[Rumor]Playstation 4 to outperform Xbox One in terms of gaming power
The Playstation 4 operates 50 percent faster than the Xbox One, according to anonymous game development sources.
The sources, allegedly game developers, say that Playstation 4 memory reads are up to 50 percent faster than Xbox One. Sources also say the Playstation 4's Arithmic Logic Unit is 50 percent faster. This allows Playstation 4 to run 30 frames per second in 1920x1080 resolution while Xbox One will run “20-something” FPS in 1600x900 resolution, according to sources.
Microsoft's recent attempt to close the gap with Sony involved upping the performance power for Xbox One. However, according to sources, overclocking Xbox One isn't making a significant difference
Xbox One, however, will be able to outperform Playstation 4 in other areas, sources say.
Though enticed to take advantage and make use of each console's unique abilities – Playstation 4's Dualshock 4 and touchpad, Microsoft's Kinect – developers allegedly care to use the features only if it enhances their products, according to sources.
The developer sources also said that most cross-platform titles will be nearly identical due to deadline restraints and poor graphics drivers. Another source said that uniqueness and top quality will likely come after developers get used to the new hardware.
If these rumors are true, do they change your perception of consoles or their launches?
Headline "PS4 faster then Xbox one".
Story "PS4 faster in places, Xbox in others, no difference in performance overall at any level.
Considering down the line both will be playing mostly the same games, I really don't care about this rumor.
If you want to get technical, each unique PC is it's own "console" because of the radically different hardware. And if your looking at processing power, they only start to outperform consoles in price ranges way above the console itself. Consoles can get away with relatively cheap prices and mid-tier hardware because the parts are dedicated to video processing and optimized for gaming in general.
A computer with the same specs doesn't perform the same because those parts aren't dedicated to video processing, and aren't optimized in general for purely gaming.
Well high-end PC's have always out-performed consoles, but you have to be filthy freaking rich to afford the parts and constant upgrades. That's why consoles are viable alternatives.
Lol, love it.
Considering Windows 8 was primarily developed as an OS for mobile devices and some laptops, it makes perfect sense. I hate how people get pissed off when a mobile OS doesn't perform well on their desktop....
If you actually cared to notice, plenty of ps4 demos ran on PC's as well, on Windows 7 none-the-less.
a big part to the sales also is the fact that Asia has completely ignored Microsoft (with Europe slightly favoring Sony), in North America Microsoft and Nintendo dominate. Also ps3 took 8 years to out sell the 360 so saying it "already outsold it".. as to why there has been a pick up in PS3 sales in the 8th and final year of the console.. *shrug* probably because Microsoft has seemed to have moved on passed the 360 (nothing good came out this year)
Yeah, the Xbox one will exceed at sucking your money out of your wallet.
i like how they used windows 7 instead of 8 for those xbone demo's xD
not really, snes was a better console than genesis, ps1 was better than saturn, ps2 was better than dreamcast and you have to take into account the first xbox came years later, well after the ps2 cemented itself as the console of choice, didnt matter if xbox or gamecube were better in specs, ps3 is better than 360 and has already outsold it worldwide, and now when we talk ps4 vs xbone, you have to take into account that not only is it better specs wise its also a hell of a lot cheaper, and yes, price does matter, we'll just have to wait and see what happens next
yes, if you can dish out the dough, because a computer with the same specs rarely does the same as a console
this isnt exactly a rumor
It would be so awesome if you could use ps3 controllers for ps4
Every PS4 Demo at E3 ran on a PS4. Every XboxOne Demo at E3 ran on a high end PC. That alone tells me all i need to know about Microsoft's confidence in their graphics. If the developers don't have confidence, then i most definitely don't. PS4 over XboxOne for me. Although of course i need to get the WiiU first.
PCs have always outpreformed consoles. You can make them however you want.
I want to see amazing AI and more advanced physics that could actually make the gameplay more engaging.
Do I need to bust out the episode of Extra Credits about specs.
"The developer sources also said that most cross-platform titles will be nearly identical" so that makes everything above kinda meh, lets talk again in a year or so to see what the exclusives have shown us.
