PS4 Pro and XBOX Scorpio, are we idiot to spend more than $1000 on GPUs?

As title.

PS4 Pro seems to be near to 4K and XBOX Scorpio says that will do real 4K without upscaling.

Are we idiot that we spend more than $1000 for high end SLI and we even struggle to sustain 4k in certain titles?

Its a plain damn fact. Optimization consoles>PC. Sure Scorpio might be able to push 4k @30fps. Either way. You can bet the graphic settings would be no where near a real powerful 4k pc machine. Bottom line though. I cant take MS serious or believe them at all with the 4k non sense. Remember Xbox 360 all games would be @720p.

Yeah we seen how that went. Sony even went further saying all games would be 1080p with PS3. We see how that went as well. And now the current consoles. A complete joke. So, what ever. I have a GTX 1080 RIGHT NOW and its already more powerful then Scorpio that can actually push 4k with no "trickery". Of course with settings not at max and turned down. But, near max. Say on "high" compared to "ultra".

By the time they release this thing. PC gamers will react to been there done that kinda thing. Because we have gpu's now that can handle 4k extremely well with reasonable settings. And its only going to get better next year with Volta.

I am in the 1440p camp with my 1080. I think its perfect for it.

I wonder where the $1k dual gpu thought came from?

a single Nvidia 1080 does pretty well at 4k, especially when you consider zero filters need to be activated/applied on monitors/tvs under 50'' or so in size.


Isnt there a GTA-V video of 4k on a single 1080 mildly overclocked getting over 60fps?

It is much easier to believe Microsoft is lying than a $400 console will do true 4K.

Considering a 3 year old gpu (as of now) will do just as good if not better at 4k than whatever these two muster up I'd say it's a ridiculous topic. 4k is old news on pc and is getting easier and easier to run as time goes by.

Screw 4k I'm going oldschool. Mini NES for $60 with 30 preloaded games is where it's at.yessir.gif

IMHO unless you are rich you are an idiot again just an opinion not a fact and in actuality I prefer not to use a word like Idiot to describe someone willing to pay the ridicules cost's Nvidia is asking such for such cards like the $1300 USD TITAN that 4 years ago would selling for $600USD. These are dark ages in both GPU's(inflated prices) and CPU with the stagnation and monopoly's or better stated lack of real competition. Although things might change shorty in the CPU department if ZEN can deliver.

It depends on your expendable income and preferences, not much else. My 1080 hasn't had a single issue running games at 4K 60 FPS, something these upcoming consoles cannot do.
I owned an Xbox One for a little while and a PS4 for nearly 3 years, I will not be returning to consoles any time soon. They are far behind PC standards.

The new PS4 will run upscaled 4K @ 30 FPS and Scorpio may run native 4K @ 30 FPS and may have dynamic resolution in some games.
I think these new consoles will be great, but not for most PC enthusiasts who already have a decent system.

Even without consoles, answer is YES!
