Holy shit that was super bad, even by GDC standards which are technically interesting.
His choice of words were really poor and the explanation felt like he's talking to little children - it's insulting even.
Regarding his audio fetish I reckon it has to do with SNE's purchase a while back of: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audiokinetic
We still don't know the price.
XSX is more powerful but probably more expensive. PS5 with this specs at 399 would be ok.
Considering XSX have a fixed GPU clock, 1.825mhz which is quite high per se, it's very unlikey PS5 will mantain 2.23 most of the time. Even discrete GPU struggle to mantain clock over 2ghz. Rx5700 have a 1.9ghz boost clock.
Keep it simple: PS5 9 TF vs XSX 12TF.
Wait, what? Mark Cerny said 10.3TF. So shouldn't it be 10TF vs 12TF? Are you are a system/hardware engineer? I need more explanation on this? Are we just making guesses are we assuming? I'm genuinely curious, as it seems there are very many experts in this thread breaking this down.
I enjoyed it, but I always love hearing Cerny talk about this technical stuff. I'm sure they will have a slick hardware reveal presentation soon.
Remember, this was just a GDC presentation that was probably supposed to have been held at the conference today, if it hadn't been cancelled. They should have messaged that point better, though, I agree.
sony better have some bangin exclusives. But I am nit holding much hop as they seem hell bent on making 3rd person action adventure narrative heavy games with mediocre rpg-lite elements and i am boredwith that.
