That's where you're wrong. Consoles do indeed have memory eaten up but their OS's at all times. Xbox and PS4 for example have a 3GB reservations and only have 5GB's available to devs for games. Also, if you have 10GB's eaten up by JUST your OS you have a problem. I have 7GB's used and I have a dozen + programs running in the background and chrome actively open with 4 tabs. If I have no programs open it's a lot less.16GB of GDDR6 shared graphics memory and they don't have an OS and other programs eating up 6-10GB at any given moment. Then the PS5 is supposedly using a fast SSD for virtual ram as well. I wonder how many games will have no load times on the PS5 and then when they go to port it over the the PC they expect everyone to have these super fast NVMEs. And depending on what Nvidia decides to do with graphics memory they could expect us to have between 16-20GB of graphics memory also.
