So whats everyone gaming on at the moment with the new or old consoles? do you see a difference in maybe your upgrade? or more of the same.

With the new consoles I'm playing on a Sony X950G. The old ones got relegated to a Samsung KS8000, Panasonic ZT60, and a Pioneer PDP - 5020FD.

Sounds like all of their new sets are going to be great, they all get the same new processor and all have full bandwidth HDMI 2.1 and I read somewhere that they'll be getting improved dolby vision as well.

New Samsungs sound cool..?


Neo QLED Takes a Quantum Leap in TV Display Technology​

Samsung is introducing a whole new display technology, Neo QLED, to its flagship 8K (QN900A) and 4K (QN90A) models. Samsung is taking QLED to the next level enabled by new light source, Quantum Mini LEDprecisely controlled by Quantum Matrix Technology and Neo Quantum Processor, a powerful picture processor optimized for Neo QLED.



Samsung designed the Quantum Mini LED to be 1/40 the height of a conventional LED. Instead of using a lens to disperse light, and a package to fix the LED in place, the Quantum Mini LED has incredibly thin micro layers filled with many more LEDs. Quantum Matrix Technology enables ultra-fine and precise control of the densely packed LEDs, preventing blooming—and allowing viewers to enjoy content as its meant to be seen. Neo QLED increases the luminance scale to 12-bit with 4096 steps; this helps make dark areas darker and bright areas brighter, resulting in a more precise and immersive HDR experience. And Neo QLED benefits from Samsung’s proprietary, powerful Neo Quantum Processor with enhanced upscaling capabilities. By using up to 16 different neural network models, each trained in AI upscaling and deep learning technology, the Neo Quantum Processor can optimize picture quality to 4K and 8K picture output regardless of the input quality.



Samsung’s 2021 Neo QLED 8K features a new Infinity One Design—a nearly bezel-less screen providing an even more immersive viewing experience in a sleek design and form factor. And Neo QLED 8K’s attachable Slim One Connect box—an all-new cable management system that can be attached to the TV’s back—allows for an easier install and cleaner aesthetic. The 2021 Neo QLED 8K also packs in several premium, room-filling audio features; Object Tracking Sound (OTS) Pro’s dynamic sound corresponds to the movement of objects on screen, and SpaceFit Sound analyzes the installed TV’s physical environment and outputs immersive sound tailored specifically to your space.



Samsung’s 2021 Neo QLED 8K and 4K models offer smart features that expand the role of the TV and help consumers meet their changing needs when it comes to fitness, entertainment and the home office.



  • Samsung Health seamlessly transforms the home into a personal gym, and the new Smart Trainer feature tracks and analyzes posture in real time, just like a personal trainer. During and post-workout, Smart Trainer provides feedback on form, helps you count your reps, and estimates calories burned. With video and interactive training via Bixby-enabled voice control, Samsung Health Smart Trainer elevates and personalizes the home workout experience.
  • With two new exclusive features, Samsung is delivering the ultimate TV gaming experience. Super Ultrawide GameView gives gamers the option to play not only at the wide 21:9 aspect ratio, but even at the ultrawide 32:9 ratio. The wider field of view ensures gamers don’t miss a moment of the action. And Game Bar lets players quickly monitor and adjust critical aspects of play—whether that’s switching aspect ratios, checking input lag, or connecting a headset. Finally, FreeSync Premium Pro minimizes stuttering so players enjoy smooth picture quality throughout gameplay.
  • With Google Duo, consumers can use their phone to initiate a high-quality, high-speed video call that up to 32 people can join—no matter which operating system they’re using. With Google Duo app, you can make video calls directly through an optional USB-connected And with smart camera solution, the camera can follow your movements. It will automatically zoom in and out so you’re just the right size, always in focus.
  • PC on TV on Samsung devices allows consumers to connect a PC to the TV, enabling working and learning from home through the TV screen with a connected mouse, keyboard, and PC. Consumers can also directly access MS Office 365 through the TV’s web browser to create and edit documents. Simply install an Easy Connection app on your computer and log into your Samsung Account—and your TV will automatically connect to your PC, making working from the living room seamless.

I can’t stand this guy, but is this true?

Reddit people are running with the fact that in some countries it removed VRR.
It's been a upcoming feature all along and guess what?
The 2021 sets have to wait for it as well.
ALL of these tv brands have had issues with HDMI 2.1 features.

I believe it might come later than they hoped but it will come.

Sony has updated their televisions several times in the past and their consoles, my tv has dolby vision now and it didn't when I bought it, the PS4 got HDR as an add on through an update. If these sets aren't getting a promised update that's a bad look for Sony and they'll need a good explanation as to why but it's not really indicative of how they usually do business. If I bought a set thinking a promised feature was coming and it didn't I'd be pissed too. Some of these videos from youtubers who follow these things say HDMI 2.1 feature rollouts haven't been smooth for a lot of manufacturers so I think people should just wait and see.

Yup that's why we don't wanna listen to reddit trolls like those youtubers did.
Youtubers are by and large leaches who search forums for whatever that day's "concern" happens to be and then they make a video about it with the dramatic facial expressions and use the same tone of voice a vet will when they tell you that they have to put a pet to sleep. Very few of them actually have any real contacts at these companies, if they aren't at least sent review units they don't know much more than any of us, they get all of their info from the same places we do.
