That is the video in the OP.   :P

That's why it's relevant  ::)

That means one of us is a lazy OP. 

And the other is a lazy reader.

As a next gen console, I much prefer the XSX.

But it's kind of cute as a side thing.  Maybe the PS5 DE slim will be that size. That'd be worth buying.

the ps5 DE slim will still be bigger than the ps4...

That's why they are making the PS5SS (super slim).

I think this might be the first time in history that a company has made a next gen console "weaker" than their previous console. Series S has all the fancy new next gen features but some games will run better on One X.

Is it weaker?

It has a weaker gpu and ram, but can use next gen tricks to make up for that.

Is not strong enough to play xbox one x games unless they are ported.

I don't think that's true. The GPU architecture is much better so it is actually a better GPU overall. The RAM is GDDR6 which gives it an advantage, plus it has the SSD and a vastly superior CPU.

That's why he mentioned next gen tricks. New features can work more efficiently.  

But older games aren't likely to take advantage of the new architecture.

Remains to be seen how it ends up. GPUs are really complicated. Arithmetic compute is just one part of the puzzle, and I don't think we know how the rest lines up.

(Technically even that comes with a caveat that compute *can* be counted different ways. But I doubt it makes a big difference unless youre comparing really old GPUs to new ones)
