Wanna start a rumour

Wanna start a rumor as I haven't yet biggrin.gif

For the most accurate Xbox 720 hardware specs, we look towards the games development sector, which has been programming Xbox 720 games since last year. The latest leaks suggest that the Xbox 720 will have an 8-core 64-bit x86 Jaguar AMD CPU @ 1.6GHz, coupled with a GPU that’s very close to the Radeon HD 7790. The PS4, in comparison, has an 8-core Jaguar AMD CPU, with a GPU that’s around the Radeon 7870. In both consoles, the CPU and GPU will be on the same die (an AMD APU). Just as the PS4 has 8GB of high-speed memory that is shared by the CPU and GPU, the Xbox 720 — by virtue of being based on the same APU heterogeneous system architecture (HSA) — will probably be the same. In short, while there will undoubtedly be small hardware differences between the consoles, they will ultimately have very similar performance characteristics.

I still don`t understand how can a 2013 console doesn`t force minimum 60 fps ;/, yeah i`m speaking about ps4 but prolly xbox 720 will be more or less the same.

This isn't a rumour or news and it's one of those comparisons that intended to cause a war between 3 platformers. Besides, we don't know the h/w specs for the new xbox so comparing this is just silly.

It won't. Only a few games will run at 60fps. Most games will be locked at 30 and the resolution will not match a high end PC.

It's probably due to trying to keep the game 100% fluid. I think the console makers would prefer a fixed 30fps gameplay with no drops in fps compared to fps say jumping from 30-50 constantly. I would think the cap also shifts decisions as devs have to push and optimize the hardware to meet the 30 fps cap. Though in my personal opinion, the 30fps cap is kind of low and was surprised that a 40 or 50 fps cap wasn't chosen. But nonetheless, since its still a 30 fps cap, expect games to run on good textures in that 30 fps cap on the new consoles, which more or less was the factor that held back textures on the aging previous gen consoles. I'd expect many more games to have more or less High or Ultra settings optimized for 1080p from the consoles.

I just hope consoles won't hold games again in few years or so, but it will probaly already this October.
