People like software and people like hardware; some like style some like ability. Take the Xbox 360 vs. PS3, the Xbox 360 may have better looking games but the PS3’s Cell Processor is a lot stronger than the Xbox 360’s hardware.
However, when you get down to it, it comes down to a matter of choice and preference. According to the website PC-Tablet, they ran a test comparing the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PS4’s hardware. Their complete overview analysis showed the PS4 had better configuration and is overall a faster system with better specs, at least according to the paper of information we’ve all been provided.
Firstly the GPU comparison, shows the PS4 GPU is much more powerful than its competitor. Sony PS4’s GPU has the ability to perform 1.84 TeraFLOPS on contrary to this XBOX one has the ability of 1.23 TeraFLOPS only, which is 30% less powerful than PS4.
According to PC-Tablet, “Both are inspired by 1.6 GHz AMD Jaguar accelerated processing unit, 64 bit processor internal and 8GB RAM. But some difference makes PS4 smarter than XBOX one. In Sony PS4, RAM is faster as it uses 8 GB GDDR5 and XBOX built with 8 GB DDR3 RAM. This increases the bandwidth of PS4 and this extra bandwidth increases the performance up to 90% in PS4. Although Microsoft tried to increase its bandwidth by adding 32 GB of SRAM but that’s not proved to be much beneficial.”
So, it looks like the RAM is PS4’s key to hardware domination right now. I forgot to mention, rumors show that the Kinect for the Xbox One will take 3GB of that 8GB of RAM, so that may also hinder Xbox’s performance.
