Looks like MS has em beat on paper and on release date...

paper? The specs of the PS3 destroy the Xbox 360...

Yeah, no kidding!

I posted in the wrong forum and they moved it here...

Can anyone tell me what all those connectors on the back are? I am probably daydreaming, but are there two HDMI outputs? :confused:

Look in the main PS3 Thread... THis one should be closed to remove confusion and the other renamed...

I disagree. Don't compare meaningless things like FP operations per second that don't add up in real world. I look at things like the EDRAM on the ATi chip in XB:

256 GB/s memory bandwidth to EDRAM

Embedded DRAM is a massive advantage that will let the ATi just tear up that NV chip. I also don't buy the promises of the "Cell", and consider it BS marchitecture. Remember the "emotion engine"? Sony is notorious for BS. Xbox looks to have more rendering power as well as CPU power. Please don't compare "550MHz" to "500MHz" video card clockspeed either, another meaningless spec.

That EDRAM is only 10MBs...With the PS2 they only showed off Tech Demos during its unveiling, here we have demos from developers, NOT SONY!

The PS3's Main Ram is alone as fast in clocks with the Xbox 360's CPU, and the GPU uses dedicated Ram so developers wont have to think about how to split up the systems ram for optimal performance like the Xbox 360s.

I've got a wait and see stance. Cell is at this point still a myth/legend. Nothing has been quantitatively done to characterize performance of either design. For all we know the 360's CPU's are garbage. You may have a point in the memory bandwidth/embedded dram issue. However, this stuff all still has to travel over a bus either from the CPU to the GPU or vice versa in certain cases.

We just don't know enough at this point.

There is one thing for certain though, Sony picked out better demos. It may be "speculated realtime" but I'm still impressed :D
