How? 9.2 Tflops in 2020 is more towards high-end while 1.8 Tflops in 2013 was mid-range, also ultra fast 1 TB SSD is much more expensive than 500 GB HDD or even 1TB HDD is, also factor in inflation in 7 years and Coronavirus.
Look what first party devs achieved with 1.8 Tflops. Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4, TLOU 2, Ghost of Tsushima, God of War, Spiderman, 9.2 Tflops is plenty.
$499 even if it's 9.2 Tflops is more than fair price.
EDIT: Also how do you even expect it to cost $399 when it's already costing $450 to produce? Doesn't factor packaging, shipping, retail margin etc.
All this talk about Tflops... And no talk about how powerful the graphics processor is. ;)
Yep. People still harping on theoretical numbers. ‘Look at what devs achieved with x number of teraflops’. Never mind the bus speeds, procs (though admittedly, they aren’t very good), GPUS and their speeds, etc. I really wish more users (everywhere, not just on VGC) educated themselves on floating point operations/second. Blame the console manufacturers, for they gave the masses their new buzzword. Like ‘bits’ was many moons ago.
We’ve tried though, Pem. Give it time, maybe they’ll come around. ;P
