[QUOTE="tormentos"][QUOTE="TheXFiles88"]I am a cry baby? Lol. Look, you beleive in "RUMORS" which are best suited for you but rebuffed "REAL"TheXFiles88

Dude you know how many patents not only sony also MS had that they will never use,just because they patent something doesn't mean it will appear in a product.. In fact that patent is why some blind fanboys are saying the 720 will have 3 GPU,the 3 GPU in question all from the 8000 series 2 of them been top of the line 8970,the other 8850,there is no way in hell that MS will pack that unless the xbox 720 is the size of a huge tower with huge fans,and cost $1,500 dollars minimum.. The 8970 has a TDP of 250 Watts 1 alone is already to hot for the 720,let alone 2 of them + another 8850,ad to this ram,CPU we are looking at what a 700 watts console.? Please dude stop been a cry baby that just a lame patent MS did,to cash on any one who do something like that.

Lol, you still don't really understand the most basic fundamental architecture in video game consoles, dude. You just can not put the retail PC products in a video game console. It just doesn't work that way.

These are the custom built CPU & GPU in which IBM/AMD/M$ would remove any functions which are not applicable for games. Also, M$ has full control of the costs since they manuflacture these chips from a 3rd party such as Flexronics...

Also, the CPU & GPU may have multi-core structures, no multiple phycial CPU's & GPU's, just like the Xbox's Xenon design. If that pic doesn't satisfy you, how about this one. Same muiti-core CPU & GPU layout. So who is the cry baby now???

No actually you don't understand how consoles work,you spend to much money on hardware you loss a ton of cash,MS loss 4 billions on the original xbox and did not had 3 GPU,it loss 3.1 billions on the xbox 360 2.1 billion of the 3 were do to cost of production,MS was losing $125 dollar per unit on launch,and basically the only expensive things on the 360 were the Xenos and DDR3,the 360 did not had 3 GPU either. Don't tell me they have full control that is a joke those components cost money there is not way in hell that the 720 will have 3 GPU you can bookmark this post if you like,not only it would be prohibitive cost wise,but it would have a TDP way over console standards. The xbox 360 had only 1 top of the line GPU and RROD cost MS 1 billion,imagine what 3 GPU 2 of them top of the line would do in a small box.

[QUOTE="ronvalencia"][QUOTE="clyde46"] And that 8900 series GPU....clyde46
8970 OEM (rename 7970 Ghz Edition aka Tahiti XT2) has about 4.3 TFLOPs and >200 watts chip. You are looking at Silverstone's Mini-ITX SG07/SG08/SG09/SG10 level box with a matching power supply.

So its not going to be a regular GPU then?

With 200 watt budget, they could fit AMD Kaveri APU/7750 + 7850 and have a total chip size smaller than 1st gen PS3's CELL+RSX combo.

1st gen IBM CELL = 230 mm^2

1st gen NVIDIA RSX = 258 mm^2

Total die size: 488 mm^2.

------------

CPU: ~225.625 mm^2 for 28nm based Kaveri APU i.e. based on 32nm Trinity APU but with double X86 decoders and Radeon HD 7750 (8 CU) drop in replacement.

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7850 (16 CU) = 212 mm^2

The problem would be the PCB.

:lol:ORLY? Just a lame patent huh? Remember this leaked patent of the Xbox 360's Xenon. As I recall, when the leaked doc was posted on the internet, people proclaimed it as BS/Fake/would not happen since the top of the line CPU's at that time had only Dual-Core. People believed that there would be impossible for a console to have such a high-end CPU since the cost would be too high, just as what you had said. Look at what happened to the final specs of the Xbox 360? So, who is the crying baby now??? :lol:

Xbox 360's CPU design is on par with Intel Atom i.e. in-order dual instruction issue per cycle with half speed L2 cache. On LinuxPPC benchmarks, PPE @3.2Ghz ~= PPC 970 @ 1.6Ghz

It's nowhere near AMD K8 Athlon 64 X2 @3.0 Ghz i.e. AMD K8 ~= PPC 970.

A retail Radeon HD 7850 (20 CUs with 16 working CUs) can cost $159.99 USD(1). A Xbox 360 type games console is built around a GPU.

In terms of BOM, the cost for AMD A4-5300 APU($47.99) is the same as AMD A10-5800($117.00) i.e. you still get the same silicon with disabled processing elements. You can workout the profit margin between two products that uses the same APU silicon.

AMD and retailers are still making a small profit from A4-5300 APU. Sony/MS and AMD has alot room for negotiations. If Sony/MS can guarantee OEM orders for 5 to 10 years with volume numbers, AMD could lower it's asking price. Key part for AMD is selling it's products and gain profit. AMD could be using it's CPU IP as negotiation leverage over IBM and NVIDIA i.e. AMD's 2 for 1 price tactics.

Yet Gears of War looked better then anything on the PC when it released. Crysis came out couldnt be played on about 95% of peoples pc's the way it was advertised and the majority of consoel titles looked better then what was on pc. Not to mention Crysis was the exception not the rule hell it looked better then anything on pc for years to come as well. So yes look at history Consoles usually dominate for that first year of there release, the thing with the PS3 was it was only marginally better then the 360 because it was delayed so long.

Meh, I can tolerate a touchscreen if they give it a serious redesign. I know I heavily criticized the Wii U for having a touchscreen controller by calling it a gimmick (and I still do), but if this new controller can finally give us at least an alternative to the Dualshock, I'm all for it. The Dualshock's design just doesn't work for me right now.

Ha! The PC has so many more advantages to it than just graphics. Framerate is one of the biggest. I now have a 120hz BenQ monitor and everything looks just amazing in 120hz. Then there are the controls (mouse/keyboard, any possible gamepad, Novint Falcon, and whatever else you can think of). Then there are the genres (RTS, MOBA or whatever they are called, and MMO are almost non-existent on console and genres like racing sims, FPS, RPG, and puzzel have more quantity and quality on PC. So we don't have many JRPGs... who cares but the small few out there?). Then there are all the new Free2Play games. Then there are the great dedicated servers. Then there are the mods. Then there are the games with build in level editors (yea, consoles have one or two of those I guess). Then there are all the other great aspects like an open platform, digital push, Steam, customization/choices, and so much more.

Have fun missing out on all that. Oh, and PC games will still look better than all those PS3/4 exclusives. I keep my PS3 around for its exclusives and I'll do the same for the PS4. Just don't try to pass them off as better than what the PC has to offer.

Radeon HD 7850 already includes 20 CUs with 16 working CUs i.e. 4 failed due to minor yield issues. If AMD improves the minor yield issues, 18 CU enabled 7850+ is possible.

3 Radeon HD 8790M with 6 CUs would have a total of 18 CUs and ~105 watts.

#194 Posted by AM-Gamer (4905 posts) -

Yet Gears only has every best graphic award on pretty much every reputable website to back that up. I know it hurts your feelings to think a prebuilt console that any little kid can buy is going to outperform your current rig that you spend hundreds maybe event thousands of dollars on but the fact of the matter is it will as they always do. Thats the beauty of billions of dollars in research and development and buying parts at corporate discounts. I know for some reason hermits hope all consoels go the Wii U route but its doubtful that will be the case.

cool story bro then play on the pc , I personally like the exclsuives better ont he PS3 then on the PC plain and simple there better to me then what hte pc offers. I like action adventure and fighting and the pc is horrid on both those genres . In the mean time if im getting a steady 60fps im happy anything above that is an absolute waste of optimization. Hermits can justify there higher cost all they want ill enjoy superior optimzationa and high end performance for those first couple years for about a 3rd of the cost.

Sony is beginning to disappoint me, especially rumor surrounding them ditching the dual shock in favor for a LCD screen based controller like WiiU.

Rumors are rumors, yeah, but just look at the Move and Wiimote, both so damn similar.

Hopefully the rumor with it having a touchscreen controller is false. It isn't necessary.

And lol at some of these users saying they are ok with a touch screen controller after dogging Nintendo about theirs. Typical

[QUOTE="MK-Professor"]

both cpu and gpu look outdated even for today standards. I mean a real HD7970 is almost double the speed of a HD7970M

Desktop HD7970 uses AMD Tahiti XT GPU while HD7970M uses downclocked/gimped AMD Pitcairn XT (aka 7870)

----

Just to mess everybody up, AMD releases/allows 7870 model number with AMD "Tahiti" GPU i.e. 256bit VRAM + AMD "Tahiti" LE GPU e.g. PowerColor Radeon HD 7870 MYST Edition.

You have two GPU designs referring to the same "7870" model number. PowerColor's Radeon HD 7870 MYST Edition (AMD "Tahiti" LE) is ussualy faster than a reference "7870 Ghz Edition" (AMD Pitcairn XT).

the HD7970 performe around 60% faster in games than the HD7870 and the HD7970M is slower than the HD7870 so big differences here.

Also a real HD7970 have 4097 GFLOPS and the HD7970M have 2176 GFLOPS

It wouldn't be an atrocity if they design the controller modestly..

..that would not intrude on my gaming experience.
