why are you using the prices of the PS4/XB1 from 3 years ago?

When the switch launches, isn't it going to be on the shelf with $250-$300 PS4s/XB1s?

Hey great work. Some informations are wrong in your comparison.

The Tegra X2 Chip is rumored to have 1500 GFLOPS in FP16. 

In FP 32 the Gflops will be significantly lower (estimated 500-700 Gflops).

 

As comparison: Tegra X1 had 1000 Gflops in FP16 and 370 Gflops in FP32.

Both Ps4 and XBox Ones numbers of Gflops are measured in FP32. 

You should compare FP32 to FP32 otherwhise the numbers cant be compared.

 

Clockspeed ir rumored to be 800mhz.

 

Also: Based on rumours: The X2 will have 2 performance cores. The low energy cores most likely wont work for gaming. So its more likely it will use just 2 cores in gaming.

 

I dont know about all the other stuff but great work so far.

Updated based on latest rumors...

I have 500~700 referring to FP32 which is more comparable to other systems and game development. I also mention it is capable up to 1.5TF which refers toteh FP16.

I am comparing FP32 only, but mention the possible upper limit. I guess I can be more specific on that upper limit.

Latest clock speed (gpu) is 921Mhz - updated just now.

I disagree with your BIG.little statement regarding gaming. THere is no reason to assume the little (A57) core is solely used for non-gaming functionality.

Those are "launch" prices/dates/etc.



This dev kit image is interesting. It clearly has connections for

  • Wii Sensor Bar
  • LAN
  • HDMI
  • Wiimote Controller
  • and whatever the hell those to nobs are for.
The sensor bar and controller connector are what interests me the most. Given the NES Classic also uses the same ports, I wonder if there will be support for this type of controller design? I'm guessing not in the same manner as this must be to allow teh various types of joycons to be tested. 
What I see from this is:
  • joycons due have IR functionality and wii sensor bar included
  • joycons will come in many flavors, similar to the patents showing gamecube style versions
What do you think?

1. Might just be prop. port (like ps camera).

 

 

I think its fake btw.

Wouldn't it be more appropriate to add the PS4 pro and the xbox one s? If you want to talk about hardware, you have to compare it to what's currently on the market as that's the competition it will be facing. You can't just compare it to the PS4 and Xbox one as if they were just launching

I was comparing it to the base models as that is fully known and what is closer to the NS.

However, this isn't the first request... I think I'll need to determine best way to add Pro/Scorpio data to better understand the new high-end.

I think Nintendo is going to be very flexible with controller options this time around, so virtually all games should support any controller that is feasible to use for the game in question. The packed-in joycons are probable to have motion controls and IR aiming. These aren't expensive components and they have their use, so it would be a missed opportunity to leave them out.

There have to be various joycons, because not being able to use Switch in portable form with a proper d-pad would be utmost stupidity on Nintendo's part.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

yep, this article lays out what we're both saying.

Here is their image as well.



One month to hopefully finalize the OP. I think at that time I'll go ahead and add PS4Pro and Scorpio somehow ...
