Thanks for the feedback btw. So the curve makes a positive difference? Does it negatively impact your gaming at all?

I think it's a personal preference. For me, when I viewed the ks8500 and the ks8000 side-by-side (the ks8000 is the flat version), I found that the curve looks like it has more depth in the image, and I liked it so much more that I was willing to drop a couple hundo more on it. Has no effect on gaming. It (the 8000/8500) was rtings.com's winning pick for sets under 2500 dollars (mine is 65") last year.

The ks 8500 only adds a couple Milliseconds (as in 1 or 2) with HDR enabled where some sets can double the latency.

I love the curve. To me it looks much better while watching and it looks all future-y to boot! I guess some people don't like the curve, though. The good news is that the price for the TV has dropped quite a bit since I bought it.

If you sit front and center I think the curve is more impressive than flat. With that said viewing angles are hampered by it also. I probably would go flat for that reason alone.

Nah, no issues with viewing angle at all until you are so far to the side that you wouldn't sit there anyway. If anything, I'd say it's better, but the curve is more subtle than you think.

I have the curve (KS9800) and I love it. I would never buy flat again if given the choice. I do watch head-on 90% of the time but my couch off to the side I will sometimes sleep on it (thanks wife :txbmad: ) but watching at an angle 45 degrees off center and I don't notice any issues with that either. I do know this, Samsung does HDR something awesome and I have no issues with dark or distorted colors like some people complain about for their HDR games/movies.

I checked it out online and 65" is 1500 on Amazon. I've really liked the curved TVs in the store but wasn't sure they translated to games. Thanks for the feedback. I'll be tracking this one until Scorpio launches.

The spaces between realities!
I wonder if Microsoft is going to pursue the VR craze with the Scorpio. It will definitely have enough power under the hood to make it a viable experience.

Yes they are, but not just VR...AR as well.

I posted this rumor a couple days ago:

"The new Scorpio CPU rumor is eight core, eight thread, 3.2 GHz. Apparently the reason for these specs is to enable hi fidelity VR for Scorpio."

And another rumor:

PC games can be run through the UWP converter, and can then be played on X1, Scorpio. If a game has 4K assets, Scorpio will use them.

All rumor, although I posted something similar before. It would be a real megaton though if true...especially to announce all the games that can use this at E3. That would be an a huge list of 4K launch games for Scorpio.

So you are saying this is the CPU?
its got to be. Look at what have been leaked so far.

They have a recording system that can do 4k at 60fps. That is no small thing to do for gaming.

Again I can be wrong and most of the time I am, according to my wife lol.

There is very little doubt, at this point. We will get lots of options for VR. That is the essence of the Windows Mixed Reality (formerly Windows Holographic) platform. There will be multiple headsets to choose from, and there will be a $300 headset available at launch (as long as they have games ready). We know Fallout 4 and I can't see why RE7 wouldn't be ready, as well; so it sounds like maybe VR this year, MR next year. This is: part what was already announced, part speculation, and part common sense.

The current one is like 8 core, 4 threads, 1.6/8Ghz, right?

Xbox Scorpio
Performance patches for Fallout 4 and Skyrim in action
Author: Z0RN , March 14, 2017 at 7:43 am In News
Todd Howard announced that the Xbox One games Fallout 4 and Skyrim will be upgraded with a Scorpio patch.

Fallout 4 and Skyrim get a performance patch on the Xbox Scorpio. Afterwards, the games are possibly represented in 4K and also the latest textures packages from the PC should be processed on the Xbox Scorpio.

Asked if his games will be remembered forever, Todd Howard said, "You can watch an old movie, but it's not easy to play an old game. We just updated the update for the PS4 Pro. It is something we are used to from the PC. We can update the games and people continue to play it. The Xbox Scorpio is coming and we are updating Fallout 4 and Skyrim here as well. It is our hope that this thought of the consoles will go on. I love my game library and the possession makes me proud. No matter whether on the shelf or digital, it's my things. And I do not want to have the feeling that I could ever lose anything or it has no more benefit, except lying around there. Even if I do not play 99% of the games at all.

s***, like I need to replay those games again. Scorpio patches are going to be bad for the wallets of those of us who've been doing all our multiplats on PS4/Pro.
