PlayStation 3 GPU Less Powerful than GeForce 7800

Archived from groups: alt.games.video.sony-playstation2 (More info?)

Well, I have to admit that I was a little bias towards the PS3, but I really
did want it to be the power house they all made us believe it was going to
be, if only for the sake of raising the bar in terms of graphics and
computing power. So, i'm really disappointed to hear this. The Cell is
definitely not going to be able to compensate for this. I really hope the
next generation doesn't end up like this one, with underpowered PS3 ports
going to the Xbox360. One good thing this time around though is that Sony's
machine will have shader capabilities, and so i'm sure it will still look
great if they port them over to the 360.

    This is so funny, you Xflop idiots still don't get it!!!

    Look, the PS2's graphics chip was less than half as powerful as the GPU
    of the Xbox, but due to the incredibly powerful Emotion Engine the PS2
    is able to put out graphics on par or better than top Xbox titles.

    It's the same thing with PS3.
    Sony isn't stupid like Microsoft who thinks in PC terms.

    Xflop thinking = CPU + GPU = GPU does all graphics and is maxxed out at
    the start.

    Sony thinking CPU + GPU/GS = CPU+GPU/GS does graphics and isn't maxed
    out for a few years. And when it is maxed out it will be using all of
    the GPU/GS power plus a good 50% or more of the CPU power.

    Source is from the latest PSM. Nvidia spokesman is quoted with: "The GeForce
    7800 is almost identical to the RSX, the rsx is only slightly less
    powerful."

    I suggest you wait till you see the same game running side by side on
    PS3 and XBox360 and then decide which is better. Chances are they will
    look almost identical.

    So you mean you're the president of Bligmerk's fan club and yet you don't
    even get to plunge your meat into his polyp-infested rectum for it? Are you
    some kind of sadist? Or just a retarded twat?

    How am I the president of his fan club if I disagree with him on just about
    everything? Just because I recognize the fact that he has you in his back
    pocket? That he can make you jump just by snapping his fingers? lol.
    Binary indeed! You're so owned by Blig. If being intelligent enough to
    recognize that makes me his fan club president, then so be it. lol.

    Retarded twat, indeed!
