"The PlayStation 4 may be a wondrous next gen console and perhaps the only one capable of 60 FPS/1080p resolution at the moment, but there are still some things we don't know about it."
thats good i wish them the best of luck.
Why can't they tell us the official speed! !!!!
I thinking that the speed is not "fix" i bet that the developers can raise or lower the speed also use more or less cores according to what the developer wants, some of the cerny gravy
It definitely has a maximum... I'm sure they have the ability to dial down some cores in order to accelerate others (as all modern processors do), but it would be pretty easy to give as a base clock and boosted clock speed if they wanted to. It's also be easy to give us a "maximum" speed to deceive the stupids, but for some reason they want to keep it guarded.
I sure that it's got a max speed but it appears that the devs can ramp it up or down. Just another example of the advanced knowledge that Sony has over the competition in hardware design.
@MeWhy you can do that on pretty much all AMD and Intel processors. But yes, all hail Sony.
I know right! The Xbox One is 1.75ghz on the same CPU as the PS4, so is the X1's CPU faster? The GPU in the PS4 has a much higher shader core count than X1's but it only runs 800mhz compared to the Xbox One clock speed of 853mhz, so the Xbox One's GPU is not as powerful but faster than PS4's (We know that), But we still can't compare the CPU's? TELL US WHAT THE F%#kIN CLOCK SPEED IS!
@GUTZnPAPERCUTZ Here : http://www.neogaf.com/forum... Satisfied?
IMT558 Thanks! Why the downvotes though? Because I said the X1's GPU is faster? lol it's fact, just know that the GPU is more powerful and that's what matters, god I hate fanboys!
@GUTZnPAPERCUTZ,when someone answer to you, you should try reading posts and links before posting a comment. PS4's GPU is faster...
The thing is, with Indies proclaiming how powerful the ps4 is, Their games are hardly demanding to the system, so they obviously aren't going to encounter a ceiling with their art style and the amount theyll have on screen etc, but if Red Barrel (outlast) said this, I'd be impressed. I'm sure you guys know what I mean lol
@ minimur12 But didn't the Outlast Devs say something similar though?
because they are afraid of the PC.
@Volkama: They wanna keep it guarded because if they release the speed, everyone will start comparing it to the XBone and PCs, when in reality there are a lot more factors to how fast a computer is other than the clock speed.
Straight from this article, learn to read before you complain. "When asked to confirm the 1.6 GHz clock speed of the PS4′s CPU (which can be scaled up to 2.75 GHz according to several reports), Read more at http://gamingbolt.com/helld...
The PlayStation 4 may be a wondrous next gen console and perhaps the only one capable of 60 FPS/1080p resolution at the moment... Facepalm. If that doesn't scream biased, IDK what does.
I don't know why you consider that as a biased comment, it's called FACTS. You could at least provide FACTS proving the statement wrong
Forza 5= 1080p 60 frames Fifa 14 = 1080p 60 frames NBA 2k14 = 1080p 60 frames.
Forza 5: Heavily reduced graphically from E3 build. NBA and Fifa? They're both cross gen titles than aren't exactly graphically intense. So yes the statement isn't exactly correct. It would be more correct to say that PS4 is far more CONSISTENT at maintaining 1080/60.
Not only did Forza get the graphics reduced, but also there is no day/night cycle, no weather, pre-baked lighting, cardboard crowd, the least amount of cars and tracks in the franchise....
@4logpc That's soooo many!! I can count those in one hand!! and the rest arent even 1080p!! Spectacular!!
@4logpc : "Forza 5= 1080p 60 frames Fifa 14 = 1080p 60 frames NBA 2k14 = 1080p 60 frames." Forza 5 Huge downgrades to achieve 1080p/60fps. NBA2k14 Worse AA than PS4 version. FIFA I don't know...
Both consoles suffer from the same limitations. Whiney graphics and less features or all the features and less shiny graphics. Both consoles are one in the same
You guys are out of your freakin minds. Seriously, WTF is wrong with all of you?? Forza just "doesn't count", because you guys all decided it's not graphical intensive enough? Sports games also don't count, either? This article is about a crappy top-down indie game that is also on the Vita, and it's ok to brag about it being 1080p/60? Seriously guys. You are taking the fanboyism crap on this website to a whole new level.
Now that were on this subject and all sony fanboys are saying that forza dont count or fifa nor nba 2k being 1080/60 then my question is. What PS4 game can any of you truly show me that its graphic intensive and (obviously indie games don't count) and COD ghost its not graphic intensive, just development time was the key reason, that run's at 1080p and STEADY 60 fps to prove your point? If any could be kind enough to reply!!! If not then shut up and enjoy your games! Because I am! 😊
PS4 Fifa 14 = 1080p 60 frames NBA 2k14 = 1080p 60 frames COD Ghost = 1080p 60 frames Diablo III: Reaper of Souls = 1080p 60 frames Dying Light = 1080p 60 frames Flower = 1080p 60 frames Killzone: Shadow Fall MP = 1080p 60 frames Resogun = 1080p 60 frames Tomb Raider: DE = 1080p 60 frames Trine 2 = 1080p 60 frames Contrast = 1080p 60 frames Warframes = 1080p 60 frames Blacklight = 1080p 60 frames And im sure im forgetting a few but I can play the list game too Fact is the PS4 is the more capable system, period! everything else is just fanboys spewing their FUD and not accepting reality
So stating FACTS is "biased" now? Lol. Wow.
Except you know it's not stating facts... there's at least 3 games on the X1 at 1080p/60FPS so there goes your "fact"
Here is a FACT Racing games and sports games aren't known to set graphical benchmarks. The spinning and damage control in some of you guys amazes me.
Come on Jack We all know the X1 can do 1080/60, heck the PS3 and 360 can do it, but not at the same graphical level as the PS4, the PS4 is a far more capable machine, so anything the X1 can do the PS4 can do better, hence why you see people say that the PS4 is far more capable of delivering the 1080p/60fps games. Why cant MS fanboys get that? Are you people that dumb? Come on, stop playing these phony games.
Why would a developer be talking about how a console runs any other game but theirs? They wouldn't know about getting Forza, Fifa, or NBA 2k14 up and running. I read that comment and assume he's talking about their experience on PS4 with their game, and that he's not sure they could get it running as well on XB1. The existence of a power gap between the two consoles is already pretty well documented. Could he be biased? Sure, but it's not a foregone conclusion. *shrug* My two cents.
That line was written by Gamingbolt, not a quote from the developer.
Ah ok. That's what I get for not reading the article. Well, biased journalism is a fact of life, and not just in gaming. It sucks, but it's what sells.
Forza FIFA and NBA are all small linear games. What do you people not get? Run a graphically impressive open world game at 1080p 60fps then claim power.
@ 4logpc Actually, it's more like your post screaming "butthurt".
How is that biased if anyone with a decent mind knows its true
Helldivers doesn't look like it would stress an Xbox 360 so it's hardly groundbreaking news that its 1080p/60fps on the PS4. Wake me up when a dev like Naughty Dog says the same thing.
"and perhaps the only one capable of 60 FPS/1080p resolution at the moment" lol. Oh boy.
Can't wait for this game, but I'm sure even a 360 could run it at 1080p/60fps.
30fps is ok to.....(see The Order 1886 threads) and really everybody gets it , the ps4 IS A POWERHOUSE ! im glad , i'll get one , maybe it saved Sony (a good thing) but do we need "news" of that fact 50 times a day?
for a game looking like that then they better be hitting 1080p/60fps.
At the ready! Let's watch these pawns do battle for large companies they have some imaginary allegiance with. Because internetz.
Cool. That means, a bright and shiny future for the PS4 :D
Just leave em be, these sony fanboys will never understand
I'm sorry but I could care less about it running 1080p/60fps , it looks like it could run the same on the PS3. I'm sure it will be a fun game, but not something that screams buy me on my PS4, maybe I'll play it on the PS3 or Vita.
Not sure why people are saying this would get 1080p/60fps on PS3 and 360. Renegade Ops is a similar title and did not. Great game too.
Because uhhhhhhh cpu plays a much lesser roll than gpu when it comes to games.
"The PlayStation 4 may be a wondrous next gen console and perhaps the only one capable of 60 FPS/1080p resolution at the moment..." OK...I have been accused of being a Sony fanboy, but this comment is just stupid. 60fps and 1080p could be done on last-gen consoles (example: Wipeout HD)...it entirely depends on effects, anti-aliasing, etc. I'm so tired of this noobish idea that resolution and fps are the only two graphical considerations. The One can do 1080p/60fps...it just may need to make some sacrifices in order to achieve it that the PS4 wouldn't. Similarly, not all PS4 games will run at 1080p/60fps. Some devs will choose to use more horsepower for AA and the like.
of course a game that looks like a ps2 game it's definitely not going to suffer by the under-clocked cpu speed, it is a bottleneck of the system, the reason sony has still kept the official clock speed a secret. knack killzone driveclub those games actually look next gen and struggle to meet the 60fps mark. even tomb raider & bf4 struggles at 60fps, it runs at 40-50fps at most & bf4 is sub hd. you want a real 1080p 60fps console then get a steambox. at a simular price you can get a steambox almost 1tflops more than ps4.
There's cieling somewhere. Why is infamous second son and The order 30FPS. Why is Shadowfall's single player 45FPS? Why does Tomb Raider have dips in to the 40s? Why is assassin's creed 30FPS? Why is BF4 900p? Developers generally dodge this question. My theory is that they need more time to optimize their engines around PS4's hardware. Its only year 1 so this is expected but moving forward more games should be 1080p 60FPS. Another thing is those pop ins. In bf4 its acceptable ( buildings,trees, bushes pop in) but in a medium-close range game like killzone that UNACCEPTABLE, textures quickly raise resoloution when getting close to them, certain meshs just AREN'T THERE until you get within a certain range. Its really stupid and i hope this pop in doesn't continue.
These developers make me laugh with ridiculous statements like this designed to flame bait gamers. Dont fall for it people, every piece of hardware made has a ceiling and it will be reached. All this does is cause friction between gamers and their consoles and makes the developer look like a child. Here's an idea for a story, show us your new game running and how great it looks and let gamers be the judge of your so called products.
Try saying this about the graphics processor. We all know the GPU is the most important in gaming for many years now We usually hear about bottlenecks from the GPU rather than the CPU. This is why in the PC scene you see ppl upgrading the GPU first before chaning their CPU or CPU+MOBO
