KeokeN on Next-Gen: We Don’t See Many Differences Between PS5 & XSX; Tempest Will Free CPU Resources

The computing power of the new consoles is very promising, and we're very excited to see ray tracing come to next-gen consoles. It is difficult to say since we don't know the exact ray tracing specifications yet, but early snippets of info do suggest similar performance to an RTX 2070 Super, which will definitely be enough for similar results to what we have now on PC.

For now, we don't see too many differences, they seem to be competing well against each other and both are pushing new boundaries.
Audio will always play a crucial role in our games and the next generation of consoles boasts a host of fantastic audio features. It looks like Tempest will free up CPU that we used to need for audio, so that leaves room for us to use for other aspects of the game. The HRTF functionality seems particularly interesting, too. We're also excited about Project Acoustic's wave-based technology. It's all very promising and we're looking into how it would tie into our existing workflow and technology.

Everyone is a winner really. Pick your poison.

On the xbox side of things, high frame rates, great ray tracing and higher Resolutions.

From the ps5 perspective, high frames rates and resolutions. That State of the art sound engine is going to be simply incredible once games take advantage of it. Then there is that new controller with all its advanced haptic features.
Then there's the blazing fast ssd, next to zero load times. Have i missed anything.

Oh yer Games, This next generation is going to blow people's MINDS.

Getting a bit to excited now.

I kind of wish I knew what mod banned me from this thread, claiming it was low effort. I was under the impression that when you read it, the reader could visualize with their mind what was happening behind the scenes at Epic.

eh oh well. What's happening in here? GIF's of people without eyes? Clearly we are still on the rails in this thread.

Does anyone think the XSX will get slightly increased clocks before launch? Or will they stay as they are to prevent loud fan noise?
Yes I understand that last gen the xb1 got its clock bumped up before release... that’s because there was extra power/TDP available. Compare the xb1 gpu to its pc gpu equivalent - xb1 had a much higher TDP.

This time round MS don’t have that luxury. So no, there won’t be a clock bump - the Xsex will be using slower clocks until they do an Xsex pro.

It’s gonna be a straight fight, 15% less tflops in PS5 vs 20% slower clocks on the Xsex.

And the winners will be .... ? I’d love to say gamers but let’s wait and see on that.

Personally I’m (still) confident there won’t be any practical difference when it comes to directly comparable titles (That’s 3rd party multiplat games).

1st plat is down to subjectivity so I don’t wanna compare those.

So they lied about that in may, how many other thing they will lie about.
Now wait can it be shown that MS essentially lied? I can see them changing plans but intent to deceive or mislead concerning their showcase events? I don’t know about that.
