The 360 uses another IBM chip called the Xenon i believe, someone correct me if im wrong, which is a 3 core chip, but each core is capable of 2 threads at once, kinda making it like a 6 core CPU. Cant comment on the architecture, not sure what it would be closest to.
well I am getting a 22inch lcd WS monitor so my res is gonna be 1650x1050.
I want better performance then my 360 had.
what do I need to make this possible video card wise
it depends on what kind of work youre applying it too. in some ways the ps3 cannot be touched by any PC, in other ways it can be surpassed by a mid ranger
The majority of console games run at 30 FPS, including even the most popular ones such as Halo 3, Gears of War, and The Orange Box. Some games that do run at 60 FPS are Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Burnout: Paradise, but even those games have some frame rate dips here and there.so a athlon 64x2 5000+ and a 9600gt would be good?
I am still a little confused about the pc gaming.A console can hit and stay at 60fps but pc gaming is totally different.You can go as high as the moon on fps or you can be @0.
What makes pc gaming so different from consoles?
Are the console games just made better,as in they make sure the game will run @60fps all the time?
I think it is safe to say that the "work" is only gaming in this case, in which case both the 360 and PS3 will get stomped by a midrange PC
not really, depending on the methods you use and how you code the game the PS3 could theoretically stomp a high end PC. its too early to make any solid claims about the PS3's hardware
console are for lazy people that likes to sit on the couch with their dong in their hand while they play.
The PS3 only dominates when it comes to theoretical CPU performance - which doesn't mean squat for games. In terms of pretty graphics, a PC will easily win with a higher end current generation video card. But even though the PS3 has that limited CPU advantage, it won't help much as things like physics can/are being offloaded onto the GPU.
So no, it isn't too early the make any solid claims about the PS3's hardware, as the PS3 uses last generations technology - this is always a problem with consoles, and it always will be.
please explain why killzone 2 and gran turismo 5 @ 1080p look better than any PC game, including crysis? youre wrong, thats why. you dont know what the future holds, period.
Your blurry gameplay screenshot vs. a highly produced non-gameplay screenshot shows nothing.
Why are we fighting about this? I enjoy gaming on consoles and PC, who cares which one looks better. They are both fun.
