Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS Vita Could Have The Power Of A PC

Seems overly biased.

Guy is overly optomistic....ignoring the massive head start of the 3DS and forgetting that its price and games that sell systems......not hardware specs

EDIT: Oh and contemporary pcs cant even run games like Starcraft 2 on max settings. Just saying, the average PC isnt built for heavy duty gaming.

One year ago, in July 2010, TechSpot did this review.  With an Intel i7-920 running at 3.70GHz, the HD5870 was able to do an average of 60 fps (with a min of 45 fps), on a 2560x1600 res and the settings on Ultra.

Now there are Sandy Bridge CPUs, that run games faster, and the HD6970 or the GTX 580.

Since Vite has not been released yet, what is a contemporary PC for you?



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

Yeah I agree. Maybe a contemporary PC that is 6 years old! *rimshot*

ARM holdings a UK based company all the giants supposedly go to them. they design then patent there designs and let people use them.  they build the cpu's to test them and stuuf but they dont actually make and sell them just the rights to the designs.

Sorry, you misunderstood my post.

Gaming on: PS4 Pro, Switch, SNES Mini, Wii U, PC (i5-7400, GTX 1060)

AMD said that the 'xbox 720' processor will be capable of rendering Avatar style graphics at 60 fps.

 

Hardware developers lie.



Uh, PCs aren't stable, they change and get upgraded, Vita on the other hand isn't upgradable.

And it will also be priced at twice the cost of some contemporary PCs, what's their point?

Use sensible metrics for comparison please, not ones that are pretty much arbitrary

Half the price of a PSV = $125-150

 

You can get PCs for $100

Sure, they aren't good PCs (which is my point really), so what if PSV is 'as powerful as a pc', when there exist pcs that cost $100 and are not very powerful at all.
