Well we shall see when independent bench tests are done....both consoles will be under a MICROscope, lol so we'll know exactly what the gap is. I'm betting as Ive said a million times now that specs wise neither will have a significant advantage....hell if games are anything to go by I'm already right with X1 at least looking like X1 devs are a bit ahead but of course its early, either way the games on both sides will continue to showcase what devs can accomplish with hardwork, money, vision, and of course talent.

You people are getting too excited.

What Penelo said was something like that were elements on X1 hardware that weren't fully understood, also saying that also on Ps4 there were elements that weren't fully comprehended.

He said that the 30% couldn't be entirely true because no one was counting with the software part, then he mention that they made Direct X 11(?).

The "truth" is about the integrity of the entire system.

Is Major Nelson getting hired by Sony in the next few months?

That's the only way his comment makes sense.

Just from the raw specifications, PS4 is definitely more powerful than the Xbone. There is no denying that. What it comes down to then is OS load and optimization. If he's saying that their OS is more optimized and therefore reduces PS4 advantage, that's something I can understand (extremely unlikely going by the three OS setup on Xbone). If he's saying that the Xbone is technically more powerful, it's not. It's just...not.
Eonjay  +   881d ago
For anyone out there who isn't going to read the actual article, Larry is trying to say that they will be able to get just as much out to the Xbox One as the PS4 due to good programming. He is wrong. Theoretically, there is a threshold of 1.31 TFLOPS of performance. Regardless of coding ability, they will never be able to get the same level of theoretical performance out of the Xbox One as a proper program engineered for the PS4.

I love how they try to undermine the raw power advandage the PS4 clearly has.
IMO they should focus on great games, that would benefit them more.

The PS4 GPU was originally about 50% more powerful than the Xbone, before the Xbone got clocked 53Mhz higher, which made it 40-something%.
EDIT: The PS4 still has MORE Stream Processors in the GPU,Compare it to engines: The PS4 still has more cylinders and HP, even though the Xbone got tuned a little bit and pushes out some extra HP.

The CPU has also been clocked higher, but then again; Sony has not offcially confirmed any clock speed.

Although Xbone is performing better with its CPU and GPU than before - which is a good thing - the bandwidth bottleneck with regards to the eSRAM has not been fully explained by Microsoft yet. Can both CPU and GPU access it? At the same time?

This is why they can't go around saying "we can't wait for the truth to be revealed" yada yada.. The truth is that the PS4 has - and will always have - a more powerful GPU with more Stream Processors, and a faster type of memory with higher bandwith than is availible in the Xbone with it's DDR3, eSRAM and Move-engines.

If not, then Microsoft should explain how they can surpass this.

EDIT 2: Another point is that while DirectX may be good and familiar, The PS4 will support everything DX 11.1 (11.2?) offers, but give developers more low level access to the hardware, meaning they can really take even more advantage of the HW without being limited by "rules" within DirectX.

Remember when the Cell in PS3 had the flops?

How did that turn out?

Besides, who cares? Fact of the matter is, consoles are behind PC. No let me rephrase that, consoles are WAY BEHIND PC!

You want power, go with PC. You want ease of use and convenience, then console. I have always been of the mind that content and platform is what makes me buy a console.

I loved the Wii, despite it's weak specs and I loved the Xbox 360 despite all the fangirls claim it was weaker than PS3. In the end it didn't matter, because what I cared about was being able to play the games I like and communicate with my friends efficiently with party/cross game chat.

I constantly wished for dedicated server, and I got that with Xbox One. Now bring the games and the features, and I'm happy!
dantesparda  +   881d ago
I dont know man, i used to think the the PS4 had a pretty good lead powerwise over the X1, but since MS has made all these upgrades (like upping the GPU and CPU clocks), i dont know anymore. While i still think that the PS4 is more powerful and Killzone's single player mode looks miles better than anything else on the next gen systems. The rest of the stuff i am not so sure of (well Infamous does look really good to), but everything else is to close/on par for me. Sony gotta come out and tell me they set their CPU clocks at something higher than 1.6Ghz and hopefully even upped their GPU clocks or show me through the games its a good clip more powerful, cuz right now its not looking as good for Sony for me as it once did. I mean seriously these CPU's can easily do 2.0-2.4GHz and the GPU can easily do 1000MHz (1GHz) and not to mention, have more Compute Units (20). Sorry fanboys but i just keep real. And no, i still would not get a X1 and am still getting a PS4. But i just want it to be as good as it can be

Original Xbox was more powerful than PS2 and yet most of us couldn't tell a difference.

PS3 was supposed to be more powerfull than Xbox 360...Looking at games of current gen, i can't see that to be true at all.

Galaxy S3 was more powerful than iPhone 4s yet it didn't perform so much better in real world performance, heck out youtube.

I am willing to bet my house that most of us console gamer's will not tell any difference between in multiplatform PS4 and Xbox One games. Both will be equal in graphics and capabilities. PS4's slightly better paper spec will mean nothing in realtime performance.

Withdreday  +   881d ago

You say that "Original Xbox was more powerful than PS2 and yet most of us couldn't tell a difference" when that's simply not true.

Take a look at the first Splinter Cell. It had to be severely scaled back just for it to run properly on PS2 and even the blind could tell the difference between the Xbox and PS2 versions of Splinter Cell.

And there were loads of other games that had to be scaled back graphically on the PS2 or couldn't even dream of running on PS2 as well(Morrowind for instance), so let's try not to be a revisionist here.

With the differences from the PS4 to Xbone hardware in terms of power, we could see scenarios just like that, especially when a game comes along that pushes the PS4 to it's limits.

So keep telling yourself it won't matter all you want, but when the difference is that big, you Will see the difference.

As of now, it really just looks like you're trying to justify an ill-advised pre-order.

Second GPU is BS. Won't happen.

But - and maybe that's where this comes from - the X1 has a couple of things where it has the edge:

30 GB/s non-cacheable bandwidth to/from DDR3 vs. 20GB/s
An additional DSP which is a signal processing monster.

But beyond that, there's not much more. The eSRAM won't make a dent. The rest of the system is too small, and the 200GB.s wishful thinking,

The DSP is usually used to do "wave form analysis" (or see it as a stream processor). It supposedly has some vector capabilities and is most likely used primarily for Kinect's signal processing - but if not, it might be used as an additional vector unit - and with it, theoretically - one could throw graphics tasks at it. But with that said, DSPs have no access to main RAM, they work on relative small buffers very fast. But none the less, there is a HW unit which can be "abused" to harness power.

The 30GB/s are relevant for CPU heavy code and will give the X1 an edge.

Now - this is nice and also sooo irrelevant, because, all things considered, the PS4 still has the pure compute advantage. MS missed the boat. CPU performance is not the biggest bottleneck these days, compute is - and gpu bandwith (and with it low latency draw calls and the number of such - which become NULL with a a proper shared memory setup).

Reso Gun's developer stated this game runs 1080@60fps by using mostly GPU features only - most of the features run on the GPU and this includes heavy laden physics calculations. So much, that only 50% cpu is needed.

I can only agree with this. A 8 core (or even 6 simple cores) are a major step up from current gens. If not used with graphics or physics - the cpu cores are faster than anything on current consoles - fast enough for sophisticated AI and game logic.

X1 will only have an advantage - if at all - if those extra "chips" can be used for those "extra" calculations. And even then, most if not all of that could be done by the PS4's GPU - with it's 500GF compute advantage which will easily run those tasks (incl. 3D audio processing and physics). I rather think, if the X1 can match the PS4 it must use those extra "processors", otherwise the lead of the PS4 will be pretty obvious.

CPU heavy straight PCs ports might fair quite well on the "faster" cpu. Maybe MS will try to spin this here again. I doubt this will be the norm over time, though.

Very funny comment.

I had to do research to found out why so many xbox fans are throwing this theory out there. For the life I couldn't figure it out, but then I think I found something that may caused them to think this way. The main reason is because they are basing the theory on the dGPU or discrete GPU. that is all fine and dandy but I think most people are unaware what the dGPU is actually for. Grant it can process graphics and apply some theory but it is not as all powerful as some make it to be. The dGPU in most computers control the displayed graphics and does allow the CPU or GPU to access it if needed. This chip doesn't enhance too much in theory only gives help when needed or so; so the main GPU does not have to bare the hassle. Now out of that if MS is actually hiding something, then so be it, but still, wouldn't you think they would have already showed this card to prove they had the upper hand. I mean seriously, all we know Sony might reveal the same stucture or something similar.

It really does not matter at all. The fact is that Sony First Party Studios completely outclass Microsoft First Party Studious in every respect, and specifically when it comes to graphical output.

If PS3 First Party Games vs Microsoft First Party Games are anything to go by, then PS4 will completely dominate XBone when it comes to First Party games, and specifically graphics.

When it comes to third party titles, then it gets a bit screwed up, because exclusive content and such are bought and sold, and third party devs (historically) will develop for the lowest common denominator, even if one system is more powerful than the other.

My point is not about personal preference in regard to a particular type of game. My point is that when you compare Sony first party games with Microsoft first party games in terms of quality (not genre or style); Sony first party studios always produce better games - qualitatively.

Ergo, if we go by history, Sony first party studios will produce better quality games as opposed to Microsoft first party studios; and this is regardless of the power difference between the consoles.

Gamer1982  +   881d ago
thanks to multiplatform devs trying to make the same game on both consoles I doubt we will see the difference until some dev really doesn't care about parity like Squre-Enix showed last generation with FF13 when we saw that PS3 was more powerful than 360. The differnce back then was to get the power out of PS3 you gotta develop for years and S-E does that most devs don't which is why 360 always looked slightly better in comparison videos. It was simply easier to develop for.
Gamer1982  +   881d ago
Why does MS care if the PS4 is more powerful anyway? Since when did they start caring about games again? Games are secondary to MS its all about the TV..

The graphics co-processors perform the tasks that bog down gpus freeing up the graphics card to do what it does best show realism

Here's a list of the things Crytek have in Ryse

Tessellated water
Best bokeh
Real time caustics
Heavy geometry based grass rendering with visibility over 100m
Great shadow rendering with penumbra
Very good Lod transitions
Pom and tessellation
Real-time reflections on everything
Soft collision particles, lit and shadow particles
Wind physics
Volumetric fog shadows
Real time GI

No wonder it looks so incredible : )

@ UnHoly_One

1) I doubt you've even played Killzone as your description of the PSN and PS+ in other threads has been ridiculously skewed and incorrect, to the degree that it's as though you've only heard your info through other ridiculous fanboy statements. KZ2 - one of the best online shooters ever conceived. Shame KZ3 couldn't match it. Mercenary's multiplayer has been getting some fantastic feedback, and Shadow Fall looks fantastic in both categories.

2) IGN have played it and have confirmed it's not fun, or any good - in fact, boring, clunky, broken. I've seen plenty of footage and can come to the same conclusion myself without needing to play it.

Not that Ryse looks bad, it looks nice but not amazing no matter how many effects Crytek list that are in the game. It's a fact that the PS4 is more powerful than the X1, more so than the PS3 was to the 360, so expect Sony's exclusives to look noticeably better.

joefrost00  +   881d ago
Please stop comparing ryse with God of War
They are not even close to the same type of game
Gow is gow and ryse is more grounded in reality
Its more like shadow of rome than gow

Let me breakdown the logic behind the comparison between gow amd ryse
It started with sony fans who saw and basically went on the defensive from day one
The quick time events trying to be like gow and the game play nothing like gow
But sony fans love of quicktime games like heavy rain I thought they would love it but I understand people's complaint about it cause its based in reality days where you have insane combos
Its like the criticism bushido blade got when it came out
It was based in reality so people called it boring
Wheather ryse is going to be a good game I dont know but its funny how I hear ps4 fans bashing MS games way more than talking about there games
And you know when they do talk about there games its only two they willing to talk about KZ and infamous
Which is funny cause they havent even let anyone play infamous yet
Like myself im getting a ps4 at launch but I can't think of one game I have to have for it but im sure there coming
joefrost00  +   881d ago
Dude let it go sony fans are only going to see what they want
Despite ryse being the only console game at the e3 and gamescon that got nominated for best overall graphics not just console but to them KZ looks better than ryse and driveclub looks better than forza
After seeing all of them in person the most technically impressive game I saw was DR3 with the open world qnd all the zombies with the real time damage and detailed insides also not one zombie looked the same I major in programming so seeing things like this gets me excited

Ryse doesn't look bad graphics wise, it just looks like a shitty game. I am buying both systems and the only way I would get Ryse is if it was 20 bucks on Ebay or something, and I will probably avoid it altogether after the 6.5 out of 10 review it's going to get comes out.

First off @ joe, it needed to be said, and thank you. One of my coworkers (well manager) went to the gamestop conference and he was a firm believer in the ps4. He used to be xbox360 all the way, then after this switched to the ps4. Now after the conference he is back to xbox one. He said Titan Fall was the best game there out of all of them and that no ps4 game came close to it. It's not the raw power of the console. Raw power in PC's means everything, but the coding and software in consoles is what makes the difference (and microsoft is a software company... See where that is going?)

Again @ joe, everyone loves Uncharted because seems to be like a movie, so a lot of people should like it according to your logic.

Ryse runs at a variable 30fps, and the variable parts are sub-30.

It's environments looks bland and awful, and you can tell that they are using trickery such as repeating NPCs shown here:

Then you look at the close ups to see it's not all it's cracked up to be:

inFamous: Second Son is an open-world (!!!!) game that has masterfully fluid animations, gorgeously detailed environments, dynamic weather, and destructible environments, and runs at a variable 30/60 fps, but mostly 60 fps. It outclasses Ryse in raw visuals, performance, gameplay - EVERY category.

Then there's Deep Down's panta rhei engine:

1nsomniac  +   881d ago
There is no AMD NDA the product has already been disclosed within the hardware specs therefore it's under Microsoft authority now.

AMD cant disclose information on Microsoft because Microsoft bought the rights to use it then customise it (so Microsoft is paying for the service of using the product, not the other way around).

The same as buying say an iPad, Apple can tell you what chip it runs on but the chip manufacturer cant disclose the iPad specs.

"AMD will not comment on the Microsoft Xbox One and Sony PS4 memory architectures and will not speak for Microsoft, Sony or other AMD customers."

So who is the NDA for?

why would Microsoft be under an NDA for a chipset that Amd WOULD NOT TALK ABOUT ANYWAY?

AMD's stance is you have to ask Microsoft!

Unless Microsoft has an NDA on themselves! than if that is the case why wait? it makes no sense what's so ever to hold on to this info about such hardware chip being inside the xboxone, unless you want to build up your 1st party offering's to surpass the 3rd party software offering's off the bat to get a leg up on them.
Irishguy95  +   880d ago
joeorc, do you know what an NDA is? AMD don't want ANYONE talking about it until AMD is ready to talk about it. You should know what an NDA is from gaming. When a certain date is decided before games revealed or reviews are released etc. Microsoft are not legally allowed to talk about it because Amd are going to 'reveal' it at some point. This is where the entire concept of 'leaks' come from.

A non disclosure agreement. Google it.

I personally don't believe the X1 will have this second GPU but there is certainly a valid reason to hide it. If it did exist AMD would be acting like it didn't exist until they wanted to reveal it.

To all the above:

All three of you are incorrect. Both consoles have old, young, mature, immature and techy gamers. To say one has more than the other is just illogical. There is no aspect about one console which causes more immature kids than the other.

It is outright ignorant to say one console community is more mature than the other. Unless you went and listened to each and every individual of both consoles, you will never know which is more mature. And even if it's humanly possible to do, I believe both sides will have equal portions of said gamers.

I'm just saying, the PS3, was more powerful than the 360, but it took six years before it started getting better looking games.

There's truth to the idea that balance is key when it comes to hardware design. The differences between the two consoles will create different gaming experiences, which is good for gaming. But from a shear graphical standpoint, i don't see anything that would suggest PlayStation games will look significantly better than xbox games. Certainly not at launch, where xbox titles are actually superior.
HaMM4R  +   881d ago
I don't think PS4 will have the same issue as xbox 360 and PS3. PS4 is built on an x86. The reason it took so long for games to start looking good was because the cell processor was so complicated it took a while to tap into the full potential. PS4 will not have that problem. Although I do agree that games will look very similar graphically (for the first 5-6 years anyway then the PS4's extra power might just push it over the xbox)

I'm don't think developers will have as much trouble tapping into the ps4's power. But it's very telling that the PS4's launch lineup is graphically inferior to the 360's

But that's not even my main point. Is the difference in graphical quality going to have a noticeable impact on the gaming experience? I don't think so... It's the other aspects of each console's abilities that will make the difference.
HaMM4R  +   881d ago
Gameplay always comes first. If you mean PS4's lineup compared to the ones I would disagree. Killzone looks beautiful as does infamous. Ryse looks beautiful as does forza (for the most part.) I think they are both fairly even as far a graphics are concerned. If anything PS4 looks better (IMO) but in the end it doesn't come down to graphics it comes down to gameplay.
mhunterjr  +   881d ago
I'm talking about the day one launch line up. Killzone looks good, but Ryze looks better. Forza, Dead Rising 3 are no douche slouches either, especially considering the number of characters on screen in DR3.

Infamous is looking great too, but let's compare it to what Microsoft has coming out around that time.

If we're talking about gameplay reigning supreme, from what I see MS has the better exclusives on day one in that regard as well. Killzone isn't exactly known for its awesome gameplay, but I look forward to giving this one a shot.

I'm not saying ps4 won't surpass in 2014, but why not wait until a then if that's when the first experiences that really showcase the PS4's strengths will come. You might get an even better deal...

Exclusives is a different conversation. Because in house devs are taking advantage of the consoles more personal specs. Like the Cell processor in PS3 and online infrastructure on Xbox.

i find people like to twist things around..

Whenever this "we created directX" comment gets used, openGL somehow makes that statement untrue?

Unless Sony created openGL (they didnt), then that point means nothing...

when it comes to software.. MS is one of the kings.. the reason Windows has no real competition is because nobody can match it...

now... lets be honest here.. the dual GPU rumor is like 5% likely at this point.. but there is more to the end result then a single component... say the GPU sony is using is 30% more powerful, why cant people understand that difference can be made up elsewhere in the system?

the reason people keep using the car analogy is because its perfect... a 500hp car can be outperformed by a 400hp car. why a 8psi turbo car can lose to a 4psi blown car..

What is the mystery part of the system where GPU performance is made up?
n4rc  +   881d ago
If you have to ask me that, then I'm not going to bother..

Try Google sometime and ya know, actually do some research.

Same goes for the incoherent nonsense... If I can barely understand you, I'm not explaining my point again

Stop smoking the green stuff.

Windows has no competition because of MONEY. MONOPOLY.

Even Gabe Newell stated GL is faster then DX.

As for people waffling on about RYSE.

It uses Cryengine 3

It's a multiplat game that could run on any system.
n4rc  +   881d ago
i'll go line by line..

they do have competition.. they just cant do what windows does... no driver support etc.. android is coming up etc.. not having the money to build what they have isnt the fault of MS

so what? MS created DX, sony didnt make openGL.. so how exactly is that statement untrue?

i never mentioned ryse.. gameplay is meh, but looks fantasitc

yeah.. and? so do alot of next gen games.

again... and? multiplats are far more impressive then exclusives imo.. and they release on multiple platforms rather then focusing on one

"i find people like to twist things around.. "

yupper's they sure do



first look at this:

Penello claims

“there’s no way” they’re giving up a 30% graphical advantage to the PS4, and even adds that it’s been “the same with every generation” with Sony “claiming more power” but in the end, their “games looked the same or better.”

Now look at this head line:

Major Nelson: “Looking forward” as the “truth comes out” regarding PS4 being 30% superior vs Xbox One

and right at the start of this :

Following Albert Penello’s recent comments regarding Sony exaggerating about the apparent 30% power advantage that the PS4 has over the Xbox One, Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb has added his thoughts to the mix.

notice this line:

"regarding Sony exaggerating about the apparent 30% power advantage that the PS4 has over the Xbox One"

So somehow some way Sony is the one who stated 30% more power over the xboxone? no that was Microsoft who stated 30%, all Mark Cerny stated was that the PS4 is the most powerful game console built to date.

So by Microsoft's own words, that They are not giving up 30% power advantage to the PS4. AND IT WAS NOW BEING QUOTED AS SONY is SAYING ITS SO; THAN IT MUST BE THAT SONY HAS 30% MORE POWER. but Major Nelson would like to see if its true or now. Hey Remember people Microsoft was Quoed to saying 30% more and its being Quoted in saying Sony states as such..

Lol does this douche really think that Sony is the one who said 30% difference. The only thing Sony has said is that the have the most powerful console ever. Which is true. Sony doesn't need to get defensive over the specs like Microsoft.
MasterCornholio  +   881d ago
Wow I never noticed that. I know that Sony made the claim that their console was more powerful than Microsoft's Xbox One but they never stated the amount. The Microsoft makes the claim that the PS4 being 30% more powerful isn't true. How did they know about the 30% if Sony never said it?

The plot thickens.

If there is one things that's evident is that one of the consoles is more powerful than the other. Should be fun to see the comparisons between multi plats and exclusives.

I'm sure that Microsoft saw the 30 or 40% figure from any one of the millions of posts on various internet forums. If you don't think they read N4G, GAF, B3D, and others, you should.
EXVirtual  +   881d ago
Here we go. Listen, the volcano GPU structure isn't happening. I don't know what Nelson mean's but a part of me thinks it's just damage control. If there is something to it, it's probably another upgrade. I don't think it'll outperform the PS4. No chance. It'd be more than $500.

The PS4 will probably start showing the difference in 2-3 years. And there is another truth we don't know many GB of RAM the PS4 uses.

I don't think they would of kept quiet for this long if the XB1 was more powerful than the PS4.
If the XB1 was better they would have constantly stated the fact every time that they had a chance too.

"To be fair, I bet you were tired of this PR here"

and yet both Nintendo and Microsoft are not in dispute of such a claim! by Mark Cerny; why is that?

maybe because such a guy like Mark Cerny knows a thing or two about freaking hardware design's


The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) has announced that Mark Cerny will be the 13th inductee into the Academy's Hall of Fame, which is bestowed upon individuals who've contributed a significant advancement within the industry while demonstrating proven success and leadership.

and maybe because he is one of 17 people in the whole d@mn world that has this award!

Sony has the specs to back up its claims.

Microsoft is the one being defensive here, they're the one who have to provide the proof.

Microsoft hasn't stated the Xbox One is the most powerful console, at least not in an official way. They have never said "Our console outperforms the PS4" in any way.

So Sony's statements have gone unapposed because they're true. I haven't heard anyone say otherwise.

Same Major Nelson that said DRM can't be switched off. I'm sorry but Major Nelson is nothing but a cheerleader that doesn't know shit. On another note there are a couple things about the Ps4's specs that haven't been confirmed officially so I wouldn't talk till those announcements are made.

I know the X1 has some secrets about it that we don't understand. It's amazing how people try to act like they're professional tech engineers and programmers. They act like the can determine the architecture and benchwork clockspeeds or performance by seeing specs on paper. It's obvious that MS is touting a little bit more lately and can barely keep their mouths shut about what the X1 can really do. They are ready to blab it all out but it's still not the right time to reveal the "truth" about the X1 cause it would lead Sony to come up with a counter plan like maybe give something away for free. It just doesn't make sense that a $250 billion company would let a $20 billion outperformed it by 30%-50%. Come on MS spent $700 million on dedicated servers, $100 million on the controller development, and $1 Billion for exclusive games just for the first year. You telling me that they're gonna come up short with the X1 performance? I'm hoping that the leaked info/rumors of the X1 having an additional 2GB GDDR5 are true. But I don't know what tricks they have up their sleeves.

You're right "secrets" are more reliable than system specs. I am getting both systems so I can play all exclusives, but it's pretty obvious that the PS4 is the more powerful of the 2.

I don't know why people seem to think graphics are the only thing that comes from being more powerful. Likely there won't be a huge different in graphics in games, but rather a lot of smaller things will be better. Detailed lighting affects, smoother animations, better framerates, etc will be better on the PS4 along with a small to medium difference in graphics.

I will say to those people who believe games are made for the lowest common denominator, even if that is true (don't know if it will be) the PS4 would still look and run a little bit better. That's worse case scenario. Imagine the optimistic outlook.

When did Sony state the PS4 is 30% more powerful than the Xbone?
As far as I know Cerny said that the PS4 is the most powerful console and that was about it.
Is Nelson lying again or is he on a FUD campaign?
joeorc  +   881d ago

"When did Sony state the PS4 is 30% more powerful than the Xbone? "

Sony did not, that is the point, Microsoft did! they are the one's who stated they will not give up a 30% graphical advantage to Sony.

LMAO all Mark Cerny stated was that Sony had built the most powerful game console to date, and right now both Nintendo and Microsoft are not even disputing that claim from Mark!

what is Ironic is that Microsoft even gave out a % number. What that says to me they know themselves that the PS4 is more robust hardware wise, but that there is talk of the PS4 having a 50% advantage on the internet, and that was before Microsoft up clocked the chipset in the xboxone.

So now he states they will not be giving up 30%, the funny thing is we still do not know what the clock rate on the PS4 will end up to being, and the rumor im hearing is 1.8 GHz to near 2.1 Ghz peak max clock rate for step down down clock to remain cooler.

Most likely they may even keep the clock rate even @ 1.8 Ghz or less just to run even cooler temp sounds about right for the PS4's SOC.

so take that and make what you will of it.
