This is something that PC gamers have consistently noticed, and even though AMD hardware can sometimes sport better specs, the performance would usually be uneven.

He also revealed what are his favourite tools of trade. He loves Visual Studio, Nvidia GPUs and Intel CPUs. AMD will be providing hardware for next-gen consoles and there shouldn’t be a worry about unoptimsed drivers because the platform holders will be handling all that.


Well there you go. He had also said earlier that consoles can offer 2x more performance than a similarly specc’ed PC.

    The PC God has spoken, Xbox One trumps PS4. The shitty AMD GPU Sony has is lame and cheap; With extreme DDR5 RAM XBox one will compete with high end PCs. Deal with it Sony slaves and Nintendo Drones!
