    Desktop clock speeds are somewhat irrelevant when it comes to consoles anyway. They're aiming for notebook level of dissipation.

    What a rather boring weekend ... Nothing new or exciting in the rumor mill. There isn't even new pics of DevKits to look at. And still people are talking about a non-existent console built around a SOC codenamed Lockhart.

    Both sides have solid information well contained.

    Very surprised they didn't mention Reddit as it's a natural fit for forum replacement. I think MS took down their horrible forum software a few years ago after trying out an even worse software product that seemed written by college students as a coursework assignment.

    UPDATE: Community Forums Closure

    Beginning 27 February, the PlayStation.com forums will no longer be available. We invite you to continue the conversation via PlayStation.Blog, Twitter, and Instagram. For product support, please visit the support site, Playstation.com/help/

    WAIT.

    WHAT.

    7nm isn’t *actually* 7nm?

    I feel cheated. I’m cancelling all orders of every electronic thing I’ve not ordered ever.

    I’m shook.

    Here they are, the ultimate double confirmed final specs of the consoles that were sent through an anonymous e-mail to some guy who then posted it to reddit:

    Well at least the poster is consistent with his/her BS.

    Logic, pah!

    We know an expensive PlayStation = two jobs

    So, Ps > 399 then jobs = 2

    Then, jobs =2 then Market ++

    There for

    Flat market ! = low price

    Some clever C level maths means you can perfectly calculate the value of Ps

    Ps = 599

    And an improving market

    Solving economics the gamer way

    Correct.
    I should have used the term "reconstruction", so it's ID Buffer, Checkerboard and to a certain point rapid packed math that is used on those while taking a lower performance hit.

    I'm confused. Last post of yours was about 5nm and 3nm availability. I responded with a link to an article explaining the complexities, challenging your theory that a 2021 launch on 5nm is a sound business strategy. Your next post is then about PS closing down their forums, which AFAICS has nothing to do with next-gen at all. It's not even a rumour but news. It's not even baseless as it comes from Sony officially. So in the middle of a discussion on your hardware theories, you post in the Baseless Next Gen Rumours thread some Fact-Based Current-Gen News. :???:

    Please explain your train of thought! ;)

    Feels pretty weird we are almost at March and still no detailed leak from Sony/MS official documentation has leaked.

    In my mind, I think that they were pretty ready for a reveal.

    And I know some people on here mentioned it, while some joked about it, but seeing MWC 2020 actually cancelled completely because of the coronavirus, now I do feel that all big reveals have been out on hold.

    MWC might be unrelated to consoles, being the E3 of mobile, but it’s clear now that things are not great in the world of big reveals, at the moment.

    Yeah, where are all these insiders and why aren't they doing their part to leak official data? Damn slackers.

    And the Inquisitors just can't help themselves.
    I think @Shifty Geezer was pretty clear about dogpiling on rumor sources in this thread.


    BTW, for all I know, he could be about as full of it as you.
    But one big difference is he's been vetted by the forum's mod team, and at least he's putting his account on the line with a clear ban if his info doesn't come through.
    Whereas all you've been doing is betting virtual moneys for how sure you are of the Github Gospel with no real repercussions if your sources are wrong.
