Nvidia: PS4 GPU is more powerful than Xbox 720′s GPU

Nvidia has revealed that PS4′s GPU is 3x slower than Nvidia’s Titan.

For a better translation make sure to check out the alt source I added. (NVIDIA, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

ouch...greenpowerz and NeverEnding1989 won't like this

**at PS4′s GPU is 3x slower than Nvidia’s Titan.**

so ...can some one tell me what GPU ps4 is using ?!

EDIT : thanks ambrosia
Wow, ps4 will be a Beast

7850 - 7870 // GTX 660 - GTX 660Ti
I gotta laugh at nVidia for making such a "comparison".

how do you know?
ninjahunter  +   1051d ago
@Torchic Sony said that the PS4 could ALMOST pump out a whopping 2 teraflops of raw power. which is in the range of the above mentioned cards.
BitbyDeath  +   1051d ago
Kind of expected.

ugh cant wait for e3.The way nvidia had been acting lately I wouldnt be surprised if they are going based off rumors ( tho I doubt it )
Nvidia are so salty right now lol.
where was these comparisons when ps3 had your hardware?
whoyouwit04  +   1051d ago
How would Nvidia know if the 720 is weaker or not they had nothing to do with the 720 development process
papashango  +   1051d ago
Probably because they specialize in GPU hardware. You really think they don't have access to the specs being used?

ignorant if you think not.
Mariusmssj  +   1051d ago
Don't you think that at some point Microsoft approached Nvidia saying: "Could you make us a GPU for the next Xbox, we would like to have 'this' and 'this' and 'this' from a GPU"

Specs haven't been announced yet... How can anyone be mad about anything.

I'll call it right now. There will be no graphical difference between the xbxo3 and ps4.
Like this gen it will be slight differences in the default brightness and contrast.

And don't say exclusives will look better on this console or that console because exclusives have no comparison. Which is why they are exclusive! Not just too console but art style and gameplay.
Ezz2013  +   1051d ago
this is just plain wrong
are you saying UE3 is the same as SSM engine or ND engine or GG engine or RAGE engine or crytek engine etc ?!
it's not just bright or contrast
it's much more than that
you have textuers ,art style,lighting, shadows,AA etc to work on

brightness and contrast are the last thing dev's care about ..since you can always adjust them from your own TV

No one knows cause Sony left out that IMPORTANT information as it was too busy blinding Fanboys with 8 GB GDDR5.

But with a KNOWN 1.84 tflops of power it will be a Modified HD7770m or a HD7850m.

m = mobile meaning low wattage use like in LAPTOPS cause basically consoles use laptop parts because of the Watt caps they have.

Sony left this info out for a reason cause it would really let us know the EXACT limits of the PS4.

but as is the PS4 will produce High Graphic settings with post processing effects at 1080p 30 fps.

maybe second gen games will see 1080p 60 fps with new techniques.

But NO ULTRA and NO super duper graphics mods like the PC has

also when did Microsoft release the X720 specs? kinda like it hasn't!

Whoa there, the 1.84TFLOP matches a 7850-7870, not a 7850m.

The 7870m barely outputs 1TFLOP at 800MHz, the 7850m can't even make that.

The 7970m outputs just over 2TFLOPS at 850MHz.

The PS4s GPU is set for a 800MHz clock.

A company just wants to do multimedia and Kinect 2 so a man doesn't know what they would need the power for.
SlavisH2  +   1051d ago
didnt the 360 have a stronger gpu this gen and ps3 still put out better graphical games? So its not up to the gpu alone, right? Either way Im getting the titan lol.

P.S. I dont care about rumors they arent facts so blow it out your @$$. Just wait for offical specs.

It's expected through the same sources that leaked the PS4 specs that the CPU will be the same on both consoles and that the RAM will possibly be a bottleneck for gaming (but not for other OS features such as switching between multiple games at once)...
ginsunuva  +   1051d ago
That's because ps3 had the crazy cell processor.
But now both have pretty much the same cpu.
M-M  +   1051d ago
You're really going to shell out $1,000 for just one GPU?
Hercules189  +   1050d ago
Have you looked at gears 3 and judgement, forza 4 and halo 4 and crysis 2. These games look imo just as good as the ps4 games, I know im going to get a lot of disagrees bcus ur not allowed to say anything good about xbox on this site. microsoft is the devil and sony and all their devs are all kings
torchic  +   1051d ago
how does nVidia know all of this? nobody knows what GPU is packed in the upcoming consoles.

are people just looking at TFLOPS and assuming?
DeadlyFire  +   1050d ago
My friend Tflops are a scorecard of a GPU.

Sure on a console it can be as powerful as a raw PC GPU with optimization and platform specializing, but when someone has more digits their optimization will go about the same distance, but they are starting at a higher number so its not an assumption that it has more juice.
Max-Zorin  +   1051d ago
I wish N4G would stop putting so much faith in rumors and wait for official information.
thedon8982z  +   1051d ago
This Nvidia presentation seems like for the most part comparing spec for spec very accurant,However this seems like hardware that is designed for when cloud gaming becomes standard( maybe in about 6-8 years).I do believe that what they say about titan vs ps4 is true(however means nothing because with PS4 you can code to the metal) and xbox 720 if they dont delay there system will be true as well. I think microsoft really took the bait when they thought PS4 would only have 4 gigs of ram and it left them shit face when Sony doubled it because they designed there whole system around that fact with them P.O.S move engines.Now they are completly screwed and trying to figure out the best way forward,hence the reason why you dont here shit from them yet.

Very true indeed. BTW, just being curious, what are the Move engines on the new Xbox, like what's it's main use, what advantages & disadvantages it has?
thebigman  +   1051d ago
Taking what I understand from the rumors the engines allow simultaneous feed like the UI, overlays(think skype), and games to run simultaneously without taking up a signigficant amount of hardware power. Technologically it's an incredibly cool concept, but it reinforces the ideas that MS are going for a more all-inclusive console rather than a pure gaming machine(which isn't necessarily a bad thing).
Tito08  +   1050d ago
Oh ok, so it's more like a multi tasking feature without any compromises. I agree, sounds like a cool concept, good looking out with the info bro.

@ the disagrees- I have 2 disagrees for simply asking a question, this shows how sensitive people on here are, plus I'm not much of a tech guy, so whoever disagreed, take it easy, relax.

To put it in simple terms (I am not a tech expert, just well informed).They will attempt to keep bottlenecks from happening with bandwith because unlike PS4 which uses one main computer and a large pull of GDD5 ram,the next xbox using ddr3 which has lower latency but low bandwith so these so called move engines attempt to help with the low bandwith problem which having a game like fallout our grandtheft auto in 1080p might cause.It is an attempt to get the best of both worlds.However to me this looks like microsoft version of the cell chip and developers are going to have to learn how to monitor and stream shit constantly to prevent bottlenecks.In lamest terms it will be a PAIN IN THE ASS,I just hope PS4 does not suffer because of developers concerns with keeping games equal and I also hope this does not keep developers(of multiplatform games) from pushing PS4 to its limit. Also if the rumer is tru about them using 3 out of the 8 gigs of ram for the OS then this is really going to hurt them 2 to 3 years down the road as the next gen games start to mature.

@ thedon8982z-Oh ok, so that sounds to me like Microsoft is forcing developers into adding features that aren't necessary in a gaming environment. It looks like Microsoft is getting somewhat the turn of the arrogant company this time around, no wonder indie devs aren't getting along with them.

Microsoft got a big position in the industry, especially in the developer community, by having the easier to develop platform, now they might screw that up for the sake of the casual market by focusing on multi-media streaming.

I mean, there's nothing wrong with focusing more on that market, but they should of known by now where the console's roots & success originated from, gaming should be their first priority. And I hope as well Microsoft's f^&^d up policies on devs doesn't affect them on PS4 development as the console is looking very promising right now.

Time will tell, we will see the answers by E3. And thank you with the info bro, very appreciated.

It still slower than my current card but Sony devs as usual will bring the goods. Specs is just a part of the equation.
GamersRulz  +   1051d ago
small comparison: ( if all the rumors were true)

PS4CPU = x720 CPU

PS4GPU > x720 GPU

PS4RAM > x720 RAM

It's obvious that PS4 is gonna b***h slap xbox720 really hard.
PFFT  +   1051d ago
Not really BUT whatever.
We will see what happens.
Hercules189  +   1050d ago
Too bad the xbox 720 is gonna own the ps4s multiplayer again, bcus Sony fans dont care about multiplayer, and when they do they play cod.
M-M  +   1051d ago
It's probably a fan made picture, we all know Microsoft's next console will be called the XKinect.

wow. nvidia is starting to look salty and desperate now. the whole article really had nothing to do with the next Xbox and the ps4 because they gave nothing but their word to go off of. how can anyone go with that if they have nothing to do with the next Xbox? sorry but that's not gonna happen. they used that intro to promote one of their products, which was rather sad. maybe they should stop overpricing their products and start doing more to advance their hardware like and does.
Mariusmssj  +   1051d ago
Could be true, could be just false. We will know when M$ announce the 720. Till then there is no point to argue about something that "officially" does not exist

Guh! All these graphs and charts and supposed concrete factual "leaks" over which console wipes more ass for their dollar are utter bullshit until both systems are RELEASED.
Man, these articles are like having a bunch of scientologists hook you up to their little "testing machine" and it pumps out some bullshit graph where they proceed to tell you how scientology can bring the low points of said graph up. Ridiculous horseshit.
Has anything been relased? NOPE sure hasnt.
