I read the article and i am ashamed to say this or ask but how will this benefit me or improve my gaming. This is genuine question as all this talk of ps4 delta magnifying over the xbox one ????? does not really compute. Thanks in advance

I also want to know what all that really means to gaming.

As for 3rd party games, the funny thing PS4 is getting exclusives for free like DBZ and Samurai Warriors, Sony don't have to pay for them and just fund 1st party studios

Simply put, the PS4 was built with quite a bit of GPU Compute power. Which is to say the GPU can perform some computational tasks that would otherwise be handled by the CPU. It hasn't really been tapped yet, but Sony's ICE team are developing better tools to leverage it.

GPU Compute is usually used for particle effects and/or some quite specific physics simulation (cloth and hair and such), but now that the consoles are embracing it the uses should expand. It's the most interesting part of the PS4 archetecture imo, and also their biggest gamble.

Think thuway is saying that because the ps4 has better gpu improvements made on gpu will benefit the ps4 more because it has a better gpu.

Not sure but it doesn't seem that possible dx12 improvements are believed or compared with the ice team gpgpu rendering by thuway improvements.

I live in the us in florida I have a ps4 , 360 ,xb1,and pc, xb live and steam tags are boots2asses0903 ,ps4 is boots2aces0903. I'm not positive if that's the steam account but I'm pretty sure it is.

PS4 will boost its power like I boost mine when I activate the Nine Tails mode.


NewMonday1341d ago

Technically you only have half the power of a proper 9 tails since you're dad had the the other half

Really cannot wait to see uncharted 4 gameplay in action ! that would be wonderfull!

It's not really more power, that's hardware locked. Think of it as more efficient use of the power ... unless they upclock the CPU and GPU. That's not out of the question. Then it WOULD be more power.

Nekroo911341d ago

efficiency= more power to work with = "MORE POWER"

Volkama1341d ago (Edited 1341d ago )

Increasing the available resource and using the resource you have more efficiently have the same end result. You could call that result "more power". Or "MORE POWER!" if that's your style.
