Sad there is no ps3 ps2 and ps1 bc :(

Are you sad that the Switch has no Wii U, Wii, Gamecube & N64 backwards compatibility? I didn't think so... You want to play your old games? Then don't sell your old consoles.

Gee, there's a thought.

It is good to know I will not need to hang on to a ps4 when the ps5 comes out. Still have my ps3 because of the lack there of.



 

Heh. I can play NieR, Gravity Rush and Persona on PS5.

Nice

I have no switch so it's irrelevant to me 

I have all of them but when my ps1 and ps2 got corrupted  how can I repair them ?

So when there is no repair than I can't play my games so bc is more feasible 

But however I'm really excited for the ps5 to play all Sony exclusives in 4k 60 fps and if possible 8k on a 8k Samsung tv

8k gaming ain't happening,  4k 60fps well hopefully   be norm

I said if possible if not 4k and 60fps hopefully is huge for me and a reason to buy the ps5

Very doubtful too. That's like hoping PS3 would be actual full HD after 512 x 448 games in the 6th generation.

I'd wager 4k 30 fps or 1440-1800p 60 fps for the first cross-gen games and going lower with checkerboarding (but looking better) later on.

And that's assuming the hardware is some 12 TF, $499 machine.

4K 60 FPS is doable if the leaked specs are accurate. Even with improved graphics. Of course, I fully expect devs to want to push graphics as much as possible, so they will opt for 30FPS or CB rendering.

The thing with using NAND as a high-traffic swap cache is the idea of one write, many reads.
Which is why Readyboost cache was a thing, which is why the Corsair Accelerator existed and why the Sandisk Radycache was rather popular for awhile.
Add onto the mechanical drives with a chunk of NAND like the Seagate Firecuda SSHD.... And it's actually a common idea.

Optane is NAND which is optimized for it's task, rather than using commodity chips.

I'm surprised that you deleted the comment that I responded to, which was treating SSD "like Optane"...

Opatane is NOT NAND; It's 3D Xpoint.

Not only is Optane faster, when used as a HDD cache, it contains vastly different caching methods compared to SSHDs to make use of the magnitudes greater TBW compared to NAND. That is why Optane can achieve speeds much greater than SSHDs. Caching via SSD is NOT done "like Optane".

Please do your research before arguing your point.

I didn't delete anything. Perhaps you don't pay attention, but VGC autodelets trees due to people in the past forgetting to trim their quote trees.

None of what you replied to was written by me.
