Default Re: Quick Question.

The PS3 (and other consoles) handle their games so well because they are not running a full OS, and the games are hard-coded for their specific hardware and software.

If you took the hardware of a high-end PC, put a custom made OS in it that was for gaming only, then wrote games for that setup only, it would shred ANYTHING MS or Sony could come up with right now.


Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600
Win7 Ult 64-bit - Func MS3 Mouse - CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mech Keyboard

The PS3 does have more power.
But the Cell processors were only designed specifically for a certain kind of processing capability

AMD is actually thinking about going along that path, in its future CPU's.
