Electronic Arts CTO Rajat Teneja has suggested that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are ahead of today’s high-end PCs by a whole generation.
“These architectures are a generation ahead of the highest end PC on the market. Our benchmarks on just the video and audio performance are 8-10 times superior to the current gen,” said Teneja on LinkedIn.
“The compute capabilities of these platforms and the data transfer speeds we can now bank on, essentially removes any notion of rationing of systems resources for our game engines.”
He went on to highlight the ability of cross-platform play in next-generation machines, such as the relationship between PS4 and PlayStation Vita.
“We’ll really start to see more examples of true cross-device play. Sony showed off the ability through their cloud gaming functionality to allow gamers to play high-end console titles on the handheld Vita product.
“The architecture of both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 present more opportunities to take your game from TV to smartphone to PC, with seamless ubiquity and experience gaming at any time, in any way on any device.”
PS4 and Xbox One will be released later this year.
