    AMD 8000 series GPUs will be featured in next generation consoles


    Sea Islands will spend better part of the year without the real competitor, as NVIDIA will only offer refreshed Kepler until Maxwell comes along. Also worth mentioning is that SI is the architecture chosen to be expanded into high-performance consoles, thus we should see quite interesting announcements regarding to vast compute and graphics capabilities carrying the next generation of console games. Bear in mind that engines such as Unreal Engine 4 do not work on contemporary consoles, while PC hardware can easily churn out those pixels in ultra-high details

    Found it here
    4 Teraflops at $279!!!
    Are u kidding me?!

    WAY WAY more powerful.
    Probably 10x the Wii U aswell (we don't know much about wii u though)
    Basically you need $1500+ PC to match that performance now

    What kind of pricing do think the PS4/NextBox will need to release a console of that magnitude in late 2013/early 2014?

    GPUs that haven't yet graced us in the next gen console. As much as I'm all for that that would mean at least ~2 years if not more before we see the next gen following patterns from before.

    No, I have got to see this....

    Consoles can have GPU tech that isn't on the market. Its basically guaranteed that holiday 2013 is the start of next gen

    The info in that first screen is mind blowing! If true, it means AMD will make a HUGE step forward with the 8000 series and i can only imagine what the 89xx series will be able to do. Of course, in next gen consoles we will see an 8850/8870 based video card but considering those numbers, they will be MONSTERS!

    I hope this is true.

    It would probably be better to wait for something concrete. Still I hope this is correct.

    Next Gen will equal = YIPPPEEEE!!!!

    Next gen gaming should be cheaper in both hardware and software.

    Don't really understand those specs to be honest either but if they allow next gen consoles to provide jaw dropping & unreal graphics, I hope they do go for it! I don't mind paying $500-600 again lol.

    Computing performance SP

    8850: 2.99 teraflops

    8870: 3.94 teraflops


    xbox 360/PS3 gpu's around 250 gflops.

    note 1000 gflops = 1 teraflop

    Even 200TFlops is stretching it when thinking programmable flops.
    So 15-20x performance even without thinking how much better new GPUs are in terms of programmability.

    Yeah, some nvidia official has said that the top end cards on the market RIGHT NOW are 24x the console power.
    Can't wait for E3!

    Man I want to see a next-gen console reveal so badly... I don't care if it's the PS4 or the next Xbox, I just want to see some tech demos and games that we will be playing in 18-24 months. I want to know what next-gen means for us. I mean - is it going to look like a maxed out BF3 on PC? Or will it surpass it (I hope it)?

    So a question to all you tech heads...

    A few devs such as Naughty Dog and Epic make high end character models(and I assume everything else) and then the engine works it magic to lower the quality to fit within the specs of the ps3/360. So with all this extra power(if true), does that mean we can ps3/360 exclusives beefed up for next gen? Basically what hd remakes are this gen but only better.

    I don't want to see some mind blowing $#@! and then have to play my ps3 and see every single flaw with the titles. I'd hate to have to go on next gen black out for at least a year smh.*cries*

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    As of right now, F Destiny.

    The games will have to be remade. You can't put the same game in and get better visuals. Sony knows that HD classics = easy moeny so we may see exclusives getting the HD HD remakes (720p to 1080p).

    Also, those high end character models are really not for games. They are pretty wasteful with computing power. You can't even tell the difference during gameplay. They are for the still shots and cg cutscenes

    Why is 9% less Wattage and 20% less price in red?

    Its an overall decrease from the previous values so that's why.
