    Ps4 @100mill shipped!

    in Sony Discussion on 31 July 2019

    Azelover said: I'm not one to downplay this great achievement, but do we know what kind of shipments this is?So, forgive me, but I'm not a hundred percent trusting of Sony's announced numbers.. You realise that Sony's (and anyone elses's) quarterly financial reports are not "Suggestions to the public"? Making false statements in a fiscal report is not a particularly good idea and...

    Ps4 @100mill shipped!

    in Sony Discussion on 31 July 2019

    DonFerrari said: There is no production of consoles that is shipped without a store requesting. On the contrary, that is not how it works. Consoles are manufactured in numbers that would eventually meet customer demands (customers in that sense are distributors/stores). So in this specific case, 3.2M PS4 consoles were manufactured last quarter, and shipped (in the very sense of...

    Ps4 @100mill shipped!

    in Sony Discussion on 30 July 2019

    zorg1000 said: DonFerrari said: Would be very unlikely to overship 1M this late on the life of the console. Seems more like they reduced the forecast to keep certainty they will exceed as they have all years. That makes no sense, you dont adjust a forcast down if you're currently meeting/exceeding your expectations. We roughly know how the PS4 is selling in NA...

    Sony is focusing on Hard-Core Gamers for PS5

    in Sony Discussion on 02 July 2019

    Pemalite said: Once you hit 1GB of used capacity on each chip, then you can only start filling up the 2GB chips... And this is when you switch from clamshell mode to non-clamshell mode on the 2GByte chips on both channels, putting the 1GByte chips onto high impedance. As you say, it is really very complicated implementing such shenanigans and I doubt they are going to implement...

    Sony is focusing on Hard-Core Gamers for PS5

    in Sony Discussion on 01 July 2019

    Pemalite said: From what I saw of Scarlett, it seems Microsoft will be using a mix of 2GB and 1GB chips, so we can assume 24GB is in for Scarlett... However, 8GB of that will only operate at half the bandwidth, so if Scarlett employs 14Gbps GDDR6 on a 256bit bus, then that last 8GB will be 224GB/s of bandwidth whilst the rest of the 16GB is 448GB/s.It does mean we are probably looking at...

    Sony Shareholder meeting: TLOU: 19m, GoW: 12m, infamous SS: 6m

    in Sales Discussion on 19 June 2019

    VAMatt said: Ka-pi96 said: mm? Does that mean "million million"? MM refers to a thousand thousand, as M is the Roman numeral for 1000.  MM was the standard way of indicating a million, as far as I knew, until the last decade or so.  I think most people just use a single M now.  I sometimes still use MM though.   I've never seen MM over here...

    Rumour: Sony's PS5 is definitely more powerful than Microsoft Project Scarlett

    in Sony Discussion on 18 June 2019

    Time critical stuff is always programmed in Assembly language. Other stuff might be, too, if you have talented "Hand Assemblers" in your code grouip. As compilers mature over time, less and less code is hand assembled. That rule applies to everything, not only consoles. Of course, writing in Assembler takes more time and is more error prone than simply using a high-level language, hence one...

    MS reveal of ballpark of Scarlett

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 June 2019

    DonFerrari said: But 12Tf is probably where the "majority" would expect both systems to hover about and would give the 4x gain of your calculation. Good luck with that. The new Radeon 5700XT is 9.75TFlops and draws 225Watt (probably a lot more with boost clock temporarily enabled). People want a console SoC with 12TFlop? That's 300W, not even counting the cpu which certainly...

    Rumour: Sony's PS5 is definitely more powerful than Microsoft Project Scarlett

    in Sony Discussion on 15 June 2019

    thismeintiel said: I expect this to be true. Sony is more willing to take a loss on HW, while I think MS is preparing for their xCloud/Gamer Pass future, so won't be quite as willing to take big losses on HW. The X kinda proved that. MS didn't want to take any loss, so priced it $100 more than the competition, even though it could have been their opportunity to mount a comeback. What...

    Rumour: Sony's PS5 is definitely more powerful than Microsoft Project Scarlett

    in Sony Discussion on 15 June 2019

    BraLoD said: If a new home console releases with multiple skus simultaneously, the stronger will be the one counted. No it won't. This gen, a 0.5TFlop (1.8 vs 1.3) difference made a noticeable difference in the end. With next gen, a 0.5TF difference will be almost unnoticeable (don't expect a higher difference than 0.5-1TFlop, as both fight within the same power envelope)....

    PS5: Leaked Design And Technology [RUMOUR]

    in Sony Discussion on 04 June 2019

    Pemalite said: Pretty much! I mean, if the APU chiplets were significantly smaller with like 8 CU's or less An absolute nightmare for consoles to even think about it. gpu Chiplets = higher price, run much hotter (the more chiplets, the hotter it gets), higher price. Probably more problems I haven't thought of, like higher price... A console has a price point which limits what...

    (UPDATE): AMD Unveil RX 5000 (Navi) with their new architecture design, Interview with Lisa SU, Ray Tracing detail on another SKU's variant, PCIe 4.0 help fast loading on PS5

    in Gaming Discussion on 27 May 2019

    Trumpstyle said: Both console will almost certainly be below 10 Teraflops, based on the gonzalo codenamn showing PS5 having a 1,8ghz navi gpu it will likely just have 32CU's with 2-4 disabled CU's giving 6,4-6,9TF. Xbox anaconda will probably have 40CU's but 4 disable for yield improvements so 36CU's clocked at 1,9ghz is my guess and will result in a 8,7TF gpu. Please stop...

    european election

    KungKras said: Voted for the Pirate Party, because I think they are the most likely to reverse EU's disastrous decision on copyright laws on the internet. I'd say that people overestimate the role of the European parliament. It's basically a "pension fund" for politicians that are offloaded by their country's parties. And since the UK Brexit nutjobs are leaving in less than half a...
