Someone with a good track record {according to some NeoGaf folk} named Karek reckons the Durango wont need that much ram for the OS.

Nah it really doesn't come down to that at all.

If this rumor is to be believed it comes down to the following:

PS4 GDDR5 - able to push larger amounts of data at once, but much slower cycle rate

360 DDR3 - able to push less data at once but do it more rapidly + having more memory to work with.

PS4 - .50 caliber machine gun firing 5 rounds per second

360 - .30 caliber machine gun firing 10 rounds per second and having more ammo to fire with.

 

I really don't know how else I can illustrate this to people...GDDR5 doesn't necessarily mean faster performance. Infact for non GPU tasks its much worse.

I think you need a little more about the GDDR5 tech... it is not like GDDR4 or GDDR3... more for graphcis... GDDR5 was created for both worlds and more... graphcis and computer.

Funny that medias keep guessing wrong about 720's RAM type

Why?

Both will have GDDR5

I think you mean XBox 720? And I'm pretty sure GDDR5 is FASTER than DDR3. Am I wrong?

For gaming, yeah, easily. Disolitude was exaggerating the difference... I bet the only reason MS is going the DDR3 way, while almost every console ever released opted for non-standard designs of faster bandwidth, is because of OS and possible multimedia uses, not to mention the embedded RAM.

Also, I guess some other people here will insist to the last moment with their delusional beliefs aren't they... these little sad people.

I agree but I guesse you have some fresh info .

GDDR5 was created by ATI for both worlds... graphcis and computer.



Anyway a good article talking about GDDR5 being used in next console / other general markets and not just graphcis... the article is old... 2008.

http://theovalich.wordpress.com/2008/11/22/100th-story-gddr5-analysis-or-why-gddr5-will-rule-the-world/

The tech was created by ATI and after 2006 by AMD for these purpose.



I don't care as long as next Xbox is more powerfull than ps4 I'm happy about it

Yay!!!
