So the PS3 came out boasting about its integrated HDMI port and waving it in the face of the Xbox 360. The PS3 could display the better picture because of this HDMI port, well that is what we were lead to believe.
Now Microsoft has come around and decided that it also wants to wave its HDMI port in everyone’s face and has now started incorporating the port in all of its models… So great they are now even and now that the dust has settled we can ask ourselves, what is HDMI and is it really better than component?
Well I guess it depends on who you ask but if I need answers about hardware then the only place that I go to is Tomshardware.
According to Tom.. (Okay fine Mark Raby but MarkRabys hardware doesn’t have the same ring to it).. where was I? Oh yeah there is a great article on Tomshardware comparing HDMI and Component and letting us know which is better.
In the end it does seem to be the case that component is actually better.. suprised? I was.. Anyway follow the link for the full article.
