Unnamed development sources say the PlayStation 4 is 50 percent faster than the Xbox One, Edge Online reports.
According to Edge’s sources, which describe between the two consoles as “significant” and “obvious,” both memory reads and Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU) on PS4 is 50 percent faster than Xbox One.
“The poor [graphics] drivers have made it difficult to push either of them, and the developers aren’t familiar with the hardware yet,” says one of Edge’s sources.
“Xbox One is weaker, and it’s a paint o use its ESRAM,” says another source.
The example provided to Edge by its development sources is how a multiplatform title will run at 1920×1080 at 30fps on the PS4, but on Xbox One the resolution would be 1600×900 running at only 20-some frames per second.
I suppose we’ll find out the veracity of these claims when the PlayStation 4 launches November 15 in North America and the Xbox One launches November 22.
