PS4 is A LOT more powerful than the competition
If there was any doubt before that PS4 has the edge on its rivals, this incendiary feature from cross-platform Bible Edge set the record straight once and for all. Interviewing a range of thirdparty developers on the differences between this year’s next-gen console rivals, Edge was told “that memory reads on PS4 are 40-50 per cent quicker than Xbox One, and its ALU (Arithmetic Logic Unit) is around 50 per cent faster. One basic example we were given suggested that without optimisation for either console, a platform-agnostic development build can run at around 30FPS in 1920×1080 on PS4, but it’ll run at “20-something” FPS in 1600×900 on Xbox One.” And, in more blunt terms: “Xbox One is weaker”. Yikes, talk about backing the right horse.
