In other news the sky is blue lol.

Seriously the TC is a pony so I'm not surprised his friends are too, again what is the point of this topic


I am not a Pony. If Im a Pony then you are an Xboner!


Don't feed the troll, man.


Don't feed the Ponies.

Ponies are disgusting, they are like cancer.

Facts will be exposed on nov 22. There's no escape. Stay tuned.

What information is needed?

"Real life" performance. You know, the real deal.

It's a good thing specs are indicative of real life performance then isn't it? For example a Titan v 680, 290X v 7970. Which cards have higher specs? Which will perform better? Hint: the cards with the higher specs will perform better both theoretically and irl.

Yeah it's good. Same goes for CPU, memory bandwidth, additional processors etc. Specs are lovely

150MHz increase on a low power processor? Wow. That's like increasing a 3570k's clock by 50MHz. Totally going to double teh fraems brah. Small amount of high bandwidth memory for next gen, probably as a frame buffer. Fine for now? Is it really going to be enough? Depends. For example:

"Even if you donít use MSAA (MultiSample Anti-Aliasing) you already need around 16Mb just for a 1080p framebuffer (with double buffering)."


http://hdwarriors.com/general-impression-of-wii-u-edram-explained-by-shinen/

Single buffer is ~7.9MB, double is ~15.8MB. 2x MSAA is 31.6MB. It won't be able to do 4x MSAA, it's just not big enough.

http://beyond3d.com/showthread.php?p=1113344

back buffer + Z = 1040*600*2*(32/8 + 32/8) = 9984000 bytes = 9.984MB

(((1920*1080)/(1040*600))*9984000)/(1024*1024) = get to 1080p w/ 2x MSAA - obviously you're just finding the difference in resolution and multiplying everything out. That's obviously assuming 1080p is standard.

1600x900 = 22MB

Bandwidth itself, now that's a tricky thing. Sure, it sounds great. 32MB of 204GB/s eSRAM with 68GB/s of 8GB DDR3? Nice! But wait, we shall compare. PS4 has 8GB of 176GB/s GDDR5. You have two pieces of memory, one as a small capacity high bandwidth framebuffer with a large reserve for system, the other has a single large pool slightly lower bandwidth than the high bandwidth in the X1. Why did they go this route? Well, as we know PS3 was a pita, so now PS4 is very simple. Which sounds easier to use?

Food for thought. Xbox 360 has 10MB of eDRAM @ 256GB/s, 512MB GDDR3 @ 22GB/s. Now if we use some super duper new Xbox Bandwidth mathematical calculator technique, we get 272GB/s for X1, 278GB/s for 360. Sure, there's a lot more of it in the X1, but 360 has a lot of bandwidth.

Now for the GPU. Games will move on as we know. This isn't a machine only for now, it's probably not going to get replaced for ~7 years. Oblivion v Skyrim as examples. Yeah, they'll use the hardware better, but it's not like it's magic. I get the impression that people think it'll carry it to flawless 1080p for its life, but that's not really going to happen. The 360 had a pretty damn powerful GPU on release (240:16:8), first unified shader architecture too! Roughly equal to the 2900GT, that's roughly a 7870XT now (v ~7770 and 7850 in X1/PS4), so relatively the 360 was quite a bit more powerful on release. More powerful given its release. Benchmarks (look at the 7770, 7850 and in between the 7870 and 7950, which is roughly where the 360's GPU would be):

DDR3 v GDDR5 memory bandwidth performance affecting GPUs:

Processors? Like 768:48:16 v 1152:72:32? What about the 2v8 ACEs? Volatile bit for the PS4? L1/L2 bypass?

steam box will send the xbot's to the scrap yard and the ponys to the glue factory. VIVA LA COMPUTERLUTION! I'm joking by the way

I wonder whether Xbox One fans will buy a PS4 or a Steam Box once the Xbox One is discontinued ?

If you are using the terms "Sony Pony" or "Xbot" alongside expletives while you are legitimately pissed off at someone you are proudly stating to anyone listening that your intelligence reached it's peak before you finished 2nd grade.

Sad but true. Not only are there people in the world this dumb, but there are a lot of them.
