    The X. I want to get the 4K versions of current gen games that came out for the One X before the next gen stuff comes out.

    But note that you are limiting yourself in terms of frame rate or resolution unless you own one of the latest greatest 2020 model TVs that can take a 4K/120Hz signal.

    Secondly, Drew the chroma settings don’t really affect much; they’re just a way to store HDR video data on a disc or for streaming in a smaller file size by removing some image information that is almost imperceptible to the human eye. But for video that’s generated by the PC (gameplay) then the full 4:4:4 chroma setting can be used as long as the TV can accept that signal.

    You’re probably thinking of RGB range, which should be set to the full setting for both the TV and whatever is connected to it.
    This Q probably belongs in the Tech Support thread. But I have a 2008 Panasonic plasma (still) and when it is hooked up to the PC and I'm playing games, I think it looks slightly dark and low res compared to my (admittedly far newer and higher-res) 34" 21:9 1440p Dell or Xiaomi monitors. Should I do something like this?

    I mean, I guess I could also just replace it with an LG OLED, but from what I understand I'd have to calibrate stuff anyway. Plus, school fees and other irritating expenses especially when I have no time to play games. And the need to upgrade my work and home desktops from Core 6th Gen to Ryzen 4xxx.

    Oh yes, making adjustments will definitely help (I wouldn't call it calibration, because you need specialised equipment to properly calibrate a TV screen). Doing that is much cheaper than buying a new one, as long as what you've got hasn't degraded past the point of fixing via the settings sliders. Can't hurt to do it either, so what have you got to lose?

    With the question of calibrating a new TV, they are pretty good out-of-the-box. One brand, I think it's a 2020 LG OLED, has a factory calibration in a premium model that is specific to each panel as it rolls off the assembly line. In general you want to use game mode or cinema mode with all image processing turned off, as this will be closest to 'reference' image setup, and then fine tune things (contrast, saturation, sharpness) to meet your preference. Always run backlight at full pelt on an HDR screen.

    Well, yeah. I mean, not proper calibration. But OK, I will try and sort it out.

    The plasma isn't HDR (same with my 34" monitors) and I'm reasonably happy with it. Of course HDR would be better, but when a 55" LG BX is one month's school fees for one child then: Yeah, nah.

    Xbox Series S doesn’t run Xbox One X versions but instead Xbox One S versions but the Xbox Series S can double the Xbox One S frame rate so the Xbox Series S is sort of like Two Xbox One Ses but not really parallel which is why it’s a Xbox Series S Instead of a Xbox One Two S

    Feels like the Xbox Series S is a steal at $300, but is the XSS > X1X?
    I know the X1X has more TFLOPS and memory, but the XSS has a much newer CPU and much, much faster storage (my biggest gripe with the One and PS4 is the SATA II connection where an SSD barely makes a difference).

    I read an analysis that said, because of the generational improvements, the 4 TFLOPS of the XSS is slightly better than the 6 TFLOPS of the XOX. That, in addition to the CPU and storage improvements you mentioned, mean it should be better in nearly every situation. That being said, for games that got XOX improvements of better textures, filters, etc, the XSS will *not* get those enhancements, it will just play the original versions very smoothly. One of my reasons for choosing the XSX is so that I will be effectively getting upgrades for games I already own and play (or want to play) regularly.

    More details on XSS performance: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/d...t-really-works

    However, there is one more feature that Microsoft has only mentioned in passing - and now we know more details, we're excited by it: the idea that select Xbox One titles will run at double the frame-rate on the new consoles, including Series S.

    "We designed the Series S to enhance the Xbox One S games in a way that the Xbox One X can't do," system architect Andrew Goossen tells us. "We made it easy for existing Xbox One S games to be updated to run with double the frame-rate when played on Series S as well. When games are updated, existing games can query to determine whether they're running on the new console. And in terms of the performance, the Series S provides well over double the effective CPU and GPU performance over the Xbox One, making it pretty straightforward for the games to do this. And in fact, the Series S GPU runs the Xbox One S games with better performance than the Xbox One X."

    This proves once again that flops are not a good measure of hardware performance.
