Oh....I just read the title ><

 

yeah, the "highest PC on the market".......Origin PC's should say something about that lol

"You have to realize, a 3930k, a 1,000 PSU, and the term's SLI and CFX do not ring any bells in the general public.  They don't know what that is.   A high end PC for the general consumer is just whatever computer at Best Buy looks like it's expensive, Dell XPS and HP Elites.  Those typically come with a decent processor but then are tied with a Nvidia 650 or a AMD 7770.  In this sense, with the amount of support the consoles get, it's debatable that they could outperform your average "high" end pc. 

 



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.  "



 



The PC gaming market is not filled with i7/Titan owners.  It's filled with OEM desktop machines and laptops.   Sure, enthusiasts exist (a la OCN), but the actual PC gaming market consists of cheap OEM desktops purchased between 2008 and now.  People who actually own Titans and 3930k, or even i5 2500k's, and purchase all the games.....probably consist of <5%



 



Keep yourselves in check.  EA can make these claims, because to the majority of the market, Titans and 3930k's is just computer nerd talk or don't actually exist. 



That's false. Best Buy has some high-end PC's of 2,000$ with i7 3770K and Sli-GTX 680. The Titan and 680 are very much part of the consumer market which is what this fool was referring to. If people here had Quadro or Tesla you'd have a point because they're targeted at businesses and workstations. No matter how you try to slice it, he was talking out of his ass.

Most gamers already hate EA and this is really not helping their situation. Instead of saying stupid things like that, maybe they should try to make a quality game for once.

I'm going to do something crazy and post the guys actual words instead of paraphrased click-bait.
Quote:
Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have adopted electronics and an integrated systems-on-a -chip (soc) architecture that unleashes magnitudes more compute and graphics power than the current generation of consoles. These architectures are a generation ahead of the highest end PC on the market and their unique design of the hardware, the underlying operating system and the live service layer create one of the most compelling platforms to reimagine game mechanics.

So he's saying that the soc architectures in particular are a generation ahead of the highest end PC on the market.

So architecture wise, how does the comment stand up taking something like the PS4s GDDR5 and the bandwidth that comes with it etc into account?

Most gamers most likely don't give a damn and enjoy their games.

Its probably why they buy them.

I will personally buy 50 ps4 and 50 xboxone

If they can beat my Xeon 2687w...... beat enthusiast PCs my boner

Those idiots think 30 fps on a TV is "great" or dx9 maybe dx10 on a console is "great"

They didn't say anything about Enthusiast PC's, they are talking about Market Consumer PC's *AKA* Pre-Built Store PC's.
Also I think the new consoles are all DX11.

Can I have one of your 50 PS4's?

The only reason why EA are worshiping these garbage consoles is because they want to use these consoles to make a profit.

NO way this EA PR robot is correct, but it will allows us PC gamers to get better console ports which is what we have been getting for many years. So it is a good thing for us. I had a 360 and it has gathered dust for the last 3 years and I will not be buying either the Xbox One or PS4. PC gaming is just heaps better, and far more fun with the hardware mods and things you can do with PC's.

No. Most users on OCN that are nitpicky and want and at times appreciate a high quality product hate EA. The casual gamer is uninformed and not interested in anything other than picking up the new title at gamestop. Not very many gamers are extremely active on the internet and keep closely up to date with the gaming industry. Other than casual gamers another large group are weekend warriors that play tons of games during the weekend but are gaming rather than scouring the internet about stuff like this tongue.gif

as mentioned by many... this is an enthusiast forum. the entire member list here including not active users is still a tiny percentage of the actual target market for gaming lol. not to mention that most of us have accounts on other sites and whathaveyou
