Nvidia has revealed that PS4′s GPU is 3x slower than Nvidia’s Titan.
That shouldn’t be a surprise to many because the Titan costs $1000 and has a 3 teraflops and above computational performance. However, the PS4′s GPU is no slouch either and is supposed to be better than the Xbox 720′s GPU.
This echoes with all the reliable rumours that have been released so far. It’s also not clear whether Microsoft has done last minute changes to their system after the PS4′s specs were announced, but that seems like an unlikely thing at this stage because it will undoubtedly create a delay which they cannot afford.
Here’s the chart they presented at GDC 2013. (via Japanese site 4gamer)
Now according to this chart, it seems this data was provided by Jon Peddle Research to Nvidia, and presenting such a thing at GDC clearly means that they agree with the data somewhat.
This chart also reveals how the Xbox 360 GPU, Xenos, was much better than PS3′s RSX. In a way it kind of shows that these consoles surpassed PC tech at the time they were released in 2006, but it’s not going to same next generation due to massive advancements in PC tech. However, it’s still a great leap as far as console tech is concerned.
Microsoft’s reveal may completely change this though, so take this as a rumour for now.
