Not the most in-deepth but it shows how the better-known consoles stack up comapred to each other.

Thanks for the post! I found it pretty interesting. I've always wondered exactly how big the original Xbox hard drive was. After all these years I now know that it is 8 GB's. Every Xbox I've seen always said 50,000 units free, or blocks, or something like that

Hmmm...that is interesting.

The PS3 can do twice the amount of FLOPS. I always wondered about that.

Ha, if you look at the Playstation generations; the PS1 had a 33 mhz processor, the PS2 a 300 mhz, and the PS3 a 3.2 Ghz processor.

Now gimme a 3.2 ghz decacore on the next gen plox. :D

The interesting thing is that the Sega Saturn was actually stronger than the PS1. Also, Dreamcast had more V-RAM than PS2 which may explain the slight texture advantage it had over it.

PS3 has a better CPU but a worse GPU than the 360.

Ye but I was talking about the increase in cpuspeed in just the PS line, it being interesting how they all increase in speed 10 times over their predecessor.

Still a shame that the Saturn failed hard. I would have liked a current gen Sega console.
