    If those don't work check out:this

    Quoted from www.cgno.com



    They also claim: The nVidia-powered graphics are twice as powerful as a GeForce 6800 Ultra.

    So far so good ;-)

    Ha! I told the fanboys! I told them but they would not listen! (not on this board mind you)

    Heh, sorry, this is a moment of triumph for me. The specs are impressive, thing is I've been arguing with someone who keeps saying the PS3 will have a 4.6 GHz Cell with 8 SPE's, and I kept telling him that was the specs for IBM's server version of the Cell. Nyah!!!! I'll have to post this on the other board... where's an evil smily when you need one... :D


    lol, back on topic.

    The NVidia GPU is nice, it sounds JUST like the G70

    Should be shown within the month. Before anyone says it sounds unrealistic, it's a new gen graphics card (like the jump from FX 5900 Ultra to 6800 Ultra, much more performance for the cost). I fully expect it to be that powerful. At least they're not hyping it.

    The Cell processor sounds good.

    512 MB of RAM; good.

    Video chat, internet access, etc...same stuff as the XBox 360.


    Detachable hard drive, six USB ports, and bluetooth. All good...except...
    Who needs...SEVEN...controllers...on one system?

    Ummm, Cell running at 3.2 GHZ??? Last time i heard about Cell in a PS3 it was suppoded to run at 4GHZ (or maybe that was the highest frequency the CELL could reach at that time and had nothing to do with PS3 design?!?)

    Anyway it seems as if all the processors comming out from IBM are definately not meting the previously predicted frequencies or is it just me? XBOX2 was supposed to be 3.5GHZ now its at 3.2... Mac was supposed to be at 3GHZ a year ago and is at 2.7GHZ now...

    Maybe IBM isnt doing it, Apple and Microsoft are...

    AND PS3 I think was supposed to have a CELL @ 3.2 GHz...

    I think thats why it has two HD outputs so you can play on 2 TV's at once.

    I have been looking, but could not find any pictures. Did Sony give any signs of what the thing looks like?

    Either way I am excited. The backward compatability will make this an easy choice when I'm looking into purchasing a next gen console.

    The 4 GHz one was in IBM servers, magazines with writers quick to jump the gun assumed that the IBM server Cell = the PS3 Cell and jumped the gun proclaiming it at 4 GHz and 9 cores.

    Square Enix has just shown off a Final Fantasy VII tech demo for the PlayStation 3, but they did not announce a specific game for it. Yet.

    A representative from Square Enix has taken the stage.

    This is... beautiful. Simply put, I think this is the first time a videogame console has every gotten a stunning, mature design. This knocks Xbox way out of the water. Amazing.

    Much nicer than the XBox 360 design - looks like home theatre equipment and yet effortlessly sleek. And that looks like a slot-loading drive - nice! I hated the clunky side-out on the PS2
    And I think the PS3 design team should win a "Best use of the Spider-man font outside of a movie poster or DVD case" award.

    This is Nintendo vs Sony now for me.

    After seeing this the XBox 360 isn't even on my consideration list anymore.

    As predicted here http://weblog.bbzzdd.com/archives/000834.html :D


    Seriously, these numbers are sweet.

    324 Mb/sec loading times for Blu-ray...
    Thats 40.5 MB per second.

    That means it can fill up the 512 MB of RAM in 12 seconds.
