There is so much wrong with this article and clearly the author hasn't done any worth while research.
3840 by 2160 and 4096 by 2160 are considered 4K its just that 3840 by 2160 keeps the really nice aspec ratio of 16:9
Any monitor that has 8.3 million pixels in less than 30" isn't cheap at all!
Also his understanding of interfaces and how refresh rate/frame rate isn't great
HDMI 1.4 can support
3840 by 2160 a...
I think people are missing the point, including this article, Steam Machine isn't the killer reason, the killer reason is Steam OS!
I think Gabe said that Valve was very unhappy with Windows back in 2011 ish. It was mid 2012 when they announced that they was working on Steam for Linux and have been working with the Ubuntu Team.
After 3 months of working on L4D2 Linux without DirectX and Windows overheads they were achieving 50% more performance. That'...
Is it just me or does TLoU look terrible on the TV and Vita
Maybe it was internet bandwidth or something :/
I can kinda understand the other 4 games but Train Simulator 2014 doesn't make sense.
Firstly most of the simulators content was out before TS 2014 so this comment is redundant "If you do end up downloading all 133 pieces of DLC (and counting), try and enjoy it while you can — Train Simulator 2015 is right around the bend."
Most of the content comes from TS 2013, 2012, 2011 and RailWorks with a few coming from Rail Simulator. All content is futu...
Its a joke when you hear Next Gen and not all games at 60fps 1080p
I play the majority of games at 60 - 120fps, 1080p - 1440p on max settings with 4xAA - 8xAA. Additionally adaptive V-Sync or just V-Sync
When G-Sync monitors come out or mods come out I'll be getting or doing it. The System always the GPU the monitor and modify the refresh rate on the fly so that its always in sync with the GPUs frame rate.
G-Sync if what they're sayin...
Expect the PS4 is no where near as powerful.
It's like comparing a Fiat Panda to a Ferrari 458 Italia
Radeon R9 290X
5.63Tflop/s - 206%
2816 Shaders - 144%
176 TMUs - 144%
64 ROPs - 100%
Ask my friend this who got a gaming PC and found it hard to play any game at 30fp now.
You're use to 30fps and trust me after a few days of 60fps or 120fps 30 is very noticeable.
I play most of my games at 120fps and even the difference between 120 and 60 is noticeable :)
Sorry you cant say a HD 7850 is equal to a HD 7700
Love how half of it just baked trailers and the rest is PC footage LOL.
Okay some Console gameplay lol
WOW did I really just read this?
The PC I built my friend in 2011 already outshines PS4/XB1 in terms of hardware.
You can already see a considerable difference Battlefield 4!
This person already says "7850 is a high mid-end graphics card" in the article, I could list about 30 GPUs more powerful right now.
Of course they'll keep with the other platforms.
Intel ran LGA775 and LGA771 platforms till 2008
then they ran LGA1156 and LGA1366 platforms till 2012
LGA1155 and LGA2011 are both still supported
However Intel currently flagship platforms are LGA1150 and LGA2011
Getting a Sandybrige-E or Ivybridge-E would be pretty foolish, it's marketed to extreme enthusiasts and I mean extreme.
I would recommend Ivybridge or...
I love how people are comparing Battlefield 4 to Killzone Shadow Fall
Remember how people were comparing Crysis to Haze.
Bottom line is BF4 will have huge 64 player maps with destructible environment and vehicles, where as KZSF will have small Call of Duty maps probably 32 player max without destructible environment and only jump packs!!!
Looks like my PC will be playing it near maxed out on 29th of October :)
I'm sorry but did you just say that.
GFLOPs is a computational calculation, doesn't mean its got higher performance.
AMD FX 8350 Piledriver was their flagship CPU it has about double the performance of the AMD Jaguar found in PS4 and XB1.
Pretty much every Intel Core i5 since 2010 is better than AMD FX 8350, so how will a laptop/ low end desktop CPU compete with that?
Yeah the PS4 and XB1 versions will not be playing it maxed out, not a chance.
My PC Spec:
Intel Core i5 2500K @ 4GHz
Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 @ 1.1/6GHz
16GB Corsair Vengeance LP 1.6GHz
60GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD (Windows)
240GB Kingston HyperX 3K SSD (Steam)
2TB Western Digital Green HDD (Steam)
1TB Western Digital Green HDD (Everything else)
I can max out BF3 at 1080p with 4xAA at 60Fps
I'm going to be getting it on PS3, but instantly getting PC version because it going to be superior in every way.
The below paragraphs are intended for a user above
Why would Nvidia be butt hurt, they make lots of money releasing the latest and greatest technology, AMD themselves have said the console deals will only bring in about 1/5 of their annual profits.
AMD needed the deal...
I don't think anyone could argue against PS+ free games, however other platform have the other stuff.
Steam Play I can play across Windows, Linux and Mac and get unlimited activations, standard with Steam.
Steam Cloud gives you 100MB per game that support the feature and 2GB of screenshot storage. Additionally I can back them up using other cloud services.
Automatic updates, Steam updates all content as soon as it becomes available.
It's cool I guess but a bit crap with the adverts, looks completely out of place.
This device has about 4 times the performance of any hand-held console, will play all if not the vast majority of Android games.
Additionally it will have full access to my Steam library of 395 Games playing at maximum settings streaming from my High-End PC that I built myself.
