Nvidia has recently revealed that the next gen mobile grsaphic processors will outperform the 360 and PS3

This was obviously going to happen nvidia.

Ok? They will beat out last gen consoles....That's cute. What about the PS4 and Nextbox?

Why do they have to do get all defensive? It's like they feeled threatened and they're arguing against nothing.

Is it supposed to be surprising that mobile hardware of this year beats console hardware that's going on eight years of age?

I would say its just pathetic, bragging about a mobile processor outperforming 7 year old hardware.  Well congrats Nvidia

Yes it is. Or don't you think playing games with Killzone 3 like graphics on your phone isn't impressive?

No suprise. A present day device that costs £500.00 odd for an unlocked version is more powerful than an 8 year old devise that costs a third the price.

The big difference is that mobile devises such as smartphones are way smaller than a Xbox 360 or PS3 and they run on a battery, so having the same processing power as a Xbox 360 or PS3 on a smartphone is pretty damn impressive.

Yeah, I read the article and I didn't get the impression that they were "bashing consoles;" it seemed more like they were just using console quality as a reference point. People know what kind of graphics quality they can get on a PS3/360. When you say that your mobile processor can produce console like quality, people immediately get it. That's all I took from it at least.

Qualcomm must have caused some serious hurt for Tegra 4. Btw, the Adreno 320 is an AMD design i.e. mini-Xenos IP.

Its actually a bit weird seeing the guys at Nvidia act like this.

then again the atrocious battery life that goes hand in hands with smartphones and the fact little to no apps will really make use of the power make it pretty much a point that people wont care about. Look at the iPhone its borderline useless if you use it for anything but phoning when it comes to battery consumption or playing MP3s.Too much power in a small device looks good on paper but in practice absolutely hobbled by battery design.

I think its because AMD go the next gen consoles locked down and NVidia no matter how they try to shrug it off, lose a lot of sales from that deal. Think, if they had one console, and it sold 71 million over a generation, that's a lot of sales for their hardware. This coming generation, they get nothing since AMD snatched it all.

They probably thought with the state console gaming is in right now that it wouldnt be profitable in the long run. The console has to be a success for them to make any decent profit before price cuts and considering whats going on with the WiiU right now it looks like Nvidia may have made the right decision. Hopefully AMD survive this. It would suck if the only thing we had was Nvidia, as no competition means their prices will likely go up.

#26 Posted by Razor_defiace (1618 posts) -

Nvidia is so butthurt that jelly is coming out in force.  Am I doing this right gaiz? 

Though honestly Nvidia is known to overhype their products. Sometimes they deliver and sometimes they don't... well and mobile phones aren't going to replace PCs or consoles anytime soon, especially with the way they're supported with toilet game experiences.

Well that's true.  I understand that they would feel bitter and all, but its a business.  You would think that 1.  They wouldn't make their butthurt so publicly viewable and 2.  They would just get over it and keep pushing forward.

Crying about and dwelling on problems doesn't really help an individual, so of course its not helping a corporation.

I dunno.  It doesn't bother me, but it just seems really awkward of them.

How the hell ios this bashing anything? Guy is just stating a fact. When stating fact is a problem for you, the issue lies with you, NOT the facts.

 

Seriously? They are selling these things, a comparison with current gen consoles seems  like a great way to get accross their power, no?

 

People hear: more powerful than an Xbox 360, or 250 Stream processors at 800 Mhz!

 

Which are people going to intuitively understand more?

#31 Posted by KillzoneSnake (1863 posts) -

Yeah if you read... in the distant FUTURE mobile phones will be able to have this GPU... in the future yeah one day. And when they do its not like people will be playing games that look as good as PS3 games so... whats the point? I game on consoles not phones... bring on PS4 :D

then again the fact they dont list any of the downsides to how high powered devices absolutely munch through batteries like a stoner on the munchies makes it a bit of a moot point in my book sure its all dandy we have that power in smaller devices but man do smartphones eat batteries.

#34 Posted by arfy2 (1613 posts) -

This  is non- news.

 

Some time in the future mobile graphics technology takes over 7 year old console technology. Obviously that was going to happen. Then after that some point in the future before this mobile graphics chip goes on sale to the consumer they need to solve heat and power consumption issues. ORLY !?!

 

Btw I'm typing on my 4 year old laptop that has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. In my jacket pocket is a Note 2 with a quad core processor. I know there is still a gap in performance but this achievement is much more impressive than the trash talk above which is yet to happen and imo not likely for 1 to 2 years more.

 

I prefer NVIDIA to AMD but this is stupid. They need to fire their PR team.

Goes without saying that PC hardware is ahead of next gen consoles. Not financially viable having hardware that is beyond a card like a 680 crammed into a mass produced console.

How comes then , by your logic that is , they didnt say a word of those "facts" on previous , pre-release console generations? Maybe because some of those consoles powered by NVIDIA? hehe... Facts are facts but ... dont mention them whenever you are ... butthurt! Like NVIDIA is right now

Act like what ... ? The only thing in that article is a statement from the Vice President of Content & Technology for Nvidia, saying that the next batch of phones will outperform these two consoles. The reason for their mention is because the HD twins are popular. It doesn't matter how outdated they are, they're relevant now .

There's so much sh*tty exageration in this thread due to the thread title solely created to get hits, that it's funny.

Saying the PS3 is a better console than the 360 is still bashing the 360, even though its true

Eh? AMD advances the X86 ISA which underpins the X86 PCs and has the backing Intel's Havok Physics GPU (GCN).

http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Graphics-Cards/Borderlands-2-PhysX-Performance-and-PhysX-Comparison-GTX-680-and-HD-7970/GPU-

UPDATE: I did finally get an answer from Gearbox about the slow downs we were seeing on the AMD results. Apparently when larger collections of PhysX simulations are running on the CPU, those threads can take quite a bit longer than they would when running on the GPU. As a result, the CPU (and rest of the game engine code) becomes "blocked" waiting for a single thread to finish, which results in the lower CPU utilization we saw on the AMD results as well as the lower overall performance. Because PhysX is an NVIDIA engine, even if Gearbox chose to they likely couldn't add in additional multi-threaded capabilities to the PhysX code path so the slow down here is likely to stay.

NVIDIA gimps PhysX X86 CPU edition with a single thread version. NVIDIA is making multi-core X86 CPUs look bad.

Lol at consolites suddenly taking sides on PC hardware manufacturers, despite the fact it isn't the first time AMD is making console hardware, as did NVIDIA.
