Ermm, ok.

Now I'm no PS3/console fanboi, and I happen to agree that gaming is best on a PC, but come one - surely you could have spent a tad more time organising your post so that it contained at least a tad bit of grammar / factual evidence.

You need more info than "computers". An average PC will lag as hell in most current games... You should of say "high-end, custom PC"....

I think you will get flamed.. But I'd have to say that the PCs do in fact lag.. Most PCs would run to the corner and cry if u tried to play any current games like the PS3 runs.. I do believe gaming is better on the PC, but I doubt the PS3 lagggs all too bad.. I mean, every game for it has been tested and tested again to ensure the optimum settings so not to lag.. I don't much believe in console gaming as real gaming so much, but you are just being over the top and probably bashing the PS3 for other reasons not presented in your argument here..

To each his own Lew (Lou, Loo(n)?)! If you hate the PS3 that's fine, but for most of the Joneses out there, the price of a pc that doesn't lag is out of reach. The price of a single graphics card that runs buttery smooth is nearly that of the PS3 by itself. Even if it does lag, that fact alone will keep consoles alive and well.

yah the 360 has been laggin and glitchen left and right since the beginning they are just now getting it working smooth. You only have 1 chance to get a console right but pcs are given another chance whenever new hardware comes out.
March 31, 2007 11:20:54 PM

ya i get your point

if you dont have the money for a core 2 duo and 8800gtx than get a ps3


but....why do all these console companies rush the consoles out?

spec wise isnt a 360 better than a ps3?(except for the cell processor when it gets corrected for perfection,but processors arent a huge part of gaming)

360 has the equalvalent of a oced x1900xtx in it(which if iam not wrong i heard it was dx10)

and the ps3 has the equalvalent of a 7800gtx?
March 31, 2007 11:53:44 PM

umm I think the 360 is around a x1800.. and its not really dx10, it has features of unified shaders stuff, and is the first of its kind, fist gpu to have these features.. And I think the PS3 is around 7900GTX... But one thing I tend to notice in colsoles, is the ammount of ram is less, but it is very fast ram DRR3 and 4, maybe its GDDR? Idk..
April 1, 2007 12:02:56 AM

Neither the 7800GTX or x1900xtx are DX10-compliant. I'm pretty sure that both consoles are actually not DX10-compliant, either. I'd provide links to back that up, but I'm lazy, and if you doubt it, go check the net. You'll find plenty of articles covering the lack of DX10 for both systems.

And what makes you think that consoles are rushed out? If a game lags, it's not necessarily due to the hardware in a console, it's due to the actual coding of the game itself. It's not like MS and Sony develop every single game that comes out for their systems...If you want something rendered to look rediculously good (a la Gears of War), you'll eventually hit a point where framerates suffer. Usually, it's not something that's a big deal. Most games don't lag...but a few do for a few seconds. And if a game looks like something I'd see walking down the streets, I'm not going to care if I see occasional lag. I mean, as long as it's completely playable, who really cares?

Stop guessing.
The R500/Xenos in the X360 is not around an X1800, they are just completely different, performance better and worse depending on the situation.

The RSX in the PS3 is not around a GF7900GTX, it's actually exactly like a GF7900GT on 90nm with 128bit memory.

So don't paint some stupid guess where the RSX>Xenos, because in reality it's the other way around, the Xenos>RSX.

As for RAM and other things, wanna know more use www.gooogle.com and maybe check the nice write-up @ Beyond3D on the Xenos.

As for the OP, who cares. Enough with the console/PC threads !!

Comparing a PS3 to a computer is pointless. It's like comparing a Philips screwdriver to a drill.
April 1, 2007 12:41:09 AM

I'm obviously not a PS3 fanboy either, but jeez...you make it sound like you've never experience lag on a PC, which I find hard to believe.

One thing I will say in defense of the PS3 is the PlayStation Network has so far been virtually flawless for online multiplayer. Makes Resistance a whole lot more fun when you have 40-player death matches and never have to worry about crashing, lags, or other BS.

wow, you are a dedicated poster to toms hardware forums and you say the PC doesn't lag? where did you pull that out of, your ass?

PC's do lag, even the best ones lag at times......cough* supreme commander cough*



the next time you post something give a little more evidence with your claim such as what game you played and what you mean by lag. Maybe your just trying to play online but your internet connection sucks. Maybe you are playing oblivion, which destroys even the most powerful PC's at times.

Everything lags under load even a 24 processor blade server lags when you max it out even a cluster of them.

i find it sad u kno so little, besides the fact that the360s gpu beats the ps3 gpu in numbers by small margins until u take a look at shader operations per second where the ps3 almost doubles the 360....

and games on ps3 dont lag u moron. hell gears of war lags on 360 i dont see u complaining about that. computers dont lag? aaahhhahahaha. cpus arent important in gaming? AAHAHAAAA... consdering u obviously have no idea what the cell does for the ps3 u shoudlnt be talking

btw none of the consoles are dx10, a x1800 vs 7800 is more accurate. dont give me that has 48 shaders bs. 360 oblivion has 0 AF, if dx10 cards or even x1900 cant do that u woudl kill urself
April 1, 2007 4:22:18 AM

motorstorm lags like crazy. it would lag on my comp too though

Either or, the point has been made.
April 1, 2007 7:52:27 AM

I own MotorStorm and mine doesn't lag so its just you. Ofcourse nothing runs flawlessly but mine doesn't LAG LIKE CRAZY!!!! You really don't know anything about the system and how it compares to a pc so you shouldn't talk and use CAPS and !!!!!!. IMO I think computers are better in general but I always like playing my console games on my t.v. ,and not a smaller computer screen ,and sitting on my couch sometimes. They both have their places in this world and should not be compared side by side because of all the differences. Consoles are consoles and computers are computers. Don't try to make them the same thing because they're not.

I wish. I downloaded them from another forum. I hope to use them more in the future. Theres a great one from Yoda, but I'm not sure I can use it here. When they added the words, they included one that isn't "family friendly". I'll either have to make my own, or edit the one they made. As I said, I have more I hope to use.
