This game looks average, nothing to be excited about for console gamers. Console gamers have much better games to play than this. But I can see how PC Gamers would be excited for this, they don't have many games better than Metro

1440p Ultrawide 120 FPS, with Open Studio Headphones and Simulated Surround sound...

Nothing better, best FoV, best periperals and concentration.

My home theatre in the living room is nothing but a novelty.... even with HDR and proper speakers, you never have that same quality of audio.

That must be a really poor living room setup

Yeah.

I've played Hellblade with binaural recording and my Sennheiser HD 558. I expected to be wowed, based on some YouTube videos I'd seen prior, but it wasn't as impressive as a speaker system. I barely recognized the surround simulation. It still mostly felt like stereo. Almost no games have binaural recording. A lot of games do have simpler virtual surround options, but I've been gaming with headphones long enough that I know these features are gimmicks. I'm trying out "Windows Sonic for Headphones" right now. Testing the pod race in Star Wars Episode I. I notice no difference with the feature on and off. I watched this pod race two nights ago on the TV and was more impressed by the way sound was used for these rumbling, roaring, zipping vehicles.

I don't know if I even want an ultrawide monitor. I bought my ASUS MX27AQ only three and a half years ago for 460 dollars. I don't feel ready to buy another one. The dimensions of human vision are closer to 16x9 than 21x9. The clear part of your vision is narrower than 16x9. I guess the increased peripheral vision might be nice, the substitute for that I mean. I also checked out curved TVs prior to buying my 64 inch TV and found them skewed and ugly, no matter what distance I viewed them from. I was aware the whole time that the middle was farther away. The objects in the picture should have gently bent around my vision, but they didn't. Don't know if it's any better when sitting in front of a monitor, but I can't imagine why it would be better.

I just remembered another drawback of gaming on a PC. If it's a game designed for a controller, like Dark Souls and probably Sekiro, a table isn't that well suited for them. Either you keep your forearms on the edge of the table, which isn't that comfortable, or you hold the controller beneath the table, which is also awkward and sometimes causes you to bump the table. You could scoot farther back, but then you're not at the intended distance for your monitor. I don't know what platform to get Sekiro for now.

Great post, ggood to see more people thinking for themselves instead of falling for the 21:9 and headphone hype

Nah 3840x2160 HDR is glorious

3440x1440 is just wide screen 1440p, its overrated as hell and humans see in 15x9 aspect ratio anyway

@ronvalencia: With this so called leak it has the GPU listed at 1GHz even if Navi implemented infinity fabric to increase compute units which it would need to in order to hit 12 TFLOPS if its at 1GHz core frequency even with a 60% increase in power efficiency it would still be hard to get anywhere close to 12TFLOPs, based on what we know of GCN and how going to 7nm made little to no difference its safe to assume that the TFLOP count of the coming consoles will be less than 10.

Speculation aside, I think its too soon if their only choice is AMD and GCN is the best they have right now even if Navi does what its meant to do all it would mean is a console in 2020 that has the horsepower to compete with a 2019 RTX 2060 or a 2017 GTX 1080 performance once launched at best.

My whole point is 12 Flops doesn't look achievable at 150w with GCN and I have little to no faith that Navi will bring the TDP anything past 20-30% over a 7nm Vega.

I bet Radeon VII can achieve 11.5 TF @ under 200W if you undervolt and under clock it. Maybe more

And Navi will do better per watt

HD 7850 was GCN 1, 130 watts , 1.8 Teraflops, 28 nm, 2012 release date

RX 480 was GCN 4, 150 watts, 5.8 Teraflops, 14nm, 2016 release date

For next gen consoles at earliest is 2020, maybe 2021, at worst Navi 7nm, and at worst GCN 6

Even if everything hits " at worst" 12 teraflop minimum seems more than plausible

Simply put, PS4 has the most must play games this gen
