      I always enjoying your video because of good content and a lot of clear informations about PCs :D
      It's insane to turn an old console into PC but still looks great

                            BTW Horizon 4 runs at 30fps with perfectly executed motion blur and frame pacing creating the illusion that it hits 60fps

                                                  Isn’t this just a pc in a xbox chassis? Not an over powered xbox? I’m so confused

I might be wrong if its good or not. But 8k? That is the greatest quality right now. Its called Xbox Project Scarlett. I might be wrong btw if its better than ps4. But 8k is crazy.
