Is PS4 the Fastest Next-Gen Console?

People like software and people like hardware; some like style some like ability. Take the Xbox 360 vs. PS3, the Xbox 360 may have better looking games but the PS3′s Cell Processor is a lot stronger than the Xbox 360′s hardware. So what about the PS4 and Xbox One?

Speculation. wait for E3 LOL


Xbox one has eSDRAM (Enhanced Synchronous DRAM) the article has *SRAM*

Article made up od speculations and don't even have the facts right LOL

E3 is around the corner. All will be revealed then so speculation is pointless

JoGam1970d ago

It was already revealed.

bicfitness1970d ago (Edited 1970d ago )

Your denial is extraordinary. The specs are in the wild. They have been confirmed. PS3 > Xbox One, by a wide margin. Go read the Digital Foundry article, you buffoon.

To recap (PS4 is on the left):

1.8 TF > 1.2 TF (This is KEY, as the raw GPU power is +50%)

Bu-bu-but, the Cloud! Okay. I'll give you that one as the MS Cloud is powered by imagination. Like fairies and unicorns.

I'm sure that MS will have plenty of money-hatted "exclusives" (for a year until those contracts are up) for you to wet yourself at E3. So just stay low till then. And out of tech threads.

"PS3 > Xbox One, by a wide margin." In sales yes but I get the feeling you meant PS4.

Anyway, I think greenpowerz is broken. It's happened to some people here recently. Just don't be too hard on him.

Edit: I was a little hard on a user a while back and I think I embarrassed him so badly he started acting out. It's just not worth doing that to people.

OT: Yes the PS4 is the more powerful console. If you're into that sort of thing enjoy it.

bicfitness1970d ago (Edited 1970d ago )

Thanks Djinn. Correction: PS4> Xbone. But PS3 isn't that far off with the Xbone's gimped specs.

zebramocha1970d ago

@lostdjinn the ps4 is more powerful so stuff like this doesnt zap gpu resources.

ChiaPet1970d ago (Edited 1970d ago )

Let's be honest, most of us just read the articles and regurgitate terms we hardly understand (ie, TerraFlops) without actually taking into consideration the intricacies of hardware development.
On paper, the PS4 is a significantly powerful gaming machine that uses high bandwidth system memory and is rumored to have a decent GPU.
But that is not everything when it comes to hardware. There are special custom tweaks to hardware that the common person, or even average PC enthusiast, couldn't understand.
This is why I say that judgment should be reserved for the actual product rather than the raw specs.
But as it stands, basic clock speeds etc. point toward PS4 superiority though that could easily change due to the custom tweaks to hardware that Microsoft is doing.

Gildarts1970d ago (Edited 1970d ago )

Lol at DDR5 > DDR3
that is an opinion rather then a fact.
Truth is DDR3 sacrifices bandwidth for speed.
While DDR5 sacrifices speed for bandwidth but is in fact much slower.
they'll get the job done at roughly the same time.
PS4 fanboys don't know what they're talking about. You're just assuming higher number means it's better but it's not not in this case.

That 50% more power thing sounds like a lot, on paper. But in real life you won't see any difference. Halo 4 and Forza 4 on Xbox 360 looked better then most PS3 exclusives and yes forza 4 looks better then Gran Turismo 5 there is no arguing. Even though PS3 was supposed to be a lot more powerful, that was also on paper.

Also the GPU in the Xbox One was custom designed for the Xbox One and it cost them 3 billion dollars, While the PS4 has an off the shelf GPU.

If you Expect PS4 graphics to blow Away Xbox One graphics you're going to be disappointed

MRMagoo1231970d ago


You do realise that it is a myth that ddr3 ram is faster the gddr5 right ? I'm guessing you are just spouting bs you have read elsewhere on this site, even if there where more latency on the gddr5 it would be that small a difference that the gddr5 would perform a lot better anyway, and if you think a smaller than a millisecond of latency makes the ram so much slower what is your opinion on the magic cloud ms are trying to say is super powerful even if you live right next to a server you will get around 20 plus ms latency on cable Internet.

MasterCornholio1970d ago

The PS4 is more powerful than the Xbone1.


Motorola RAZR i

yesmynameissumo1970d ago

You've been waiting for E3 since 2009.

MRMagoo1231970d ago

whats another 4 or so years lmao

SCW19821970d ago

I swear this greenpowerz guy is a 12 year old kid who ignores straight facts when they are presented to him. The specs have been revealed already. They aren't hidden, those specs won't change come E3. You can have your preference all you like but turning a blind eye to the truth doesn't make the PS4 less powerful. PS4>XBOXONE. FACT!

dizzy741970d ago

And you dont have idea about RAM architecture so make dreams about botleneck 32MB XBone eSDRAM

TomOfAllTrades1970d ago (Edited 1970d ago )

You do realize that eSDRAM is still not going to punch above the PS4's weight right?

"Speculation. wait for E3 LOL"

Nope, it's fact that the PS4 is a better and faster machine, multiple analysis's have proven this, I don't understand why certain 'Fan-boy's' believe it to magically turn on and spring an extra TeraFlop out of thin air, it's not happening lol. Is it really that hard to accept it?

Drekken1970d ago

You would be the only kid on this site still stroking the xbox's fuzzy wall.

Clarence1970d ago (Edited 1970d ago )

Why would have to wait until E3 when the specs for both consols are all over the net. You must be a M$ employee.
Is your first name Arron last name Greenberg?

Mini05101970d ago

stfu. You are the one ignoring the facts

2009 - Wait for E3!
2010 - Wait for E3 guys! That's where the games are.
2011 - You'll see when E3 comes, i'm telling you.
2012 - Tons of games, all exclusive.Just wait for E3.
2013 - Just wait for 720.Microsoft won't dissappoint!
May 2013 - Just wait until the 21st, Microsoft will blow you away

Now we're back to waiting for E3 again? Don't you see a pattern here..? Severe case of battered wife syndrome with you guys.

Gimmemorebubblez1970d ago

Greenpowerz is in lala land. The Ps4 is more powerful.

PS. Has anyone seen Strongman, Green's opposite.

loulou1970d ago

strongman has been replaced by kratos kills, mariahelfutura and quite a few others.

on topic, looking at the specs on paper, the ps4 is more powerful without question.

but, do we need more of the same article wise on here? this could be classed as a duplicate... about the 100th duplicate though.

no name sites needing hits

ThatCanadianGuy5141970d ago

We are all Strongman and Strongman is all of us.
We are simply, strongmen.

Corpser1970d ago

Yes but it's sad the fastest next gen console only has a 1.8TF GPU, a $160 graphics card has that, barely mid range for today

Utalkin2me1970d ago

Whats sad is you felt the need to come in here and comment.

IRetrouk1970d ago (Edited 1970d ago )

It dosnt stop drive club, watch dogs, killzone and infamous from looking great though does it? Or knack for that matter.

dizzy741970d ago

Poor Corpser go bring me back your Xbone come on MS doggy

PraxxtorCruel1970d ago

And by that comment you've proved you're a Sony dog. Talk about backfire.

Gimmemorebubblez1970d ago

He could be a Nintendog Rflmao.

SpinalRemains1970d ago

On paper it is, but we do have to wait for real comparisons.

S2Killinit1970d ago (Edited 1970d ago )

xbox didnt have better 'looking games'
