Rebellion: PS4/XB1 Distance Closing

Rebellion believes that the distance between PS4 & XB1 is closing, and they may exploit the extra 10% GPU boost soon in Sniper Elite 3. (PS4, Rebellion, Sniper Elite 3, Xbox One)

Closing, for now but eventually as this generation continues one console is going to increase gap.

You got three chooses

A) PS4
B) XB1
C) Wii U

Closing?

Explain to me how 10 percent more GPU is so importatnt, but 50 percent more GPU power PS4 is not important.

author's fanboy logic does not make any sense.

If that 10 percent GPU do wonder when exploited, then the 50 percent more GPU on PS4 will create a massive gap when exploited too.

1. Even though developers are not pushing for straight parity, you'll have to be totally clueless to think that they will make one version of a game that looks a lot worse on one system over the other and loose sales on that system.

2. The gen has now started. to expect to see massive differences now would be unreal. when devs have fully unlocked the potential for both systems and one of them has a lot more potential to unlock then that is another story.

3. The reality is the only devs that will be really pushing the limitations of these systems are the first part devs and I guarantee you we will begin seeing a noticeable difference in the quality of first party titles.

We have already seen what the ps4 is capable of in it's early stages with infamous, driveclub, the order and soon uncharted. It is unimaginable what we will be seeing in five years. Just as we saw the ps3 push graphics that were never seen on the 360, we're going to have a repeat this gen. But it's going to be worse.
Bigpappy  +   152d ago
@GameNameFame (NextLevel): Because , just maybe,PS4 is NOT 50% more powerful.

Its the developers making the claim that the performance gap is closing. Not the Author. So you are the one being the fan boy, by claiming bios when the author QOUTED the developer in verbatim.

You obviously didn't read, because you keep copy and pasting the line in ever article where developers are saying they could reach parity.

Most people live a world where only one contender has the ability to evolve be exploited or otherwise be used in a way to maximize it potential! Because after all we live in a world where resources are limited and therefore it's only logical that the one that people perceive to have the most room to grow, be the one that's the candidate.

What's really intriguing is how quick some are to hang their hats on the next big thing, when everything prior has been shot down! Do we need examples!?

You're getting disagrees for stating that now the xbox can use 10% of the 1.3tflops gpu for gaming, but the 1.8tflops gpu on the ps4 means nothing.

How can Ausbo have 5 bubbles when he doesent understand this?!

10% more that was reserved for the kinect inside the 1.3 tflops gpu its STILL WEAKER than a 1.8 tflops gpu!!! Hypocrites

i agree
it's pretty amazing how 40 to 50% stronger/faster GPU and stronger/faster Ram are
""Meh, no big deal..GFX don't matter it's teh fun ""

but somehow unlocking 10% of GPU which bring it back to 1.31Tflops
which still much more weaker than ps4 GPU is
""OMG TEH GAP IS CLOSING""

EDIT: @Ausbo
1.31Tflops (7770) Vs. 1.84tflops (7850)

It actually do. 1.84 Tflop for PS4 and 1.18 tflop for XOne.

Not ghz, but the actual power it self.

It has 50 percent more computing units too.

As for games using 50 percent more GPU, look at Infamous, Driveclub. or any game that has resolution gap.

900p vs 1080p is about 50 percent more pixels. you fanboys ask for proof, but you never accept it.

PS4 has same CU chips as X1, but literally has more of it. like 50 percent. again, its facts you are too desperate to accept.

You have no clue what you even just said nor does anyone else... Because it is absolutely nonsensical. GameNameFame's initial comment wasn't much better but at least he made a valid point(that 10% improvement needs to be taken in context). For the respect of others please refrain from making comments regarding hardware performance..

Technically the 10% is less substantial... It only applies to the GPU... Yes the GPU is very important but if the improvement didn't come where the bottlenecks were, then its really just marketing fodder and will offer little help to actually improve games..

Marketing fodder is something MS is notorious for. I haven't been hearing many devs coming out and claiming that this 10% helped them bring parity or even close the gap between the two systems, in fact most seem to avoid direct responses to the said improvement with vague("It's possible somewhere in the future" type responses)...Aside from that devs will take whatever they can get and usually be grateful. We like to take things out of context here on N4g though.
fr0sty  +   152d ago | Well said
Not 50% more power?

The 50% number was actually derived from the number of compute units in PS4's GPU. PS4 has 50% more CUs than Xbox One.

It has 250% more RAM bandwidth to its main pool of RAM.

It has 50% more texture units (each CU has 4 TUs in it, so 50% more CUs = 50% more TUs).

It has 400% more asynchronous compute engines.

It has 100% more render output pipelines.

So, that 50% was actually the lower of the percentage numbers chosen, though you can't accurately just slap a percentage on a console and say it is X% more powerful than Y. It doesn't work that way. However, if you want to talk about raw power of the individual components, 50% is actually among the more conservative figures you could toss around.

Both have bottlenecks that prevent them from utilizing their full potential. Both have a weak CPU, though PS4 makes up for it with the additional compute units that can perform GPGPU tasks to aid the CPU. So, PS4 will be CPU bound less often than XO due to having a helping hand from those CUs. XO has some nice fast ESRAM, but it's bottlenecked into only being able to use a tiny, TINY 32mb of it at once.

The gap isn't closing however... not by enough to matter. For every step forward XO makes, PS4 also cranks out an optimization that brings its lead back out again. Both consoles will continue to have what we consider them to be capable of improve... but there will never be a day where parity exists between the two. Not even close. There will always be a noticeable performance gap resulting in lower resolution, effects, etc. on XO, unless the developer purposely dumbs down their game to target the lowest powered hardware configuration.

@sd11

It comes from the original TF numbers which were 1.23TF before MS overclocked the GPU to 853MHz, thereby raising the teraflops to 1.31TF, which your right isnt 50% more (its 40.7% more). However, the PS4 still has 50% more shader cores/units (1152 shader vs 768) and also has 50% more compute units (18CUs vs 12). So thats were it comes from. However, there's a bunch of other areas where the PS4 is more powerful, like for example, its got a 100% more ROPS (32 vs 16) and they matter for resolution. Its also has 400% more ACE/queues(Asynchronous Compute Units) (8/64 vs 2/16). Its got 50% more Texture Units (72 vs 48) and 88% more pixel fillrate at 25.6GPixels vs 13.6 and 40% higher texture fillrate at 57.GTexels vs 40 on the X1. Also the PS4 176GB/s memory bandwidth is 258% higher than X1's 68GB/s to its RAM. However, it does also have 204GB/s bandwidth but only to its 32MB eSRAM. Which in my opinion is to small, hence alot of the systems issues. The X1 does have a 9.375% higher clocked CPU (at 1.75GHz vs 1.6) but there is reason to believe that the PS4's CPU may still be faster (due to benchmarks). Also the GPU on the X1 is 6.6% mhz higher.
wsoutlaw87  +   151d ago
A lot of the comments hear are acting as if ms added 10% which would add to the tflops and the hardware its self. It is still the same hardware, they are just allowing devs to use 10% more of it than they were.
Sy_Wolf  +   151d ago
@Ausbo The GPU in the PS4 has twice as many compute units giving it a 50% performance advantage with GPU compute. It also has more stream processors. Also you should learn about how hardware works before you try to comment on it. The PS4's GPU certainly isn't clocked twice as fast as the one in the Xbox, that would require liquid cooling and an insanely binned GPU. Also a way bigger power supply.
Azzanation  +   151d ago

Some people don't seem to understand that the teraflops numbers we have been given are the theoretical maximum of each console. The PS4 will ALWAYS be about 50% more powerful in terms of raw numbers, however over the years developers will get new and improved tools and techniques to reach that maximum theoretical performance. But the difference in numbers between the consoles will NEVER change.

The PS4 sure isn't showing 50% more power in its exclusives:

Killzone Shadow Fall: no Campaign Co-op, shoot an enemy in the chest they fall forward...ridiculous

Infamous Second Son: "hop" up a building to a window, look at the building behind you, then look at the same building through the reflection...it isn't the same building! I mean LMAO! It's like the building turns into a McDonald's, a Gas Station, a Pizza Hut, or something; whatever it is, it isn't the same building. It's open world with nothing in it, very stupid AI, no damage left on buildings, you can beat a car with this massive Rottweiler dog chain & leave no damage to the car, then the car explodes after a while...wtf?

Knack: well, this is self explanatory garbage.

The Order 1886: you have 4 interesting players...no Campaign Co-op? Wtf?

Drive Club: started off very ambitious, now has no where near the features it said it was going to have.

So, where's this 50% more power? It's all talk because it isn't on display in their Exclusive Games.

You cannot close the distance between hardware specs. One machine will ALWAYS be able to outperform the other. No amount of 10%gpu, 5%cpu, directx, hidden triple core cpu super overdrive hardware esram tricks is ever going to change that.

If that was the case then video card manufacturers would not need to be making upgraded video cards every 6 months. They would have just either released software drivers to boost performances or sent out firmware updates to allow the cards to utilize more power on the older video cards.

The hardware may not be the same but the graphics aren't too far off. You might as well accept the fact that the xb1 is not as strong as the ps4 but can produce some nice ass looking games.

When one console version of the game is rendering twice the pixels as it's competition, the graphics definitely are far off.

No one(rational) is saying the xb1 is incapable of producing gorgeous looking games. But stop trying to spin the xb1 hardware as slightly weaker than the ps4.

For a guy proclaiming to not be on anyone's side, you sure have a bad habit of defending the xb1 against any detractors. At least far more often than a truly "neutral" gamer should be.

OpenGL is superior to DirectX. This is a controversial topic, but OpenGL is at least capable of just as much, if not more than DirectX, because OpenGL doesn't require downloading a specific version of DirectX every time you download a game, it has had access to tessellation and a ton of other effects normally before DirectX but it simply just doesn't have wide support because of DirectX's hype back in the 90's PC market. DirectX is also only limited to Windows and is more restricting, while OpenGL can be ported to almost any platform with no problems and with enough work it will perform better than a DirectX version.

People should learn that performance of games is up to developers,CoD ghosts for example that game runs and looks terrible on PS4 but lets not forget the relationship Activision has with MS where they receive XBL money,look at their official forum and see the active Xbox support while the playstation versions get very little to none support,in general the newer systems get sloppy ports the focus still remains on the bigger instal base.

Yeah, and I hate to say it, but this is partially why I'm kind of optimistically watching Destiny. I couldn't bring myself to preorder it because of the Activision connection. I hate how they're mainly the ones that stamped the competitive multiplayer map $$$ DLC tag onto shooters that others ran with, that's destroying the genre's community.

This is why Epic never use to charge for mods and map packs back in the PC days of Unreal Tournaments. They made all those maps and gave the tools to users to keep the community thriving, and they looked at giving the free AAA quality maps as a way of ensuring huge sales on the next sequel in the franchise.

Now, folks like Activision with their COD devs do it the other way around. They force you to buy the new maps if you want to not lose the majority of the player pool, because you and the people who don't buy the maps will be playing with less people after that. It's just how it works, it creates 2 pools of players, I guess those who buy it have more people to play with than those who don't - but they still have less than they had before. It happens with each map pack release too, cuz not everyone that buys the 1st one or 2 will be the last 2. So, the pools keep getting smaller, that combined with the fact that it's not dedicated servers and you can't choose from a list - makes it horrible.

I want to buy Killzone just to support them for making a bold statement at the start of the generation. Keeping the competitive mp map packs free is the right thing to do for so many reasons. I wish I found the gameplay a lil more fun though.

The X1 has never had trouble rendering the same graphics as the PS4. The trouble comes with rendering those same graphics at the same resolution as the PS4. So they sacrifice resolution so they don't lose any graphic fidelity.
strickers  +   151d ago
That would be fine if it were true. It's not though.
They have lower res AND often lower fps, more tearing, missing or reduced fx and worse or less AA.
Just accept it and move on
Lennoxb63  +   151d ago
@strickers

What? That doesn't make sense. If a game is 900p on X1 and 1080p on PS4. Why don't they crank the X1 version's res up if it had all that stuff missing in the first place. X1 doesn't have any lower graphics fx. Just lower res and on occasion lower frame rate.

Where does bone heads get the Ps4 is 50% more CPU??? This how crap gets started, I own both systems, n Ps4 don't have anything special over X1, if you don't own both you should not be able to talk bout the one you don't have, cause all people knows is what they read, and we all know bout some of the writer!!!!! Ps4 has a ton of tearing in some of its games with the 50% more whatever! how does the Sony babies feel bout that????

Woah...So wait a minute...I own a 2004 STI, but I can't talk about the Mitsubishi Evo because I don't own it? WTF kind of sense does that make? I could have bought either one...and before you go and say we are talking about video games...not cars...its comparing two very similar products competing for your dollar! I love the Evo, could have bought one, but I love the boxer rumble, at the better torque curve! I love the PS4's power and their 1st party games! Same sh!t dude!

I own both as well and I agree with you to some extent. Like it or not the ps4 is the stronger console. That is a fact. Now I don't think well see this gap in the games like some trolls think. Last gen the best looking titles were TLOU and uncharted followed by some others. Now when I take gears 3 and compare to TLOU, both look great but TLOU looks better. I don't see a huge gap but there is a gap. The same will happen with this gen. I same an article on n4g saying the wit her 3 demo was running on the xb1. I bet that surprised a lot of people. Honestly it surprised me. The game looked gorgeous. I think a lot of people under estimate the xb1 in the Sony camp and a lot of people overestimate it on the ms camp. The fact is the games are going to look fantastic but the ps4 has the advantage. In the end it's up to the devs. No point in bragging about a system when most devs won't use it's full potential. That goes for both the xb1/ps4.
Goku781  +   152d ago
Lets see how Destiny turns out next to PS4 first. The beta's not even running 1080p yet. PS4 is just a better spec'd machine only so much cutting conners can be done with Xbox One.
MCTJim  +   152d ago
I own both. The games we are seeing now are still considered launch games before all tools and SDK's were optimized. Who the heck is going to rewrite code for a game that they want to release. Its not as simple as just applying the new SDK and blam, better effects, resolution etc. Once the tools are better we will see differences between the two, though the 50% difference is not true at all, real life differences maybe 10-15% at best. The PS4 has better raw hardware. There is no disputing that... That will be about it..No real eye popping differences.

Isn't rendering at higher resolution equate to the power difference?
KNWS  +   152d ago
Astounding especially in light of Sniper Elite dropping lot more frames with the PS4 version compared to the xb1 version. XB1 version wasn't using the new SDK.

A true proper analysis
https://www.youtube.com/wat...

Digital foundry analysis on the otherhand was crap. Especially in light and knowing this guy reviews PC graphic cards for Nivida and AMD and writes articles for them. He's a PC elitist with no hidden agenda or bias to either console. Eurogamer is a website that supports Sony.

Wolfenstein the order was 1080p on xb1
Sniper elite is 1080p too
Destiny will be 1080p
Crew 1080p too

Ps4 50 per cent powerful was always a joke and i'm glad its now showing up to be just that.

PS4 WAS never 50 per cent faster or more than 50 per cent more powerful.

The PS4 uses 14 CU's for games, the raw stats of the CPU show 22 CU's with 18 been used. Multi-core processors have inherent inefficiency with more CU's-14 is the balance and a Playstation dev confirmed they were only using 14. Microsoft uses 12 CU's for games. This therefore decreases teraflop performance. So in reality the PS4 is about 10 to 15 per cent more powerful.

MasterCornholio  +   152d ago
"Rebellion's in-house Asura engine proves that it has the potential to bring a 60fps experience to consoles, although the technology doesn't appear to be fully optimised for the task in hand given the large gap between PC, PS4 and Xbox One performance. The PS4 game holds up rather well in approaching a 60fps set-up while featuring almost identical graphical quality to the PC game running with ultra settings enabled. The frame-rate drops are still distracting, but aren't really severe enough to heavily impact upon the gameplay. It's clearly the most dependable console version and easily the one to go for given the choice.

In comparison, the Xbox One version feels like it could have used a little more time in development to better optimise around Microsoft's more complicated hardware set-up. The graphical compromises rob scenes of some fine detail, while performance fails to deliver anywhere near a perceptual 60fps. An obvious solution for achieving closer parity may have been to drop resolution, but in a game so reliant on picking out small detail from a distance, that probably isn't the best idea. There's the sense that Rebellion simply made the best compromises available. By and large, it works. There's still much to enjoy here - it's just that the experience isn't as solid as it is on competing platforms."

KNWs facts are not facts if they come from a poorly done comparison. I'm sorry but Eurogamers extensive comparisons says that the PS4 version is better than the Xbox One version with the PC being the best version of the game.

"Eurogamer is a website that supports Sony. "

Bet you weren't saying that last generation when many of their analysis articles showed the PS3 versions of games running slightly worse than the 360's versions. What a joke of a post you have there. Are you MR.X in disguise or just one of his acolytes?
Yetter  +   151d ago
@MasterCornholio Neither of us once said that the XB1 version of sniper elite was better than the PS4 system. What we are disputing is the '50% more power claim'. It is more like 10-15% and KNWS clearly pointed out why
MasterCornholio  +   151d ago
Maybe you didn't but KNWs clearly said that the XB1 version of Sniper Elite 3 was better than the PS4 version. He uses gamingbolt as his source to prove that. However their comparison is horribly don't and Eurogamer's tech analysis is much better. But then he discredits Eurogamer by calling them a bunch of "Sony fanboys".

Why do you keep making yourself look bad by supporting him? Its almost as bad as supporting Truefan1 in my opinion.
MaxKingoftheWild  +   152d ago
First off, you didn't watch the YouTube clip did you? The Brit said Xb1 version suffers from more screen tearing and poorer image quality overall.

Secondly, eurogamer supports playstation? Then why did 360 vs ps3 always go to the 360 unless ps3 was used as lead platform?
Gwiz  +   152d ago
They might render 1080p but how about the FPS?,some games in that regard are developed so they would be 1080p/60fps on both systems like Wolfenstein is,and i expect certain games to be equally on both accounts.
It's obvious though that certain games have higher res while running 30fps like WD is,unless Ubisoft did that on purpose because Sony was really advertising the shit out of this game and of course having a movie deal between them.

I forsee a lot of BS this gen.

GamersHeaven  +   152d ago
You're pathetic you have to post lies in order to feel better about your purchase of a inferior version of Sniper Elite 3.SE3 drops more frames on the Xbox One this has been proven by DF analysis PS4 has 5-10 FPS lead with a solid V-SYNCED unlike Xbox One which has terrible screen tearing http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... < Not sure if you know how to read or understand what that all means but it will give you some insight on horrible Xbox One looks and performs compared to PS4/PC its a mess.

BTW all those other games you mentioned being 1080p look and perform better on PS4 that's with them trying there hardest for parity.Mister X called he wants his medication back.

plasticidolatry  +   152d ago
Almost everything in your post is wrong.

The youtube video you linked improperly counts torn frames as a full frame, when it should be discarded. DF's framerate analysis is the proper one.

Wolfenstein on Xbox One frequently downscales resolution to 960x1080 to maintain 60 fps.

Sniper Elite 3 is 1080p yes, but constant screen tearing unless locked at 30 fps, and lower AA/AO.

Destiny isn't 1080p yet, and if it is, it will have lower framerate and visual effects, as expected.

The Crew isn't released yet.

PS4 has +6 CUs, +540 GFlops (40% greater) or more, +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support (volatile bit and onion+ gpu cache bypass bus), better performing CPU, faster unified memory, and less OS overhead.

All 18 GPU CUs (compute units) in the PS4 can be used for graphics rendering. You said CPU instead of GPU, a huge fundamental mistake.

It's gonna be epic when it finally comes to light that the Xbox One is actually the stronger faster console. The internet will melt down. The Xbox One is built on future tech which is not fully utilized with today's game engines and way of coding. I know i will be mocked and ridiculed for these statements but i have definitive and reliable insider information that Microsoft is in fact unable to reveal the true nature of their hardware due to strict NDA's with AMD. I know most of you have heard this before but soon these claims will be substantiated and the gaming world will know the true power of Microsoft's cutting edge machine.

Approximately when will this happen? 2 yrs,3,4,5? Next month maybe? What game might showcase this power? I assure you Naughty Dog will blow away any 1st party developer on XB1. Quantic Dream always has good visuals too! What developer can compete with ND or QD when it comes to visuals? Maybe Remedy...maybe, but still not the best!

We just can't show you yet cause reasons," and expect them to believe you and buy the shit out of your product is just naive and childish.

Sniper Elite 3 Digital Foundry Face-Off

- PS4 fares well, almost matching PC IQ (@1080p), running at ultra settings as DF claims.

- XB1 has lower resolution artwork and reduced texture filtering and also limited indirect shadowing

- PS4 closest to delivering 60 fps experience among consoles, with a 5-10 fps lead over XB1

- XB1 has trouble keeping a consistent framerate when vegetation is on screen

- XB1 suffers a lot from tearing

In terms of the consoles, the PS3 boasts smoother-looking shadows than Xbox One

The performance distance between the two is very close, ms don't have to turn the equivelant of a tractor into a formula 1 race car they just need to add an air freshner to that tractor to catch up with the competition. The formula 1 car is the PC, these machines cannot compete with a high end one, best they can do is add go faster stripes to the tractor and hope no one notices.

Sniper Elite 3 is the worst game I've bought on my PS4... It took 3 weeks for them to release a patch for the multiplayer, and the thing still sucks. So much pop in during MP that I swear sometimes I thought I see a guy moving, and here it's just a window or bush pixelating so much on the map that it looks like movement.
