News: PlayStation 4 50% More Powerful Than Xbox One

microsoft-xbox-one-4842_610x407According to a new report by the technical buffs over at Digital foundry, Sony’s PlayStation 4 will be leading the way into the next-generation with 50 per cent more power than Microsoft’s Xbox One.

Digital Foundry investigated the specs of each console and found that the PlayStation 4 has 50 per cent more raw power under the hood in comparison to the Xbox One.

“We know that both Xbox One and PS4 are based on Radeon GCN architecture and we also know that each compute unit is capable of 64 operations per clock. So, again, through a process of extrapolation from the drip-feed of hard facts, the make-up of the One’s GPU is confirmed – 12 compute units each capable of 64 ops/clock gives us the 768 total revealed by Microsoft, and thus, by extension, the 1.2 teraflop graphics core.”

To me it’s all mumbo-jumbo, I’ve not got the foggiest what a GPU is and in my mind a teraflop is a mountain doing a belly flop. If you’re after the intricate details, check out the full report here.

This may be good news for those who are within the PlayStation faithful as you would assume that the PS4 won’t be home to sloppy ports from third-party developers, instead you would expect titles to run significantly better than on the Xbox One. Though that’s just what I make of it, I’m no technical wizard. Have a nosey at the article over at Digital Foundry and see what you make of it.

  1. Interesting. The question becomes: will developers take advantage of it? Like the 3DS and Vita Lego games, just because one system is more powerful than the other, doesn’t mean they’ll invest the extra money to make it better. Of course, I’m tentatively pitching my tent with the PS4. Sony has me excited, but they haven’t said anything about how their online works, how the system will play used games, how PS+ plays into it and, quite honestly, make a wholly different system (vita) worth owning even if you have a PS4. I am leaning towards you, Sony. Convince me all the way!
