    PC vs. Consoles performance in the last 13 years.

    According to nVidia.

    Yup I'm Back. If you wonder, read this. =)

    I am tired of hearing about Nvidia and their damn shots against consoles all of a sudden. Why are we just now hearing them make these statements? I am starting to hate Nvidia lol.

    Now that they are not making money off consoles, they are trying to convince people to buy their damn cards for their PC. I would go with AMD over Nvidia anyways.

    Yeah they seem a bit butt hurt.

    Also, it's not fair to compare consoles with Titan. Never before a single core card had a US$1k pricetag. That's ridiculous. They should've taken a 680 as an example.

    It's definitely a silly comparison. :/

    That 3x claim by nvidia is BS imo.

    That chart also shows titan to be around 6TF range which is completely false afaik. Titan is 4.5TF and ps4 is around 2TF. Half of the computational power of PC cards is lost in overhead so nvidia is only just a tiny amount ahead when you consider 'to the metal' coding and efficiency gains as the gen goes on.

    Further more they forgot to mention that the titan is A FREAKING $1000 GPU THAT SUCKS MORE POWER THAN THE ENTIRE CONSOLE

    The memory bandwidth on the Titan is also 288.4 GB/sec, which again is not 3x that of the PS4's 176 GB/sec. It's 1.63x greater. Methinks NVIDIA is blowing smoke.

    It shows that PC is a constantly evolving platform and that there is no next gen per se.

    ITs not measuring memory bandwidth they are measuring flops.

    Yes... I realize that. The point is they're inflating the Titan's power... the chart is a blatant lie. Here's a nifty image to demonstrate:



    The chart is purposely skewed where the Teraflops is higher on the chart than the 5 Teraflops mark... it's almost at 6 or higher... which I just find annoying. It should be below the 5 Teraflops mark. The PS4 has "almost 2 teraflops" of computing performance. The Titan has 4.5. You do the math and see the bull$#@!. They either did that on purpose or NVIDIA sucks ass at making graphs.

    I'm glad they're making sure to let us know their $1000 GPU beats a $500-ish dollar console.

    Wow! NVIDIA is SOOOOO MAD! Lol. I'm glad Sony switched to ATI. Last time, Sony got a chip that was outpowered by the 360's ATI chip and the sad thing to is that the 360's GPU was probably cheaper too lol. That's was NVIDIA gets selling overpriced goods.

    The chart is actually not skewed in that sense. You can't say that that is where the 5 teroflop mark is because this graph is exponential, not linear.

    The graph is bs anyways. The 360 was not more powerful than the 7800 (or even the 6800) at all lol. And they didn't list the 7950GX2.

    log10(4.5)=.653~

    log10(2)=.301~

    Yup yup! Graph is not skewed!

    Oh I'm so surprised. Who is this graph for? Did anyone even question the PS4's Ability to take on the Titan (or any other high end GPU?)

    Obvious chart is obvious

    Yes the 7800GTX has 512MB RAM on its own and can run Half life 2 or Portal with full details over 100FPS.

    If you combine the single-precision floating point performance (4.5TFLOPS) and the double-precision performance (~1.5TFLOPS) then you get around 6TFLOPS. Kepler can perform single and double precision floating-point operations simultaneously. So technically its correct.

    oh yeah that was the new feature for kepler architecture right? forgot about that

    Except on their website they list a max of 4.5 TFlops... in the "Kepler" section of the card. If it was technically 6, I'm sure they'd make mention of it... it is NVIDIA and they do love to brag.

    Sounds about right, consoles are getting closer and closer due to hardware pretty much getting to a point where it's as real as it can get, it's not like the SNES/PS1 days where the PC games were way ahead even at launch of those consoles. The only thing I don't believe is that PS4/720 gap lol

    But if the total combined TFlops is in fact 5.8, it would put it above the performance of the GTX 690, which is 5.6 TFlops. So... that can't be accurate.

    Or maybe I'm just missing something.
