Article just completely flawed from point one

Xbox 360 GPU "Xenos" has 48 Unified Shaders and is not based on X1800 XL (that GPU has pipelines) so the article is 100% wrong on that regard.

8GB super fast DDR4, 1st DDR4 system memory is not even used in PCs yet and 2nd they'd just use GDDR5.

Point two "IBM’s Cell is a beast of a thing, and of the most sophisticated processors you’ll find in consumer electronics."

If its gonna have 8 cores, 8GB and HD 8800 its gonna cost beyond $500

if they cheap out with a 8600M or something like that its gonna be dead in no time, realistically Online/ Gaikai is the only hope for Consoles now.

PC already has 4096 Unified Shaders on AMD HD 7990 and by the looks of it HD 8970 will have 2560 Unified Shaders.

By the time NXB and PS4 will be out PC GPU with over 1024 Unified Shaders will cost less than $200 and Next Gen c...

3 reasons for developers

Its free to develop on Android
There is 100s Millions of Smartphone owners now
Development cycles are weeks or months not years

2 reasons for consumers

Fun games on the go
Cheap so little risk if they're crap

It will also have 8GB SSD and 800GB HDD, you see a pattern with this article, all these 8s LOL

I'm saying its gonna be something like: AMD A8, 4GB RAM, and HD 7000 series GPU oh and basic Windows 8

Steam and a web browser of your choice go beyond anything on Consoles

Nah this is BS

The Dev submitted a Pre-Gold version to Steam and they told Valve to pull it.

Its fine don't see why people are pissed
Its gonna push graphics

All Nvidia cards GeForce 400 onwards support DirectX 11
All AMD cards Radeon HD 5000 onwards support DirectX 11

So what's the problem?

1317d ago 1 agree0 disagreeView comment

For me the games that will push graphics on PC technically are:

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2
Dead Island: Riptide
Arma 3
Battlefield 4
Crysis 3
Metro: Last Light
Star Wars 1313
Watch Dogs

Games that I think are going to look beautiful:

Bioshock Infinite
Dead Island: Riptide
Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs
Arma 3
Battlefield 4
Beyond: Two Sou...

Many rumours are saying

AMD Fusion APU
HD 6000 Mid-range

Well my less than 960 cores or less statement was redundant

"wrong terminology" not quite sure, originally when AMD pioneered this technology they coined it Unified Shader Architecture.
Nvidia Called them Cuda Cores for years now, they have been referred to as cores for a long time. Only recently have I seen them referred to has Stream Processors

PC are defiantly already beyond the next generation, its impossible for Microsoft or Sony to get...

Chances are both the PS4 and NXB will have

AMD Fusion Chips probably A8s
4GB of RAM
HD 6000 series GPU with less than 960 cores or less

PC is already beyond the next generation

Intel Core i7s
8GB/16GB is now becoming the standard
HD 7990 got 4096 Cores

Guys you can look forward to all this now, Its Called PC

Equally as credible as the info you've provided

If the WiiU has E6760 which you say it does then it is based of AMD Radeon HD 6670 (codename Turks) and will feature 480 Unified Shaders, ten times that of the Xbox 360.

Your sources claims

"PowerPC architecture. Three cores (fully coherent).
3MB aggregate L2 Cache size.
core 0: 512 KB, core 1: 2048 KB, core 2: 512 KB"

Just madness. Show me a Cachin...

Everyone knows Bulldozer (even AMD but they'll never admit it) was a disaster like out of Movie. Piledriver is a much need improvement. however, Sandybridge owns it nevermind Ivybridge and in April Haswell.

The issue I have with these statements is why isn't every PS3 game 1080p, why has every game on PC since 2007 looked better, why is there still instances where Xbox 360 looks better.

Seems to me Sony is desperately trying to stretch PS3 beyond the grave because lets face it this Gen should be dead by now or at least by the end of 2013.

19 times faster is a bit out there

But the GPU, if it is AMD Radeon E6760 (Mobility) then its basically AMD Radeon HD 6670. This has 480 Unified Shaders.

10 times the Shaders of Xbox 360 (Xenons, which was a prototype HD 2000 series), so that plus architecture improvements over the years it could be close to 19 times.

I can't see the CPU being worse than the Cell or Xenon its 2012 the older consoles where released in 2005/2006

If it isn't Flash its HTML5 which means that YP did not remake their site for IE on 360

HTML5 works on all browsers

@ Mocat YouTube can be viewed without Flash, again HTML5

If at the minimum system requirements the game does not look better than consoles then Ubi is doing it wrong

HD 3870 and 8800 GTX are beyond the performance of PS3 and 360 all you have to do is go back to 2007 and compare the games.

That being said, I'm sure i'll be able to max this out with my RIG :)

Intel Core i5 2500k @ 4GHz
Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 @ 1.1GHz/6GHz
