The PS3 looks so much better than the X360,i just hope that everything they said is "real time" graphics is actually real time graphics.

The PS3's price is set at $399, but it costs sony $494 to make, and that's with the Cell processor, custom make Kick-*** graphics, a Blu-ray drive, 9 bluetooth controllers, i think there's a card reader for SD and such,around 4 or 5 usb ports, support for 2 HDTV's at one time (sweet just like a dual monitor PC), however big a hard drive it has, and a bunch of other **** all selling for $399!!!

I'm pretty sure the PS3 uses a modified G71 Nvidia core @ 550mhz, the same as the 7900 GTX. The X360's core is a version of the X1900 GPU with unified shader architecture, but is core speed is only 500mhz where as a PC X1900 XTX is at 650mhz (XT is at 625mhz). The Xbox 360 has 512MB of GDDR3 RAM @ 700mhz using a unified memory architecture (System and GPU use same RAM) while the PS3 has 256MB of DDR RAM and 256MB GDDR3 VRAM. Computers at the moment go up to 2GB+ DDR2 or DDR and 512MB VRAM, but remember in a console RAM goes a long way (the Xbox only had 64MB and the PS2 has 32MB).

The G80/R600 is going to kill the PS3's and 360's GPUs, with raw power and DX10, SM 4.0, and other features.

And to top off the Oblivion comparison, if you have a X1800/X1900 card you can enable HDR w/ AA.
