Also, minimum specs and minimum specs are not always the same stuff:
At the end of the video, you can see some benches of Rise of the Tomb Raider where it runs at 34FPS on a GTX 460 in Ultra settings... while the minimum requirement states a 650 is needed. The 650 is about as powerful as the 460, which means in turn that the minimum requirement of this game is actually to play the game at Ultra settings with 30FPS in 1080p and not a low preset 720p with 30ish FPS.
Like I said in another thread with the same theme, I managed to run a couple games on my old Radeon HD 5770 which listed an 7770 or even R7 280 as minimum settings. They don't always mean it doesn't run at anything lower, just that you can't run them in the best settings anymore.
True, you can play a lot of games on lower than the recommended settings. Rise of the tombraider also came out on 360, so I can understand that gives it some headroom. Nobody can force anyone to upgrade their pc and it all depends on what games you're into. However, pc gamers usually upgrade when games start coming out that just don't run well anymore. That's why hardly anyone uses anything lower than a GTX660 these days. You might be able to run anything fine until something like GTA6 comes along, that doesn't, and people will be looking to upgrade asap.
I also believe these next gen consoles will be a disaster for Nvidia who are selling their "mid-range" gpu's way to expensive. When people were upgrading for current gen they could get a GTX660 that costed $199 at launch or even a 750ti for $125. If you look now the RTX2060 is still $399. And if these next gen consoles really are on par with a RTX2080, it means the gpu will probably sit somewhere between a RTX3060 and RTX3070, which will probably cost between $400/600 or more at launch.
