Another yawn speculation video until we actually see this crap in action, or hear I should say. I fully expect there to be at least a couple games on each platform, though nothing exciting gameplay wise, to fully embrace the 3d audio (Xbox has Hellblade for one) and all 3rd party games to sound pretty much the same.

Cause one having a dedicated sound chip comparable in power to the whole PS4 CPU and one not having a dedicated chip but instead depended on the main CPU is equal.....


Can't make this s*** up! LOL
You can make this s*** up because you or someone you're blindly parroting did.

All kinds of crap like that on GAF, which is where a lot of these guys get their info too. There are a couple people in that speculation thread that really want to do deep speculation, but they are pretty rare.

Yeah both consoles are offloading audio. Both are getting similar efficiencies to their CPU as a result. They have different custom chips. Sony's might be a bit more ambitious but we'll have to wait for those results. Either way, that ambition won't translate to better efficiencies to performance elsewhere. Just better audio. Which is where a lot of biased tech people have exposed themselves.

Dude there are CPU's in phones that are faster than the PS4 CPU.

Also note:

Even if the Xbox Series X didn't have a dedicated sound chip, the additional 2 teraflops of GPU performance could easily be used for such calculations, which utterly dwarfs the PS4's CPU.

Xbox Series X is the more powerful box. There's no two ways around that.

Well, if the audio tasks are suited to be massively parallelized, at least. But it doesn't matter so it doesn't matter. 🧐
