I'd suspect performance of a RX 5700 out the consoles. So he's probably not wrong though it's also probably not far off if it's a Max-Q variant.

Considering a laptop with a 2080 Max Q costs easily double what the next gen consoles are projected to cost, I'd damn well hope it could.

This is also true. It'll be interesting to see the GPU power levels of next gen consoles. Both will effectively use identical CPUs. It's gonna be down to GPU once again like last launch. Wouldn't surprise me if it's a case of 5700/5700xt or even closer for both.

They really should both be using the best available, I hope Microsoft don't once again go down the less powerful route for some gimmick.

There will be few versions. So there should be one with strong hardware in it.

Rumours are the 1x will be re released as their lower end console.

Makes sense.

Nvidia desperate for attention again I see /rolls eyes.

I disagree. No console player will pay $1000 for the best. While yes I'd love to see the best available at a cheaper price because of mass production, etc, just not feasible.

A 5700/xt is a massive step up already from the original HD7850ish launch. It'll probably even be lower. To cut costs for SSD and memory.

That's not what I meant, I should have been clearer, I meant they shouldn't put parts in that are obvious cut downs of higher end parts to save money i.e the OG XB1 vs the PS4, PS4 had some quite distinct advantages over the XB1 in graphics, FPS, Res etc... even though they were both using the same CPU and GPU architecture until the Pro and X revisions came out.

I'd say it will easily quadruple the price of the consoles. The chip itself probably costs more to the manufacturers than the consoles will cost consumers.
