    This would really have looked better had Sony had something like XBox All Access for their platform. This would have truly allowed new PS5 owners to afford the console over time and get Sony a nice s...

    @Atzenkiller: It's largely going to come down to cache coherency and core to core latency. Given these monsters are designed for largely parallel workloads and the huge increase to SMT4 that's in thes...

    @The_Mighty_KELP: It's billion. If it were mere millions Apple would have snarfed it up in a heartbeat just to keep nVidia out of the equation yet again. No way Softbank would be taking a 99.999% loss...

    @WarGreymon77: Actually, nVidia does have the better GPUs. AMD hasn't had a true flagship GPU capable of matching nVidia's top end for several years now. The irony here is a lot of us wish AMD's GPUs ...

    Bleh. No Magical Drop. No Money Idol Exchanger. Not shelling out $500 for something missing those two. :)Oh, and no Viewpoint? It ain't a Neo Geo experience without Viewpoint.

  • squishytia posted a message on the post Sony's New Bravia TV Line Is "Ready For PlayStation 5".

    Ehhh...4k120 sounds great, until you realize what you're going to need to achieve it. First off, the console itself isn't capable of it without either sacrificing details (graphics options) or using ...
