Checkered rendering is not upscaling though. They are essentially rendering in 1080p, in a roundabout way. You can't tell me that any upscaled 540 could ever look like this:Native resolution is the resolution you're rendering your game to. Anything else is non native. Whenever it is an effective way or not to upscale your picture.
Playstation 4 was announced in NY in Hammerstein ballroom, home of ECW.
Dev kits go through spec revisions all the time. So yes, they had kits out, but they were not 'finalized' hardware.
So maybe there was some tweaks, who knows. We will find out soon enough.
I am interested in hearing about the hardware but I'm with you on wanting software reveals/news at this. Hopefully we get our next look at God of War, Spider-Man and others at this.I'm not interested in the hardware, but I hope we get some software reveals/news on the side. Since they're skipping Gamescom again (in terms of conferences), this event could serve as a replacement.
Dunno. I doubt they got it to 6tf. I could see Sony maybe squeezing out high 4's, maybe just barely 5.

Screen is from PS4 version, and I've intentionally picked the one with the most sub-pixel detail I could find where the resolution problems would appear the most visible. 540p uspcaled would look like a muddy pixel soup.
Also, what of the games that use dynamic resolutions? Other than telling you what's the maximum and minimum buffer in that case, there's little information that can be inferred from that, outside of careful scene by scene analysis.
Lol here we go.
It won't play games at native 4K without the upscaling/diagonal rendering thing they referred to, meaning that's not true 4K.
The chipset and silicon was finalized long before the final dev kit being completed. They can't just "upgrade" the GPU to 5 or 6tflops in response to Scorpio. If the plan had been 4Tflops, that will remain the case.
Holy cow! NEO and NX both to be revealed on September?? Is gon' be a nice month for gaming.
LMAO haven't seen this gif since that memorable hype thread when the PS4 was about to launch in 2013!
My point is how to call it other by its lengthy name, and more importantly, does it matter? The screen I posted looks better than many native 1080p games that employ poor, or no antialiasing.I know it's not basic upscaling. But it's not native res. Point. There's a reason why we have this "1080pr" expression. Because it's not really 1080p. Whatever technique you use, or dynamic res, native means native.
Likely 2016, at the September event pre-order now for October release. This is an upgraded PS4 not a new gen, so less time needed for marketing. There will be no Neo only games, so no need to advertise a launch lineup.

We don't want no 4k30 games. Make it run everything at 1080p60 and 4K output for bluray/netflix, call it ps4k and it will dominate the console market until next gen.
If the reveal event ins next month, it's pretty much guaranteed to be a holiday release at the latest. Andrew house indicated that it was going to be an Apple/Samsumg type of launch for the console. Reveal the console, and release it a few weeks later. Also, that last sentence, LOL. Companies prefer not to be put in a position where the consumer has to choose between devices, they're not going to specifically release the Neo in march just to screw with Nintendo. lmao.
Im gonna dream big and none of you can stop me! Bloodborne 60fps with no frame pacing!!!
I doubt Sony or MS are worried about Nintendo.
Patrick and Austin just did a periscope talking about Neo. They think it's launching this year, the reason for a tech showcase is because they don't have a game to show ready and there might be a spec bump but not sure how much. Patrick said that since Scorpio got announced Sony is worried about Neo looking outdated.
