    Don't forget, UE5 is a cross platform engine, it's probably not going to be specifically coded to take advantage of novel PS5 architecture qualities. Doesn't take away from the fact that it's damn impressive for an inexpensive console.

    Why?

    Specifically, why does the GPU being the bottleneck encourage making the console the primary machine early?

    I also thought [as I was letting this all stew in back of my head for a while] that maybe Sony should have gone with the bigger slower GPU if they were going to maximize performance with the SSD in this way. More pipelines well fed should perform better, especially with optimization over time. Cores generally beat speed in the longevity department.

    because when the weakest common denominator is a gpu it means the most expensive part of the console will be fully exploited....make sense....good.


    please leave it there as its been simplified to an already low level.

    sorry man not trying to make you look dumb!! :(

    Do you guys know of videos that show xbox one series x abilities

    Honestly the GPU side of things might be where we need the least amount of upgrade past the increased speed and RT that we know we're already going to see. nVidia is already rumored to be negating RT perf hit with the 3000 series, let's see if AMD is going to be close to that as well since they are going to be 2 years past RT intro.

    We can speculate all night and all day, proof will be in the games we see next year or two.

    I saw that (i pretty much see all their vids hah), you do realize how much that thing costs right? Even the $70 Asus one you have to buy 4 SSD's.

    The first one is an Asus card for 4 NVMe drives.
    At 3:22 you can see him installing the NVMe drives, and its clearly a card that takes 8 drives.
