PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are apparently a generation more powerful than today’s high-end PC rigs, according to EA’s chief technology officer Rajat Teneja.

“Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have adopted electronics and an integrated systems-on-a-chip (soc) architecture that unleashes magnitudes more compute and graphics power than the current generation of consoles,” he wrote on LinkedIn.

“These architectures are a generation ahead of the highest end PC on the market and their unique design of the hardware, the underlying operating system and the live service layer create one of the most compelling platforms to reimagine game mechanics.”

Teneja also believes that both consoles will be around 8-10 times better than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. When reading this you have to remember that in order to survive in the market both Sony and Microsoft had to really ramp things up against PCs, and it appears that they have achieved this. However, both of these consoles are going to be on the market for a long time and I have no doubt that PCs will overtake them way before the end of their lifecycles.
