Radeon 7790 or PS4 GPU?

Which one is better? I did a bunch of research before I got this card, and I remember reading that it was slightly better than the PS4's card. Now my friend is super insisting that mine isn't anywhere close to as strong as the PS4's... I'm sitting here looking it up and telling him on the phone, and he keeps saying "Uh yeah I don't know where you're looking but it's not nearly as strong"

So am I wrong? Which one is stronger?

Believe they compared the ps4 to a 7850. So yeah. You're close but not better.

The PS4 uses a 7870m gpu chip. Why people praise it is beyond me. The XBone uses a 7790 chip.

The PS4's GPU is a little bit above the HD 7850, which in turn is a fair bit better than the HD 7790

Console GPUs aren't 1:1 copies of their consumer counterparts, much like OEMs slightly differ from regular versions. In addition to that they also have to contend with a smaller box, no dedicated fan, and smaller heat pipes. Therefore the power draw are much smaller when compared to the real world GPU.

I am unfamiliar with the PS4's GPU performance, but it is said to be around entry and medium budget current day GPU. That is to say some parts are faster than its retail counterpart, others are smaller to compensate for the small space/power draw.
