That's about all I got from this too.

I love my ps3 as much as, or more, than the next guy, but I'm sure our CPU's are more powerful.

Meanwhile in Soviet Russia I bumped this thread.

It is indeed a super computer on a chip.

Your kidding right ? the cell processor might be "powerful" but they didnt take full utilization of that pairing it with a 7600gt .. Ps3 graphics are no better than a ps2 at times it makes me LOL and people think this cheap plastic pos of a machine is capable of running crysis on max ? HAHAHAHAHAHA it would run so horrible or maybe not at all , i wish it was possible though just to prove how **** consoles are .. Cheap technology sold cheap , my gfx card cost as much as ps3 .

Any benchmarks to prove this?

I'm not going to look through all twelve pages of this, I don't know if this hasn't been mentioned before.. But if a single Intel Core i7 980x Extreme Edition 6 Core Processor alone cost at least $600 more than a whole console, that shows something. A 980x processor cannot be compared with a ps3 processor because of the sheer performance and consumer price level difference. I know a lot of people say it's overpriced, but I'm sure it's worth more than a PS3 processor.

As far as a full functioning PC versus a PS3 is ludicrous, it's obvious what is more powerful.

It does seem the troll has won by this being such a long argument..

Just my 2 cents...

haha, honestly... i have not seen a single game on the PS3 with AA support, i don't think the RSX (based on a nvidia 78XX GPU) can use AA, it's all about the magic 60FPS on consoles... everything in the respects of AA and AS take a back seat.

I built my PC because i was fed up with poor graphics and kids on the net, and there are far more games on the PC i prefer... also... uncharted 2 may have 'the best graphics'... for a console... but that does not mean it cannot be ported to PC or Xbox 360... the only reason MGS4 and Uncharted 2 are ONLY on PS3 is that the companies that developed them are either subsidiaries of Sony, or under contract... much like bungie and their Halo games, in fact i read an article somewhere a while ago stating that Halo was originally destined for both the PS2 and Xbox... until Microsoft bought them out.

Either way, the Cell processor is impressive, BUT it's processing cores are locked at 400MHz, which is nothing in today's computing. (even mobile phones are more powerful per core) but the way the data is streamed accross the processor's 7PPE cores is pretty ingenious, 1 core renders rain and another renders textures before it all gets thrown into the GPU (RSX) for final rendering etc.

I think this will answer some of the things asked here wink.gif

I hope this is sarcasm.

The Cell BE in the PS is vastly inferior to most desktop x86 CPUs in general purpose tasks, and even in situations well optimized for it's SPEs it's peak performance is only a fraction of what a high-end modern CPU can manage.

Neither the PS3 CPU nor GPU are any match for what's in a modern upper midrange PC.

They are 3.2GHz actually.

I was the proud owner of a EVO IX MR with cams, full turboback exhaust, reflash, etc.
I was competiteve with cars costing 4x the price.


Back On Topic....

The engineers over at Intel arn't stupid. If a cell style chip was the way of the future, we wouldnt all be running i7s.

Fast specifically refers to top speed/maximum velocity which any of the Bentleys, even the 6.75 OHC V8s will obliterate any of the WRC bred cars. In terms of quickness which is relative to speed, 0-60 may be close but 0-100 (which I think is the better benchmark in today's world) favors the Bentley.

@ blameless

I did some research, and i found more mistakes than you noticed in my own post :/

'but the way the data is streamed across the processor's 7PPE cores'

(for some reason i could not quote)

It's actually SPE, not PPE. (PPE is reserved for the XMB, if i'm not mistaken)

According to another page i saw on this forum, the PS3's graphics do not have true AA, just a blurring feature (apparently)

the link
http://www.overclock.net/playstation/466863-does-ps3-seriously-have-no-aa.html

I would like to add my knowledge on consoles is limited, as i have little interest in them smile.gif

*edit*

It appears (after reading more on the subject) the PS3 does have AA.
