    Interesting NVidia Slide from GDC

    It does make you wonder.. What do they know? This is causing a ruckus in other forums so, I figured you guys shouldn't be in the dark




    http://www.4gamer.net/games/209/G020984/20130330001/

    To me, it looks like they made the slides based off of the rumored specifications. That being said, they are a major player in the graphics community and if anyone talks to developers, it is these guys.

    Someone suggested nvidia might be working with the consoles to port the physx engine. Also that the AMD exec (Bob Feldstein) responsible for getting AMD on the PS4, WiiU and the next Xbox left for nvidia.

    This is so silly from Nvidia. How much cost a Titan right now? 1000$ ? Against a 400$ console who has more then just a graphic card inside ? Better hope that this $#@! is 3x more powerful cause it cost you 3x more lol
    And how the heck they now the final specs for next-box ? Even MS seems not to know (yet).

    This literally closes the loop, then, and confirms that the rumored specifications for the 720 are true.

    The people that buy the titan card are not the same market as $500 console gamers. Yet again we have more unconfirmed reports on the 720 and its performance, they really need to let the cat outta the bag already. Keeping quiet is only creating missinformation that will hang around even after a press event.

    the titan has been produced in a limited quantity if im not mistaken. shouldn't be up there imo...

    680 would have been a better piece for comparison.

    It's not misinformation and that is why they are quiet. Read that link Ryunosuke posted. Quite literally, the guy who inked the contracts with MS and Sony works for NVidia now. They aren't operating off of rumor, it is a known quantity.

    I might go as far as say that they have stolen this from another press show, or they are spinning this crap for more marketing exposure

    So this is a stab at the PS4 and what it could have got, if it partnered with them

    Titans are $1000+ and PS4/720 will most likely be $400-$500. Im a PC gamer but unless i get rich i would never spend over $500 on a GPU.

    This seems fairly accurate. Though of course most people only care what can be done in real world examples, not the raw processing power of the hardware itself. This is why in a lot of ways consoles, especially around release, are an excellent price-to-performance package.

    Also, we get it, nVidia. Your 1,000$ GPU is the fastest thing on the market. Good for you.

    p.s. Epic avatar, Hellsjester. Sunbro is the best.

    Which is really interesting to me. I always thought the original Xbox was a beast of a machine when it released. It had some serious muscle back in the day. Yet you had PC gamers (at the time) looking away and reassuring themselves of the infinitely superior PC hardware. I always found that amusing.

    Ahh... you're right. Yeah, that's crazy. I don't think we'll be seeing that again, though... with the rate at which the GPU market is evolving (mostly because of the cost of high end GPUs these days).

    Yeah, true that. They used to not make $1000 cards, either. Now it's like a thing. Quite strange.

    Yes, well when you have a card like the Titan that has seven billion transistors on one GPU, it kind of makes sense. :P

    Ruckus? What sort of Ruckus?
    Leme guess the PC gamers are bragging that their tech is stronger...even though they will not own it for years because it's too expensive for them.

    The reality is a console is the most cost effective gaming choice. You can't build a rig that competes with the ps4 on both a power and cost spectrum. Most powerful choice on the market if you have the money to spend? No. But when you are comparing gamers to gamers, the average age range of said gamers are too young to have the money to drop $1k on a SINGLE PC component. Then you have to factor in having a stronger power supply, etc etc.

    These graphs are great and all, but serve no purpose but to spark forum debate and flame wars.

    I think the main thing he's pointing out is that the nextbox is lower than the ps4, the titan is irrelevant.

    So u have never SLI or Crossfire before?
    2 680 will run u very close to a Titan in cost.

    As for ppl claiming Nvidia is butthurt cause they are not in the console market this gen is comical, $400-$500 for a PS4 and 720? LoL Nvidia flip $500 and up GPU daily on the PC market that's why AMD has to find creative way to stay alive with it CPU+GPU combo and before that they try cost/performance efficiency and didn't do so good. On the CPU market they getting pounded by Intel, and GPU market by Nvidia, so it seem the console market is the best move right now, maybe it will be permanent.

    p.s. btw Not hating on Sony or PS4 cause I'm a Sony fan.

    I agree with you friend and you have got some good points. I saw the price of that GPU Titan was 1000 boo its a lot.

    This isn't news. The 720's GPU is weaker than the PS4's.

    Also the chart is kind of misleading, it makes it seem as though the Titan GPU and the consoles are just a hair apart. If it weren't for that little hint that said "3x" you wouldn't really think there was a huge performance gap.

    I think a more useful comparison (not that Nvidia is interested in that) would be with a GTX670 or 680.

    tldr; when a graphics card costs $1000 it had better be more powerful than damn near anything ever released on the market lol.

    This is no thing but a PR stunt obviously, and while Nvidia may have complete knowledge of the 720 and PS4 inner workings it could also simply being them estimating based on the leaks from VGleaks.
