Why does a game console need billions more transistors than an Itanium?
Everybody keeps saying this system chip is huge, I want to see a picture of it inside the XBone. I guess it's better late than never for XBone to actually talk about the internal workings of the hardware.
Well micro$oft didn't want to talk about it early because of the inferior hardware compared to the PS4. Now everyone knows that you have to pay 100.00 more and get less on the bone so why not talk about it?
you're credibility went out the window with the first $
What is the $ supposed to represent? That Microsoft wants money? If so, you should also say $ony. They both obviously do all of this for money. They're not just in this to provide you with games. It's a business. They're both, "something else", before they are gaming companies. Microsoft is a software company first. Sony is a consumer electronics co. first.
No, the $ is to represent the company's douchyness with the way they treat their consumers, how they go about their business practices, etc.
Oh, that's what it means. Thanks Thanato$DMC.
@ThanatosDMC If a $ represents douchyness and treating people poorly, then does that mean we should call you Thanato$DMC? Edit: bwahahahahaha oh LoveOfTheGame, you ninja!
^Same thing. $ = douchyness and treating people poorly Check my comment history for facts.
^ I think you mean fact$.
@NewWhiteFeather Lol! Bubbles for you!
The same manufacturer makes bigger chips for nvidia.. They have publicially stated yields are better then expected.. Its all bs by people wanting it to fail.. No proof to any of it
They told you size of it in the article 0_o Basically half of the VCR is heatsink, Bluray drive and non replaceable hard drive. http://thejetlife.com/wp-co... http://thejetlife.com/wp-co...
Thanks for the pics. Not too bad, but good lord man that is a huge fan. M$ said RROD my a$$ this next-gen.
Its designed to be on for 10 years... The bigger fan is way more efficient (on top of the entire chip)..More air, less noise
http://www.wired.com/gadget... I wouldn't say its "ginormous" seems pretty regular in size to me. Can anyone find any actual photos of what the heat sink looks like, mainly all you can see is just the fan. I understand it is big obviously but that still doesn't mean much if its a crappy heat sink. The Xbox 360 had a big enough heat sink at the time but it was really crappy and almost as thin as tin foil. So I am just wondering cause I can't find any picture right now myself. So thanks if anyone can find some for me. P.S. What the hell.. Look at those other designs. I think that Xbox One looks way better than the one they are using http://www.wired.com/images... . I like the little green strip that lights up and I love the actual pattern on the vents versus to what they are using now. Has a real classy vintage look to it that one. No idea why they didn't go with that design instead. Looks the best in my opinion.
According to some FCC Report, you will have to wait til mid Nov. or early dec. for that to happen.
Maybe something like this? http://img136.imageshack.us... or this? http://i.imgur.com/y4wkO2e.... http://i2.kym-cdn.com/photo...
Is "ginormous" a technical term?
Gaemz jurnolizm ¬_¬
A serious piece of engineering. Hard to produce now but the long term benefits will be huge once they bring it's costs down, shrink it and improve yields even further. It certainly explains why they need such a large heatsink and fan.
Size =/= Power Just because its "ginormous" (who was this written by, Roald Dahl!?) does not mean that it has all the power in the known universe and will become the next HeMan.
Yea, that's why as technology advances chips get bigger because size = power.
reverse your statement and you've struck gold.
Usually a bigger chip means more power consumption, which leads to more heat being produced. I hope this doesn't lead to another RROD.
Well that is my concern the heat sink seems big enough to address that but I can't find any actual images of what the heat sink itself looks like as far as how thick and how good it would be at dissipating heat. That is much more important than the actual size of it. I guess the 360 never had a fan directly on the the chip like that so that is definitely good. Still would like to see the heatsink though like the actual thing, not just the fan.
The X1 is gonna be a beast. What's crazy to me is that they never boasted about it. It'll be years before we see the true potential of the X1.
X1 isn't a beast,lol. It's a little Bear. PS4 is a Grizzly.
We see potential now of the x1. It can run 1080p 60fps on BF4 with 64 players. That's why xb1 demos the gamr at the shows. While PS4 cant
Wait... What?? My head exploded reading the first few lines of that and I had to wait till the next round to respawn. I thought EA was only using PC's and PS4's to display B4 at GamesCon
8 Jaguar Cores @1.6ghz 8GB DDR3 ram HD7790 (next gen? lol) 32MB ESRAM. Thats where the big comes in. Yo MS. it aint the size that matters. its how you use it ;) ALOT of X1 fanboys dont know what the hell their saying lol. Yeah, must be the same target demographics MS wants. The gullible, the naive, the ignorant or maybe those fooled by big jargon words. Like soccer moms and daytime tv informercials.
Kinda like how Sony fanboys believe that ps4 can compete with high end pcs yet complain when games like battlefield 4 run at 720p
Ps4 is weak towards PC and to be honest not much difference from xb1
