I can't wait to see the Gears 5 differences in person where I think it will be more noticeable.
I know the demo was only after 2 weeks of optimization, but I’m betting the final release will kick ass on your new set! What did you go with for size? I’m taking a hard look at the same one, but waiting for your review.

But your method of comparison shows it to be small. Minecraft on the otherhand is an obvious night and day difference.

Nobody is saying the Gears upgrades look bad, they don't, but if you have to zoom in 300% and specifically notice stuff, then it is negligable. The only one I really noticed was the overall GI.

Still, many months to XSX release. Who knows what it will look like then.
You dont have to zoom though. Maybe on a 1080p screen with YouTube compression. The problem is that it IS the small details where we will see the improvement. Those are the things that impress me nowadays.

They are good at faking. Now it's about making it more and more acurate. That extra layer that seats a scene more in reality.

You are right in that it's more immediately noticable in Minecraft, but because its base state is so primitive. We've sorta passed that threshold where games look clunky in general. I suspect pretty soon we will hit the developers ability threshold before the technological one.

Gears 5 was already one of the best looking games this gen to begin with, so it's hard to imagine a massive difference.
