Definitely doable, but the issue is what do you use to compare?
You need a benchmark that is equally efficient.

A Game port could work but might be sloppy for the PC - which may still out-perform the console.

Consoles are made only for gaming thus they will have better graphics than pc games. It's the structure and the development behind this. Also companies put more effort on devoloping console games than pc games (better profit less piracy etc). PC also have the driver issues and optimization issues. Most pc games are pretty unoptimised or console ports. Different platforms different world. I bet after some time we gonna get all those graphics on pc too when they start porting them.

You must have watched a different Xbox One revealing than the rest of us?

He's thinking back to the NES days tongue.gif

Ever since we got disc drives they've turned into media devices and slowly been taken over more and more. First we got CD drives and music players, then dvd's, then blurays and streaming services, and now it's full tv and cable box control!

lol, wonder what they'll think of next.

One one hand, it's nice as you now don't need 5 devices to do everything, but instead 1. But... on the other hand, gaming on them now seems like an after thought, rather than the main focus.

I'm guessing he means next gen console visuals are better than current PC game visuals. Benchmarks don't mean squat in a PC vs Console comparison for obvious reasons. We'll see, it'll be a sad day if these consoles can't best current PC visuals at launch, and still expect another 8 year cycle.

I'm pretty sure I am getting it.

A version of 3DMark could EASILY be adapted to run on a next-gen console seeing as they're using the x86 instruction set.

Well, that and the fact that they no longer subsidize hardware. Now "good enough" seems to be their design philosophy.

I miss the days when consoles really were comparable to PCs.

I also think its a little lame that they now make a profit on hardware, while still raking in massive profits from each game sale. Reeks of price fixing.

Right and who plays 3dmark?

The only true comparison is of image quality and framerate of games. Unless you are coding 3dmark direct to metal on consoles and comparing the images and framerate, you're comparing apples and oranges.

"highest end PC on the market"

That's 3970k + 4 titan watercooled right? How can a 7850 crammed into a small box can outperform that? Silly pr.
