Can't anyone just waterboard him until he tells us which console it'll look better on? Isn't there a module on it in the Journalism Degree? Wink

Anyway, kudos for his honesty, not so happy about him staying tight lipped on the complete story though.

Personally, I'd say he might have already given it away.

When he says
Quote:
especially one of them
in relation to being
Quote:
more powerful than we thought for a really long time

We know for a fact that Sony kept the full details of the specs secret from even the developers until the consoles announcement.
Specifically that the RAM was DDR5 and that there was 8GB, when developers had been informed it was only 4GB.

I suspect that particular detail is why Dave also zeroed in on it being the PS4.

It actually makes more sense for it to be the Xbox One he's speaking about being surprisingly powerful, since everybody has assumed it would be the weaker console for a long time.

That would be quite a shocker indeed.

It also makes sense because Microsoft just pushed out it's Mono driver, to the metal driver.

Plus the PS4 architecture is pretty straightforward so I dont know how there would be any hidden power there.

Either way Xbox wins though, because even if he's speaking about PS4 breing the superior version, it's still a win for Xbox when he says the difference will be small.

But if he actually means the Xbox version is better, then PS4 just got destroyed.

I'm trying to understand why in the world David Scammell wrote this article to be so subjective (it's not PS4). He is actually talking about XB1, Remember at E3 the XB1 game demos were running on very powerful pc dev kits. This is because the XB1 games will run like 780 GTX and 7990 Raedon quality. Thats why Ghost said, "One version will look like the PC".

The gamescom demo is running on a PC and you play with a PS4 (!) controller

Shortly after the two minute mark u can see that it is indeed running on a PC.

My guess is: PC > PS4 > Xbox One.

Erm... yes, they were running on very powerful PC's, but that does not directly translate into being 100% accurate of games running on final Xbox One hardware.
It's fairly common practice at shows like E3 to show console games running on PCs.

Both the Xbox One and PS4 are powered by very similar AMD/ATI GPUs and CPUs, hence why both are generally considered to be very similar. Though the PS4 has the edge, especially with the GPU.

In the case of the PS4, benefits are likely to come from the RAM, as DD5 is more suited to higher resolution textures (hence why just about all PC GPU's now come with DDR5).

The Xbox One, is (apparently) counting on Cloud processing to offload work off the CPU/GPU and this would be the likely source for improved graphics.
However, the benefits of Cloud processing are somewhat doubtful in the context of both latency and that developers cannot depend on it being available 100% of the time or even on all systems now that the console and it's games must be able to function offline.

Utterly ridiculous. The Xbox One GPU can compute 1.31 TFLOPS, the PS4 can compute 1.84 TFLOPS. There is no argument which has the more powerful GPU. To suggest that the Xbox One's GPU is comparable to a 7990 is insane. The 7990 registers 8.2 TFLOPS of raw compute power. That is literally over 6 times more powerful.
