Stuff like this (http://ployer.com/archives/2005/06/xbox_360_will_h_1.php) is getting really old. Now ATI claims that the xbox 360 will have 5 times the power of any next generation console. What honestly will they think of next? lol

Wow, Talk about horribly inccorect PR!

At the ELSPA International Games Summit, ATI's Richard Huddy said: "[The GPU will have] 256 Gigabytes per second of render bandwidth... fifty times the power of the original Xbox." Huddy went on to say that the Xbox 360 would have, "Five times more [power] than any other next generation console."

The GPU does not have 256GB/sec render path, thats only the path to the eDram which will not be able to render textures or even models, all it can be used for is z and stencil operations, color and alpha processing, and anti aliasing. This is not rendering, THe actual GPU only has 22GB/sec of bandwidth which is lower then even the current desktop GPUs.

Hell, Im suprised Nintendo doesn't sue ATI now, He just broke the NDA between ATI and Nintendo on Nintendos NextGen Console. Nintendo has a strict NDA on the Revolutions Hardware...

Companies tend to pick a number somewhere and use it to market..
5x performance overall? not likely.. they prolly added up alot of bandwidths from all around the system, added them together and divided and moved them around and found that if you do this and that we got about 5x as much total bandwidth in our system here (the EDRAM being a huge portion of that), lets get with the PR!!!

Im 10x stronger then Schwarzenegger as a CS:S player
Prolly true, but totally irrelevant..

By just stating that nintendos GPU is weaker then Xbox hes disclosing some information that Nintendo did not want public. If they wanted people to know anything regarding thier technical specs they would have unveiled some of it at E3.

Uhh.. Nintendo said that themselves long ago.
