Recommended Posts

Netflix predicts 'new 4K-friendly versions of both consoles will be delivered this coming fall', based on the increasing sales of 4K TVs. This could even mean a new HDMI 2.0 connector, since the current 1.4 standard only supports 4K at 30 Hz.

But will the games run on 4K too?!?!?

 

Well, interesting but useless really..

Now about that internet speed...


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

soz not soz. Games on consoles have to reach ultra settings before they can even consider 4k or even 1440p for that matter

Considering current consoles can barely run graphics intensive games at 1080p this seems to be ridiculous. And just because you can connect a console to a 4k monitor it doesn't mean you can play it at that resolution. Consoles have no options when it comes to resolution so none of these makes any sense.

When i read that for the first time i thought consoles were gonna support 4k gaming.

 

This would be the adapter:

I could make this mini ITX build on a console case.

But i would have to gut one.

Its not top end but you could swap the i3 with a i5 and the 960 with a 970 :D

Well, interesting but useless really..

This update should only affect movie streaming like Netflix. They would need much more than only a new decoder and better HDMI in order to play games at that resolution with acceptable details.

I very much doubt the 4K support is for gaming, rather for watching 4K movies.

Rumor has been out for a while that AMD is building a new 20nm APU for a XBOX refresh. Makes me wonder if they will upgrade to Puma while adding in GCN 1.2.

Op you have missed the key part being

 

"Netflix did, though, provide more detail on the thought processes Hunt was alluding to during the CES press conference. Namely that he believes that when both the PS4 and Xbox One consoles do their traditional two-year hardware refresh (which would be due around October or November) they will add the necessary components to deliver 4K video playback."

 

And afaik xbox one already does this just limited to 30hz which i don't know any movies out that are filmed in 60hz (i know there are some but ive never seen it)

Read the post people.

 

We are talking about 4K video content, not gaming.

 

We know....

4K TV does not equal 4K gaming. 4K TVs are becoming more common, so shows are being filmed in 4K, but that doesn't mean consoles will be expected to play games in 4K. and 30Hz is likely enough anyway, more cinematic they say.

I hate 24fps movies :(
