@Bold Well lucky for Sony and Microsoft that they'll still be using the same OS for next generation ... 

We don't know that for sure, there isn't any evidence to tell us what OS they are using for next-gen... Or for that matter "OS's". (As in plural, aka. Multiples.)

The PS4 has auxiliary ARM cores in them to offload background tasks so I see no reason why Sony couldn't expand the possibility to offload the entire OS as well and the same applies to Microsoft ... 

What the Playstation 4 has... Has absolutely zero bearing on what the Playstation 5 or the next Xbox will have... As again, we lack any evidence that disproves or substantiates the inclusion of auxiliary ARM cores.

Only 31% of the American households last year owned a 4K display. Other nations have arguably far lower penetration rates aside from possibly either South Korea and/or Japan ...

Which makes 4k relevant.

4K looks to be irrelevant at the start of next generation ... 

31% is a very relevant piece of the home TV display pie, that is 10's if not 100's of millions of gamers to market towards.

AMD has a WSA with GF so they have to keep buying 12nm wafers from them until the end of 2021 ... 

I wouldn't be surprised if AMD created their chiplet architecture just to get rid of those 12nm wafers ... 

Yeah... That doesn't make AMD's notebook GPU's good by any stretch of the imagination. - Nor is it my problem anyway.
