But of course, 85% of the computers on OCN are quite beyond the capabilities of the consoles (spec wise) Some of you guys with tri-fire 7970's and Titans are probably already as strong as the next NEXT gen (PS5/Xbox 2)...it's just that every ounce of juice of your monster machines won't be squeezed out quite like a consoles.  

I'd have to agree.

I saw i7 laptops without dedicated GPUs or SSDs, and still marketed as great for gaming. Because screw balancing performance.

EDIT: Also, your average joe will consider the 650/660 and the 7770/7850 high end. They don't know squat about the Titan or the hexacore i7s.

They need to hurry up and release the consoles, every 6 months that pass by the console tech takes a dive.

Of course not.

We all know that EA Exec's are nothing but liars. They lie about so much stuff it isn't even funny. This is just another one.

I doubt it will be "Console bashing" so much as "EA bashing" and IMO, reporting the fact that he said it, he DESERVES all the bashing he gets.

So it can play games maxed 2560x1440/1600 @ 60fps?

Enjoy your low res 30fps cap EA.

First they say the WiiU is crap and have to correct later on, now that XOne and PS4 are a generation ahead the PC...

What the hell do they smoke over at EA?

I have no experience with the current PC TV tuners, but I for one am quite impressed with the future interface of Xbox One.  Considering I have no problem paying for Xbox Live, I already have my TV provider, and I'm quite confident in my internet connection, I look forward to using all the functionality.  To me, it's just more options.  Options that I can opt out of, or completely use.  Gaming wise, I wish they had some sort of Gears of War teaser or impressive tech demo, but I'll just wait to make any judgments until E3.  

 

If they put as much effort into their gaming as they did for the rest of the interface, I think it's going to be quite a treat.  I just hope that the weaker GPU doesn't create too much disparity between it and the PS4

I've been waiting for a thread like this to be created just so I could voice my opinion on the whole issue. In one way, and one way alone do I think the statement that the PS4 and XOne being a generation ahead of hig-end gaming rigs could be true: hUMA.

Having memory that's shared directly between the CPU and GPU is groundbreaking in terms of innovation. Nothing we have in the market so far has close to the bandwidth or latency a true HSA-enabled SoC like those powering the next-gen consoles, or even in the near future (does anyone else see the FX getting a built-in GPU+RAM, or APUs with 8 cores?)

The potential of HSA isn't in boasting the best component chips, but in the fully realized integration between them. They won't magically make an underclocked Jaguar perform like a 3930K or a 7850-equivalent match a Titan, but putting them together allows them to be more than the sum of their parts.

Everything else EA says is utter bull, though.

The only thing that can come from this thread is trolling. I understand what he's trying to say though. We very possibly might see games on these new platforms that surpass current PC games. Keep in mind that the new console games will be coded much more efficiently and more system resources can be used to play the game as opposed to a full desktop.
