    PS5 Coming at the End of 2020 According to Analyst: High-Spec Hardware for Under $500

    Trumpstyle said: BraLoD said: 18GB Ram? It's 9x 32-bit controllers at 16Gbps speed ..........aaaaaand we're done. Gddr controllers come in 64bit chunks. The only weird setup would be 8 2GB gddrams and 2 1GB gddrams. That doesn't make sense at all, using different memory types is just an unneccessary hassle to deal with with a measly 12% increase in size. Why do...

I know this idea came up in other forums for no reasons or explanations given, but it is just about the dumbest thing you can do. Let me just finish this topic by stating that a separate ray tracing...

    Pemalite said: RedGamingTech is not an outlet I would take seriously. They waffle on about every single possible rumor, nuance and speculation and often try to assert it as fact and tend to favor AMD over Intel and nVidia. DevUnits usually try to mimick the final target as reasonably as possible with whatever generic PC technology is available at the time. In the case of the PS5...

Since we have absolutely no clues about yields (we don't even know on what exact process these thingies will be made), I find it very, let's call it courageous, to argue with wafer allocations. ...

    EricHiggin said: 25:00 is where he talks about XBSX specifically. He uses 56 cu's for it's GPU and ends up around 420mm2 for the APU size. The 40CU PS5 die is rumoured to be around 310-320mm^2. It is unlikely those additional 16-20 CUs would take 90-100mm^2 (assuming a fifth gddr6 controler) in the XSX. It's still a guessing game in the end. ...

    Iranian General Killed by US Attack

There is no reason at all to use such an awkward solution, every additional bus interface adds unnecessary problems to your design.

    In Theory: How SSD Could Radically Change Next-Gen Games Beyond Faster Loading (Digital Foundry Video)

    in Gaming Discussion on 28 December 2019

    HollyGamer said: 1.Star Citizen .. less pop in and better long distant view 2.Spiderman Fast traveling .. 1. Pop in and LOD troubles are tightly coupled with cpu performance, NOT with ssd 2. Spiderman profits a lot from more memory and much better cpu than from ssd. It's cool to have an ssd, but it would help absolutely nothing without the cpu and memory upgrades. ...

    The Rise of BS - Star Wars Epi 9 SPOILERS

    in Movies Discussion on 28 December 2019

    So reading through this, I take it that The movie "The Rise of Skywalker" is named like this because: a) Nobody "rose" b) There is no Skywalker c) Just before going to print, somebody with a working brain cell (apparently rare in writing this movie) noticed the problem. So they added the girl's "I'm a Skywalker" line. Does that sum it up? ...

    2080 Max Q stronger than XSX/PS5 (Allegedly)

    haxxiy said: The core clock for the Gonzalo chip being tested in Taiwan is reported as being half of that, or 1.6 GHz, after all. A gpu clock of 1600MHz (16Gbit/s ram) is considerably higher than the 1100MHz (12Gbit/s ram) of 2080 Max Q. Also if you actually placed this laptop on your lap, you'd get serious burn marks on your legs..... Anybody who thinks a 80W laptop outperforms...

    Rumor:PS5 & Anaconda Scarlet GPU on par with RTX 2080, Xbox exclusives focus on Cross gen, Developer complain about Lockhart.UPDATE: Windows Central said Xbox Anaconda target 12 teraflop

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 December 2019

    DonFerrari said: Makes almost 0 sense that it would need 18CUs to match PS4 for compatibility on a 40CU, that would mean the new console would have power about PS4Pro (which is 2.25x stronger than base PS4). With XSX being 4x more powerful than X1X (and seems like GPU about 2x as powerful) then PS5 being a PS4Pro level machine would be something so weak that it would need to sell at 199...

    DonFerrari said: Well a 30USD cost for 25% performance would be an easy expense for me =p But looking at the size of XSX when the control is near it (much smaller than the original xbox and little bigger than X1S) I don't think PS5 will be much smaller (if so the devkit is just much much much bigger than retail version). Well if you intend to sell 100mio consoles, that's a...
