    Holy Smokes! I was expecting Microsoft to 'Bring the Wood' but didn't expect the WHOLE Damn Forest. Those four Move Engines, Wow! I don't want to confuse people with a lot of Technical Talk, so in layman's terms, that basically means they are Quadra Pumping the Flop Capacitor out the Ying-Yang.

    Report from vg247 that Kaz Hirai will delay the launch of the ps4 for reasons unknown. It could be the final SDK is not on par with MS final SDUk.

    From what confirmed devs are saying, this chart is legitimate. High level and glosses over important details, but legit. Which I find a tiny bit hard to believe and terribly disappointing.

    There's something special about the "Data Move Engines" that contribute grossly to the 720's performance.. Apparently it's cool stuff.

    Even if that is true, though, there's no escaping the low bandwidth, the paltry 32MB of ESRAM.. I mean they're literally using 8GB of DDR3 for a dedicated gaming machine!

    WTF people.

    Hopefully not for too long. Sony doesnt want to give MS any more time with the market to themselves than what is absolutely neccessary.

    Its not a dedicated gaming machine. If anything this and other rumors point to the opposite.

    Damn, awesome specs. Xbox 3 is gonna be pimping if true. Hard to believe that the PS4/Xbox 3 are so close in performance. Good news for all.

    The days of consoles being just dedicated gaming machines are over whether it be MS or Sony.

    What I mean is, in principle this thing is designed to do games first and foremost with other media functions incorporated as important, but secondary, features.

    They're used for load balancing. To keep the system at higher levels of efficiency and utilization.

    They could be using a flux capacitor in order to future proof it.

    Yeah it does. Though some games don't let you do it, so it's developer choice. Out of the games I have Lumines doens't let me do it but it makes sense I guess since it's a music/beat puzzle game

    So according to someone in the know, that diagram is lacking, or completely neglecting an entire block.

    I dunno the way some of the insider guys on GAF and just Microsoft's attitude in general that seems quite the opposite.



    Thought that's okay with me because its what I want.

    I was glad to here that on the gaming side Microsoft is going to go hard like they did Pre Kinect.

    I wonder how many of these OS features will be locked away behind gold accounts?

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

    They'll probably raise gold to $70. Maybe bring in an ad-free version and call it platinum for $100.

    From Gaf:

    A person in the know I spoke with said the diagram is missing a cross-buffer between the North Bridge, Data Move Engine, and DDR3. This cross-buffer adds an extra vertex layer to the GPU, essentially doubling the throughput of the ESRAM. This innovative feature is a virtualization, so to speak, of trans-core communication.

    Is that diagram accurate? It has a northbridge? No memory controller in the CPU?
