New Video Compares Xbox One and PlayStation 4 Graphical Capabilities

Posted on August 1, 2013 AT 05:21am

On paper the PlayStation 4 has 50 percent extra GPU power, but does that translate into a better gaming experience than on Xbox One?

Digital Foundry built PC rigs based on the specifications of both consoles and put them through their paces, using several recently released titles as a benchmark. It turns out that the PlayStation 4 rig had around a 20 percent advantage over the Xbox One rig.

Of course these rigs can only approximate the power of both next generation consoles, so this advantage shouldn’t be taken as a pure fact of life. You can read the lengthy comparison article over on Digital Foundry, and you’ll find a comparison video below.
