    Auuhhm, 10Tflop in a console next spring? HOKAY!

    I totally would not mind that; I just don't think it either can or will happen. "HBM DDR4" memory also makes me think this whole thing has been written up by someone who don't really understand tech, but do understand enough of it to string together some vague, impressive-sounding claims to hook other people with.

    Now all we need is a fly-by-night rumor website to echo this rumor for a double confirmation... :lol:

    5x-6x Neo would be only 20TF to 25TF.

    LAME.

    I guess those are the same devs/fans who believed that Ms was not going the let them down with at that time the leaked XBO specs, and are still waiting the activation of the second GPU

    I may not believe this report, but I think it's possible to release a 4-5 tf machine that with an upgrade xfire module to give it around 10tf.
    not sold at a loss either.
    only reason for module so soon though would be vr & better res for 4k gaming

    Every sentence reads like fanboy drivel.

    How much does a 10TF GPU cost today, and how much will it be next year?

    That's your answer.

    Vega will easily reach 10TF mark... and will cost IMO lets say ~ $300-350 for substrate, GPU chip and memory. Even if MS wants to use that, the end cost for entire console would be really high.

    4-6x Neo sounds like a mistake. 4-6x PS4 is achivable with Vega.

    BTW, their source is an anonymous blog.

    Well, in defence of this rumour, when first info about PS4k emerged the articles were treated as crazytalk and clickbait.

    I donĀ“t buy this rumour of a 10TF machine either..

    I don't think a new XB is unlikely (it's been discussed before). The idea of a monster console is difficult to believe in given the market. But I wouldn't say impossible either, just implausible. However, we always get 'monster power' rumours when new hardware is suggested, even for Nintendo machines! ;)

    On the other hand, MS likes to solve its problems with money. Ordering a Jaguar+Vega or Zen+Vega to totally overwhelm PS4 visuals is not something that would surprise me from them.

    uh huh. You'll know if Microsoft is up to their old shenanigans if the power brick is the same size as a Nintendo console.

    But.... Do they? What have they done lately that makes you think that they 'threw money' at a problem and successfully fixed it? The One is pretty 'cheap', yet they never 'threw money' at it to stop the total decimation they got from Sony.
    I get the feeling that, in fact, they moved to protect their margins a lot more than they used to.
    But I stand to be corrected by someone who'd more knowledgeable than me.

    I think MS has come to realization that customers don't mind having an external brick.

    PS4 outselling XB1 5:1 in some territories proves otherwise.

    Xbox 360 sold well enough, and it had brick.

    Xbone sold poorly because of other factors [marketing, announced services, pricing, low number of launch countries and slow expansion to Tier2/3 territories, performance difference, indie dev relations, game focus on dudebro/traditionalxbox/USfocused franchises...].
