Just how powerful is the PS4 compared to modern high end PC's?

The PS4 is about on par with a mid-range gaming PC, perhaps a little less powerful than some mid-range systems(depending on the individual components).

The fact that most people get confused by/get in a tizzy over, is that the PS4 is more powerful than the majority of PC's(not gaming PC's). The PS4 is more powerful than the average PC, because the average PC is not a very powerful machine, especially for gaming. Heck, even on Steam, the most popular GPU is an integrated one(HD4000) and 3 of the top 4 are integrated(HD 2000/3000/4000), and the PS4 crushes those.

As for the time of PS4 holding up to PCs...Its already passed. It wasn't up to par with high end gaming rigs when it was announced. Of course, the difference there is that the PS4 costs $400 while the GPU alone cost nearly that much in most high-end rigs.

I heard it's more compared to 7790 or 7850. Around there.

Last I heard, its between the 7850 and the 7870(closer to the 7870 actually, IIRC).

Last you heard was wrong. There's never been any evidence to suggest it's actually closer to a 7870 than a 7850. If you completely ignore clockspeed, it's right between the two, but it clocks lower than a 7850, and is largely worse in general.

No it doesn't and you should feel bad for posting this.

My bad your right it crushes ultra PC's

It's low end, bf4 on ps4 is 900p with little AA.

Then there's that whole annoying argument about people saying "BUT DEVS CAN PROGRAM CLOSER TO DA METAL". I won't completely dismiss that the OS is more lightweight than Windows background operations, but considering its similar architecture to the PC processors, it will hardly be any difference in performance.

Which is a good side for developing on consoles, but AMD Mantle is been created for developers to have games bypassing Windows and DirectX, no?

Microsoft said no on AMD Mantle on the XBOX One because they still want devs to develop for Windows/DirectX, which is actually the only reason why they refused...

TC asks a question, is never seen again.

Clearly a serious topic, please continue with your discussions, they are completely original.
Pointing out your stupidity is not trolling

We should take away their metal boxes!

How good is the hardware, comparing it directly to PC hardware? Not too great.

How well do games run, considering that it is an optimized gaming machine? Probably what would be considered as "high" on PC games. For now.
