surrounding the next generation of consoles that simply generates a lot of crazy numbers and headliners. It is all smoke and mirrors. 8k @120 Fps?….maybe with some ultra low settings that looks awful it could, even the mighty RTX 2080 Ti, with all its bell and whistles barely gets over 60 fps on Ultra Settings at 4K. The problem is, they already have said the last generation of consoles have achieved 4k, so the lie gets bigger and more convoluted.



  29. Knedlo SVK on June 22, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    Xbox is not lying.. I playing War Thunder on 8k on 60Fps



  30. ZAYAN ALRASHDR on June 22, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    If xbox series x capable of 8k, 120 fps

  31. Roy Hoy! on June 22, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    PS5 & XSX should play games at 1080p 90-120fps normally.



  32. RubiiX on June 22, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    End of the day, if a 600 dollar machine could run 4k 120fps with high settings then the high end PC market would die.

    You have to be ignorant as fuck to believe a 600 dollar machine is going to outdo one that costs double, maybe even triple that cost.

    My PC can’t do 120fpd at 4k atm and I have a 2080 super. I am also not limited by thermal or power limits because of the huge ass case with huge ass cooler for my gpu and 1000W PSU.

    So i can actually achieve my hardwares full capabilities. Xbox Series X just won’t be able to hit its max numbers. No console ever has. Phill Spencer loves to throw numbers about. Tflops means jack shit for gaming. Just a number they like to use to make their console look powerful.

    And even if Tflops did mean something, no console will ever achieve that theoretical number due to the limits I just described. Its been the same way every console launch.

    Simple laws of physics. The smaller something is, the less cooling and power you can have. So its never gonna compete with a desktop PC of similar specs.

    I think it will be a great console. And give a good experience. But it’ll never crush PC like everyone claims. This level of hype happened with the xbox x. And same before on xbox one.

    We have this debate every generation. Hype hype hype. Because they know its what sells. Nothing better than brainwashing a bunch of ignorant fools who believe they are buying a 600 dollar machine that has 2k PC levels of performance. Easy money for Microsoft.



  33. Kman on June 22, 2021 at 8:40 pm

    Xbox is not lying you PS fanboy



  34. Ryan Doherty on June 22, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    1080p 120fps🤤



  35. Noah Cook on June 22, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    Should I upgrade my pc or buy the new Xbox?



  36. Mamunur Rahman on June 22, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    If pc can’t do it properly, how the fuck is console gonna do it ?



  37. samuel hale on June 22, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    Better quality high definition textures and super high polygon count is where its at… not higher resolutions. If a game has average textures and average polygon counts 4k will not save it! There are alot of games out there now that still look beautiful even running on 1080p.



  38. Ryan Alexander on June 22, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    Off cource they are there still isnt even a disc that can hold 8k content so how is it going to be 8k. uhd blue ray disc can only hold native 4k and thats the disc drive they are all using in new gen. If they do it. It will only ever be upscaled 8k so ull get all that ghosting and blur once again. Yes hdmi 2.1 can output 8k which are in new gen.but what they dont tell you is that there disc drive cannot output 8k discs yet. If 8k gaming does happing it will be in years to come with a new version that the disc can hold 8k content and a disc drive the can output 8k



  39. Alfredo alonso on June 22, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    I got 8k tv



  40. farhad aa on June 22, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    xbox: uses x86 architecture just like pc, so why not sell as a pc.
    1. money, uses micro transaction for limited "special" features, while pc gives those for free with unlimited amount of features.
    2. piracy and emulation, could get legal issues.
    3. control over their consumers



  41. versia on June 22, 2021 at 8:50 pm

    this is coming from a pc gamer and i think this a good thing especially with the release of the new graphics cards with 8k support it might make 8k the new 4k pretty cool ngl



  42. connorwilky on June 22, 2021 at 8:51 pm

    Will DisplayPort be compatible with an adapter? I only ask because I don’t really want to buy a hdmi 2.1 yet because they are hella expensive



  43. K Barrie on June 22, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    What would be a good go to monitor for console gaming? For myself a casual gamer



  44. clipy gg on June 22, 2021 at 8:54 pm

    TCA nice



  45. Gamers pro on June 22, 2021 at 8:54 pm

    yes !show us ! liar



  46. Stanch btw on June 22, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    To get 120 FPS will I need to get a 144 hertz moniter or is 60 good?



  47. GhostWolfViking on June 22, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    ”Next gen” upgrades running at 4k 30fps with enhanced lighting and ssd hard drives. $500. 120fps at 1080p with enhanced lighting turned off. We won’t see any Xbox Series X exclusives at launch. Here come 2 years of upgraded games we already played. 💩



  48. Highrise on June 22, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    4k 120fps press F to doubt.



  49. Kacper Jaskowski on June 22, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    man tbh i don,t give a shit about 4k and 8k i just want stable fps



  50. Meka on June 22, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Just give me 1440p60fps for all titles. That’s all I want.
