    Proves that all devs thought ps4 would get 4GB RAM. Now lets see what they do with 4GB more

    Can we also deduce that the left over gig could have been possibly reserved for the OS and other features?

    Maths is biased! It keeps telling me the PS4 is 50% more powerful than XboxOne!
    Great song, should have more views :'(

    It said 3GB was used for 'graphics'. I'm assuming that doesn't include sound?

    That would be irrelevant, the Audio portion might require a few Megs at best.

    This is some very welcome news.
    Who would have thought building a solid product that serves your customer's needs would beat out money, marketing, hype, and greed.

    Is that 3GB just for graphics? and there is another 1 or 2 more for the game?
    Or
    3GB total RAM usage?

    This is total RAM usage I assume, because we know that ps4 for the longest time, only had 4GB total RAM. The game used 3, and 1gig was left for OS. Devs were making games with 4GB in mind (even first parties)

    Either way there is still plenty of RAM left over.

    I'm sure they'll optimise the memory usage as they move along the generation. BUt good to know that they have wiggle room until they learn the intricacies of doing so.

    It means the sequel will be that much more mind-blowing. I can't wait to see more at e3(hopefully showing off the potential of how fun it can be while playing as a shadow marshal)

    Why use FXAA though? Isn't MLAA pretty efficient on modern graphics cards? And Sony studio's have a history of using MLAA

    I may be wrong about this but FXAA is MUCH more popular in gaming community because of its almost zero resource demand and there have been more work done on it (high quality FXAA implementations being applied that reduce blurring of textures compared to old versions etc)

    FXAA is less demanding.

    Yeah but this is next gen.. Shadow Fall looks excellent graphically sure but if the first lot of AAA games can't use MLAA, let alone multi-sampling AA, that doesn't bode too well.

    MSAA is dead. It is not efficient AT ALL, it can't be used by new deferred rendering engines (and Killzone games use deferred rendering iirc) and quite frankly I find it very annoying when someone thinks just because something uses MSAA, it will look better (TXAA or SMAA are good alternatives) because I find post processing AA is the future. I welcome next gen with all games using FXAA

    MLAA has its own problems though. it literally searches out every hard edge. so subtitles, HUD, textures. the entire scene gets done with MLAA (iirc)

    I think Saboteur had this problem with its implementation of MLAA

    MSAA is dead, i can't see why anyone would want to use it. SSAA is best but uber demanding...

    so FXAA is the happy medium

    Indeed, MLAA applies to all t hings with edges even texts.
    Notice how the text its odd looking in the second picture.

    Normal




    MLAA

    TXAA and SMAA are happy mediums for me but FXAA just sucks, I prefer to have no AA than use it and all the console games that use it just have me wishing I could turn it off

    Games don't work that way. A 5 minute demo can take up all the RAM a console has

    Some more info:







    Source: http://www.guerrilla-games.com/prese...Postmortem.pdf


    Looking like it was closer to 4.5GB of memory being used all things said and done unless I'm reading that wrong. If I'm right, this means they had access to more memory than available in the 4GB dev kits.. This doesn't include the OS resources being taken up either.
