I should do a proper blog about new console reveals but wanted to jot this down: nVidia almost certainly couldn't get a design win for 4K consoles but DX12_2 (Ultimate) kinda hands them leadership anyway.
MS, unifying Win10 & XSX feature level, have effectively said to AMD "build our RDNA2 variant as Turing but not from nVidia".
PCs had XSX feature level GPUs since 2018, exclusively from nVidia (& AMD are yet to respond).
Here's that blog post. Some thoughts on the publicly announced details of the next consoles. Should be reasonably accessible without removing the detail / reasoning behind comments.
