Next-gen Xbox arrives in Fall 2020: AMD powered, supports ray tracing and 120Hz 8K displays

8K just means that screens will continue to be ridiculously stretched beyond any logic (because 8K only says how many pixels horizontally, not vertically, so vertical can be anything you wish). They should probably switch to megapixels. At 16:9 the 8K screen would have 33 megapixels, while 4K has only 8 megapixels. So if they express the screen size in megapixels, the difference sounds bigger (good for marketing).

But those cinema aspect ratios are ridiculous. 16:9 is already too wide compared to the human visual system. Are they making those screens for aliens? Or maybe spiders (they have 8 eyes)?

Because if they are making them for humans, our visual field works best with the 3:2 aspect ratio. Anything wider than that means loss of vertical data. Basically, the wider the screen the more under-utilized our visual subsystem is. I vote for 3:2 (1.5) aspect ratio. Let's make the screens great again!

#1 I can't name a single person who has an 8K display... Most of the people I know are still in the 720p or 1080p life.
Your computer is likely equipped with a pair of DisplayPort 1.4 ports, so it's probably also "capable" of 8K120.

This is just marketing speak to hype up the capabilities of new hardware. Marketing department doesn't care if you and others don't have an 8K display yet.

Well it's a 2080Ti so I'd assume - without checking - that it should be capable of 8K.

Thing is...my monitor is a 34" curved gaming monitor that isn't even capable of 4K and I don't miss it cause the picture is perfect.

2k is where gaming is at and will be for the next 5 years. That doesn't mean 4k isn't going to be used for cinematic games, but there are very few monitors, that can do 4k @ 120hz/144hz... that are worth buying.

OMG AMD seems to be inside every direction the future is heading, PlayStation, Stadia, Samsung, and now XBOX... Even Intel now has AMD technologies inside too... just hope they do make enough money out of those and become a truly worthy competitor though.
Game consoles have run on custom AMD/Radeon architecture for years.
