That is interesting. So know we have Luna running the Windows versions of the games, Stadia that requires a specific port to Linux and Game Pass that currently run from actual console boards.

I think Stadia runs on AMD GPUs whereas this uses 8TF Nvidia GPUs.

An interesting point I read...

"While the T4 is based on the same TU104 GPU that powers the GeForce RTX 2080 Super, a measure 70W TDP could mean a poor 4K experience relative to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X."

That would be correct. While there very few gaming benchmarks about the T4. It should theoretically be in the same league as a RTX 2070 - only a bit higher.

And that is most likely the reason why there will not be 4K on launch.

the only way amazon would get me to use their service is if it comes free with prime which it doesn't so i see no point
edit: also realized i don't have a fast enough connection to use it anyway. Sticking to game pass where i can download them onto my hard drive.
