[QUOTE="horgen123"]How much of an upgrade are we talking about? The_Last_Ride

The gpu is a bit faster now, and this info comes in handy for new things:

- 8GB Flash memory
- 15 special purpose processors
- 4 Command processors (2 compute, 2 graphics)
- SHAPE offloads >1 CPU core
- Memory coherency between CPU cores and GPU (also caches) - huma?
- Note that little arrow between the CPU and the ESRAM - CPU can read/write to/from the ESRAM? 

They're basically trying to do a lot of tricks to make up for the gpu.

5 GB < 7 GB RAM no matter how you do it. They might bave open GL, but it's still weaker 

PS4 only uses 5.5GB for games, the rest of the RAM goes to the OS.

Not from what i have heard, it uses 1.5 on max

All sources say around 5.5GB for games, I doubt 1.5GB would do all the multitasking in the PS4 at once between downloading games as you play them, recording gameplay all the time, live streaming, shutting the game off and picking where you left off, switching between applications, games and movies on the fly and more.

Best...feature...ever!

"When you buy a PS4 game on smartphone, it will wake your PS4 up to start downloading the game. PS4 goes back to sleep after that"

Microsoft May Be Considering a Digital Game Resale Marketplace

Being able to sell used digital games would be awesome!

Console RAM is usually bloated and now have more to do in and out of games!

I'm currently playing Splinter Cell Blacklist, and Saints Row IV. Both are awesome. :D

Well of course, though the gap isn't as big as it was a t 1st.

Saints Row IV's main story, while enjoyable and fun, is quite short for a Saints Row game.:/

I should be getting that game sometime.

To be honest it won't be that much of a difference at the end of the gen if it is one or two gigs of ram. Because they are basicly the same when it comes to everything else. I don't really care about uber hyper realistic awesome fantastic science fiction graphics! If it looks nice, it's awesome. But i can live fine without it. Just look at Dragon Age: Origins. Not the looker, but what a fantastic game. Same goes for Mass Effect. There were much prettier games at the time, but i couldn't care less

I never buy consoles soley for the graphics, that's PC's job, I buy them for the games. Anyone who buys a console for the graphics is doing it wrong.

i don't really play games for graphics at all. Sure Crysis, Battlefield, Uncharted, God of War, etc are pretty to look at, but i can manage without those graphics

#14023 Posted by valereth85 (4683 posts) -
Mny brother got it for me for my birthday, but I wanted to finish the games that I was in the middle of before I started it. I have done that, so I will start Dishonored later today.
#14024 Posted by The_Last_Ride (72948 posts) -
that sounds awesome, i don't really know what i should finish next. I just posted my backlog in my blog :?
#14025 Posted by valereth85 (4683 posts) -
My backlog is huge, and a lot of them are RPgs. IT is going to take decades to finish them all :P

Is this sarcasm? Isn't not getting a memory card a bad thing?

All sources say around 5.5GB for games, I doubt 1.5GB would do all the multitasking in the PS4 at once between downloading games as you play them, recording gameplay all the time, live streaming, shutting the game off and picking where you left off, switching between applications, games and movies on the fly and more.

It would be enough if developers cared about efficient coding...

it also depends on how you use your ps4. But the X1 is clearly meant for something other than just gaming, so it's clear it's less powerful and therefor uses more on it's OS' systems
