Once again seeking your technological knowledge; in terms of power/capability, how does Switch's CPU stack up against the Xbox 360's?

The Switch has the edge.

It is simply a more modern, more efficient design... Plus it's also Out-Of-Order Execution, Branch Tree Prediction, Branch Target Buffers, 3-way-superscaler speculative issue pipeline... Not to mention significantly better caches. (Speed+Latency+Size.)

It's a no brainer.

Plus the Ports reinforce that fact.

Microsoft/Sony tried to make up for PowerPC's deficiencies by taking Intel's approach with the Pentium 4... To give them a ton of clockspeed.

Thanks. I still don't know much about all this sort of thing but it interests me, I just find specs and tech stuff like Digital Foundry and Anandtech intriguing.

What was Rol's ban for?

The linked post obviously isn't accurate so I'm wondering what it was for.

Yeah. It bugged out on me and linked to a completely irrelevant post. It will be sorted in time.

But it was for his thread here:

Thanks. I think moderations for article comments always screw up like that actually.

on 28 September 2018

Do they? Apparently I don't ban all that often for article comments!

Is what it is I guess.

I was entertaining the idea of buying Pac-Man and Mrs. Pac-Man for the 15th time last night as I saw they were on sale on PSN for $1.50 each. Then I saw the files sizes: 834mb and 831mb respectively. They're both over 900mb on the XBO. The original Pac-Man ROM is 15kb! That's mental. I just looked it up, and the PS3 version of Pac-Man I have is a 100kb file. Is this because it's emulated? Made with Unity?

Probably higher quality audio sound bytes.

The original Pac-Man was using midi-files which was counted in mere bytes, whilst newer releases would be using full uncompressed, 7.1 audio.

A large chunk of data on the modern re-releases would also be thanks to higher sprite assets as well.
Pixel art is very small in comparison.

Thanks for the input. I came across others mentioning such things in doing a little googling, as well as the ideas Unity and/or emulation were playing a role, but still wanted your take. Whatever the reasons may be, those files are unnecessarily large imo.

I don't care what anyone says. Xbox customer support is awesome!

Microsoft's support has always been good... But once the RROD became a prominent issue, they had no choice but to build a service to what we have today. And props to them, it's a good selling point....

Was the Switch designed to Last?

TheMisterManGuy said: New generations are always important. As I said, there's always room for improvement. I agree that power did play a part in the successful launch of the PS4, but it wasn't the only factor. Smart marketing, key properties, and an attractive price point, all while being really the only next gen console worth buying made the PS4 a success at launch. Great.So we...
