    It's happening!

    Woohoo, finally! You made my day, thank you!

    Still a few months before insider-to-masses happens though right? I haven't been an insider in years, so can't remember the delay.

    Also nice that the Xbox One S gets a similar treatment.

    It depends on the feature from my experience. But yeah, good to see the One S also getting the upscaling support for that resolution. Hopefully it gets to the general public sooner.

    OH even Microsoft said over 360 is more powerful then ps3, if it was a fact ps3 is more powerful they would sued up the ass, but good thing, its just a made fact



    ""With Sony if they do hit the specs which they've said they'll have there's a debate, there's a couple of categories where they outdo us, there's several categories where we outdo them. On balance I think most people who study the space will tell you our system is slightly more powerful then theirs from a hardware standpoint.."

    Seems my comment dissipated.

    Claims made by Microsoft/Sony/Nintendo in reference to their own and their competitors hardware capability should always be taken with a grain of salt.

    They have a financial driven bias to shine their own hardware in the best possible light, whilst minimizing their competitors advantage.

    I.E. The power of the cloud, blast processing and so on.

    your whole argument is highly subjective, and not backed by any facts. I can go to beyond3d which i believe many developers and knowledgable people post, and they will say WII U exclusives don't look like anything 360/ps3 couldn't do, and not more technically impressive then 360/ps3 games does that mean they don't know what here talking about? and you are smarted then everyone else. you're not even a developer, so my point still stands. it a pointless comparison especially when you are comparing cartoony games vs realistic games so your computation budget differently . generally which exclusive looks better will go down to bias, just look at the SOTC vs BOTW thread.



    So despite almost every port running worse on Wiiu developers didn't struggle with the Cpu? lets just make the old excuse of shit port or lazy developer, that commonly used by people being hurt about there favorite console running the game inferior to another.



    I don't care if you think it is highly subjective.

    Never once have I claimed that a WiiU exclusive doesn't look like it couldn't run on an Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.

    Claiming I am not a developer is an assertion, do you have evidence for that?

    When did I compare cartoony and realistic games? I am not comparing the games themselves, but rather the underlying technology.

    We have already established that the WiiU's CPU is not it's strong point. You are making this argument out to be something it is not.

    on 07 February 2018

    we don't have proper documentation of the wiiu gpu, and looking at real world results, i dont see how most agmes no showing in advantges, infact a few games ran lower resolution proves the wiiu gpu is a step up.

    on 07 February 2018

    We do know the WiiU is a Very-Long-Instruction-Word based Radeon graphics processor, so we can draw comparisons to the other GPU's in that family using a similar ISA.

    As for games not showing advantages... Keep in mind for a long time that Call of Duty not only performed worst on the Playstation 3, it looked worst, it ran at a lower resolution than the Xbox 360 counterpart... That is despite the higher theoretical performance ceiling the Playstation 3 offered.

    You can have the best hardware in the world, but if it's capabilities are not appropriately utilized, then it's pointless.

    on 08 February 2018

    the thing is ps3 had clear disadvantages, if it was clearly superior it wouldn't have those problems, in the end people who had a 360 enjoyed the best experience in most games, and thats all that matters when comparing hardware.

    on 08 February 2018

    Indeed the Playstation 3 does have some disadvantages.

    But that doesn't mean it isn't the platform that is technically superior in terms of capability.

    It just means, the games that are ported to the Playstation 3, that suffer a reduction in performance and image quality are shit ports as they aren't leveraging the hardware capabilities appropriately.

    on 08 February 2018

    i wont call them shit ports, , it's more like ps3/wiiu were hardware thats not as good as 360, if the hardware is superior in noteworthy way most developers will get there games run better, that never happened ,it just means each hardware has a disadvantage and advantages, and if you want the hardware that runs games best which is all that matters in the end, it's 360.

    on 08 February 2018

    Playstation 3 did eventually have games that ran better than the Xbox 360 version.
    It wasn't common. But it did happen.

    And WiiU has games that not only look better than the Xbox 360 version, but run better.
    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-need-for-speed-most-wanted-wii-u-face-off

    on 10 February 2018

    that need for speed was a minuscule upgrade.

    on 11 February 2018

    It was still an upgrade.

    on 12 February 2018

    No one in their right mind would assume that the WiiU was some kind of technical marvel that was capable of generationally-more complex visuals.

    It is certainly more efficient.

    It's still more capable than the Xbox 360/Playstation 3 when games are made it's way. But a generation leap it is not.

    on 12 February 2018

    i wouldn't consider it any leap at all.

    on 12 February 2018

    and almost every 360 port thats better then wiiu doesn't count because of the shit port excuse, but once there is a upgrade, hey look it counts.

    on 12 February 2018

    One of the biggest and most annoying limitations for Developers last generation was DRAM or lack thereof.

    The WiiU rectified that to a degree compared to the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

    on 12 February 2018

    It really doesnt matter, wiiu the whole gen ran games worse then 360 because of the cpu, it even had 3 games run at lower resolution, superior hardware runs mots games better.

    on 12 February 2018

    * Superior hardware that is on the market long enough so that developers have ample time to learn.

    * Has a large enough marketshare to make the financial investment and time feasible to port games over in a high quality state.

    * Actually takes advantage of all the platforms various nuances.

    The Playstation 3 wasn't getting great ports until years into the generation despite it's "superior hardware". - I think that's the point you continue to gloss over.

    on 12 February 2018

    superior hardware doesn't really need that, it just runs games better, even after all the years 360 games usually ran technically demanding games better then ps3, but we''agree to disagree.

    on 12 February 2018

    what you are describing is hardware that has advantages and disadvantages, and to the developers that got the best results on 360 that was the superior hardware for that game.

    on 12 February 2018

    Are you trying to assert that the Xbox 360 is superior to the Playsation 3 on a technical level?

    on 15 February 2018

    I said they both have there advantages, and disadvantages, depending on what the game required each console can be superior to one another. but like its highly debatable, ps3 being superior is not a fact.

    on 15 February 2018

    only fact there is, is 360 ran most games better, if you wanted most games running better, the fact is 360 was superior.

    on 15 February 2018

    Having advantages/disadvantages is a given.
    The Xbox 360 also had disadvantages.

    But trying to assert that the Xbox 360 is technically superior to the Playstation 3 is ludicrous.

    I am not going to play this insane game any longer. Haha

    on 15 February 2018

    why don't post at beyond3d most developers have the same opinion.

    on 15 February 2018

    acrtually many developers think 360 is superior the important is nobody says its a fact

    on 15 February 2018

    Why would I bother with Beyond3D?
    I am involved in other circles.

    well i'm just pointing out 360 being superior is not absurd as you think because even developers share that thought, even a game developed leading on ps3, sees very little downgrade on 360, as hardware it ran games better which would qualify as superior hardware in my book, but every has there opinion on the matter.

    6 days ago

    It's not an opinion.
    It's a fact that the Playstation 3 was technically superior.

    Especially once you start leveraging Iterative Refinement on Cell.

    its not a fact, just stop it. if developers can say its not more powerful, that makes it not a fact, your opinion is not fact.

    You are throwing allot of assertions out there without knowing all the facts.
    How do you know I am not a developer?
    How do you know I am not a hardware engineer?

    Have you seen my credentials? You can try and assert your logical fallacies all you want, but they are just that.

    And I won't just "stop it" this is my wall. I will say whatever I desire within the confines of the sites rules.

    If you don't like it. Take a hike.

    The Xbox 360 is not as powerful as the Playstation 3. That is a fact. Not opinion. Fact.

    The fact I am even having this discussion in 2018 is stupid, it is ludicrous.

    5 days ago

    what makes your word better then other developers. I really doubt you are developer btw, but yea its not a fact, if it was . a fact people that actually worked with the hardware wouldn't say 360 is better,

    https://www.theguardian.com/technology/gamesblog/2006/dec/07/ps3vsxbox360

    5 days ago

    Hilarious. An article from 2006... A time where developers were still coming to grips with the hardware?

    Besides even the article you posted states (And I quote!)
    "On paper, PS3 has more raw processing grunt than Xbox 360"

    It even goes on to state: "In essence the two systems are actually fairly closely matched in terms of graphics."

    And that's just the GPU. Once we start bringing the CPU into the equation, the Playstation 3 beats the Xbox 360.

    Oh no. You may have won this debate. /sarcasm.

    Come back with something that actually properly backs up your claims or where you can show that you have a low-level understanding of both sets of hardware.

    And whether you think I am a developer or not is ultimately irrelevant. I am not obligated to justify myself to appease some random person on the internet... Because to be blunt... I don't give a shit what you or anyone else thinks.

    5 days ago

    One developer has publicly (although anonymously) stated that Xbox 360 - in games programming terms - is the better machine as the GPU is more powerful, providing greater pixel and vertex processing horsepower. Do you concur at all? Is this really what it all comes down to?

    did you miss that part? ro about another developer

    https://www.giantbomb.com/forums/general-discussion-30/game-developer-states-ps3-is-not-more-powerful-tha-242073/

    never mind that the original article blitz games, actually got better results on 360 despite working on the strength of each ssytem

    At Blitz our cross platform technology enables us to develop simultaneously for both systems and spend our time playing to the strengths of each.

    5 days ago

    but you are right one, despite 360 running most games better the whole gen basically, and developers saying 360 is better, ps3 is more powerful is a fact, just laughable , i would bet my house you never worked on any console.

    5 days ago

    Perhaps if you were comparing the complete platform rather than a specific component you might actually be onto something.

    The GPU doesn't do anything without the rest of the system you know.

    5 days ago

    I'm actually not seeing this cpu advantage, almost every game ran on 360 better, and the most technically demanding cpu wise were open world games, and they all ran on 360 better the whole gen.

    5 days ago

    You aren't going to convince me otherwise with such a poor argument and even poorer evidence to back it up.

    4 days ago

    you can think what ever you want the fact remains 360 ran most games better the whole gen, GPU showed a bigger advantage in ports then ps3 cpu, evn when tailored for ps3, 360 handled with no problem, microsoft, the developers, which made those comments early on in the genration where in fact right.

    4 days ago

    Towards the end of the generation... The games had an advantage on the Playstation 3.

    3 days ago

    no they didn't even towards the end of the generation most games ran better on 360. it was till rare for a ps3 version to be better, and if it was, it was only slightly.

    3 days ago

    In your opinion.

    3 days ago

    i can'r even think of one ps3 game where it had a big advantage against the 360 version, even when ps3 was lead.

    3 days ago

    Just because you can't think of it... Doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

    For example... L.A. NOIRE.

    And now you need to ask yourself... Why it's better on Playstation 3.

    1 day ago

    thats one game, with a very small advantage in frame rate that targeted ps3 to it's best yet 360 handled it well, while ps3 had trouble just hanging with 360 in most ports that didn't even target 360 specifically.

    1 day ago

    You are missing the point entirely.

    1 day ago

    what point? that 360 just runs games better period.

    The fact I have to essentially spell it out is a little disconcerting.

    February is going to be a little different. I've decided to skip the Titan V, for now, and keep most of what I have. The Two Titan Xp's, 64GB DDR4, i9 7920X. I'm only adding the H500P Mesh White Tower, a 2TB SSD, and getting slightly less stacked mobo.



    September is where I'll drop some serious cash again, moving to whatever Intel CPU is the fastest (with most cores), 64GB of additional RAM, and, whatever NVIDIA may have that's faster than the Titan Xp and ISN'T the Titan V.

    Titan V is so purty. But I personally don't believe it's worth the extra dollarydoo's over a pair of Titan XP's.

    I'm going in the opposite direction to you though. I'm going smaller, more energy efficient... And get a massive NAS happening with about 30 Terabytes of storage.

    Energy prices are trending towards 50' cents per kwh...
    So a 65w CPU and a beefy GPU in an ITX case with a custom water loop is what I am doing right now... And is all I need for 1440P.

    Plus my needs have changed, less time on the computer, more time on the dirt bike and the Gym. :)

    This year seems to be more iterative improvements rather than big shakeups on the tech front anyway.

    2019 could get more interesting as most manufacturers should be on 10nm/7nm by then.

    on 27 January 2018

    Agreed. 2018 is a "tick" year. With them figuring all of the Spectre stuff out, and GDDR6/DDR5 in the pipeline, the real business (tock) starts with 2019.

    on 27 January 2018

    Hoping DDR5 brings some big bandwidth gains to be honest... Mostly for the APU gains.

    Navi, GDDR6, Zen 2, DDR5, Cascade Lake, Ice Lake... Not sure what nVidia has up it's sleeve.

    Build is complete! Although I'm getting the 7980XE in Feb, I can't lie, while the 7920X is a wonderful chip, me needs them 18 cores! :D

    Yeah yeah. Rub it in why don't you? Hahaha

    Would love the 7980X, but that is slightly out of my price range. :P

    on 08 October 2017

    Yeah, outside of major crunch applications, I'll probably feel the burn of that purchase soon after. :P

    on 08 October 2017

    Here is hoping Coffee Lake makes Intel take a second look at pricing. It's made the 7640x, 7740X and 7800X a bad buy... So there is allot of room for correction in that entire lineup.

    on 08 October 2017

    At what point do you start buying server chips.
    AMD's Epyc 7551P is ~2100 USD, 32 cores, 64 threads (though the clock speeds are not there).

    on 11 October 2017

    I have actually asked him about Server chips once before. :P

    For me though it really depends on price/performance... And usually Xeons aren't always there in that aspect.

    Some Opterons have been though... I was running Opteron 152 on Socket 940 back in the day, she was a beast.

    In regards to Epyc though, I think CGI prefers Intel chips due to their clockrates and single-threaded capabilities... Plus he will be going for the 18-core chip which AMD doesn't have a real competitor for.

    Epyc is certainly a multi-threaded monster though.

    Once I retire this rig I will be getting a low-clocked low-powered 10-core Xeon to drop into it to use for a bunch of servers, the chips are coming down in price ($200 AUD) as supply is exceeding demand on this older platform.

    on 11 October 2017

    I figured as much, though I felt it was still worth mentioning.

    What are your thoughts on the upcoming Vega SSG?

    on 11 October 2017

    It's about time. Only been waiting 12+ months... When it was rumored to use the Fiji chip. Haha

    Not a consumer/gamer card though, but she looks impressive.

    Waiting on Navi personally... CGI will probably jump over to Volta.

    on 11 October 2017

    All at a low price of 7000 USD.
    Hopefully that is where AMD can recoup Vega's development costs, because it won't be from gaming.

    I really want to see where they take the concept in the future; and benchmarks, of course.

    on 11 October 2017

    Yep, waiting on the first Volta Titan to release, now. No more GPU buys till then.

    Oh and server-based PCs will come when my budget allows me to build a monster of that type, as well. :P
