PS4 Has More Raw Power Than Xbox One

According to a recent comparison performed by Eurogamer comparing both the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, the PS4 apparently has 50% more raw power than the Xbox One GPU (graphics unit).

The Eurogamer author states:

"We know that both Xbox One and Playstation 4 are based on Radeon GCN architecture and we also  know that each compute unit is capable of 64 operations per clock,"

"So, again through a process of extrapolation from the drip-feed of hard facts, the make-up of the One's GPU is confirmed - 12 compute units each capable of 64 ops/clock gives us the 768 total revealed by Microsoft and thus, by extension, the 1.2 teraflop graphics core.

"So that's another tick on the Durango leaked spec that has been transposed acrross the final Xbox One architecture and the proof we need that Playstation 4's 18 CU graphics core has 50 per cent more raw power than the GPU in the new Microsoft console."


Microsoft just unveiled the new Xbox One with a ton of flashy features, such as voice activation, a new "Snap" mode which will literally allow you to run two separate applications simultaneously, as well as smart device integration, and some other pretty neat stuff.  However, there are a few things that concern us about the Xbox One, such as no mention of free-to-play games, or increased support of independent games developers to produce Indie titles for the new Xbox One.  Among these, Microsoft still has not confirmed whether or not the Xbox One will require an internet connection to perform basic functions.  Sony however has not only announced that they will have tons of free-to-play games, as well as give support to independent games developers to the extent that they can self-publish their own games, but the PS4 having more raw power than the Xbox One is definitely going to be added to our list of Xbox One concerns.

At least you can watch TV, and surf the internet at the same time :)


What next gen console are you guys leaning towards?  From what I've heard, I'm definitely favoring the PS4.

Thanks MP1ST and Eurogamer
