Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Did SOny just prove Wii U RAM is better than PS4 RAM? Video inside

Seems Wii U has a(Theoretical) 1k gigabyte a second bandwidth while PS4 only has 176. If Sony is right, Wii U wont be as hindered as many people want consumers to beleive.

Ok, so let's assume Wii U's RAM is faster. It's still bottelenecked by nearly everything else. It's like putting 8GB RAM on a Sega Genesis. It just doesn't do much when its CPU and GPU aren't up to speed.

Could be good news to the Xbone against PS4, though, because it is overall more powerful than Wii U to take advantage of that RAM architecture's potential, like Cerny said.



You toooootally misunderstood that (easy to do if you arent tech savy)

1k Gigabytes banwidth sounds amazing, but it's the way those gig's are used that separates them.

In other words, the wii-u can theoretically process more information at a time, butthe PS4 can process information MUCH MUCH MUCH faster than the Wii-U because of the way it's designed.

There's a ton more too it than that, but all you really need to know is that the PS4 bandwidth is actually MANY MANY times mre POTENT than the Wii-U's.

 

...uhh...ill just put my favorite quote of all time here.

"Welcome to Pain, the second of three...You have dealt the first...now deal with me!!"

this is a foreign language to me. Can anyone translate? Bullshit or no bullshit. I don't trust tre with the technical stuff. He is more valued for youtube beef

Oh well. If Sony says it, I guess nobody can doubt now of Wii U's hardware configuration.

Wait, what? Why cut Cerny off?
Why, then, do you think Sony didn't go with that approach? Cerny was just beginning to explain how the approach they went with was superior

You must not be familiar with Tre.



that speech he made is like 2 weeks old and its taken from a 50 minute speech he made



Who really gives a shit about all these daft, meaningless specs?
It's about the games.

Why would you assume that the eDRAM in the Wii U would be as fast as the theoretical implementation Sony were considering? The X360 has eDRAM and it offers nowhere near that for example. Not to mention a very small amount of high speed cache only has limited usefulness, which is why Sony chose to go for faster main RAM instead, because it was a much better choice for most situations.
