Is the HD 6850 better than the graphics card on the ps3? - Page 4

post #31 of 46
I was being serious it would take a beast of a PC to run a game with graphics like GT5 smooth. Of course PS3 / 360 are solid platforms to work on so they can squeeze every last ounce of performance out of them. That's why GT5 looks so good, name me one PC racer that look as good let alone better. I'm no console fan btw I don't even own one.

No, your still not getting this.

It would not take a beast of a PC because a lowly slow 360 can run it.
If a 3 core @ 3.2Ghz/256MB ATi (thats what in a Xbox 360) can make GT5 look that good, just imagine how good it would look on a current midrange PC.

The Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 are very weak in power compared to an average gaming rig. If they ported GT5 to a PC, it would REALLY look good and you could crank all the settings up way past what a crappy console is capable of. Most features like AA/MSAA etc aren't available on a console anyways and these enthusiast like features make a monster difference.

Stop thinking a 360 is powerful.
I have a cheap 720 X3/5770 build that is worth next to nothing now, and it would still scorch a 360.

Given the hardware of those 2 consoles I think they are doing pretty good for themselves since they are 5 or 6 years old.

Although only my son touches my PS3 these days. With my standard definition tv I can't touch the PS3 anymore considering my rig.

Edit: The controller sure comes in handy for games though, I love motionjoy! Plug!

I would say any PC racing game made after 2006 looks better than GT5 on the PS3.

The 6850 is probably better than the GPU in the PS4 will be...

Well I would hope next gen consoles have todays mid range card considering they won't be out anytime soon!!

Edit: If not that is bad news for PC gaming!!

Dirt 2 looks waaaaaaaaaay better than GT5.

The only thing GT5 wins at is model detail in photomode. But the PS3 can't even handle the detail of the fully rendered cars in gameplay.

Again its all subject to game, hardware and many other variables.

If game developers would optimize as well for the PC as they do for the consoles, that wouldn't be so much true. But even as it is now, it's not quite true. I bet you can get very close with comparable hardware. You are forgetting one thing: with PC's we nowadays consider it desirable to run at 1680x1050 for the mainstream and good to run at Full HD (1920x1080) or even higher resolutions for high-end with everything maxed out.

If you were to do a fair comparison, you'd have a PC with a quad core CPU and a 7900GTX at a 1280x720 resolution. And then you would fine tune the game options to make it look like the console. I can almost guarantee you'd get a fluid game all the same.

I've been doing some experiments with my legacy P4 Northwood that has a Radeon X1950 Pro 256Mb (an upper mid-range card from 2006 - the same year the PS3 came out - the equivalent to a nowdays GTX560 Ti, at a $250 price point), and I can play Crysis and Crysis Warhead fluidly with the shaders and texture quality set to medium, and the water to high, and I can assure you it looks very good, probably the same as it would look on a console IF the consoles could run these games in the first place, which they can't because of open world map design.

And if you don't believe here are the screenshots I took:

How many examples do you want ?

Let's take your GT5:


Compare it with:
