What does 10X computational power mean?

So we were talking about how the new xbox has roughly 10 times the CPU power of the old one? (Dev)

It means that they think they've got a PS4 in the sky.

Hey greenranger u got it wrong, you see with the Powah of the Clowd... the xbox one turns into an i7 3770k @5ghz and quad channell Gtx titans.. so Ms are giving us a 4 thousand dollar console for 500 GREAT VALUE

Cloud computing is retarded and impracticable and will be for 10+ more years, Nvidia who is pushing Nvidia grid strong themselves has already said streamed games are inferior quality to running it on the console/PC.

Cloud computing and streaming games isn't the same thing.

Cloud computing has been explained a thousand times over and you the fanboys just refuse to acknowledge it. Cloud computing is not dependent on Internet with high speeds the faster it gets the more it can do.

It's so funny how all these people will say cloud is bs but can't explain in any detail why?

Some people have no sense of humor.

That is because you are talking to an immature fangirl crowd that has little understanding for technology beyond marketing buzz words.

They constantly compare cloud computing with Gakai, which is not the same. Not even close beyond both being on the internet.

Just remember, Gakai is able to render, then stream HD video of your game to you at supposed almost lag free experience, but cloud computing cannot do anything for your games! /s

Why not study CPU power?

All this Cloud computing talk from Microsoft...i'll believe it when i see it. Remember this is the same people that said we could scan a skateboard with the Kinect & use it in game.....right now for me it is all BS.

As opposed to the people who told us we were going to get Toy Story level visuals because the emotion engine was so cutting edge(PS2)? Or how about the people who touted the cell processor as a supercomputer and power so many electronic devices, including making the PS3 so powerful that only a handful of games looked significantly better than the weaker, DVD driven 360. Devoting 4 years of shared research only to completely abandon the cell a generation later.

thats why you should only believe real hard numbers and actual software.

The 'toy story graphics' was a phrase from Microsoft, not Sony. Game journalist hyped the PS2 making false stories.



"One of the basic premises of the Xbox is to put the power in the hands of the artist," Blackley said, which is why Xbox developers "are achieving a level of visual detail you really get in 'Toy Story.'"

I can't argue about the Cell cause Ken Kutaragi was talking out of his ass. It was him who was running Sony at that time so i am not gonna defend Sony during that time cause they were what Microsoft is right now.....arrogant.

The "OH YEAH??? Well *they*..." comment when the comment that the responder is responding to has nothing to with the "they" party.

A sign of serious fan frustration.

That was around in 1999...you got me on it not being a direct quote though.

Those exclusives-God of War-Metal Gear-Uncharted-Heavy Rain-TloU
That's what I meant by the handful of games. There were other exclusives that didn't outshine 360 exclusives. So thanks for the long, pointless rant and I already conceded that to izumo.

Just as I point out now..Sony boasts so much about how much more powerful their machines are but only a few games ever show it. I've stated before on these forums that the PS4 isn't that much more powerful, if any, that the One. Mainly because Kojima has never let a system gimp his vision. Which is why Metal Gear4 never came to 360. But, Metal Gear 5 was shown at Microsofts conference, letting me know it's closer than the BS Sony and it's loyalist followers sit out. Proof???


From the man himself....

So, since izumo called you out on your first fallacy, I guess I can debunk your second.

See, it's a "handful" in relation to the total number of games released. A lot of this has to do with developers not wanting to invest time in making the PS3 version as good as it could have been. Most games in the 7th generation were designed with the limitations of the 360 in mind. Not just because of the DVD limitation, but also because of Microsoft's "We want parity or else" policy.

Now, if we were to compare exclusives, you'll find Sony's routinely outperformed Microsoft's.

You may cry "foul" at narrowing it down, but consider this: when you create a device, the experts on that device are likely the ones to be able to get the best out of it. Obviously, the experts on a console would be the developers who work exclusively with that hardware. That is to say: those who create exclusives. The average man may be able to do pretty good, but he's no match for a pro. That would be multiplat devs.

Now, it's already been established that PS3's exclusives looked better than the 360's. That's really all the convincing anyone should need.

izumo_lee let Kinect show you something.

edonus  +   671d ago
Forza 5, Titanfall, and Dead Rising 3 have devs that all have said they used the cloud in their games.

You could scan in anything you wanted to use in kinect and use it in a game they just never made the game. They made a tech demo in their fun labs that scanned and digitized the object.

You just want to stay blind.
izumo_lee  +   671d ago
Why show it to the gaming public in that sizzle reel that suggest that when you get the kinect you can do that? They never mentioned that it was just a tech demo that is the problem.

Those game you mentioned used the cloud for features. Microsoft is claiming that they can make the XBone into a more powerful console using it like increasing its technical capabilities. That is what i want to see done in public before i can believe it.

Look i am a Sony fan...we were lied too plain & simple in 2005 with Ken Kutaragi talking out of his ass. A lot of Playstation fans were fooled by the promises that Sony made back than. I hope for your sake that Microsoft can back up what they are promising, just be ready for disappointment if it does happen.
edonus  +   670d ago
Because the sizzle real was a promo and like most promos it shows visions and capabilities. Kinect development team kept refining kinect with its fun labs section. Kinect 360 was actually quite powerful it just that the core market didnt support it so devs only made games that had a better chance of selling.... casual, dance and fitness. This time they will walk it down slow and getthe core market use to it first.

The AI of a games is not a feature, but even if that was the case whatever it is its something the local console doesnt have to use processing power to make happen so it can use it somewhere else. Maxed out the cloud has the potential of 6terflops of proessing power, but that would depend on a very heavily over hauled internet infrastructure. But There is power it can use now could be anything from 3-6 gigaflpos right now to 1-2 teraflops in a yr or two. Its not that it cant increase the ONEs power its more of a question of when will it and by how much.

I think what sony supporters miss about MS and XBOXes is that MS shoots for the stars on there consoles.
