State Of The Game: AMD And NVIDIA Talk 4K Gaming And Why The PS4 And Xbox One Are A Downgrade

Forbes writes:

While the Xbox One and PS4 took a lion’s share of the limelight at E3, there was more to the event than the console launches and their Day One games lineups. While catching up with NVIDIA about SHIELD at E3 I also heard about some of their plans for PC gaming. Arch-rivals AMD also have plenty to say on that subject, and an AMD spokesperson took a few moments to fill me in on their perspective too. (AMD, NVIDIA, PC, PS4, Tech, Xbox One)

Nvidia.....you just keep coming for more......

I understand they missed out on a great next-gen opportunity and may of been able to get rid of their competitors if they had taken it but they all wanted money.Then they hack at MS, Sony and Nvidia and keep talking ish

Nvidia really need to stop this because IMO, the X1 and PS4 isn't a downgrade, infact it is an upgrade Nvidia but your SHEILD is a current gen or downdgrade thing.

Nvidia, you missed out on a million dollar buisness and you can't keep hacking at these companies, YOU were the one who made the bad choice, not THEM

" infact it is an upgrade Nvidia but your SHEILD is a current gen or downdgrade thing. "

It's a handheld...Why are you even comparing it to 2 BIGGER systems that need far more cooling support?

I'm pretty sure both Nvidia and AMD are working on next gen graphics cards which exceed the capabilities that of the xbox one and PS4.

The Nvidia spokesman is not even taking a jab at AMD. He is stating the obvious. Consoles are bump in performance. Meanwhile both companies continue developing new and better models which will always outperform the specs in a console.

On the bright side of things, consoles have one specification. Developers can optimize their code far more efficiently.

Most of the high end cards on pc from both companies already do that by a significant margin.

did you not read the article? the spokesperson for AMD/Nvidia said the same things

"You can do 4K gaming right now with the games that are out there now. So on the PC continues to lead and really define the leading edge of gaming. "

"With this next generation, at least what’s been released so far in terms of specs, it doesn’t look like they’re going to close the gap with PC this time.”AMD concurs. AMD’s spokesperson told me: “A lot more people have been taking a look at the PC and saying ‘Oh wait, I can get better graphics over here. "

You say that, but have u actualyl checked. I can build a better computer then ps4 right now for about $600. In fact newegg.com if you dont beleive me. See i back up my statements with facts. Not fanboy wishful thinking.

And obviously like the amd guy said himself... u can do a lot more with a computer other then gaming as well. Little more bang for your buck.

Regardless of it being $600, it's still more expensive. Console gaming is cost effective gaming, period. PCs will always have the edge because its upgradable.

Although $600 for a gaming PC is not too bad, but try running Metro Last light on max settings on a $600 PC, it can't be done. There are pros and cons to both sides.
Rubberlegs  +   829d ago
While you will pay more for a good PC build ($600 is very midrange), you end saving so much more in cost of games in the long if you go digital. You can get new released games for just about half the price and the price of them come down even faster compared console versions.
You don't have to worry about backwards compatible issues either no matter what hardware changes you do to your system.

Kleptic  +   829d ago

interesting...as i just finished building a pc, all parts from newegg, literally yesterday afternoon...finished price was just over $900 including a $120 IPS 24" monitor, windows 8, and a new wireless keyboard...I used a Fractal case i already had too by the way...the only truly performance oriented part that price range got me, was a 120gb samsung 840 SSD...

so for arguments sake, say you already have a monitor, peripherals, etc...I still went way over $600, and ended up well short of the new consoles... it'll play some games, but no 'next gen' stuff at 1080p...this setup would limp BF3 along at 30fps on high settings @ sub full HD, not something generally acceptable...

$600 will not get the power supply, the apu, or especially...the dedicated card you'd need to exceed the PS4 or even xbox one...let alone the upgrades to cooling required to go with it...I do have 16gb of 2133mhz ram, which helps tremendously with the Radeon HD equipped richland apu (over 1600mhz i mean)...but richland or ivy bridge, without a dedicated card, aren't close to the apu of the new consoles...these graphics solutions won't even max out games from 2011...

so just saying...I definitely could build a pc right now that would toast the new consoles, at least in most aspects...but you sure as shat can not do it for the phantom '$600' the 'go build your own pc' crowd loves to throw around...you're easily looking at $1000+ to match them right now, and you still won't have the same memory bandwidth of the ps4...

For 70% of games....Having a controller is an upgrade.

Mouse & Keyboard is great for games like Age of Empires, Total War, Sims, C&C, Starcraft, any FPS game and most strategy games, flying games.

But there are so many games that just wouldn't be fun with mouse and keyboard.

Graphics aren't everything.

I just had a new PC built and love it. Can't wait for Total War: Rome 2, but I still could never play half the games on my 3DS or PSP or Xbox 360 on my PC....it just wouldn't work out.

Differences are good. Gaming on my 3DS is different than console and PC...It's also different than PSP, another handheld.

PSP is different than PC and xbox360 and so on...

I love all their differences.

I don't want one device to play them all. That would be dumb generic and boring.

Krew_92  +   829d ago
You get used to it after a while. I've played Grand Theft Auto IV with mouse and keyboard, and I did well enough.

I know some games would handle like trash with mouse and keyboard, such as driving games where pressure sensitive triggers are almost a must.

I just hook up my PlayStation 3 controller though (with no extra charges i.e buying dongles and such), it's really that simple.
starchild  +   829d ago
Speak for yourself. I would love for one device to play all of my games. The only reason I buy consoles is to play the exclusives.

Of course I would rather play those games on my PC with better graphics and better framerates...and more importantly, in the same place as all my other games.

Imagine if we had to buy 8 different dvd and blu-ray players just to watch all of our favorite movies? It would suck. Yet that is exactly what we have to put up with in gaming. And you cheer it? Sad.

I cheer the amazing variety in games that we get these days, but I don't cheer the fragmented market we have to deal with.

In a way they are right tho the ps3 and xbone do have a crappy low end gpu.

**Edit** PC gaming in the long run is way more cost efficient. The games on pc are 30% cheaper and you don't have to pay to play online like you have to do with the ps4 and xbone. I might still get a ps4 but I know most of my gaming will be done on my gaming pc im going to build, I cant wait!!!

4k gaming... Yeah that is further off from mainstream than 1080p was when PS3/360 launched. Gonna be a few years until prices will be reasonable. It would be nuts to try and make console games supporting that resolution right now. 1080p with good AA and refined post processing effects is a fine place to be for the next 5 years or so.

Yeah we all know PC hardware is already ahead and will only get better. But my GPUs each cost as much as a PS4. Let alone the rest of the system. PS4 (and to a lesser extent XB1) give a damned good value to power on hardware. I'm mostly just glad new consoles will step up the baseline for developers so they'll move past designing around PS3/360's limitations.

that's not 4k. IT's actually more like 2k. PC hardware sales have been in the tank for quite some time. So all of this is kinda irrelevant. But not too long after ps3 and Xbox360 launched, true 1080p gaming was available on PC.
Nocando  +   829d ago
Yet they always come up with these low prices to build it. I shopped online at new egg and built a core i7 with 16 gig of ram, a one tb hd, one hd 7850 card, and a 24 inch monitor. $1300.00, and Dark Souls runs pretty crappy in 1080p. Been at this for awhile, so don't try feeding me this 600 dollar rig that plays it all crap.
Kleptic  +   829d ago

i just built a pc over the weekend too, all from parts sourced from new egg...for whatever reason, pc elitists throw around $600 like you get this end all be all of pc gaming with it...not even close...

I paid over $900, but didn't reuse anything but a simple 3 fan empty case i already had from work (which is only $40, so didn't save a ton anyway)...

with a Asus A85M-Pro MB, AMD richland apu, 16gb 2133 GDDR3, 120gb SSD, 1TB 7200rpm HDD, BD/DVD reader/writer (only $50) 450w PS, no additional fans other than the one preinstalled in the case, Asus 24" IPS monitor, and some random logi keyboard peripherals and stuff...

just under $1k before shipping...NO dedicated gfx card yet...and all of this, other than the SSD, is very budget minded stuff...on nearly every part i chose, there wasn't anything significantly cheaper..and if it was, it was completely obsolete...

so corrections need to be laced through this website...$600 will get you a PC...NOT a pc that can play video games...$1000 and you're starting to get somewhere, but you'll still need several hundred more before you're close to new consoles...and again, this is all 'building it yourself'...home pc builders will save hundreds on stupid crap that gets marked up by sites like Dell, etc...like blu ray players/burners, usb 3.0, total memory...things like that...but as soon as you start looking into hardware for playing video games, its just dollar signs left and right... no matter who the hell is building it...

Those 4k monitors are really expensive because they are not meant for the average user. They are used in things like medical imaging, photo studios etc. where quality is critical.

A 55" 4k tv can be had for about $5000 now and will likely be half that by the end of 2014.

By the time the next consoles come out 4k will be very comman so it will support 4k gaming. You can get a 55 inch 4k Sony TV right now for under $5,000 now. Next year we will see 4k TV's for under $2,000. The next generation of graphics cards will be out next year also that will have no problem doing 4k gaming on a single card so in 5 years GPU's that run great at 4k will be a mid grade gpu. That is what we will see in the PS5? and Xbox?.
CaulkSlap  +   829d ago
That's a completely illogical step. The main reason for going to 4k is that it is 3840x2160. Exactly twice the width and height, and 4 times the pixels. That makes scaling 1080p content so much easier. By the time the consoles after PS4/XB1 come out 4k will be the standard and graphics cards easily capable of rendering at that resolution.

A $400 pc is going to be pretty crappy even in 6 months. By the time you've got a decent case, power supply, cpu and case fans, mouse and keyboard you will already have spent over $200. That leaves $200 for a motherboard, cpu, memory, hard drive, graphics card and all the other little bits and pieces that are needed. And then you need an os.
NatureOfLogic  +   829d ago
@ hellvaguy, Ok, now I have wonder about the average IQ of my fellow PC gamers, because people are actually agreeing with your lie. You will not be able to build a PC from scratch to match PS4 specs in 6 months for $399, no matter where you shop or how you assemble. OK, lets say you did find a way to make a rig equivalent or slightly better to PS4 specs. Do you believe you would get better or equivalent performance from that PC?
Yardie  +   829d ago
Im assuming none of you have PCs/Macs, and use your console for everything... To have a similar experience to having a gaming PC you would have to have both a PS4/X1 AND a fast computer.

So that kind of price comparison between consoles and Gaming PCs doesn't really make that much sense if you ignore everything else PCs have to offer.

* That being said, a good graphics card can cost as much as a console, so you could have a non gaming yet fast PC + PS4 for the same price as a Gaming pc

I just want to play games. As long as the game looks and plays good then why would I need to spend so much initially to enjoy the games? And the vast majority of my friends are going to be either on the X1 or PS4. No one is denying the power of the PC but come on bragging about how expensive your GPU is isn't going to make console fans look at the possibilities of the PC.

I can't play games like TLOU/Uncharted on my pc rig, so how exactly is consoles a downgrade. If anything, it's better value for better experience. I love my gaming pc, but without my console, I would've missed out on some great games. If you only game on pc, you're missing the whole gaming experience. Paying a premium price to miss out on some great games. Gaming PCs are nothing more than overpriced consoles. You pay anywhere from $300-$1000 more just to have a little edge technically and graphically.
Mr Tretton  +   829d ago
Actually PCs aren't overpriced consoles...they're PCs. They do everything. I have a good, updated PC but I wouldn't even call it a 'gaming PC', because it's the least of what I do on it. It just so happens that I can run most games in the industry in greater quality along with everything else you can do on PC. Then there's mods, custom configs, emulators, etc.

Calling a PC an expensive console is nonsense, you should be ashamed. If someone said here you can have a PS3 with Uncharted (which I'm a fan of), or a PC, I'm choosing the PC like a smart person.

yea ur right crap s crap, thats why when you look at a game on console vs PC all you see is crap in comparison. Id rather play a non exclusive at much higher quality on PC than play a exclusive on console thats smeared and blured with jaggies all over the place

4k is of no concern to me

what concerns me is anti aliasing, framerate, draw distance, v-sync, high resolution textures, soft shadows, tessellation

all of which the pc will do FAR better than ps4 and xbox one will ever hope to achieve

in all ps4 and xbox one actual gameplay I have seen jaggies and low resolution textures, its still a huge jump up from ps3/360 but not anywhere near how far ahead pc is

yes there are some fake cgi trailers that look better like deep down and dark sorcerer, both of which aren't even games and were 100% fake, those are the only two things I have seen that even look next gen and they are completely fake

Higher resolutions removes the need for AA, which in the future will free up resources. AA has always been a resource hog.

There will still be the need for AA. That doesn't disappear with more pixels (but it certainly helps).

Yes , pc is more powerful then consoles but don't underestimate ps4 games. There are masterpieces in ps3 that pc haven't achieved . Look at the last of us , uncharted , MGS4 ..etc They made better games then the demos they showed in ps3 reveal. Those are not fake . There is already an article or rumor that says naughty dog is making a million polygon characters game .

If you bring a pc with ps3 specs you won't be able to run cod4 on it. That tells you that 8GB of ram in console is better then 8GB of ram in pc. Console power is more then you think .

People keep bashing Nvidia cause they think they are mad about the consoles deal. Might be true but what they are saying this time is true. Last gen was on par with a high end pc for about a year, next gen is mid range at best (because sony didn't want high price console+ losing money on each consoles) So yeah... It's true that on pc you can do 4k and play at playable settings on dual gpu setup with close to max settings. Kinda scary to think we'll be stuck for the next years with those week consoles

people need to realize nVidia doesnt just do stuff for gaming. they have their products in cars and tons of devices. hell the super computer in oakridge is built using 18,000 Nvidia GPUs THEY DONT NEED TO BE IN THE CONSOLE MARKET!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Console market is good for making developers produce killer titles. New consoles get announced and together with that a shitload of game titles. PC gamers should aknowledge this you know. You might be able to easily construct a pc that has more juice than the new gen of consoles. But in the end, the service a console delivers in combination with high quality games which are made specifically for that piece of hardware for such a price makes it a HELL of a lot more attractive for a lot of people compared to PC gaming

And NVIDIA keeps hating... it's really getting ridiculous. I think that NVIDIA is just envious. Think about that one...

Why Nvidia isnt admitting that NVIDIA SHIELD is a downgrade... srsly, Sony and MS didnt gave a crap to them this gen and now they are insulting them....
