Despite SX flying of the shelves much faster than SS?!?

It was quite evident how much demand & scalping went on with PS5 & SX. 
 

Must be some real head honcho at M$ to decide the exactly opposite of the on going trend. 

 

MS would rather sell 2 Series S than 1 Series X. Makes sense from subscription POV.

 

In US etc where people do holiday shopping, anything will sell. Especially affordable items.

According to that rumour, it was a cost saving measure. The silicon has a fixed size and apparently, it was more cost-effective to produce more S than X. Keep in mind that S in any case has a much smaller die.

Dargon quest 11, there are many more just check the title page if you are scrolling the list in game pass and go to screenshot there are usually one or two gameplay screenshots there as well.

Divinity 2 OS beats everything that's out there. Amazing
Yakuza like a dragon is godwork bruh. I hate turn based games and it's combat is a breath of fresh air. I am loving the game. GOAT of turn based games. It's very fast paced unlike the likes of DQ11 and grinding isn't much to progress in story. Now just need to freakin make 3mil yen to move the story.

God can't wait for a YLAD2

Are you...are you seriously trying to weasel your way out of that one?!

 

You telling people to be relevant when your argument makes no sense here. Nobody said hdmi 2.0 doesn't support 1080p120, so why are you so pissed?! I said that support is meaningless with TVs having 60Hz panels, which is also a fact.


to give some context of what I was trying to discuss - I have a LG OLED B7T TV from 2017, 4 years old with hdmi 2.0 and I always thought that I wouldn’t be able to play games at 120fps because it’s 4 year old and I can play only upto 4k60 through hdmi 2.0

 

but recently I discovered that if you change some settings on XSX, even my 4 year old OLED is able to play all games at 120fps. That was a really pleasant surprise 

 

for example, in Doom Eternal, I played the full game at 4k60 and was seeing only ray tracing mode or performance mode. I sorely wanted to play DE at 120fps because it’s my favorite game. Recently I discovered that if you turn off HDR and change other settings, DE shows high framerate mode and I was finally able to play DE at 120fps on a 4 year old TV with only hdmi 2.0. I am also playing halo infinite at 120fps and many others. 120fps is a sheer delight and being able to play it on a 4 year old TV was a big bonus without having to buy a latest spec TV

 

I know that not many panels from 3-4 years ago supported refresh rates above 60hz but my TV was top tier at that time and supported 120hz refresh rate even with hdmi 2.0

 

I think most gaming monitors have hdmi 2.0 but still manage 120fps as hdmi supports upto 1440p120 without HDR and 1080p120 with HDR so, good enough 

 

also, I was referring only to people with 3-4 year old TVs with gaming as a hobby. Such people usually have good quality or expensive TVs because gaming is an expensive hobby and such TVs most likely support 120hz refresh 

 

also, I wrote this reply late because I gave my CFA Level 2 exam last week and didn’t want to get distracted with online discussions

That's a tough nut to crack (especially with a full-time job ) Got your results yet ?

I gave the exam last Saturday. Results will be out in approx. 2 months

I'm contemplating giving the level 2. I was set on dropping it but everyone around me is studying and I'm feeling fomo. How much prep needed considering we come from similar academic and professional background. 1 hour everyday for 2 months would work? Can take 2-3 days of leave towards the end.

Level 2 is significantly more cognitively challenging than Level 1. 

 

My personal recommendation, if you want to do it in 2-3 months and have a very good chance of passing, would be to study every weekday for 2-3 hours in the morning before work (trying to study after work may not practically feasible as the material is challenging) and try to study for 8-10 hours on weekends as feasible. 
 

Still, I think that 2-3 months may be quite challenging with work taking up your mindspace as well (not to mention family commitments). You definitely have to give up gaming for this time frame. 5-6 months will be more comfortable and will tangibly increase chances of passing.

 

here’s a fun comparison of the levels, which I believe is quite accurate
