It usually does on the evening of a next generation console release, all current gen gpus, except very high end enthusiast ones. wWill be obsolete with in a year for newer games

Nope. Its the CPU that will be the weak link on most PCs. BF4 beta is like running a PS2 emulator. killing CPU @ 100% usage and only using 30-50% GPU.

If you want equivalent graphical settings sure, but I imagine devs will still scale their games down to below next gen quality just like they often do even now.

I'm willing to bet the release is much different.

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Lets hope so because if not that means they are developed to fully take advantage of the 8 cores in the next gen consoles and our quads will be out of luck.

It's definitely CPU. Majority of "unoptimized" games that came out in 2008/2009 were thought to run horribly. In reality; the games ran fine with a faster quad. That was the time when people thought "dual core is king and that's all you need for gaming".

A years time probably will require a good hexa/octa core CPU. People will b**** about badly optimized games because of their older quads.

People b**** about optimization no matter their hardware if they don't max it at their desired framerate.

I do hope people start realizing that recommending an 8 core or at minimum 4 core plus hyperthreading is a good idea moving forward.

2014 is feeling like a good year for my total upgrade. I always thought it was foolish to upgrade right before the new consoles came out.

I'm not sure if any upgrades will be needed given the terrible specs of the consoles.

Certainly CPUs will not need to be upgraded because console CPUs are far weaker than even the lowest end gaming CPUs today.

I don't see graphical requirements going up much either because graphics cards we have today still have not been taken advantage of properly.

Finally, I don't see memory requirements going up until developers actually release 64-bit binaries, which will never happen. In 2004, there were 2 64-bit high profile games. Unreal Tournament 2004 and Farcry. Today there are none. Gaming technology seems to be going backwards, not forwards.

LOL Gaming CPU.

I think even a cheap i3 would beat the CPU's in the consoles.

Heck, in a year or two, tablet processors will be the CPU's in the consoles.
