    But are you using ray tracing too? My PC does 4K 60FPS too. I can’t play Metro Exodus or Quake II RTX in 4K with RT settings.

    Does your monitor or tv support 4k at 60hz? And using an HDMI 2.0 cable or display port cable that runs at 60hz too? HDMI 1.4 cables will run 4k but only at 30hz. And a lot of tvs wont do more than 30hz at 4k either unless its a recent one or a higher end one.

    Also check your output on the card when you set the resolution in windows, make sure its outputting at 60hz or 120hz/240hz if you have that kind of monitor or tv.. Everything needs to match.

    Quake 2 has the performance it does because it's entirely raytraced using full path tracing, they have to use an old game to tech demo that because a new one wouldn't even run at all at that level with current or near future hardware. Current AAA games with RT features are only using it for certain things and often just for better versions of existing techniques rather than full on implementations like in Q2.

    Metro has RT features. As far as other released games go, Battlefield 5 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider do as well and Control is the current cutting edge for AA/AAA titles.

    Personally i'm loving the fact that RT is bringing back at least some of the graphics arms race and we're getting games that you can't max out on existing hardware again, having development shackled to mediocre consoles with 7-8 year lifespans has sucked allot of the life out of tech side of gaming for the last 15-20 years.

    Estimations(based on PC’s) put this at around $600 dollars. Of course that’s just guess work.

    That seems possible.

    I honestly don't know if I should pay $600 at launch or wait a bit for a price drop. Same goes for PS5.

    Honestly sounds more like the consoles name is series x since they said that naming would allow them to add future consoles, Xbox is now a branding like Sony or Nintendo in this instance

    Need help.

    I’m trying to reinstall my physical copy of Rare Replay, and in my library the Rare Replay games show up with the Game Pass logo. I do have Game Pass, but this is a physical copy of Rare Replay that I own, and I’m worried that when my Game Pass expires in October, I might not be able to play my games without renewing the subscription. Can anyone please help me out? Thank you!

    As long as you use game pass you don’t need to use the disc. When it expires you then would have to use the disc.

    You'll be fine. Once your game pass is up you'll still be able to play them, you'll just need to insert the disc like any other game. It's just because you have game pass now that they're showing up under that.

    The Xbox 360 games on Rare Replay for some strange reason are different from the ones on Xbox Live Arcade (the difference is the rare replay logo at the top.) I don't know why. Install the versions apart of Rare Replay.
    But, even if the Game Pass expires the games won't go away. You need a disc to play it (but sense it's game pass you can play them digitally.)

    I found out that there is an update for Halo: MCC, it seems to only effect the multiplayer and enhancement.

    I don't play multiplayer and I don't care much of graphics boost so I can I still play the campaign/single player without the update?
