PS4 Rumored to Be More Powerful Than Xbox 720

The PlayStation 4 has a 50% raw power advantage over the Xbox 720, according to VG247.

After CES meetings, developer sources have allegedly said that the next PlayStation will have a run-capability of 1.84 teraflops, while the next Xbox will be able to achieve 1.23 teraflops. This translates into a 50% raw, computational power advantage for the PS4 over the Xbox 720.

The Xbox does win out when it comes to RAM, however. Microsoft’s console is said to have 8Gb of RAM, with 3Gb reserved for the OS, apps and security, leaving 4-5Gb for games. The PS4 will have 4Gb of RAM, with 1Gb reserved for for OS, security and apps, leaving some 3Gb for games.

Several media outlets will allegedly be leaking more PS4 and Xbox 720 info shortly.

I’m just waiting for the announcement that the new X-box won’t actually play video games any more…

The only thing that matters now is how easy the system is for developers to program for, if its too complex its not gonna matter how much more powerful it is, its the reason some xbox 360 games perform better than the same games on ps3.

Matt nailed it perfectly. The PS3 is already more powerful than the Xbox 360 yet has the most problems and issues with multiplatform games (Skyrim, AC3, Black Ops 2 just as recent examples)

As Razorfist said in one of his blog posts: RAM is important when it comes to game scope.

I’d rather have a system that may be a bit slower, but can run games with far bigger levels, than the other way round.

Why? Because I’m sick to death of shooting galleries
