    Just curious, what do you mean by that? What adaptations to 64-bit OSs aren't already in place?

    Watching the live feed with a Maredsous beer on the table in front of me. Been waiting for this moment for years. :-P

    Pretty unexpected, but really cool if it's true! Adding some additional customized hardware is definitely easier than trying to turn a low-frequency design into a higher frequency one.

    They're not throwing the generic design in there, but it's also unlikely that they're modifying the actual CPU core. The APU consists of CPU cores, GPU and memory controller. The chip is obviously...

    GDDR5 is just reasonably cheap and fast memory. It's nothing new, since graphics cards have used it for years. It's a first for consoles, though. The point of having high-bandwidth memory like this...

    As far as I'm aware, that kind of memory is not even commercially available. Unified memory, or "Unified Memory Architecture", in the PS4's case means the sharing of the 8GB GDDR5 between the CPU and...

    Okay, I'll give this a try:

    Ok so we have 8gb of ram. That's pretty good for today's standards but what is all this talk of Unified and GDDR5 vs standard GDDR3 type ram?

    The PS4 hardware looks like a mixed bag, from a performance perspective. The best part of it is obviously the 8GB of shared GDDR5 RAM. That is 16 times more memory than the old consoles and should...

    You'd get much better results by doing the following:

    - Exchange the AMD CPU for an Intel Core i3-2100 (or 2120/2130, if the price difference is small). Despite being dual core, it's generally...

    Yeah, the main problem with mods is probably the 1GB VRAM that most 5870's have. Here are a few results from my rig that I posted on another forum. It's without mods, but with a few ini tweaks that...

    It's not very taxing on the GPUs, though. A single HD 5870 is good for 1920x1200 with Ultra settings, 4xAA/8xAF and 90 degree FOV. It's expected, though, since it's a console game with pretty small...

    Well, I didn't say it was all that high, just that I thought it might be higher than Crysis 2. ;) Crysis at "Very High" is often around 2 million polygons per frame and sometimes around 3 million and...

    My guess is that Crysis also could be displaying a generally higher polygon count, due to jungles being more geometrically complex than buildings. As far as I know, the original version of Crysis 2...

    Well the HD5470 is not even close to any of the 8800 GTS models, so if that rumor turns out to be true, the game is probably not going to run well for you.

    That said, I'd be surprised if an 8800...

    I've owned it since June this year. Nice, good looking car and quite fast as well. Gas mileage with the 7-speed gearbox is pretty good.
