See a lot of people on claiming the XONE X is the same league as a 1070 GPU, I'm not the most PC savvy guy, so why are they claiming this?

I run a 970 in a PC that was given to me, and I keep getting told it's better to buy the new XONEX as opposed to upgrading my PC.

Xox will perform roughly the same as your 970

Xox forgot to include a CPU and time shares its memory. It performs worse than a 970.

An RX 480 with no dedicated RAM and a tablet CPU.

Any desktop with a 480 (or a 970) will out perform the the XboneX on these merits alone.

People defend their consoles either out of ignorance or for reassurance

Real-life (non-FAQs) people can't buy a gaming PC that performs like a Scorpio for Scorpio money.

Most people can't build PCs, and those that can have rarely shown me the ability to build a Scorpio PC for Scorpio money without tricks like "pirate Windows" or "I found this component on EBay".

The Scorpio will be a lot better than a lot of PCs used out in the real non-Faqs world.

IMHO the worst thing about the Scorpio will be the lack of mouse/kb/desk standard hence it won't be for nerdcore games like isometric RPGs or RTS games, let alone game mods.

IMHO the best thing about the Scorpio will be how easily it portably connects to a TV to have a pretty okay PC quality to action games like Forza.


TL,DR: guys, if you really are the master race you shouldn't feel so threatened by the Scorpio. Topic reads like a cucktopic.

The gpu in the new xbox is good but the cpu is relatively weak and (might) cause bottlenecks

Is it powerful for a console? yes
Is it worth spending over something like a gtx 1080? no

The new xbone is targeted for the people who have never built a pc but still want something powerful, not a substitute for someone with pc experience

The 970 actually isnt that good. A slightly overclocked rx 470 beats it. Plus there is that whole vram scam dealio.

Don't forget the raw hardware comparisons will be affected by the fact console games, being made for a fixed system, can be optimised significantly more.

Bottlenecks don't matter because every experience is crafted specifically for the console so as to dodge the bottlenecks altogether. The most common res/fps pairings are:1080/30 and 900/60. The X1 runs a bit lower at 900/30 and 720/60. The X1X and PS4P generally runs 1440-1800/30 then upscaled to 4K.

Xox runs a non existing GPU config, comparable to an rx 580 with slight OC, particularly in memory.

And a terrible, super low end CPU.

It is not comparable to a GTX1070. Some people claimed that based on TF numbers but that does not translate to gaming performance. Specially when compsring different manufacturers.
