can a high end PC compete with PS4 performance wise

Oh great, console guy wanting to get into PC gaming has predominantly sarcastic people outnumber the serious people.

Simple answer: $2000 PC > PS4 and it isn't close. $1000 PC will likely outperform PS4 numbers

damm so not even a 2000 pc can compete with ps4


I want to be sarcastic, I really do, but I'll give actual advice.

The price point is irrelevant, and is no indication of performance. Right now I would say a decent mid-range PC (i5 @ stock clock and GTX 560ti) would perform at least on par with the PS4. Three years down the line, what will be considered mid-range hardware will s*** on the PS4 in both price and performance.

And no, a mid-range PC is not $2000, more like 500-700 depending on who you ask.


so how would a 2000 pc do against a ps4



My PC when completed cost me 1600 roughly. I'm pretty sure if someone were to actually care about emulating a ps4 I could emulate at least 2 instances simultaneously.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

actually In today's prices, i can make a PC for 674$ "handpicked with PCParkPicker" that is a bit over the edge on the ps4, and if AMD's "Mantle" Api proves to be as good as they market it, the price of the pc would be put down about a 100$ so down to 574$

I can honestly say i can make this go even lower.. but that would cause heat issues or i'd have to go full AMD route "currently i'm using a intel CPU and AMD GPU"

of course, the ps4's unified RAM is something that can't be done on the PC until 2015 with new architecture for the CPU's

I don't know a lot about PC, started to get into it


can a 2000 dollar high end PC compete with PS4


A $2000 PC you build yourself would out-perform the PS5. A year old low-end PC outperforms a PS4.

Reading "1080p 60fps" hurts my eyes. You mean "1080i".

Mmm trolling...

A $2,000 PC would eat the PS4 alive and anyone who's bought a PC in the last couple years wouldn't need to buy or build a whole new computer, especially not for $2,000. A mid-high to high-end video card would be more than enough at a fraction of the cost. But it'll likely still cost around as much as a PS4 at least and it won't age as well as the PS4.

560TI isn't the best choice, granted it does beat the PS4's GPU in at least pixel fill rate but after overhead and closed platform focus is taken into account the 560TI is not going to be on par with the PS4 in terms of real world performance.

But I won't even say a three years, mid-range in two years for a similar price of the PS4 now will be obtainable and wipe the floor with what the PS4 can do. But then again in two or three years the PS4 will probably be down to $350 if not $300 and no one is going to build a $300 PC even then that'll crush the PS4.

My system that I posted pics of here a couple months ago has just been sitting around waiting for games to devour.

It sucks that gaming is driven by the consoles, hopefully this is the last generation of that trend.

PS4 may do better than PC at first, but give it a few years and PC will have the best, fastest and newest things available.
