Avalanche Details “Number of ROPs” Differences Between Radeon HD7970 and Next-Gen Consoles

While talking about the low number of ROPs (how many pixels we can output per clock), Emil revealed that a Radeon HD7970 can handle a 128bit path format. Next-Gen consoles, though, seem to be limited compared to GPUs similar to the aforementioned one.

That's quite an interesting read. Sticking with my PC (which has a 3GB HD7970) and PS4 until Sunset and Quantic break come out for the XBone.

Happy with my dual 3GB 7970s at the moment, might have to get a One if Halo 2 Anniversary has classic MP though.

Sarcasm1599d ago

That's good.

I for one am happy with my GTX 660 for Titanfall and my PS4 for Infamous.

Inn still rocking the 8800 gtx... suck it!...

Damn, I spend too much on booze. Inn fact I can't remember the last sober moment i browsed n4g...

Sarcasm1598d ago

^I still have an 8800GTS 320mb on my sister's desktop alive and kicking. Not bad for a 7 year old card.

oldskoolgamer7021599d ago

i have both and you can barely tell the difference. i actually prefer xbone because the ps4 controller is terrible

You could buy a modded PS4 controller that has different materials.

zero_gamer1599d ago (Edited 1599d ago )

He mentioned nothing about the materials. For all we know he might not be happy with how the controller is designed, how it is laid out or how it feels in his hands. Material-wise, my DS4 feels more durable than the DS3 and shows no signs of premature wear on any of my analogs, and it's the pack-in controller for my launch PS4. I love my DS4, but the Xbox One controller feels damn good in my hands as well. I'll buy one for my PC when I get around to it, or when I feel the need to do so.

No controller is liked by everyone.

Prime1571599d ago (Edited 1599d ago )

Exactly, zero_gamer, it's a preference thing.

Just stop, STOP.

The x1 controller is a downgrade from the 360 (TO ME and many others). Placement is terrible.

Again, to me, and many others, the ds4 trumps the x1's placement. It's small... maybe they want kid gamers, but the average gamer is 30-32, so where do your thumbs lie.

That's why mouse and keyboard should be allowed! Oh, you like how I changed the preference thing?

Sarcasm1598d ago

I feel the controller for the Xbox One is a downgrade from the 360. Looser sticks, hard to hit shoulder buttons, and that weird cross texture on the sticks themselves.

@ Old

You know you don't have a PS4, stop trolling, you sound just a little butt heart.

Kingnichendrix1598d ago

I dont think he has ever said anything positive about sony haha

Evilsnuggle1599d ago (Edited 1599d ago )

PS4 32 ROPs double the ROPS of xbone 16 ROPs. This is what I'm talking about. The PS4 has more advance than jant 50% more GPU power . Like 100% more ROPs and 400 % more ACEs PS4 8 xbone 2 the PS4 also has huma or Heterogeneous Systems Architecture. No xbone doesn’t have HUMA because it doesn't have unified memory Because of the Esram. Xbone is designed around kinect not gaming.

I know you a guy on a game forum know More than game developers and computer engineers. This is what Digital Foundry said I quote " final Xbox One architecture and the proof we need that PlayStation 4's 18 CU graphics core has 50 per cent more raw power than the GPU "
I don't know what you xbone fanBoys don't understand. PS4 has 18 GPU cores and xbone has 12 GPU cores that is 50 % more GPU cores. What you xbone fanBoys Are misinformed is that 50% more powerful doesn't equal 50 % more performance . 50% More power is equal to 28 percent performance gains in a GPU. Again if a car has 50 % more horsepower than another car doesn't mean it's 50% more faster than that another car.

Lol.....dude, you sure know how to get the best out of that one bubble! To funny!

Illusive_Man1599d ago

So much has been said about the PS4s hardware advantage without a full understanding of the individual platforms. The debate is much more complicated than the GPU and RAM. I don't believe for a second the PS4 is 50% faster and more powerful than Xbox One. The slides here seem to indicate they are comparable but achieve their performances very differently. Disagrees incoming, I'm sure.

Sevir1599d ago

Blind will be blind... Can't believe it but every game release proves it and developers confirm it everyday...

Much has been said about this and everyday I say people can't be so dense as to believe the PS4 isn't 50% more powerful than its closest competitor, yet and still it's it clear someone does!!!

Power of the cloud, secret sause, dual GPU, New Software update, Direct X12... I can't keep up. lol, I'll agree with what you say in reference to the slide, the machines achieve their results in different methods... The caveat here is the results show... PS4 performs better!
