Whatever the final specs are, there will be little between them. The differentiating factor will be exclusives, Windows 8, Gaikai, PS+ and the like. Of course the most interesting aspect will be Blu-ray or no blu-ray and at which resolution?

Why are you linking to gaf?!?
But I agree there are a lot of rumors going 'round without either company making a public press releases.

Within the hour of my approving one rumor about "a" being more powerful than "b" I turn around and see this article saying "b" is more powerful than "a".

Man, I need to get paid for doing this stuff on N4G. :P

edit:

@deadfrag:

Did you even check out the link I posted before. Vg247 had the first pictures of VITA's beta dev kits.

Don't believe they are the beta dev kits for VITA. Well look at this,

LET THE RUMOURS COMMENCE.

i cant wait for the ps4 and the many playstation IPs. sony better have the more powerful console because the next gen console that is the more powerful will be catered to more. because sony is pushing for 4k resolution i believe itll be the most powerful console ever this year in order to render games in native 4k resolution. im also hoping to hear about some new blu ray disc thatll be over 200gbs capacity.

1.84 vs. 1.23... looks closer to 30% to me!
ABizzel1  +   675d ago
@AAACE5

LOL, good spin. But if you're coming up from the 1.23TF rumored in the Xbox 720 then it's a 50% increase.

Going down from PS4's 1.84TF to 1.23TF is how you got your 30% increase.

Marketing 101 aka Spin City :D

What matters most is if this is full console TF or GPU only TF.

In the case of the PS4 it's likely full console seeing how they're also "STRONGLY RUMORED" to be using the AMD A10, so the PS4 should be on par with HD 7950M (aka HD 7850), which isn't bad at all.

The Xbox 720 is likely the CPU only, but with that being said the CPU isn't going to do much to improve the overall TF unless it's a complete beastly CPU so at best they would tie with the PS4, but most likely still be behind if the rumors are true (currently those TF put it on par with a HD 7870M aka HD 7770GHz).

Also depends on the amount of RAM, clock speeds, memory, etc...
starchild  +   675d ago
I kind of hope this is true. Sony tends to have the better exclusives (and more of them), so it would be nice to be able to get those exclusives with the best graphics and also be able to play all of the multiplatform games on the same console.

If Sony makes a beefy enough console I might switch over to the PS4 as my main platform (over PC and Xbox 720).

For now I am taking this all with a grain of salt. We'll simply have to wait for more solid information.
TAURUS-555  +   675d ago

I guess they'll be running the same games, minus the exclusives, so the power won't change much.

in the case of these consoles, I find RAM more interesting as let's the console offer more integrated services(at least that's how I see it)
Godmars290  +   675d ago
I still find it hard to believe that MS might cripple themselves yet again hardware-wise with only upscaled DVDs where the industry is talking about 1TB+ Blu-ray discs. Though I expect the PS4's will only rate 100GB.
nukeitall  +   675d ago
and what might we need that massive space for on disc?

Most games that use a lot of space mostly use it for uncompressed audio and pre-rendered video. That is why most games rarely span more than one DVD, let alone two.

A lot of space just means more costly assets have to be made with very little difference to the user.

With next generation rolling around and hard drives being the standard, you would most likely just install the darn thing and not wear out your optical drive anyhow.

Godmars290  +   674d ago
@Flavor
How about not looking at only your own situation and preferences before commenting?

MS started stared this gen by saying the 360 could get by only on DVD, then had to make two major system revisions and temporarily tossed in an add on to compensate. And at the end of six years of thinking like that, of failing to anticipate their own much less consumer needs, they've been edged out of 2nd place worldwide.

I'm not saying that whatever they go with on disc will be a full repeat, but if they go in as narrow mindedly as they have twice before they could end up scrambling to compensate.
cannon8800  +   674d ago

nukeitall  +   675d ago
Whatever super power each console might have, this generation like many others have proven that power does not guarantee a great console.

I think the most flexible console with the best infrastructure for new features and with quality games will win more so than the number of games or the most hardware power.

The bottom line is, both consoles likely won't differ that much in power, because you can't make the cost difference too big and each dollar can only get you so much hardware so it comes down to "smart design"!

..and weather or not microsoft will make you pay for internet. playstation has had by far the better exclusives this gen with more still on their way. with gaikai and a strong gaming console under their belt i can't see where xbox is going. i don't think microsoft will promote windows8. they show very little support for pc and games for windows live is nothing short of a train wreck. microsoft seem to be obsessed with gimmicks like kinect and illumiroom. they have neglected the core gamers.
hazardman  +   675d ago
You might be right you might be wrong. One thing I do know is that noone on this forum knows of any facts whatsoever. I'm also a ps3 owner and one thing I can see sony doing is adding gakai to ps+ which means you will probably have to pay to use it. A lot the ps bots can disagree all they want playing online will stay free most other features will fall on the ps+ so the people always on this thread knocking xbl customers will feel like idiots when your paying for ps+ to enjoy certain features. For me xbl/ps+ are essential I don't mind paying at all to enjoy this hobby that has been part of my life since the age of 6. I'm 33 now, and will be gaming til my end of days!!

Well if this rumor is true I want be that happy. This is not powerful enough for next gen consoles. Now gamer rumor states: Xbox Next has 4.2 teraflops and PS4 has 3.2 teraflops which is some serious power. I hope the Now Gamer rumor is true and not this one.
scissor_runner  +   674d ago
So neither one can run unreal engine 4. All this talk power and they can't even run a one of the most powerful engines. I can truely see why the big pc developers are getting out of consoles now. Unreal needs 2.5. Tflops. So it's very possible we are looking at another gimped generation and this means they won't be far ahead of the wiiu power wise.

this isn't looking good for the fan boys that can only talk about power.
DeadlyFire  +   674d ago
Author of this article should pay more attention.

It states
PS4 - 3.2 Tflops
Xbox 720 - 4.2 Tflops

Then it also states Soc
For PS4 = 1.84 with 2 of them x2 = 3.68
Xbox 720 SoC is at 1.23 x3 = 3.69

Also states that the SoC numbers are old. Could easily be different now.

It also states X720 at 4.2 Tflops now with 3 SoC chips = 1.4 Tflops per SoC.

While Sony has 3.2 Tflops now with 2 SoCs = 1.6 Tflops for Sony SoC.

Simple solution for Sony is to add a third SoC to outmatch Xbox 720 equaling up to 4.8 Tflops. PS4 = breathtaking machine if so.

How the hell will they cool off these machines so I can play a game without hardware issues I wonder though.

Still take it with a bucket of salt. Some truth is in every myth, but we won't know final details until they are final. Its a fun guessing game though.

hmm... I have been thinking since 2011 that 4 Tflops was a goal of both companies with Sony's 4K talk. These are not likely final until after E3. Production could be delayed as final rush to the top happens. As Sony has stated before when they make something that will wow people then they will release it. If they stick to their word there should be no problem. I personally want Sony to release in Q1-Q2 2014 so they don't mess it up with rushed console red ring. Like apparently both are doing this time around if rumors holds true.

Ah they both are 3.2 Tflops.

PS4 = 3.xx Tflops
SOC 1 = 1.84 Tflops
SOC 2 = 1.2x

XB3 = 3.11 Tflops
SOC 1 = 650 Tflops
Dual SOC 2 = 2.4 Tflops

Plus CPU .1-.2 Tflops.

Mythical claim Xbox 720 can perform 4.2 Tflops. Nice touch to article.

I'm not finding much validity in this article... But I'll just point out 2 obvious things.

---"Both machines will supposedly have have the ability to read 100Gb Blu-ray discs."

Possibly... But MS will more than likely opt out of using BluRay

---"Durango is apparently based on the Radeon HD 8770 GPU."

Probably Not! It's been reported that Xbox 720 will be using a custom version 6670. AND when AMD releases the 8770 GPU, it will more than likely cost $400+.

VG247 mentions they've talked to developers at CES, they also were spot on about several things I've heard. This is the first I'm hearing about 100 GB discs.

VG247 had pictures of Vita before any one else, so I'm more inclined to believe them.

Edit: VG247 is under the impression that several media outlets are in possession of documents related to Durango from CES and are currently working on major leak stories.

Sony will likely support BDXL disks which have a capacity of up to 128GB. As far as I know that's the biggest standardized bluray format, though various companies have shown working drives at over 500GB.

BDXL along with the new codec will allow full length movies at 4k resolution on one disk.

They will also need at least a 6x drive for 4k so I expect it will likely be an 8x drive.

Well according to the source link and his posts.

AMD 9000, and AMD 10000 spec parts will be used and while both consoles look like 3.2 Tflops on paper. Xbox 720 will be able to perform at 4.2 Tflops with Xbox 720 using Power770 cores.

Only thing creditable is SoC is mentioned. 2-3 of them for PS4/XB3. Which makes sense in a way, but still kinda off if AMD 6670/7670 are utilized. If you take away that 650 Gigaflops and drop in AMD 6760 it equals 3.228 Tflops. Which even matches his own words with both equal to 3.2 Tflops on paper.

XB3 - 3.228 Tflops
SoC 1 - Unknown CPU + AMD 6670 - 768 Gigaflops. BC + Graphics assist on new generation.
SoC 2 = dual design - 1.23 Tflops(AMD 7770?) x 2 = 2.46 Tflops. Main Xbox 720 CPU/GPU Soc it appears with 4 CPU cores in each SoC.

PS4 - 3.228? Tflops How so?
SoC 1 - 1.840 Tflops
SoC 2 - 1.388? AMD 7770? or around that range.

Just a guess. I assume they both will be marginally close to each other.

The live journal posting also states both are at 3.2 Tflops, but Xbox 720 will be able to perform at 4.2 Tflops somehow. Like Sony won't be aiming to do the same type of things with all of their 4K talk.

3.2 Tflops sounds about right really. Not quite matching PC's max 4.3 Tflop GPUs, but not quite in the mid-low power spec space with some quality optimization it will go a long way.

Who cares if it is or isn't more powerful than the new xbox? I just want Sony to make sure when they release Killzone 4 that the multiplayer has more than 8 maps and alot more customization with the weapons, oh and more variety of weapons at launch, oh, and they fix motorstorm. Pacific Rift was the best in the series. Don't get me wrong, there was alot of good things about Motorstorm Apocalypse like driving down falling skyscrapers, helicopters and infrantry fireing rockets and bullets at you, but I miss the openness that Pacific Rift had. You could enjoy the scenery without having to worry about running into every little thing you can think of. I've never wrecked so much in a racing gaming in my life. Plus the story mode was freaking awful!!!! Then there was no new maps like they promised. If I remember correctly there was supposed to be free new maps.

PS1 & PS2 were the less powerful of the three and we all saw how well it did, even without the upperhand in graphics.

Feature wise, I'm only gaming on those machines. I prefer My PC to do everything else (media, stream, internet browsing, etc.)

The console with the most interesting exclusives (everyone's preferences are different) is going to be my console of choice. I think there's a reason why even to this day, PC gamers get a console or 2 in their homes. Maybe not most of them, but some of them does (like myself).
Withdreday  +   674d ago
"PS1 & PS2 were the less powerful of the three and we all saw how well it did, even without the upperhand in graphics. "

Sony had a massive advantage in PS1 with discs over cartridges and the PS2 was all brand recognition.

No way can Sony intentionaly release a less powerful console now with Microsoft sneaking up on them.

They don't have the auto-third party support they had in the PS1 and PS2 era with the development issues with the PS3 and it's initial tanking.

Putting out the best product for Sony next-gen is a must and I know the PS3 is more powerful than the Xbox on paper, but the PS4 needs to more powerful with multiplatform titles as well.

I'm tired of seeing 3 out of every 5 head to head going to the supposedly less powerful system. This is the ONLY way Sony will return to dominance.
Dlacy13g  +   675d ago
so what I have learned from this thread amounts to about what I suspected before the thread. And that is that as of right now we all "know" nothing about the final specs of both machines.

greenpowerz  +   675d ago
I wouldn't believe a word of this.

Remember most people in reality think the 720 will release in 2013 for sure. There will be people(haters) trying to tarnish the 720 reputation before it comes out by trying to paint it as weaker(like PS3 being claimed to be 4 times more powerful than the 360 before PS3 launched)

MSFT's success and the high price of the 360 at the end of the generation tells you MSFT will be going all out on capability due to what MSFT wants the 720 to be and do. It will not be the weaker of the two(Not wishful thinking but company vision needs say so)

MSFT's consoles are moving into the PC/tablet relm when it comes to multi tasking/apps

This is why I will stick with Sony for the next gen. Thanks Sony for not forsaking the core gamers during the transition to a future console generation. Thanks for keeping the PS2 going for so long. Thanks for the abundance of exclusives and AAA titles in 2012 and for those titles which names are already released for 2013.

Exception of a few, most of them are not shooters so they are irrelevant in the age of shooter in console gaming...they will be forgotten.

I dont mean to diss just stating the obvious. I own xbox360/ps3 and the only game i am excited about is Last of Us apart from that all other games i wouldnt play them if they were free.

Well Sony is glad they have 77 million other people who own ps3s then huh?

What and idiotic viewpoint. Rather sell your PS3 to someone who is a real gamer worthy of owning such a piece of brilliant technology.

Please stay away from the PS4 as it will be another wasted console.

Shhhh...xbox boyz dont like the truth!

Lot's of rumors, anyway even when the specs are official they don't mean much. Just look at how Sony bragged about the PS3 having amazing power and I quote "CPU twice as fast as the CPU in the Xbox 360" and "RSX gives movie quality games". What did this mean in real life performance, nothing, they're about on par performance wise. You can disagree all you want, google it, this is what Sony said at their E3 press conference.

Anyway, I'm still going for the PC/PS4 combination, I can't miss GT6 and a lot of the other Sony exclusives.

I'm thinking that combo as well (PC/PS4). Depending on how the PS4 turns out, I might just do PS4 stand alone.
Bordel_1900  +   674d ago
I already got I good PC a couple of weeks ago, and I do all my PC gaming in the living room on a 55 inch screen with my PS3 controller :D

Right now I'm playing Darks Souls on PC and I pre-ordered DMC5 on Steam.

That's a lot of flops!
OpenGL  +   675d ago
Are we seriously going back to the whole teraflop bullshit? Remember when the PS3 was supposed to be capable of 2TFLOPS of peak performance compared to the 360's 1TFLOP?

The numbers put out by Sony and Microsoft were wildly exaggerated last time around, and if they're following the numbers put out by AMD and Nvidia they're going to be inflated this time around as well, just slightly less.

Honestly what i want is a pairity in specs; i want more ram on the ps4.

MS has huge plans centering their O.S, Sony needs to prepare its platform for anything its close competitor decides to dish out.

I say this because to this day the ps3 cant xchat even though it could do everything else. Sony needs to avoid another scenario like this; so more is key.

IGN reported yesterday an HD 7670M and today this site says an HD 8770. Why is everybody presenting completely different rumors everyday? Doesn't all come from the same source? You know from NeoGaf report with the guy claiming to have an insider in AMD?
tee_bag242  +   674d ago
I agree, Too much competing information
There is no good reason for them to use a 7670m.
If any 7xxxM its likely a 7970m since that was released early to mid last year and is 3 time more powerful

lol @ everyone who lose time to speculate on stupid rumor. I would like to have a lot of free time, like you all.
Liquid_Ocelot  +   675d ago
You seem to have lots of time, I mean you're here telling us how stupid we are by wasting our time speculating on this stupid rumor.
Oh man, now that I realize it you're totally right. Thanks!

Things are just beginning and going to get much worse with rumors and what system is better than another. One may have a better CPU while the other GPU then arguments of which is better based on that. I'm so excited! <sarcasm

The thing is, no matter which is the most powerful, games development will be led by the weakest. The Ps3 outdoes the 360 in FLOPS, with a rather large margin. But most games look equal on both platforms.

However, with a more traditional and similar chip set in both new consoles, a gap in FLOPS should be more noticable.
a_bro  +   675d ago
somewhat disappointing from the PS4 side of things if true, would rather have more ram than just power.... next-gen is going to be about multi-tasking, then again, this is sony after all, so i trust that they can make a good system this time.
Kennytaur  +   674d ago
It's all GDDR5 though, much much faster than the DDR3 in the supposed NeXtbox. But you know, it's all rumours.
