Thread: Anonymous developer trashes PS3 and Xbox 360 processors

  1. #1
    If you’re ready to get down, dirty, nitty, and gritty on the latest (and apparently not so greatest) generation of processors used in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, peep Anand’s analysis of some very insider information on the forthcoming systems by an unnamed game developer who’s worked on both boxes. If you’re comfortable making heads or tails of things like processor architecture, branch prediction, pipelining, etc., feel free to knock yourself out with the read, but straight up word on the street is that the Xbox CPU is only about twice as powerful as the 733MHz Pentium III used in the first Xbox in real world gaming situations, and supposedly Sony’s Cell isn’t all that much better. Of course, there are just so many factors in game system bottlenecks—and we’re not the kind of site to get gory on it here—but the bottom line is if you were super enthused about these two new powerhouse systems, prepare to get some of that piss and vinegar knocked out right quick.

    Twice as powerful as the original xbox, not PS3.

    So Nintendo would basically be in the clear if they stick to an already existing single core processor.

    However, the Xbox and PS3 will still sport very nice GPUs. Although the physics and AI would be that much different, at least we'll have pretty pictures in between the choppiness...
