My dad plays the 360, he's over 50. All my uncles play it and they're all over 40. I know plenty of other people over 30 that play the 360, PS3 etc that are over 30.

wow, you of all people. The X1900 offers considerably more folding power than the PS3.

Take a look at some math.

Each SPE can do 8 single-precision FP operations per clock (multiply-adds). Multiply that by 8 (includes PPE) and a 3.2GHz clockspeed:

8 x 3200 = 25.6 Gflops per SPE/PPE
25.6 x 8 = 204.8 Gflops total

Now consider the X1900XT, which runs at 625MHz, has 48 shaders and each shader can do 10 single-precision FP operations per clock.

10 x 625 = 6.25 Gflops per shader
6.25 x 48 = 300 Gflops total

Beats the Cell, and the difference is even greater with the XTX (312 Gflops).

And then look at the F@H stats page:
http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/...?qtype=osstats

PS3: 836 Tflops / 33698 systems
GPU: 30 Tflops / 513 systems

PS3: 24.8 Gflops/system
GPU: 58.5 Gflops/system

See? The X1900 is roughly double the PS3's power according to the stats.

I was enjoying Oblivion in full 1080p glory on my PC, something the 360 and PS3 can only dream of (720p upconverted to 1080)


And yeah, I agree with you on the Wii. Its a console, and just because the graphics aren't as nice and it's cheaper does not mean it's not in the same league as the PS3 and 360. Especially considering that if the Wii was not on the market, 360 and PS3 sales would be a lot higher.

PS3 + 360 = 25m
Wii = 20m


Take a look at the yellow circled area. Wii want to play.

It's funny how they all drop down, but then the Wii sales rocket away at a 45 degree angle while the PS3 and 360 sales hold steady.

my P.C can do a much better job than what any PS3 is designed to execute. because of this most of us with money, and sense, would rather spend good cash on P.C components.

360 doesn't even enter the equation. that "thing" literally died some time ago. its a victim of human induced natural selection and in time, the PS3 will follow.

Of course you can't compare a Wii to either of them, because both the 360 & PS3 try and be something they are not.

sales speak for itself - Wii ftw.

The x1900 requires an entire system to fold, on top of a little bit of technical know-how. Just because it is a better performer does not make it better for the whole project.

Solar-powered cars are one of if not the most effecient "green" cars out and about today. Does that mean they are saving the environment? No. Hybrids are. Why? Because a large amount of people (not me) will actually drive hybrids, where as no one would drive a solar-powered vehicle. Its the same thing for this situation, where the x1900 is a solar powered vehicle and the PS3 is a hybrid.

The PS3 put easy folding compatibility in the hands of MILLIONS. If you can't see why this is better than you need to remove yourself from the discussion.

P.s. hybrids suck.

Before even clicking the link, I knew who would be posting this. Why don't you get yourself a blog? I mean, this is overclock.net, a place about pc's, not PS3's. Just join some sort of PS3 cult and get it over and done with.
