Is my PC more powerful than a PS4 or Xbox One

PC specs

i5 4690k (CPU)

Sapphire Radeon R9 290 Tri-X (GPU)

AsRock Z97 Pro 4 (motherboard)

Kingston Fury Red Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 (RAM)

Corsair Builder 600W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply

Asus VG248QE 144Hz 24.0" Monitor

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

I get about 75 FPS average on Battlefield 4 ultra 1080p. Seige of Shanghai i get lowest 48 or so FPS but average 60 FPS. I have overclocked the r9 290 tri x to 1130Mhz. Is this build more powerful than a PS4 or Xbox One? and also by how much? like a lot or a little.

    100% more powerful ! PS4 has iGPU kinda HD 7850 . R9 290 is far faster. XBox One is weaker than PS4.

  3. Definitely more powerful and you should have a much better experience playing games with that PC than with a PS4 or Xbox One.

    I just wanted to mention that the PS4's GPU in terms of power isn't going to perform like an R9 270X because the Ps4's GPU has 1152 shaders compared to 1280 in the R9 270X and the Core clock in the PS4's GPU is only running at 800MHz vs the R9 270X's 1000MHz and 1050MHz boost. So really the PS4's GPU is right in-between the R7 265 and R9 270.

    It is like comparing apples to oranges. Yes it is more powerful. But it also has a crap ton more overhead to deal with than a console does.
