Yes 25%

http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/nvidia-geforce-gtx-870-and-gtx-880-available-in-november.html

In a few months Nvidia will launch the new GTX 870 and GTX 880, early 2015 we will see the new monster single GPU from AMD 9 TFlops (10 TFlops+ if you OC, that is just crazy). Even single GPU's from january 2012 are 2 times more powerful than the most powerful next gen console. How to you feel about the next gen consoles becoming even more irrelevant? It is time for the console people to switch to PC gameing?

Look how much more powerful the 780 was over the ps360 but that didn't stop consoles from breaking sales records last year.

in few months, I'll be playing destiny, so I don't give a shit that some GPU is being released.

1.No, because hermits have to pay huge $$$ to upgrade to own those cards, and the majority of hermits have been shown to be cheap wads

780 for the card alone still cost around $700...$700!!!

2. No, because they are all still only going be used for playing up rezed console ports.

3. No, consoles still dictate the industry just like consoles did last gen and the biggest and best games will me made to be played optimally on consoles no matter how strong PC port machines are made.

behold the last highly praised and graphically impressive PC game on the most powerful hardware praised by hermits from last gen...compared to consoles.

and it still won't be able to play uncharted 4 nor guilty gear xrd. No game will take advantage of it beside maybe star citizen, so what is the point?

@MK-Professor And how much will this GTX 870/880 cost us? Twice the price of either the Xbox One or PS4? And that's for just the GPU -- what about the rest of the computer?

So answer me this -- why does every 'New GPU' thread require the TC to proclaim the demise of "console X" in the title and/or description?

Makes me wonder why they play PC games at all if they have to justify the hardware comparative to the console of the time.

Count up how much you've spent on video games over the years and it will $1000's. Video games are an expensive hobby, fact.

Because SW thats why. As it stands, the current gen of consoles are lagging way behind the PC. How this will pan out I don't know, will devs keep putting out 720p/60 or 1080/30 on consoles throughtout the whole gen? Or are consumers going to be pissed off and demand more of their games. PC gaming is getting easier and easier thanks to consoles actually. The whole plug and play mantra of the consoles is slowly making its way to PC. With Steam Big Picture mode you didn't even need to see your desktop.

I think now a lot of console only gamers are seeing what is on PC and then demanding it for consoles, why they can't get it on said consoles many are moving over to PC as their primary gaming platform to get access to all the extra toys whilst still keeping their consoles. Hell, thats what I did. I was a console only gamer before I built my own PC back in 2009 and I haven't looked back since.

That is no answer at all -- in anyway, shape or form. I didn't feel the need to justify the hardware I purchased, I merely bought what I wanted.

Why everytime a new GPU comes out does the TC feel the need to proclaim it so much better than "console X"....even if it is completely ridiculous like comparing the $3000 Titan Z to consoles.

try spending 400 on a pc and see if you can get better graphics than a ps4 or xbox one.

I mean I've just spent time racking up how much I'll need to spend to truly enjoy PC gaming, and it's going to cost me 2500 I mean seriously, until you can make PCs for around the 300 to 500 mark and get amazing results consoles will always be relevant and dictate the market, I mean all this PC's are amazing rubbish comes down to how much you spend and still then most of the games aren't that much better looking than consoles.

#19 Edited by KungfuKitten (20855 posts) -

I'm not sure that the consoles will need a new generation 4 years from now? I mean, if you aren't focusing on graphics anyway.
It feels like this generation will last as long as the previous one. The next generation of consoles will be very interesting. Maybe we will see 3 Wii's.

#20 Posted by yokofox33 (29367 posts) -

No, I'm not trembling in fear. I'm happy with my consoles, thanks. I PC game very infrequently.

#22 Edited by scottpsfan14 (3792 posts) -

Erm nope. I am quite confident that PS4 and XB1 will be quite servicable gaming platforms for the years to come. I actually might end up getting an 880 because they are said to be even cheaper than 780's at release. But my PS4, especially in 2015, will get a lot of attention.

Also lolmkprofessor thread.

I don't think consoles will ever disappear, but a lot of gamers are switching over which is really cool. The more Pc gaming grows, the more games and impressive technology we get.

#25 Edited by rosko123 (513 posts) -

I have both a gaming PC and a PS4 and I really don't give a shit what you game on but most of my friends play on console so that's where I spend most of my time. I spent a lot on my PC. The money you pay for a high end gfx card really isn't worth the difference.

#28 Edited by MiiiiV (331 posts) -

Hi-end gaming PCs are already more powerful and much more capable, it's obvious that they will be even further ahead in the future. It's certainly best to have a powerful gaming pc for all multiplats and pc games and at least one next gen console for the exclusives if one can afford it.
If one has to choose between a pc and a next gen console, it mostly comes down to personal preferences, pc is an ever evolving platform and most console only gamers aren't aware of the potential of hi-end PCs or they simply don't care. They just want to put in the game, sit in the couch and have fun or be immersed into a great adventure.

#29 Edited by PAL360 (26720 posts) -

No. PC will always be more powerful, and the gap will get bigger every year, but im sure that these consoles will be ok and improve due to optimization for quite some time. I just hope that this gen doesnt last as much as last one. 8 years is too long, 5 or 6 years would be perfect.

@clyde46: There is a difference between "on Video Games" and "To play video games on"

"On video games", includes video games, platforms and anything video game related

"To play video games on" includes video game platforms solely

At least they are begging for games to appear on another system as opposed to certain console users.

They were begging for games not to appear on other systems, trying to deny other people from enjoying more games.

#35 Posted by sailor232 (4442 posts) -

Yeah no games use the power of the cards out today. The only reason to get the high end cards would be to run all games at extreme resolutions, but then on top of an expensive card you will need to purchase an expensive monitor, very costly. I really want to upgrade when the new 800 series is out, only because my cards came out 4 years ago.

#36 Posted by scottpsfan14 (3792 posts) -

#39 Posted by StormyJoe (4901 posts) -

For some reason, PC gamers can never seem to understand that most console gamers do not want to play games on a PC - and it has nothing to do with graphics, it has to do with people like me thinking gaming on a PC sucks.

I love the whole "Character models is the most important thing to compare" with you numpties.... so cute.

but damn son, where are the jaggies in this cryengine game? I don't see any.... do you?

Game that switched direction and became lowest common denominator trash .... isn't that impressive? well clever you....

I suppose you can enjoy those 1st party games that look comparable to pc games for a year.... then wait the next 7 years for one year of comparable quality... such an epic win. congratulation :D

Minecraft.

Battlefield (which still doesn't look as good as the PC version... so much for console power)

Oh I'm sure destiny will be on there for a few months... until the next shooter comes out and that sudden need to think "new = better" kicks in with you lot.

#45 Posted by YearoftheSnake5 (7206 posts) -

No, because my Wii U is still going to get great games that the PC won't. I'll certainly be upgrading my graphics card to get the most out of The Witcher 3 this February. Had to upgrade earlier this year from my 275GTX to a 750Ti(2GB Maxwell version) because my old card was shedding virtual tears trying to play Rome II.

This is pretty much the main reason I'm not a big PC gamer. I'd include the Wii U in there as well. If all you care about are multiplat games and NO EXCLUSIVES on any game console at all, then stay on the PC.
