In a massive show over 5 hours long, Fred and Chase tackle just about every aspect of “next gen tech”.  The show starts off with demystifying all the hardware and buzz-word software before delving into the differences between the Xbox Series S/X and the Playstation 5.  This is a long one so bitrate is reduced for file size and we have time stamps for the important items.

13:11: Hard Drives (HDD vs SSD vs NVME)

53:54: HDMI (1.4 vs 2.0 vs 2.1)

01:05:24: Visual Tech – What it is and how it works (Resolution, Frame Rate, HDR, Ray Tracing)

01:51:25: Audio (Stereo, 5.1/7.1, Dolby Atmos)

2:08:00: PC

02:33:30: Xbox Series S/X

04:01:05: Playstation 5
