Everyone ignoring the RAM, 4 Gig vs 8 Gig is f*cking huge in my eyes.

Difference between loading a whole level in memory, variation in textures, resolution of the textures.

Seems like an incredibly weak console. Maybe they let the info leak out there to make sony think they're dealing with a WiiU2 from microsoft so they wont upgrade their specs. Can't wait for the Orbit leaks, going to be insane. The DDR3 ram is really weak / slow and sony's blu ray drive will be faster as they invented blu ray and have all the secrets about it.

So is going to be a massive jump from the 360? Or more like the Wii was to the GameCube?

From raw peak performance we have:

720:
CPU: 102 GFLOPS
GPU: 1228 GFLOPS

360:
CPU: ~55 GFLOPS (can't find good source)
GPU: 240 GFLOPS


Edit: Corrected CPU performance

No one is ignoring the RAM, we just all already know it's a smaller cache of faster ram vs. a larger cache of slower RAM.

correct me if I'm wrong

but the memory is accessed over the North Bridge, which means that the CPU doesn't have an integrated memory controller like any modern PC CPU right ?

so it seems to be more of a custom CPU rather than "just" an AMD notebook processor in a different package ?

Both have their own pros and cons. VGLeaks are going to post Orbis' unveiling as well soon so it'll be fun comparing more clearer specs like these.

Double the CPU, 8 flops per cycle per core (4 ADD & 4 MULT per cycle).

Rumors say a good portion of that 8 gig is going to the OS while only a bit of the 4 is going. Then you have the whole bandwidth issue.

God I hope not. Touch screens and pads, motion controls and all that crap. Not for me. I just want a core gaming machine. Though I appreciate others have differing opinions.

It's just a different way of doing things and MS first party developers are already be used to EDRAM tiling. It also keeps the whole amount of esram bandwidth for gaming rather than for use in non gaming functions. Like a hard lock out for non gaming functions from the gaming side.

I don't understand why people are surprised by this. If you have read or listened to anyone talk at MS since the relase of the 360 you would know that they are sky high on general computing over there.

I think the rumored Orbis specs are better tbh. Still a lot of questions on how large a role the ram will play though. There are some interesting things you can do with an extra 2GB+ of ram.. but then there are some really neat things you can do with much faster ram. This is going to be an awesome generation to watch unfold.

I don't see how an 8-core x86 CPU capable of ~100 GFLOPS is going to be a breeze to port to a 3-core PPC giving ~15 GFLOPS, but someone more in the know may know....

How close ? I am asking this question because I like Nintendo games but still, I wanna play the rest of the industry's output also. And I don't really want to buy two or three consoles that each cost 400+ $.

Deferred renderers require you to have 5 frames worth of information. Because the ESram only fits a single frame, you need to swap the frames in and out of the ESram from the main memory, which eats up the main memory bandwidth. This is the same problem as on the 360.

think Google TV - connect your cable box/DVR into the xbox, Xbox is your main TV output, always on.

So you can watch live TV, get notifications from friends overlaid, jump right into a multiplayer game.

or view/search across all your media (DVR recordings, live TV, Netflix, Hulu plus etc) in one hit, and immediately start watching from wherever it is.

Looking at the cores, it is basically, two quad-core jaguars put together. Every single thing. L1 cache, everything.

6.2 mm squared die size then.

If this is true, we may see a bigger graphical difference between the future consoles than on the current ones, that gpu is significantly slower that the one on orbis.
