Same. I don't have a 4K monitor yet, so what do I need a 4K console for? Would rather save probably $150 compared to buying Series X and put that $150 towards saving to get a 4K monitor.
The 4k console will do super sampling, which will reduce aliasing/stair stepping effects, making images sharp and clear, there are big benefits even if you are only gaming at 1080P or less.
If there is a reduction in Ram capacity, you will likely loose out on texture detail... There may be more (Framerate etc') but those are the immediate reductions you will see first hand.
True, but with most AAA developers already using good AA methods these days, and the fact that the native 1440p on Lockhart/S would also provide some super sampling on a 1080p screen, I don't think it's enough of a selling point.
It's true that having 4 GB less RAM than Series X might result in some lower quality textures, but are you really going to see much difference on a 1080p screen? Some difference for sure, but I don't think it will be hugely noticeable unless you're playing on a larger 4K screen.
I think that 6-7 tflop should be able to handle 1440p without framerate issues, based on the PC 1440p vs 4k benchmarks I've looked at.
