Your expected order availability: Q1 2022 

 

I think the key word is "Your", since you already locked in the reservation, it still says Q1. If you didn't, it says Q2 now.

I wanted to sell my phone I’m using with the backbone but idk if I want to be without a dedicated streamer now until like Feb or whatever. I think I still might and just use my main phone until then so hope it’s Dec.

Also, I have no idea why retailers don’t let people get in line this way for all these sorts of things. Just send it out once my number comes up in the line. I think that would get rid of a LOT of the frustration around purchasing gaming hardware.

So just based on this thread a lot of our usual PC people are buying this but I'm watching the Digital Foundry video at the moment and I'm concerned about performance. It looks like this is weaker than an Xbox Series S. What kind of performance do you guys expect to get out of this thing @Mr.Vic20 @stepee? From the videos a lot of the games seems to be running at 30fps. You guys think this thing can put out AAA games at a good 60fps?

Well a 800p maximum resolution should put it in the same ballpark depending on the game. Of course if it’s running at 720p on s then expect maybe doing a 600p resolution. 

 

Probably can do AAA last gen games at 60fps for some of them, but I wouldn’t go into this expecting more than 720p/30 on current gen games.

 

But that is a hell of an accomplishment still this early in the gen. And this will be with console settings, not super toned down switch ports.

I'm not Vic, or Stepee, but at 720p, it'll be fine. Sure, it's limited to 60hz instead of 120hz for the Series S, but I think broadly speaking, it'll be fine. Besides, 1080p, which is what the Series S is more marketed towards, is 2.25x the resolution of 720p. Should be about right for a 2 TFLOP next-gen APU.
