All I really want from Ampere is HDMI 2.1. Just add that so I can get next years C9 and never need a monitor again.

Not really competing products, it's getting to the point where Playstation and Xbox won't have to compete with each other either. So many people buy all of them.

I think it's likely that the PS5 and OneX will increase the sales of high end pc gaming hardware. Console players get a little taste of higher frame rates and some mouse+keyboard action and all the sudden the next generation of pc hardware starts to look like a nice upgrade. No matter how close to pc a console gets, it will have to remain a closed system in order to hold a performance efficiency advantage. That leaves the pc as the logical upgrade path.
Agreed - If you could duel boot the thing into Windows 10 it would be great.

Until that point consoles will never be a substitute to PC.

I use my PC for Work, School, Streaming, Browsing, Gaming, VR, Flight Sim, Scanning Photos, Archiving VHS tapes, Video and Photo Editing.

So I'll get way more use and value out of dropping a better video card into my PC that I use for 14+ hours a day than buying an console that's a one-trick pony.

*That can pay 35 years worth of PC games and software (DOS, Flash, Emulation) and there is no such thing as backwards compatibility, no subscription services. Oh and MODs, so many MODs.

Or DP 2.0. I wonder, if they put a USB-C port on a GPU, would that automatically make it eligible for DP 2.0? Or will it need an updated DP port?

here is another thing. In most of the developing world, people really can't afford Consoles or even pay for games. What 'gamers' do is buy a laptop with a low end gpu like a 1060 equivalent and either play pirated games or play F2P games. In terms of user bases, this base may be way bigger than the console user base.

There is an endless supply of free games out there. If you keep an eye out you can even get some AAA titles. Like Epic giving away GTA, I know I've picked up several popular titles recently for free.

So if you're on a shoe string budget I'd still go PC. Even if you're stuck running a crap laptop with integrated graphics you can still play, older games will be fine, even with newer ones at 720P and still have fun.

P.S. I 2nd the DP 2.0 and HDMI 2.1 being a must have for me to purchase.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.

Off track here. I just wanna comment on your r0ach quote. Because it is hilarious and sad how so obsessed one person is about their supposed mouse troubles.
