VERSUS! WiiU, Xbox Next [Xbox 720], Orbis [PS4] VS HD Twins

Forums - Gaming Discussion - VERSUS! WiiU, Xbox Next [Xbox 720], Orbis [PS4] VS HD Twins

I am bloody tired of anonymous noobs saying WiiU is less powerful than the HD twins. Several developers have said WiiU is significantly more powerful than the HD twins, because it is. Let's look at the specs of each platform, starting with WiiU:

Platform WiiU Xbox Next Orbis PS3 Xbox 360
Graphics Radeon HD 4870 Radeon HD 6670 Radeon HD 6670 Nvidia 7800GT ATI X1950
Processor Quad-core 3GHz 4 or 6-core AMD CPU AMD quad-core 2.9GHz 3.2GHz CELL Tri-core 3.2GHz
Memory n/a n/a n/a 512MB (system/graphics) 512MB GDDR3

The Memory Clock and Memory Interface are slightly higher for the 6670 but that's because it's a new card. In all other categories, the 4870 is clearly superior. Even if the Xbox Next is sporting two 6670s, the 4870 would still be able to hold it's own. The difference in quality would be about the difference between the GameCube and the Xbox 1.

Since we can conclude that the ATI X1950 is a faster card than the 7800GT, for the sake of the following comparison, we will compare the 4870 to the X1950.

As you can see, the Wii U's GPU is significantly more powerful than the Xbox 360, arguably the stronger of the HD twins graphics cards. These anonymous developers are just trolling. If the WiiU is "barely more powerful than Xbox 360 and PS3", what does that say about the Xbox Next and Orbis? Both of those platforms graphics cards are obviously weaker than the Wii U.

Essentially, what developers are saying is: Next Gen platforms are weaker than current gen. Well guess what, they're not. So fuck off anonymous developers.

EDIT: Comparison of ATI graphics

ehm... how do you know these specs?

There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.

He doesnt, he's just going by all the speculation threads have mentioned.

No, they didn't. However, these specs are based off of the rumor/speculation/what have you.

“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

- George Orwell, ‘1984’

it's more Central Park rather than ball park, however it's interesting none the less. I mean if people are allowed to post speculated specs, ya might as well compare them.

Sorry for the confusion, I thought he was talking about the graphics specs.
