Well it’s been 7 years, not 5, and the title of the article is misleading. They were talking about streaming from storage being 100x faster. PS5 has a pci-e 4.0 nvme drive that does up to 5.5GB/s and 9GB/s compressed. Keep in mind current gen comes with an ancient 5400rpm mechanical drive. So the statement is true.
These new Intel CPUs, while the power consumption is embarrassing, still easily beats AMD in gaming. I really hope Ryzen 4000 does a little better in this regard, their 3700X is an excellent value I hope the 4700X delivers.
Agree on 60fps and that goes for anything 30fps, it's just a pathetic slideshow of a framerate. But I still love the game. Of course on PC we can have 144Hz and there is no going back. I really hope next-gen consoles 60fps becomes the bare minimum. These tech demos are not promising for framerate.
People complaining about anti-cheat what's wrong with these idiots. I would gladly have kernel level or whatever the most low level obtrusive anti-cheat there is in any game if it eliminates cheaters. It's the main reason online gaming gets ruined.
Okay so AMD got 3 generations out of their Ryzen motherboards where Intel usually gets 2 generations. Less impressive for AMD now, but I can certainly see why they need to revise the spec after 3 generations there are a lot of changes that you can't just address in software.
It's so crazy (and sad) to realize it'll be over 10 years between Elder Scrolls games. Skyrim came out in 2011. The baseline for games over the next few years will be pushing 16 CPU threads so it'll be a huge increase (baseline will be for next-gen consoles and will transfer over to PC too).
I'd be surprised if the X1X undercuts the PS5 in price given its more expensive GPU. Granted the rest of the components are similar or worse as far as I know (e.g. the slower storage and doesn't have separate audio processing on the Tempest). I expect both consoles to be $500. Especially considering they both require $60/year to play games online it should still be a considerable profit.
Personally, the only thing that would keep me from doing a new PC build around the same time with Zen 3 and RTX 3000 coming would be PS exclusives like Bloodborne.
