PS3 equivalent to PC

post #1 of 88
Thread Starter 
Any of you know how the PS3 can compare to a PC, like the GPU on the PS3 equivalent to a 7 series or x19 series etc, any of you know?

www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ps3#Hardware_summary

The Graphics Processing Unit is based on the NVIDIA G70 (previously known as NV47) architecture, which focuses on maximizing per-pixel computation in favor of raw pixel output. The GPU will make use of 256 MiB GDDR3 VRAM clocked at 700 MHz. The GPU has access to the XDR main memory as well.

G80 beats the PS3 in terms of raw performance but is also more expensive... for now.

But don't get too caught up in comparing GPUs alone. There are very significant differences in the architectures that make such simplistic comparisons totally invalid. For example, the PS3's CPU does not do out-of-order instruction processing, but a PC CPU does; and programming for a single CPU is much easier for developers than the PS3's multi-chip architecture.

Sorry to say this but a PC is outdated every week.

Even if you buy a totally beast machine that tottally rocks and costs xxxx amount then your still only the best for a short time.

However PS3 and every console will still be up to date, because they dont update.
There is no need to go upgrade to play a game because your system will always be able to play it.
Plus consoles dont have to worry about windows etc eating up resources thats why they can run on a lot less.

Now the PS3 with its many cells and stuff wont be utalised properly until really needed.

Take the PS2, 250mhz CPU and it handled a LOT of games that even a 1ghz pc could not handle.

Just think before you say outdated, as your PC is "Outdated".

The PC in my spec could be consider by some to be outdated. But in reality I doubt I'll run into a game I can't play for quite awhile. Just because something better is out there doesn't exactly make what I currently use outdated.

Outdated to me means something that is out of date. As in can no longer really be used. Most of the peoples pc's here aren't going to be out of date for awhile. The PS one can no longer really be used to play new to semi new games and therefore would be out of date for a gamer. PS 2 isn't really out of date yet but will be headed that way soon as the price of the PS3 starts coming down.

I think your taking this outdated thing too literally.. I'm sure you know this but just think about it. A PC has new products being released weekly because of the vastness of the market while a playstation/xbox/nintendo is updated about every 4 years. The consoles are very incremental compared to PC product launches because of the number of developers making pc parts. I'm sure this is old news to you but because consoles are sooo incremental with new products, the technology is very old before the release of the next generation. So measuring how out dated it is by the release of new products is nice and all, but measuring how advanced it is to current cutting edge products will prove it is out of date already and will only get older till it catches up again during the next release in a few years.
