    i did some digging after posting that pic on facebook, it's using a 4 core cpu with each core having 4 logical sub cores, think of a xeon chip using AMD's module concept that is then hyperthreaded, for 16 logical threads, however, it's gonna come down to power, and even with all that and maybe a 28/22nm process, it still wont be as good as a desktop, because the cpu simply wont be as powerful as a desktop cpu

    Microsoft's 'Durango' development kits are already in developers' hands, and the CPU at the heart of the machine is a monster. Where 360 has a three-core CPU from 2005, Durango promises four hardware cores, each divided into four logical cores - a spec greater than anything even the most hardcore PC gamer has on his desktop
    apparently this guy has never heard of skulltrail, SR-2 and the SR-X, or the rofl levels of performance of a single 6 core cpu at 4.6Ghz running 4 gpus

    please tell me it will perform similar to amd cpu's? (bwhahaha next gen consoles making me laugh already)
    also yes one cannot simply grasp the idea of a i7-3960x @4,6 with a quad gpu setup to back it up :P (in defense that that thing is pretty close to becomming a concious being instead of just a pc)

    Sigh. I bet you all will be sulking when it still performs better than the setups you listed.


    And there is nothing wrong with AMD CPUs.

    cmon the odds of that happening are pretty much the same and 2012 being the end of the world maya yadada.

    I think it's quite apt to remind you that I don't see a GPU mentioned...

    You can believe what you want, but it will run games much, much, much smoother than a comparable PC.

    at the price of what settings? console market will never equal high end gaming rigs like those around here are becoming more and more common imo.

    @drunken last gpu that was mentioned for the xbox was some ati mid range card worth about $75 and released in 2009 iirc

    ... If it had ran Windows.
    And then, it would be true.
    But it does not (in games). So it will not.

    And there is nothing wrong with AMD CPUs.

    the beauty of something like a SR-X is VT-d, you can run a dual 2687 xeon setup with 4 gtx-690s, or a complement of GPUs, say 2 690s, 4 7970s and a firepro or quadro, then build VMs with allocated GPU power, game A runs well with crossfire? load up 3 7970s into your VM and game away, while using the 690s for compute of a render, and take no performance hit for either application

    what makes me sad is that the few people with an SR-X build take advantage of almost none of it's capability, most end up being show builds, but that is something that a console wont match, not at least for a few more generations

    and as for graphics and smoothness, consoles have never really matched PC, but they are better for simply gaming, or at least they used to, it used to be you just put your game in and played, but now with constant downloading of patches and updates, and dealing with hard drive space, there really is no advantage to using a console anymore

    I actually know how it works.
    And while future gaming will likely get multi-core support, we're not there yet so I can only take that into account; More threads won't make it better for gaming. It will however probably make the CPUs have good enough bandwidth to not limit the GPUs though.

    And I'd say consoles were more than competetive in their early cycles.

    I'm not saying they'll be superior for years and years, but for maybe the first 6 months, the console experience might surprise a few.

    So it is a bit like the octo-core in the current PS3 then?

    Don't get me wrong, it is about time that consoles get more powerful, maybe we'll get some games that are designed for better hardware than a wolfdale era dual core and something like an 8400 GTS

    Also, tetrisGOAT is a nerd.
    Yeah, I was thinking something along the lines of the GS3 4G.

    Pretty much this.

    I'd like to start getting games that aren't being artificially gimped so they can meet hardware requirements for shitty consoles.
