Common that  is why we all must have hacked consoles and rooted phones because we only buy these new devices to run emulators and not pirated games lol.

Using the old tech is just too logical for everyone lol.

I agree with you. Nothing like the original experience.

Tell that to the poor sods that played Bayonetta on the PS3.

Or who watched porn on a Nokia 3210 screen.

Sometimes tech brings us new shiny things with multipurpose screen protectors!!

As someone who doesn't own a X1 but does own a massive library of original Xbox and 360 titles, BC has been one of the most compelling features they have bought to the X1 system.

That said, I still have 2 X360s which do a perfectly fine job of running those games and in fact the resolution boost would be lost on me as I play games at either 1080p or below that on various different screens/projector.

But yeah the BC efforts are commendable to be sure.

even on 1080p screen the game would be super sampled, it would still be a gigantic leap.

It's not exactly 500e worth of difference really though is it? I mean for the same money I could upgrade from my 780TI to a 1080TI considering I still play stuff at 1080p it would effectively be equally underutilized power considering I currently can get OW to 300fps @ 1080p but would still be possible to turn on even crazier light effects while at that silly frame rate.

I just mean, for now the perks of an X1X to me include the ability to play games I already can play but with a framerate and resolution which my nostalgia googles already has applied to my memories of those titles :D If I was to go back and play some of the games from last gen right now I would be a little taken aback that GTA4 doesn't look as shiny as GTAV on PS4/PC but still I don't think I'm going to shell out the cash when I could easily get the PC versions of those older titles and do more with them.

I'm certain though that people who don't have a Ps4 or gaming rig would be delighted with all the extra bells and whistles that the X brings to their gaming, I'm trying not to sound too negative on the system while just getting across the point that I don't think it's for me.

yea if you have a good PC no reason to buy an X.

Ryzen 7 1700, 16GB 3000mhz DDR4 vengeance teamed up with a MSI OC Twin Frozr 780ti @1085mhz and 6.25TB of storage (250gb SSD, 2x3TB 7200rpm high performance drives)

780TI is a few years old, but it's on par/better than a 1060 and this comparison uses the stock clock of the 780TI which would be 785mhz

Easily capable of pretty much any graphics task at 1080p at least.

Should the best reason to own a new premium system be a game from 8 years ago?

The game is loved by many and people have been begging for a remaster, because RDR has such a gorgeous world thats being held back by low resolution and jaggies, and the game can't be played anywhere else in this form.   

It is indeed gorgeous world, 4K just makes it look better (though all the flaws, like low res ground textures, are even more apparent in 4K).

Game itself is, story wise, a bit of a incoherent and disjointed mess unfortunately, especially in second part of game.

Sorry for completely randomly jumping in, but that's 1060 3GB version, it's slower than regular 1060, which easily beats 780TI

Huge difference alright.

 

edit - also it isn't slower it has 10% less cores in the 3GB version to the 6GB version, they've the same clock speeds (depending on the card versions of course)

There are other tech differences between the cards which give the 1060 an advantage over the 2 generation old 780TI and the fact that the power consumption of the 780TI is huge to achieve what the far more efficient 1060 can achieve, but that said, I'm not thinking about the power bill when gaming so couldn't give a rats.

Uhm...which makes it slower in games...who said anything about clocks?

Anyway, 780TI is still quite valid 1080p card, no point in upgrading it unless you go for higher res. I've put 1060 3GB last year in my other rig to replace ancient HD7770...now that was worthy upgrade.

You did

"it's slower than regular 1060,"

When talking about clock speed you would refer to that as speed, or you meant slower as in the card has less performance? You can get a 4ghz pentium 4 processor which would be faster than my Ryzen7 since it's clocked at just 3.7ghz as in the pentium 4 performs more operations per second than the Ryzen, the obvious difference is that most of those operations generate nothing but heat lol.

Think perhaps just confusion as you think the terms Clock speed and Speed are unrelated terms? But yeah both versions of the 1060 run at the same speed, there is just 10% less cores in the 3gb version which ends up obviously creating 10% less performance (in a perfectly optimized scenario for the 6gb version)
