Default AMD says Xbox 720 graphics to be good as Avatar

Quote:
Chip maker AMD has hinted that the Xbox 360's successor will be able to deliver computer graphics to match those in James Cameron's movie Avatar.

In an interview with the US incarnation of the Official Xbox Magazine, AMD exec Neal Robison claimed that gamers have "a lot to be excited about", the Examiner reports

Robison claims the AI and physics capabilities of the net-gen console would pave the way for every pedestrian in games such as Grand Theft Auto to have an individual mentality.

AMD hasn't confirm it is actually working on Microsoft's eagerly anticipated follow-up, but as Robison is director of independent software vendor relationships at AMD, it's probable that has been extensively speaking with games developers.

And AMD did provide the graphics chippery for the Xbox 360.

The Xbox 720 is rumoured to be unveiled at E3 next year.

Utter bull. A system with dual OC'd i7s and three GTX580s couldn't do that.

Thats my thoughts exactly. Consoles always trail pc's and their still years from that. Besides who wants a $2000 console that eats 600 watts...

Both you people seem to forget, consoles, are built to do things a PC can not when they are first launched, a console would crush a PC in performance/visual effects the first year or so when released normally, it's been this way for a long time now. But, as time goes by, the PC overtakes the console, though it takes upwards of 2-3 years to do so. A console is designed to have cutting edge graphics for 6-10 years.

What are you talking about? At launch the xbox, ps2. 360, and ps3 were no where close to what you could achieve on a pc. I bought my 360 the first day they were available at our local walmart only to bring it home and compare it to my pc. There was no comparison between the two. There is nothing a console could do at launch that a pc couldn't except play console exclusive games. They could not display true resolutions like 1920x1200, they don't support high level aa and af. It's not comparable and to say so shows a lack of knowledge.

When the xbox 360 and PS3 came out, no computer tech could match it, apparently you have poor memory, you don't always need all this AA/AF stuff when playing on a TV set, the difference between console/pc is resolution. Go back to when the 360 was released, what was the best ATI/Nvidia cards on the market? Hmm? Probably a 7xxx for nvidia, which was horrible.

Oblivion for example on my 7800gt in my spare rig looks a million times better than on my 360. I can play it @ 1920x1200 res, where on the xbox it is likely 1280x720 or like some games even lower. And yes aa and af go a long way towards making a game look better. an xbox 360 is no where near as capable as my 7800gt and athlon 4000+. Even today it can outshine my xbox when comparing the same game.

And whats your FPS in that? From what I've read 35 FPS is about average at 1024x768 with all settings maxed using that card. The framerate must be very low at 1920x1200 with that card.

I used to play Oblivion on a 6800GT @ 1280x1024 (my old, old PC). It was perfectly playable, and I imagine at 1080p it would have been playable still (I found Oblivion to be playable even at low framerates). Besides, 360 games are limited to 30FPS anyway (except for some exceptions when using a Slim model).

There hasn't been a console made that outperformed the PC I had when it was released, none, zero, nada.
