Ok so one of my friends say he is waiting for the PS3 because it has 7 graphics cards (so therefore it must have awesome graphics) so he claims and well that just sounds like blasphemy.

I've Looked at the specs for the PS3 and I have seen no indication at all of there being seven graphics cards.

So my question is what would be the point of having 7 graphics cards in a computer or a console, and does the PS3 have this many graphics cards?

Im betting on X360 powerful, which isn't that powerful considering what PC's can do now.

Remember I'm the one who said it was blasphemy I am no idiot sir. I just needed more opinions to give him proof that he was misinformed.

It has a single graphics card.

It doesn't even have 7 processors. It has 7 SPE's slaved to a CPU.

yeah he prolly didnt really understand something he read and mistook the SPE units in the cell proccessor for GPUs or somesuch..
It has a GPU similar to the 7900GTX I think.. something close to the G7x series from Nvidia anyway.. the Cell processor, that is fundamentally very different from our x86 CPUs, and if Im not mistaken 512mb shared GDDR3 system/GPU memory.
havent really followed it very close so..

PS3 doesn't have 7 graphics cards. It does have 7 ( or some number ) of SPU's on the cell chip. It was originally thought that all the graphics would be done using the SPU's, but then Sony wisened up and talked with Nvidia.

That's probably where he got the idea of 7 graphics cards.

You are all wrong. The ps3 has seven GPU's linked together with gold plated diapers.

Sounds like typical misinformed console-gamer spew. He probably thought the Xbox sucked because it was only 32-bit. :D

maybe he meant to say 7 series graphics card? which is more appropriate.

I've decided I won't tell him the truth and let him make the mistake of buying a PS3. Thats if Sony is able to mass produce to the world considering they seem to have issues with available parts and resources.

Just explain to your friend that you have confirmed that the PS3 does not have 7 video cards, rather a processor with 7 SPEs and a single video card by Nvidia. Tell him he probably misunderstood what he read and if he insists just let him be. Most likely he's not a technical person and mixed up what he read and doesn't remember too well. :)

So my friend was just over and showed him this thread and he still does not believe me. Apparently one of his other friends who builds computer told him that it is possible, yeah what ever but not for the PS3. So indeed the internet is right as stated earlier
