according to 9to5Mac According to the report, in the latest tvOS 14.5 beta, the words “120Hz” and “supports120Hz” appeared, which means that the next-generation AppleTV seems to support a 120Hz refresh rate. Although there is no direct evidence for the resolution, It should not make sense that it is not 4K. A higher update frequency can bring smoother video playback, but the current native 120Hz video is still very few, so it is expected that it will be the most beneficial to the game. This is consistent with the rumors that Apple’s new generation of Apple TV will use high-end A14X processors to bring “host-level” gaming performance. Perhaps it is Apple’s next step in the layout of Apple TV.
The current Apple TV 4K only supports 4K 60Hz, which is also the upper limit of the HDMI 2.0 interface. If the new generation of products really want to reach 4K 120Hz, it must be upgraded to the HDMI 2.1 standard simultaneously. Of course, consumers also have to purchase a TV that also supports 4K 120Hz.according to Bloomberg According to reports at the end of last year, the next generation of Apple TV is expected to be launched within this year.
