At a conference in China, Nvidia reacted to the arrival of PS5 and Xbox Series X in 2020. According to the manufacturer, its RTX graphics cards are already more powerful.
Nvidia has dominated the PC graphics card market for several years, at least when it comes to performance.
However, when we take the video game market in the broad sense, AMD comes back in force since it is its Radeon (and Jaguar / Ryzen) products that we find in PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but also, the future 5 PlayStation and Xbox X Series.
If Nvidia succeeded in convincing Nintendo to use a Tegra chip in the Nintendo Switch, instead of the AMD chips used since the GameCube, the American manufacturer takes a dim view of the arrival of this new generation of console. Especially since the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X should be monsters of power.
Lenovo Y740 is more powerful than the PS5 and the Xbox Series X, says Nvidia
At a major conference at GTC China 2019, Nvidia boss Jensen Huang returned to all of the brand’s products, including its GeForce RTX graphics chips.
Gizchina News of the week
Those who have a keen eye can observe that during the presentation of graphics chips Nvidia promises that the Lenovo Y740 PC will be more efficient than the new generation consoles.
This PC will come with a GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics card. According to the technical characteristics of Nvidia, this chip offers theoretical performances of 12.89 TF (TéraFlops FP16).
This theoretical level is actually higher than what we expect from the Xbox Series X. Which would offer 12 TF according to rumors. Which correspond well to the double of the graphics performance promised by Microsoft compared to the Xbox One X at 6 TF.
On the other hand, these theoretical performances will certainly not be translated in the same way in practice. The games are generally better optimized when they are developed for a particular material. Rather than on PC and its infinity of variations.
Nevertheless, the performance of the RTX 2080 Max-Q is indeed impressive. Especially when you think of its integration into a laptop. Facing a console intended to be connected in a living room.
Hhhmmm its kinda stupid comparing a laptop with the nextgen consoles that are meant for home entertainment. Specially when the price is 2 to 3 folds or even higher than the srp of the upcoming consoles.
Bouhouhou Nvidia not happy, bouhouhou Nvidia weren’t chosen to participate to the next gen consoles, bouhouhou Nvidia better anyway, bouhouhou… How much costs that Y740 and how much for for the consoles? I’m pretty sure Y740 won’t be as powerful as nex Xbox series or ps5. Ridiculous.
More like the laptop will be more powerful but why does that matter no one will buy it that has any sense the consoles will outsell the laptops tenfold boohoo I’m NVIDIA pay attention to me I have a bigger stick and I want to swing it around but I still won’t make as March money NVIDIA are just embarrassing themselves at this point go home nerd and let people enjoy their respected consoles in peace
I love when people compare USD $1,500+ laptops to a gaming console.
So true! But let them enjoy the money they spent.
I was that person twice and had a lot of fun and would over a console any day, but it’s not comparable.
No laptap with an rtx 2080 would be under 2k. Even if, this isnt a fair comparison, buying the rtx card alone cost double an entire console, and youd still have to account for all the other pc components and cost. Nvidia is obvously threatened if the first thing they compare next gen consoles to is the rtx 2080. If consoles match even the 2070 thats huge in my opinion. Optimization is also much better on console side…xbox 1 x runs metro exodus in native 4k and it only costs 350 right now, would a 350 dollar pc get you any Where close to that number?
One thing this douchebag didn’t think of most of us don’t want to be hunched over a computer most of us enjoy sitting on our couches playing video games good time to unwind most of us are money conscious and rather get more bang for the buck then spending on over priced laptop that will be obsolete again soon where is consoles they stay relevant until you’re bored with it which is basically never the 360 still going the proof is in the pudding this guys just a jackass waving his stick around thinking it’s bigger than everybody else’s no one cares get it through your head we want to play games we’re not all tech nerds that care about numbers we want an experience that we remember forever and that experience is best felt when you’re comfortable and not ending up with spine problems cause you sit over a computer all day I rest my case
Hmm be interesting to watch the CPU and GPU thermal throttling before it even hits it’s full power under load we’ve seen this time and time again sure it will still be powerful but let’s be real it’s not going to even be able to retain 12tf of power before it starts running hot and it throttles consoles on the other hand will not do that further more we’ve seen time and time again the resources it takes up to run pc games as compared to the better optimized console OS sure graphics can look better at times on PC but the PC will never be better optimized then a console period
