Why did MS uses DDR3 ram?

Why not the more powerful DDR5 like Sony used is the PS4?

I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

IDK, but what PS4 fanboys and trolls are conveniently missing out is the fact that MS put some eSRAM in the XB1, but Sony didn't. Why don't you ask the PS4 board why Sony opted to use nothing in place of eSRAM?

I'll tell you if you can outline the technical difference between the two.

Because DDR3 is plenty fast, and will most definitely not be the bottleneck in this round of consoles. The DDR5 is overkill.

DDR3 delivers the best possible television experience.

You belong on the blizz D3 forums, it was built for people like you. Like how some barns are built specifically to contain filthy animals.

I also enjoy the PS4 (c) in all its ULTRA-1080p(TM) GLORY! You can really 'feel' the GDDR5 technology within the first application! Call now and receive this fabulous console at just 4 easy payments of $100!

Sony(c)(TM)(r) - Home of the teraflops! *wink*

Oh I get it, you are teasing Sony using Microsoft's marketing jargon. Quick, tell us all about the experiences on offer.

It's GDDR5, which is a version of DDR3, and has a faster bandwidth but is worse at multi tasking afaik
