PS3. 3 Years Too Late?
PlayStation 3: Everything We Know from 1UP.com
Are Sony about to choke on the PS3? Will it be the *significantly* more powerful than anything else out there?
"The driving force behind the PlayStation 3 will be the 3.2GHz Cell processor, a multi-core processor designed to handle multiple tasks simultaneously, and scale to meet the needs of each task accordingly. The graphics will be powered by the NVidia-designed 550 MHz RSX GPU, which NVidia claims will be more powerful than two GeForce 6800 Ultra video cards combined. In addition, the PS3 will have 256MB of main RAM, combined with 256MB of VRAM. The console will support TVs running in 1080p progressive scan mode, and will be capable of running sound in Dolby 5.1, DTS and LPCM. It will also have a 2.5" detachable hard drive, although little information, such as how much storage space it will offer, has been announced just yet."
Funny really, these specs sounded so incredible at the beginning of last year . . . how quickly things change - welcome to the wonderful world of high end gadgets, by the time the PS3 hits the selves in the UK it will be dwarfed by the power of a cheap Dell laptop. Dare I say, I think Microsoft might win this round? (¬_¬)
