Ok, now I need to make a thread about how fast is going to be the hardware of PS5 pro and Xbox series X2. Lol.
Are you happy with the next gen consoles specs?
Yup... I think they are both very capable machines. I have my concerns with regards to memory bandwidth though, but we can't have it all can we? I think a lot of time and energy is being wasted arguing about the power difference between the two, being that this is the smallest gap in performance difference that we have ever had between a PS and Xbox console ever.
More importantly, though, it would be near impossible to spot the difference between both consoles. The reasoning for this is pretty easy and straightforward (maybe even obvious), but I think people wanna argue about hat a 15%/17% (depending on how you calculate it) GPU difference would make lol.
You were one of the pioneers of SSD talk if I remember correctly. I was a little skeptical of full blown SSD, but a smaller amount however on board seemed within reason back then. I did not think we'd see NVMe, at the speeds they are claiming, with around 1TB. User expandable third party NVMe as well? What? Out of all the ways I thought SNY would flex, this really caught me off guard.
I am really happy personally. I mentioned back then that I would much prefer they focus on super quick loading speeds, even if that meant a slightly weaker CPU and GPU. Slightly weaker GPU if they had to choose between either. Seems like that's darn near exactly what they're offering.
I'm going to have a hard time holding off for a couple years like I usually do this time around. I wasn't the biggest SIE fan until PS4, but after playing TLOURe and the Uncharted Collection, and seeing what they've done on PS4 with HZD, GOW, etc, the potential for PS5 has me drooling uncontrollably.
Yup...to me back then having an SSD was going to be a no brainer. And I also expected that by 2020 SSDs would cost as little as they do now. I guess my power prediction as spot on too, well at least if we do a GCN TFLOPsto RDNA2 TFLOPS conversion lol.
I am buying the PS5 day one. I have already sold my PS4pro (since around nov/December last year to be exact) so I am primed and ready for next-gen to begin and I have a number of games I would be playing for the first time on next-gen hardware (FF7R, RE3R, TLOU2, GoT, Cyberpunk). So I really can't wait.
