NeoGAF verfied user: NX CPU is noticeably better then PS4 and Xbox One CPU

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - NeoGAF verfied user: NX CPU is noticeably better then PS4 and Xbox One CPU

Sweet now lets see if NX games will noticeably be better than PS4/XB1 because that's the only thing that actually matters in this console war.

I find comparing specs between consoles to be such a minuscule debate where it really just comes down to the games. It's not like a huge gap compared to consoles vs PC.

...and being released 3yrs after their competitors the NX CPU better be more powerful lol

"Other devs can't say it so I fucking will go home nintendo. It's servicable at best and I know it for a fact this system is another good mid range pc if we had to compare to something not even a high end mid range pc"

This leaker realy doesnt have a lot of good things to say about the NX

The guy seems a bit biased, by the way. I mean, he's expecting the NX to be a high end mid range PC power. Nobody is expecting that. And I prefer them to keep it cheap. Good mid range PC is enough, because Nintendo games are not that demanding, and if it has the same power as PS4/One, third parties could jump in the NX bandwagon (no excuses now because of console power). Also, the comment about the prize? What the hell? Nintendo is not precisely the company which makes the consoles pricier. WiiU, maybe, because of the Gamepad, which is rather expensive. Another guy implying Nintendo fans are "fanboys" and that we will bit it up for 400$. There's no way the console will cost more than 350 (my bet will be 300, but who knows). Unless Nintendo lost their minds. That's nice. Fuck off. Anybody expecting a one generational jump right now is a bit crazy. There's no point in doing that.

Satoru Iwata himself said ones that the only reason what held back Nintendo Wii U was not the price, it was the less 3rd party support! And I agree with him, if people want something really bad than the price doesen't matter! Kid buy today 600 Dollar Smartphones or 500 Dollar Tablets, if they really want it they buy it. And thats the reason why Nintendo really should release a more powerfull console for 400 or even 500 Dollar. If it's a cool console with alot of power than people will buy it also for 1000 Dollar ;)

If rumor of NX being ARM is true, this is expected. ARM is kicking ass. Problem is porting will be harder on this new architecture, unless they plan porting mobile games.

And the deal-breaker will be GPU, most precisely, PS4K GPU vs NX GPU. I would bet PS4K would win, since sony wants to leverage VR, which is very GPU demanding.

Although I do think that Nintendo will use ARM for both the hand held and console, I think your comment on porting is inaccurate though. As long as ARM is supported by the majority of game engines out there (which it is). Porting games to the NX shouldn't be any harder than if the system was x86. What will actually help Nintendo is if the NX is easily more advanced than both the PS4&XbOne in technical specifications by a good margin. This would insure that NX versions of games could be ported without any issues and focus on optimization for the hardware.

The price really matters. I can assure that there's no way in hell I'll buy a console for 600 dollars, and I'm sure a lot of people feel the same. I don't have that money to spend. And what advantage will take Nintendo of that extra-power? Nintendo can surely make great looking games in the NX if it has the same power as PS4/One and, let's be honest, I don't think there will be a lot of third party exclusive support, there will be ports of PS4/One games, best case scenario. So what's the point on making an expensive console if you won't have any advantage out of it? You won't take any benefit of that extra-power. Sure, first party games could look better, but with a PS4/One power console, Nintendo could manage to do wonders.

It will matter from day 1. No one gets excited for a system that's basically the same thing as something else that launched 3-4 years earlier?

Would you be excited about the smartphone that's as powerful as iPhone 5? Yeah it can run the same apps, but so what? 

This strategy only works if you have a groundbreaking, earth shattering, stop everything you have to try this type of other aspect to their hardware like the Wiimote was to the year 2006. 

PS4/XB1 is crap hardware by today's standards, even Sony is apparently making something double the PS4 for $400 in PS4K, you will have tablets as powerful as the XB1 at least quite soon. 

Speaking of the PS4K, if I were a PS4 owner right now,  I think I'd be really upset.  They buy a console with no real worthwhile exculsives other than Bloodborne on the promise that great exclusive games are going to come in the future and now that the time is near, Sony unveils a new PS4 that makes the one they already own look like a piece of shit.  The big spit in the face to me is that early adopters don't even have the comfort of knowing that they were able to play great games earlier than those that waited because a significant number of the notable games that came out for the first two years of the PS4's lifespan were cross-generational or remasters.  Aside from getting to play Bloodborne a year early, I don't think there were many positives in being an early PS4 adopter.  I'd imagine the anger I'd feel would be like how some Wii U owners felt when they started to realize that Zelda U was going to be cross-generational  -- except significantly worse.

At least Nintendo had the decency to release the n3DS when the 3DS already had years of great exclusive games.

As an early adopter, I take comfort in the fact that I got to play PT a dozen times, and anybody who ever buys a ps4k will never, ever, ever be able to play it.

And it's just a CPU

If it include more RAM, more powerful GPU then it would be a diffirent story

I was expecting, and kind of hoping for NX to be a weak, $250 system. Nintendo games don't need spectacular hardware, and I already have a midrange PC for multiplats. I would've bought the thing at launch, which is something I have never done. Hopefully they can keep the price at $300. Any more and they run a serious risk of repeating the Wii U's mistake.



The guy leaked info regarding the Wii's CPU, so I think it's safe to believe what he says.

X1>PS4? For real? Well if Xbox One is supposed to have a better CPU than PS4 then does it really mean that much? Good for NX if true though, although considering the time between releases you'd expect that anyway.

Oh and the title should be better than (with an a) and not then (with an e)...

XB1 has a slightly better CPU than PS4. But most modern games are heavily GPU bound, and not CPU. And in that regard, PS4's GPU is around 50% faster than XBO's GPU, which is why you see XB1 games struggling to keep up. Along with the PS4's faster GDDR5 RAM vs XBO's DDR3.
