For the first time since Xbox 360 release in 2005. Consoles will have more powerful GPU than any ATI/AMD GPU.

Yes, yes I know that 6800XT and the 6900XT just got announced but they will be released after November 10th. This is similar to 2005 when the Xenos GPU for the Xbox 360 was better than any ATI or even nVidia GPU at the the time. The X1800XT was released later in November of 2005 that was slightly powerful and the Xenos even had some features like tesselation features that wasn't prominently featured until later ATI/AMD GPUs.

So, I am impressed with Microsoft to actually put out a GPU on their consoles that will be for a brief period will be the most powerful GPU on consoles that even AMD GPUs won't be able to match. 52 CUs @ 1.825 GHz isn't that bad for a $500 console.

Here's to hoping we will see much bigger graphics leaps this generation compared to last generation which was meh.

What we should be celebrating. Consoles may not hold back PC Gaming for the first time in a while.

While "hardcore" gamers and technophiles care, the rest of us do not.

Xbox Series X: 12 Teraflops

6800: 16.7 teraflops

6800 XT: 20.74 Teraflops

6900 XT: 23.04 Teraflops

That's almost an x2 jump for an extra $500.

---

Then there is Nvidia. Although teraflops don't always translate to better performance.

3090: 36 teraflops

3080: 29.7 teraflops

I'm a little surprised AMD didn't completely pooped on consoles.

March 2012 = 7850/7870 ballpark PS4/XB1 gpus

Nov 2013 = PS4

We still don't have Low end PC desktop RDNA 2 today ballpark PS5 gpu. Then again PS5 isn't really RDNA 2 lol.

Oh man, what i wouldn't give to have the power of the X inside my PS5. Instead, i am stuck with a system that can't handle AssCreed in 4k. I hate the situation my cow population is in.

I know that tormy and griffy are reassuring us that everything will be fine, but how can i take them seriously when the system can't handle last gen games in 4k and the box says 8k on the front? It distracts me, it infuriates me, and at the end of the day, it frustrates me.

Look at sales no one cares about AMD GPUs.

RTX 2080 Ti existed last year!... Xbox Series X is weaker, it needs another 4 tflops to beat it according to AMD with the 6800 GPU.

The reason OP is saying that is because it means the consoles have GPU’s on par or faster than the top dog from AMD’s last generation. This is a good thing because when the PS4/X1 dropped, they could barely beat the top-tiers from 3 gens before.

IF only there was another major GPU maker with a product out that can compete with consoles at launch.

Yes, I haven't thought of it that way but you are right. PS4/X1 GPU was frankly embarrassing in how it underperformed.

Not necessarily true, maybe in the high end. tflops doesn't equate to performance always.

Could be the other way around. Microsoft actually tried to put out a descent GPU.

Maybe intel with their DG2, coming next year possibly.
