The ps4 isn't just a little bit more powerful and it annoys me that Microsoft didn't aim a little higher in terms of power. Has there been any official explanation? because every article iv read simply states that Microsoft claims the difference is not significant, when in reality it obviously is. I'll still be getting an xbox simply because of the games but i wish i could have both the games and power.

It isn't very significant. Both consoles are considered mid range gaming PCs.

40-50% is fairly significant. the ps4 exclusives will look far better than anything on xbox one.

PS4's GPU has 1152 CUDA cores. Xbox One - 768.

PS4's GPU has is capable of 1840 GFLOPS. Xbox One's - 1230 GFLOPS.

PS4 has GDDR5 RAM at 5500 MHz. Xbox One - DDR3 at 2133 MHz.

PS4's system memory bandwith is 176.0 GB/s. Xbox One's - 68.3 GB/s.

Fairly significant. I love the xbox, but let nbe honest it will be far less powerful, especially in regards to exclusives

I think they just wanted the most reliable console they could reasonably assemble at a competitive price. I'd be amazed if the Xbox One wasn't significantly hardier than the PS4.

PS4 is probably around 40% more powerful than X1, but that's really not that huge of a difference.

Xbox was said to be ~200% more powerful than PS2. Plus Xbox had double the RAM and a more modern GPU architecture. (X1 and PS4 have the same amount of RAM and same GCN graphics architecture).

I agree that they probably wanted to make something that works and is reliable (especially after the whole rrod thing) but it not really cheaper. It would make sense if the xbox was the same price as the ps4 because it is less powerful but does come with kinect.

Don't they have no CUDA cores because they aren't Nvidia GPUs?
