Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS4 Pro: Is It A 8.4tf Beast? (NX Gamer)

I get it, this is probably a new video, but how many threads do we really need about this? This has already been discussed very thoroughly, and I doubt the video offers any new insights.

Tagging for later but we already went through this. No.

There is a reason why some people are not allowed to make threads on certain sites, even get this right removed.

Here there is hardly anything you can do about it, apparently.

I have seen a similar topic, but as of now, there's nothing wrong here. Now lets get back on topic.

Feels like we had this thread already, from you no less. Anyway, sure, hypothetically, it can reach that. But will games actually do it? No, so its rather pointless.

Read above.

(To everyone) Again - try not to bring up who posts what. If there is an issue, let a moderator handle it or report it.



                                                                                                             

it will be funny if Xbox Scorpio games have the same graphic fidelity with PS4 games despite having 1.8 more teraflop then PS4 pro. I think there is another reason why SONY chose cheaper variant of new radeon chip rather then their top tier chip vega.

I video does go into more detail and gives examples of the kinds things that FP16 is used for. So that's good.

OT; I think it would be ridiculous to  measure any modern GPU based on its FP16 performance, simply because modern games are pretty much 90% based on fp32 calculations. This however just means that the PS4 pro can either do twice as many fp16 calculations in the time it used to take to do 1 or use up half the number of register calls for FP16 calculations which in turn frees up slots for other FP32 calculations.

And I think that's how this should be looked at, this is about efficiency. 

With regard to things like motion blur, depth of feild, AF, shadow maps....etc, this would mean that they can either be done better or be done faster.

Going by this thread, the Scorpio will be a 12tf Beast with more RAM, faster RAM and a better CPU. It won't have the same fidelity.
