Until the next round of GPU's come out and driver support hits that proverbial brick wall that shows AMD GPU's aging better and better performing at DX12 and Vulkan....time and time again...
Devs don't have to wait on drivers for console, games come right off the metal and DX12 is baked in this case. Underwritting this custom design is silly, AMD cores were built to be used this way to their fullest, no driver overhead like on PC reducing performance. In this case its running above the base clock of the PC part (one that features less CU's) , has a wide bus, hardware optimizations(not just software) ...this thing is going to be a graphics workhorse in a small box you can fit on your stand shelf. Pretty rad.
Consoles have drivers as well. They also get updated.
Consoles also share the same API's as PC and then some.
Consoles have bloated monolithic OS's.
AMD GPU's do tend to excel in a few scenario's because of Asynchronous Compute, but nVidia is owning AMD right now. That can't be disputed, nVidia has such a massive efficiency lead over AMD.
Look , we are going to dance forever on this one :P
I'm an Nvidia fan, actually Team Green all the way. I simply don't buy AMD GPU's, much to do with the fact that i have a large 3DVision catalog i still like to go back to.
Scorpio is packing some smart engineering for a small form factor solution though, and i have no doubt it will serve my 4K HDR TV well with those console games. We'll have to have the games IQ do the talking when they actually come out, but seems all is there for developers to put forth a nice balance of eye candy at 4K w/ HDR. Of course not everything can be native 4K, i pressume dynamic scaling (not checkerbaord) will be preferred solution when otherwise to maintain higher IQ settings and framerate. Plenty of buffer there to have HQ textures and assets to have to resort to reconstruction.
The GTX1060 argument is a funny one though. As a GTX780 owner that on these very forums was told that it wasn't up to snuff for 4K gaming when i used it as an example of 4K med/high capable i in the past following Scorpio's early spec unveil at E3(even though i did plenty of it at high settings), now a comparable 1060 is a better 4K alternative than what is in Scorpio ? If one is arguing a 1060 can do 4K, then one is arguing the Scorpio is adept for 4K also.
4K it is. Glad that's out of the way...lol
