Default Quick Question.

This may of been asked before, but i was wondering this:

The PS3 has 7 Core Processor, right. And it came as a whole untit as the PS3 which you can now get for just £300.

So the CPU im guessing probably cost Sony £100 a peice.

So howcome a Dual core Processor thats £150 has nowere neer the amont of processing power ?, or does it ? in comparison to a 7 Core PS3.

I'm not sure, if you can compare them, since the PS3 uses the Cell processor. I would think it's very different from desktop processors. I'm assuming the PS3's Cell processor is much more powerful....for gaming. I could be wrong....but I think overall, a high-end PC beats the PS3.

Yes, the Cell processors are techinically faster than desktop CPUs. But this doesnt mean its better because a graphics core chip is also faster than a CPU.

It should also be taken into consideration that Sony is probably not make any profit on the PS3's. They make their profit from games, accessories, dev. kits, etc.

Default Re: Quick Question.

just because the processor is just as fast doesn't mean it can beat a gaming rig lol. I mean theoretically speaking a ps3 cant handle crysalis but a pc can easily handle all of the ps3's games. I mean the 8 series cards from nvidia will rip the ps3 game library apart. So if ur asking is a ps3 slower at gaming ya it is, but it doesn't necessarily mean its processor is slower than a pc. You could argue that a ps3 still hasnt fully developed but even by the time it is fully developed it will be a dinosaur compared to a state of the art pc. Im no expert im just telling it how i see it.
