EA EVP and CTO, Rajat Taneja, has revealed that the next-gen consoles are a generation ahead than current gen PCs.
He praises their SOC architecture, unique design of the hardware and other things. It seems the game publishers are pleased with the technological leap Sony and Microsoft have done.
“These architectures are a generation ahead of the highest end PC on the market and their unique design of the hardware, the underlying operating system and the live service layer create one of the most compelling platforms to reimagine game mechanics,” he wrote in a Linkedin post.
“Our benchmarks on just the video and audio performance are 8-10 times superior to the current gen. The compute capabilities of these platforms and the data transfer speeds we can now bank on, essentially removes any notion of rationing of systems resources for our game engines.”
The Xbox One was revealed recently by Microsoft and the PS4 was revealed back in February. You can check out the specs comparison here.
