Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg: Next Generation Will See a 'Big Upgrade in CPU' - News

Aaron Greenberg, senior director for global product marketing at Xbox, speaking in the November issue of the Official Xbox Magazine discussed the next generation of consoles. He promised there will be a "big upgrade" when it comes to the CPU. 

"But, with the next-gen, I think you’ll see a big upgrade in CPU, because we really want to make sure that you don’t have any compromises with the framerates," said Greenberg. "Yes, we can do 4K, but we can also do 120 frames per second. So I think that type of capability will be something that people don’t see today."

The next generation consoles, Xbox Scarlett and PlayStation 5, will launch in Holiday 2020. The Xbox Scarlett will launch with Halo: Infinite

just lock it to stable 60 fps and 4k...... getting 80-120 fps or just locked 60fps + extra eye candy...... the eye candy wins out.

You know it's going to be 30 fps plus eye candy instead. With 60 reserved for first person shooters and some first-party titles.

Not all Devs will opt for 60 with there push for realism.

Try getting a tv that does natural 120fps

If they try to push either of those consoles as 4k/120fps I will personally laugh at anyone who believes it. Some power of the cloud shit right here.

Why not? Battlefield V alredy runs at native 4k 60ps on the XOneX

Not even sure why I bothered to look this up but....
"On the resolution front, both the consoles are employing what seems like a dynamic scaler. The Xbox One X seems to have some scenes render in native 4K but drops down accordingly in some other places. The PS4 Pro on the other hand, delivers the same results as Battlefield 1 with 1800p as the highest resolution. From there it drops down just like the Xbox One X version. Artifacts can be observed in both versions suggesting that a checkerboard solution is in place "

No, that's not native 4k/60, it's dynamically that resolution sometimes but the image is semi constructed of checker board artefacts.

Thank for stating the obvious.. Its good to know these corps are making the investment.

indeed, those jaguar apu's in all the current home consoles are going to look pants next to even a g1 ryzen cpu.

Being capable is irrelevant when your devs will have 30 FPS as the priority. Perhaps they will offer 60/1080p as TVs do not do 1440p unfortunately. Cannot go back to 30 FPS, will once for HZD 2 when I can have a 30 day Amazon return.
