..Or they just didn't compile the exe with the AVX, XOP, etc flags set.
Doesn't mean it is crap nor a console port.

key word: *most*

All the people saying BD is crap are just like the people saying the P4 was crap when it still had potential, the original Willamette P4 was slower in IPC than every other chip, even the P3 but could clock higher (Sound familiar?) unless SSE2 was used, then it was faster in practically every way compared to the P3. Northwood came out after developers had started using SSE2 and refined the new architecture, and was a damn good chip. (Prescott was the one that put out way too much heat and used way too much power, Intel went too extreme with it)
Nearly every new CPU architecture has needed a refinement before it was really usable...Take the Pentium. Pentium 60 and 66? Motherboards couldn't really do the 60Mhz minimum bus, the CPUs put out a lot of heat, there was the FDIV bug, etc...Then the Pentium 90, etc came out. Much better chips.
Same story with the Pentium Pro vs Pentium II.

Yeah, hopefully AMD doesn't have a Preshott... can't say either way as that would be years from now

Might as well make the ps4 games compatible w/ the pc too and vice versa. Then we can compare console to pc.

Playstation 3 doesn't use full OpenGL do to performance issues instead it uses the weaker PSGL.

Won't happen. The only one that would do that is Microsoft but the next Xbox is using IBM's and AMD's Oban APU. For short what is used with Oban is, PowerPC, and VLIW4 or Graphic Core Next.

And back then, 2005-2006, single core performance of an Intel x86 Core 2 Duo at 2Ghz was higher than the Xbox's and PS3's PowerPC at 3.2Ghz. In most cases and as much as you can compare them. So, Bulldozer at 3 - 4Ghz is a huge improvement. Plus all the threads available...


Bulldozer is just a Pentium 4 Class processor with 4 cores and 8 threads 8 so called cores

Also more then likely it will not be Fusion/Llano-like architecture No one in the right mind would use a IGP for a gamming system.

poor choice for a game system.

How dare you compare BD to the P4! My old P4 had HT... BD doesn't boxing3.gif

False, You don't deserve an explanation why you are wrong.

I just posted before you about Oban which is an Accelerated Processing Unit(APU) with an Integrated Graphics Processing Unit(iGPU) on the die!(CPU and GPU on the same silicon wafer.)

Well this would be quite cool indeed.

Just a point to all the people saying 7000 series GPU and Piledriver CPU; If the PS4 was to release this year, it would already be in production so while a 7000 series could be possible, its unlikely and a Piledriver CPU is straight out of the question. (Again if it was to release in 2012) it would be more likely to have a variant of bulldozer tailored to Sony's needs, and probably some variation of the 6000 Series GPU.

If it is scheduled for a 2013 launch, then piledriver/7000 series combo is possible.

I'd really like to see how this plays out, as I am really disappointed that Microsoft is going full on with Kinect for their next console, I hate the darn thing mad.gif. While it would be sad to let go of the console I've played primarily on for the past 5 years as well as all the history (gamerscore rolleyes.gif) If everything for the next xbox is KINECT KINECT KINECT.... Well I just might not want it, and I'll get a PS4 instead.
