If that is the case then you and all the other Sony fans have nothing to worry about. But you telling me 4 months in to a new Generation "why don you get that?" is laughable. Time will tell. Specs don't lie, but the utilization of those specs is what I question.
Both machines have 8g RAM...but Sony took 3.5g for os, while MS currently has 3g reserved and about to give more back to Dev from what I understand. DX12 will supposedly help the X1 free up cpu load and it already has a more powerful theoretical cpu output on paper . The specs tell one story, the utilization of what's there could tell another.
Is MS full of crap?? Maybe. But like I said I'm not going to write off their tech 4 months into a generation. You can if you want. Free country. Again, if the Gap does not close , NOT IN SPECS, but in the final multiplat outputs by the end of the yea,r I will be the first to concede. Trust.
Problem is your questioning the wrong ones,the xbox one is weaker with a more complex memory setup which in nothing imply is better,i have to say this because some of you actually associate the word difficult with powerful or with the fact that it will unleash something latter on which isn't the case.
The PS4 is stronger,better design,has faster memory and abundant not just 32MB,is HSA and hUMA on its true forms,not some crappy work around that is not true form,with those things running against it the xbox one can't win that part period it just can't.
It not just power alone it way more than that.
The OS on the PS4 uses 3GB not 3.5 there is memory that can be use as well which is not tied to the OS,not to mention that sony did this to play it safe the PS4 in no way consume that much ram,where did you hear that MS will give more to the developers.? Is that another invention of yours.?
The PS4 already has a tool like DX 12 is call LibGNM and DX on xbox one already has some of those features to don't expect miracles from DX 12,why else you think the PS4 beat the xbox one on engine like substance?
Fun fact the xbox one CPU is 100mhz faster yet the PS4 one performs better odd isn't.? Yeah that is what happen when you run 3 OS,since running OS Hyper V has a 9 to 12% CPU cost as well HDD cost as well,maybe that is why xbox one games take so long to install,this is not invented by me is based on MS own measurements on Hyper V.
Oh and the PS4 hasn't even switch into heavy compute which will save even more CPU time,Physics on Killzone were done on the CPU,those will be done by compute on GPU which would free even more resources.
The Crew devs intentionally gimped the PS4 and said as much. I will never buy a game that does this. We will see how Destiny, Batman, Assassin's Creed etc compare this Fall...
They even gimped the PC version..
