The future is so close...AND OUTDATED LIKE HELL!!!

These sub 2 teraFLOP ultra low end GPU's have no long term potential at all. These Next-gen console don't even come close to my BOOSTED PC equipped with an HD 7990 6GB GDDR5 with an 8 core FX8350 cpu OC to 4.8GHz.

Good luck with your low end GARBAGE that will use a hell lot of trickery to make stuff fairly passable. Optimization can only go so far. Devs will hit a wall pretty quick since now they have simplified X86 hardware. No cell or powerpc to learn.

These next gen console have ultra weak tablet CPU's which is written GPU bottleneck all over it.

There's a reason why they look more like PC's. BECAUSE PC's ARE JUST BETTER.

Xbox One uses DDR3 as graphics memory. It was last used 5 years ago in the GTX 9000 & HD 4000 series on PC because this type of RAM wasn't fast enough for high res textures. Didn't meet next gen standards for PC gamers 5 YEARS AGO!!!

PS4 uses GDDR5 memory (OK), but with all the latency,k the CPU can only access 20GB/s compared to the 176GB/s for the GPU. 20GB/s RAM is comparable DDR2 ram clocked at 620MHz...10 YEAR OLD TECH PWAHAHAHAHAHA.

3 years from now, devs will be crying to Sony and MS to have another gen since technology moves much faster this time.

By 2016 Nvidia/AMD will have introduced 14nm GPU, using stacked RAM (over 16GB+ of GDDRX memory per GPU) and GDDR6 is just around the corner. (No speculation, this is based on their road map)

Shitty consoles will die out eventually. Static hardware is pathetic for the industry. MS and Sony lost billions on GEN3 can't wait to see them fail again.
