I was playing around with GTA San Andreas before leaving for work this morning. Anybody else experience... NO LAG? LOL Seriously, on the older apple TV, GTA was unplayable. Now it seems more responsive. Anybody seeing the same?

That would be spectacular. This would make it possible to play all my iOS Games that support an MFI Controller on the TV.

Can anybody confirm that it's really without any lag?
I will get my device on monday :-(

I'm hoping this is the case as well. I wish I had more time to test this morning

Just tested this. Lag is much better than on Apple TV 3rd Generation.
But it's still not perfect but playable (for some kind of games).

Apple TV 3 had so much lag playing Vice City it was unplayable. Will test this out tonight using the ATV4.
GTA San Andreas is def playable on the new Apple TV. Theres either zero or VERY little lag, but its very playable

yeah purchased the GTA bundle this week and have been doing a few san andreas missions via airplay. No lag whatsoever. Using the nimbus is also a joy. Only issue is that my iPhone gets blazing hot which might not be good for it in the long term. Good thing I offload my iPhone every year for the newer model.
