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

abzdine1422d 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...

BOLO1422d 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".

SolidStoner1422d 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

ZodTheRipper1422d 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.

saber000051422d 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.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1422d ago (Edited 1422d 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

ginsunuva1422d ago

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

JasonKCK1422d ago

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

Godlovesgamers1422d 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.

mistertwoturbo1422d ago (Edited 1422d 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.

drsfinest721422d ago

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

forcefullpower1422d 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.

Jughead34161422d ago (Edited 1422d 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).

MiHX21422d ago

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

darx1422d ago

@ Jughead

More eclusives on PC, just saying!

MethCupcakes1422d 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.

darx1422d ago

@ meth

Some gamer you are!

awi59511422d 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.

Dude4201422d 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.

gcolley1422d 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?

Water isn't wet, water can wet other things, but your point was made haha.

HammadTheBeast1422d ago

Actually, water molecules joined together in cohesion at room temperature are liquid.....

So water is wet.


_FantasmA_1417d ago

You get it. People just need to stop copying and pasting this water is wet comment online. It doesn't make any sense. Is skin fleshy, and is corn corny?

_FantasmA_1422d ago (Edited 1422d ago )

Water is not wet, water is what wets. Are flames on fire and is air windy?

torchic1422d ago

well said lol

my whole life has been a lie.

kevnb1422d ago (Edited 1422d 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.

thisismyaccount1422d ago (Edited 1422d 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.

Cuzzo631422d ago (Edited 1422d 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

sinjonezp1422d 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.
