Nvidia VP on Next-Gen Consoles: "There's no way a 200W Xbox is going to beat a 1,000W PC"

Nvidia is in the limelight these days. First they announced that they are working with the SteamOS and boasting on how much powerful PCs are as compared to consoles. Given that Nvidia was skipped by both the titans of console manufacturers who opted to go with AMD this time, it is understandable that it is siding with the PC gamers and assuring them each and every way.

Nvidia’s senior vice president of technology Tomy Tamasi stated that the PCs will leave the consoles behind, again.

Well no shit. Lol. Water is wet, fire burns too! Nvidia

abzdine1572d ago

shut up Nvidia, this is just jealousy cause you haven't sold chips to MS and Sony.
I wonder what they'd have said if next gen consoles were equiped with Nvidia chips...

BOLO1572d ago

Something along the lines of..."We can extract Titan-like performance from our GTX (insert number here) based GPU for the next-gen consoles".

SolidStoner1572d ago

cool... so now we know.. lets sit back and enjoy the power of PC.. it can really create great games for my consoles :)

funny thing is that those games are developed on PC but playable only on consoles... (well I mean all great and greatest games)..

especially GTA5, but good to know that PC has "the power".. :D mine also has it.. pity N4G dosnt use all that power! :D

ZodTheRipper1572d ago

I think it's good that there's a company left that's going for high end performance. I'll be getting a PS4 first but in 2-4 years I'll need a new PC so I want it to outpower my console by far.

saber000051572d ago

abzdine, they wouldn't be able to comment about it if Microsoft and Sony were their client. AMD did and they got severely chewed up by Microsoft. It's 100% against their contract.

He isn't wrong though.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1572d ago (Edited 1572d ago )

Are u people idiots?? Stop hating nvidia..

They only talk becuz journalist ask them question..

Dumb asses.

Also AMD Mantle is gonna make things worse for consoles..

PC is about to be optimized like consoles lol

Can't wait to try it with bf4.. Pc going up and next gen is already degrading..

No need for windows for bf4 soon.

But yes I still want ps4. I love many games man.. lol

ginsunuva1572d ago

Even for the ps3 they said nothing good. They just said they're happy to work with Sony.

JasonKCK1572d ago

Nvidia is famous for burning bridges and letting opportunities slip by.

Godlovesgamers1572d ago

Exactly. Had they secured the chip deal for this console gen they would've been praising the new generation of consoles.

Nvidia: Displaying the maturity of a small child, in HD.

mistertwoturbo1572d ago (Edited 1572d ago )

I prefer Nvidia GPUs and all, but yeah it really looks like sour grapes here.

Because no matter what Nvidia says, no matter how true PC's graphics will be more powerful than consoles, the simple pure FACT that consoles will sell millions and millions and millions of units. Look at the PS3/360/Wii = 258M units combined.

So imagine however many millions of units sold of PS4/Xbone = Zero revenue for Nvidia.

Totally agree. NVidia really need to shut up its getting annoying. I buy Nvidia cards and even they are making me think about going AMD next time.

drsfinest721572d ago

You should lol remember Sony and ms approached nvidia first about creating you for next gen and they said they regretting it.

forcefullpower1572d ago

With all the talk about Mantle aswell its a very interesting time. I wont hide my hatred for Direct X and hope these new systems make it obsolete.

Jughead34161572d ago (Edited 1572d ago )

How many games for consoles that can't be played on PC?
Halo, Gears of War, God of War, Uncharted, Last of Us, Little Big Planet, Infamous, Killzone....list can go on. PC can have all that power. I'll take console exclusives all day long (along with my couch and 60inch TV).

MiHX21572d ago

If you will buy an AMD PC with AMD Graphics Card,It will suck because we want your money so badly.

darx1572d ago

@ Jughead

More eclusives on PC, just saying!

MethCupcakes1572d ago

@Darx Yeah sure, but those are exclusives that either no one has heard about, ones that no one wants to play and/or exclusives that you and many other people are playing just because of popular YouTubers.

darx1572d ago

@ meth

Some gamer you are!

awi59511572d ago


Thats not it nvidia wanted to rip the console makers off again. What nvidia did to Microsoft with the original xbox pricing is legendary. Its was the biggest consumer hardware ^())*& over of all time. And both microsoft and sony was determined not to let nvidia get away with their shady tactics this time and thats why they are left out.

Dude4201572d ago

lol @ Meth.

Difference is, PC games/mods etc... don't need to be marketed heavily like console exclusives to be successful. You really don't know the magnitude of the PC gaming community.

gcolley1572d ago

Idiots. He answered a question...
PCPP: In the past, when a new console launched, the graphics were on par, if not even better, than a reasonably well-specced PC of the time. Yet at this year’s E3, we noticed that the Xbox One and PS4 demos didn’t look as good as the earlier PC demos of the same games. Do you think the lead that consoles had in the past at launch day is over?

kevnb1572d ago (Edited 1572d ago )

pr for the pc, someone has to do it. I hope people realize intel and nvidia were the first choice, but they wanted alot more money than desperate amd will settle for. The gpu in these new consoles looks fine, but im really not sold on the cpu yet. Im sure there will be great games, but the cpu seems like a bottle neck. Im expecting little improvements gameplay wise, but higher framerates and shinnier graphics.
People act like amd is going to start making tons of money off of this, they were in the 360 and the wii but were still bleeding money. AMD is going to need to get into tablets and improve in other markets, or they could be in serious trouble here soon.

thisismyaccount1572d ago (Edited 1572d ago )

Yet - visually no PC games will look 10 - 16 times better than it´s "younger sibilings", it will run at a higher resolution for those that crave 4k and more :

200W ph > 1000W ph... (the bill is cheaper)

Nvidia has (e)Nvidia < put this on a t-shirt pls!!! on the back and sumtin else on the front.

Cuzzo631572d ago (Edited 1572d ago )

@drsfinest you took the words right out of my mouth.

@Mithan kill urself. Pc trolls

Thank you Nvidia for stating the obvious. Please get back to fueling ur jealous fangirl publicity. No one cares but the pc trolls and fannies.
Gamers are gaming regardless and doin all of this is not gonna make us go out and buy pc's for ur overpriced gfx cards. Give it a rest. When TLOU, Halo, Forza, Uncharted or GranTurismo hits pc then there is no need to have a pc. Unless you wanna play Civilization or something. Lol. Im content with the weaker consoles. The others are not content with their hardware it seems

sinjonezp1572d ago

Well, we can sit here and talk about hate but the guy is trying to market that if you want the best gaming experience, get a PC. While most of us here on n4g is knowledgeable about this, some are not. They want to get the message clear. I would never stop buying nvidia cards. I am not going to let people like this thwart my views on the product because nvidia makes quality cards and amd cannot match their driver support. I will get a ps4 and a xb1 soon but I know that my gtx cards can run anything at 1080p and that's a good thing. If anything maybe they should adjust the message into a positive one instead of dogging the ps4 and xb1.

Yea except now Nvidia is working with Steam which is huge. Which honesty is better for PC gaming Nvidia or AMD? I've heard AMD.

THC CELL1572d ago (Edited 1572d ago )

Nvida has done nothing but moan since amd got the consoles

Are_The_MaDNess1572d ago (Edited 1572d ago )

Nvidia is better for Gaming IMO.
more often Driver patches,
GeForce Experience for those that don't know how to use settings in game (i dont use it myself but its really good for the new guys),
Cuda (good for more than gaming, alot of Video and 3D tools use it aswell)
Driver Patches increase performance, always.
you can stream to Geforce Shield (if you have one and a 600series+ GPU)
better SLi scaling for games.

there is alot more for PC gaming in Nvidia but those are the main lines i think myself.

tho the new mantle things from AMD can be a game changer one its out. but we dont know if N will use it aswell tho :D

@Nabbic bellow
well how often do you get your driver patches?
do they increase performance in games?
all drivers of Nvidia gives performance for specific and none specific games.
all from 5% to even 40% in performance (i have seen it once or twice) just from drivers.

Nabbic1572d ago

Hey, I like AMD.
I've got a Saphire HD 7870 XT w/ Boost and an AMD FX 6300 Piledriver in my custom and they perform flawlessly.

AMD drivers aren't as bad as everyone says they are, and I've had no issue with them yet.

TheFamous11572d ago

Nvidia is a better product for GPU's and Intel is a better processor than AMD - but they cost more for that reason.

Edito1572d ago

You can't play Uncharted or Halo on a Super PC...

Are_The_MaDNess1572d ago (Edited 1572d ago )

well halo isnt that great IMO. an on rail shooter IMO.
and Uncharted (the first one) was good for its time. newer once fail hard IMO (atleast the 3rd one)

i personally think controller is way to in accurate to be presice when it comes to shooting, you can follow a moving target to pin point precision. you cant be as accurate in general IMO.

Nabbic1572d ago (Edited 1572d ago )

I agree with your comments about Halo, but you can use any controller you want on a PC. Most support 360 ones out of the box, and there's software to allow you to use Dualshock and map controls. And personally I feel dualshock hits the spot in certain games over keyboard.
Plus, Uncharted 3 was fun.

IHassounah1572d ago

PC fanboy ? looks like it cause after all, both games are great (Halo+Uncharted) , I also love ARMA 3 that is exclusive for the PC but yet your gonna continue saying bullshit about PC is better , I'll tell you that AMD is actually better than Nvidia cause they made chips for the X1 and the PS4

Are_The_MaDNess1572d ago

actually no, im not a PC "fanboy" as you bluntly call it.

but frankly a controller in not as accurate or precise. (try playing CSGO with a controller, you wont hit a 180 headshot within the first 10 hours of gameplay thats for sure)

analog sticks are the problem here IMO.

BTW: i think Uncharted 3 is a disgrace of the series considering the first two games (dont get me started on the vita game) both the 3rd game and the Vita game took looks over a stable framerate. i couldnt finnish them at all since the frame rate was up and down all the time and messing up my aim.

and im not a "fanboy"

even have a Wii U, Wii, PSP Go, 3DS among others......... i love all kinds of games. but i love quality and precision of my controls more.

TheFamous11572d ago

Uncharted is pretty great and I was an Xbox 360 owner this gen - Halo has gone to shit. When you look at the Xbox exclusives you have Halo, Gears of War, Forza and Fable - all tired and uninteresting now.

Edito1572d ago

Even so you just can't those games and many others on a PC... the almighty PC will have to wait for GTAV, had to wait for MK and will have to wait for many more games and at this point in time for me at least it's not about graphics or power it's about the experience... Consoles give me more of the experiences i like in games...

Cuzzo631572d ago (Edited 1572d ago )

Please stop it. Most pc games are on consoles. The same game just prettier. No console exclusives on pc except those rts games and a few others. So why limit urself to pc when ur missing out on great games. GTA5 Iis great by the way. How are those petitions goin for the pc version. Lol
But I think a gamepad is better. My opinion. Dnt have to worry about cramps after a intense session

Not until they're emulated.

despair1572d ago

Funny how people reference the console exclusive games but ignore the PC exclusives, the instant or super fast loading times, the better look and multiple controller options (keyboard/mouse, gamepad etc.) The upgradable hardware, the 100 other uses a PC has that Consoles don't.

If you are going to argue something then put all the facts forward (oh and Halo 1 and 2 are on PC). I own both a gaming PC and a PS3 and I don't understand this whole PC "master race" vs Console "rabid fanboys" bullshit.

You keep arguing about which is better and I'll enjoy both.

Cuzzo631572d ago (Edited 1572d ago )

Lol. Pc exclusives.... Every rts games there is. Lol. Myst... besides graphics and the "multiple controller options". What else is there. Oh you can make graphs and play solitaire. Super fast load times? Yea if you have alot of good ram... how many pc exclusive have the console players been beggn for? None... Oh. Sims at one point. Upgradeable hardware. That is more of a nusiance than anything knowing you have to upgrade every 3 days to keep up. Lmao. Ps3 only had a split 512 mb of ram. Name one game that can run on pc with only that lol. Wonder how a multiplat game would look and play with only 512 mb of ram. It wont.
