Sour grapes

There’s a new generation of gaming, and it’s looking pretty fine. The PC platform though, will always be able to one-up consoles when it comes to pure graphics. And that’s something that the boss of hardware manufacturer Nvidia, feels pretty strongly about.

“It’s no longer possible for a console to be a better or more capable graphics platform than the PC,” Nvidia executive Tony Tamasi said to PC PowerPlay.

Certainly with the first PlayStation and PS2, in that era there weren’t really good graphics on the PC. Around the time of the PS2 is when 3D really started coming to the PC, but before that time 3D was the domain of Silicon Graphics and other 3D workstations. Sony, Sega or Nintendo could invest in bringing 3D graphics to a consumer platform. In fact, the PS2 was faster than a PC.

By the time of the Xbox 360 and PS3, the consoles were on par with the PC. If you look inside those boxes, they’re both powered by graphics technology by AMD or NVIDIA, because by that time all the graphics innovation was being done by PC graphics companies.

NVIDIA spends 1.5 billion US dollars per year on research and development in graphics, every year, and in the course of a console’s lifecycle we’ll spend over 10 billion dollars into graphics research.

Sony and Microsoft simply can’t afford to spend that kind of money. They just don’t have the investment capacity to match the PC guys; we can do it thanks to economy of scale, as we sell hundreds of millions of chips, year after year.

And according to Tamasi, PC hardware has gone in a new direction over the last couple of years. A direction that involves pushing its hardware to the bleeding edge of what’s possible. “The PC graphics industry wasn’t operating at the limits of device physics and power. If you wind back the clock, a high-end graphics card at that time was maybe 75W or 100W max. We weren’t building chips that were on the most advanced semiconductor process and were billions of transistors,” Tamasi said.

Now we’re building GPUs at the limits of what’s possible with fabrication techniques. Nobody can build anything bigger or more powerful than what is in the PC at the moment. It just is not possible, but that wasn’t the case in the last generation of consoles.

Taken to the theoretical limits, the best any console could ever do would be to ship a console that is equal to the best PC at that time. But then a year later it’s going to be slower, and it still wouldn’t be possible due to the power limits.

I’ll agree with Tamasi on the technological side of this debate. PC will always have a visual edge over consoles. But it’s an edge that few can afford. All that hardware costs quite a few pretty pennies, something that consoles can bypass with their more affordable pricing models. That, and it’s not a headache to have to constantly keep your hardware up to date.

That, and Tamasi sounds a tad bitter about the fact that the Playstation 4 and Xbox One will only be using hardware from its main rival, AMD.

      So you would rather have PS1 graphics with better gameplay and story than PS4 games? Its easy to dissmiss graphics as not important. Graphics greatly improve gameplay and immersion. Not much gameplay options with pong level graphics is there.

        Strangely, I just played Final Fantasy 9 on PS1 (a month or two ago) and that game still rocks, even with PS1 graphics. Actually, I still own a very old Nintendo 16bit and while the controller is a little suspect now, it’s still awesome to game on.

      PC gaming will always be way better than console. WHY ? I own both a console and a PC but I enjoy playing on PC because if the game gets old I can just download a mod and make it more fun.

      I have spent so many hours in that crappy RPG called Skyrim because of mods.

      Rome 2: Total war … someone released a mod and omf it is so much fun.

      True, graphics do not make a game good or bad but mods + graphics make it epic! 🙂

    I agree that consoles can never catch up to PC. But the price point is what seperates them (although you can build a PC worth about R6K – R7K that can perform the same as a PS4 or XBone currently).

    I’m an nVidia fan boy but this sounds more like a jab at AMD for getting the console gig

    and so the argument will start… and it will be “Graphics doesn’t make a game… The story line does.”

    and it will keep going for a day again and then die off…

    For some reason people view these things as mutually exclusive… I vote for best graphics AND best story line!

        I like my indie games, but in the end they still look pretty… Even, as an example, Hyper Light Drifter (If you don’t know about it check the KickStarter for it) the game is 8bit graphics and looks EPIC, but it still looks pretty and the theme is done really well…

          One of my all time favourite games, FTL, has really basic graphics, almost no storyline, but oh, what sweet gameplay!

    Nvidia just pissed off, that AMD is doing the next gen consoles. Yes pcs graphics will far surpass console games, but what matters is how many games never get released onto pc… Hmm let me see… Last of us hmmm Gta V just to name 2, should I say any more?

      Yea… Also upsets me…. All of the games, developed on PC’s, then tested using emulators on PC and bug checking to can work on a console using PC’s (microsoft even used a PC instead of the Xbox one to demo some of there games in an Xbox one shell) Then compiled to run on the console and then not released on PC…

      And lastly why i am upset… all the Xbox’s we all knew were PC hardware tweaked with its own OS, but PS is now the same, so can all the console junkies at least note that all the hardware now being used in the console is from PC’s and has been updated because of PC’s… no… instead you turn a blind eye that your actually getting the sloppy seconds, hand me down technology from the PC. The only thing keeping console alive is exclusive games and nothing else.

    As time ticks on the gap grows between PC and consoles but its the same as saying i bought a PC now and in a years its going to be on PAR with the newer PC’s…. the statement is obvious and everyone knows it.

    Only thing i like about consoles is that it forces the developers to work out new ways to get better gfx on lower spect systems and in the long run will benenfit the game industry as well as PC as they don’t need to be upgraded as often because of the inovation/limitation of the console.

    If it was not for exclusive games, then there would be not much need for consoles in my view, all that is needed is wireless controllers for your PC and all the game industry to agree on a spec of hardware to develop on and lastly, agree for the next 7 years they wont use better hardware.

    The real issue here is just how consoles themselves are no longer the bleeding edge of GFX. The Xbox 360 and PS3 had the best GPU’s on the market when they were released but looking at the next-gen, you are getting mid-range GPU’s that will be outdated come 26th Spetemper(Re: AMD 8 series launch).

    Consoles are also becoming insanely expensive to maintain from a user standpoint. Things like proprietary hardware and online subs atop of a game that costs 2x as much will negatively impact the console environment.

      lol, games cost around R100 more and the online subs are minimal.

      In August my son bought 3 recent games for his new PC at the same time as I bought one for my PS3. By the time he’s got the first one to actually run I was well into my game having had to go to the massive effort of putting the disk into the drive.

      I have a PC for exclusives in the same way that I have a 360 for exclusives but I won’t use the PC unless there is no other choice. My PC cost more than the PS3 and 360 combined and still can’t quite match the graphics of the consoles. I’m hoping that the PC-like architecture of the next gen of consoles will mean no more PC exclusives so we won’t have to hassle with driver updates, windows updates, etc., etc., for the rest of our lives.

    put a R300 for prepaid with your monstrous machine with a 1000w psu to just power everything , the difference in graphics is really not that spectacular but noticeable to geeks. Nvidia makes the graphic chips for most consoles anyway plus I can buy all types consoles for the price of a top range graphic card

    I own a console and a PC. I prefer PC because of just the amount of extra things I can do with a PC game.

    Minecraft = shitty graphics. Download a graphic mod + extra mods and it trumps the xbox minecraft version.

    Skyrim with mods looks better and plays better than the console version.

    I can talk about game modding for days on how it greatly improve and add extra gametime to a game.

    So yeah console fanboys, keep on dissing the PC gamers. Enjoy your vanilla games while i enjoy the game with so much more fun factor added with mods 😉

    I’ve observed this for a while now, and personally I don’t care for better graphics. As long as the game I’m playing is immersive enough there is no issue. The gameplay comes before the graphics. So yes, PCs will have better graphics but both consoles and PC will have great games. 😛

    PC also has an edge in terms of upgradeability. The PS4 and the XBONE will probably have outdated tech in a few years time.

    I smell some sour grapes from NVIDIA, we all know its true. Not one console owner (me included) can dispute the fact that PC’s will rule the graphics war. This is not news to anyone. I’d rather go and read more on GTA V. B)

    Here’s the thing, sure PC Graphics can be better than console, but if the graphics card alone costs more than the entire console and you still have to spend almost as much on a CPU….

    Currently there is no PC you can buy for under R3000.00 than can match the graphics of a PS3 which you can get for less than that by shopping around a little.
