Which is the next-gen true faith (TF)?

    22.9%
  2. The Prophet OsirisBlack - PS5 is around 12 TF

    4.2%
  3. Neither - they are false religions and PS5 is either < 9, between 10&11, or >13 TF

    14.6%
  4. I'm agnostic

    39.6%
  5. I don't believe there even is a "PS5"

    12.5%
  6. Klee the Seer - PS5 is more powerful than XBSX, at 13 TF

    4.2%
  7. Orthodox Kleeism - PS5 is pretty much the same as XBSX at 12 TF

    Your taking that 2%, but that's never clarified as in that number. Between 9 and 10TF is what you will get in heavy workloads.
    If it would be 2%, they wouldnt have needed to go this route.

    You might see top end GPU clock and reduced CPU clock when running BC. Otherwise, we'll have to see how Navi performs in the latest production runs to gauge how much power it sucks at 2.2GHz.

    This lol-dynamic-clocks is always why I was more keen on CU counts being the measurable quantity to use instead of TFs.

    This took way too damn long for all those pretenders to be outed. So how many of them are scrambling with their "things changed"?

    so were there any bets on RDNA 1.9 ?

    I wonder if Xsx can get a ~10% upclock too hmm. Still amazed at the late clock adjustment. That's better than Xb1's 6.6%.

    So, wait, I was right to be skeptical of all the insiders? Did any of them get the "leaks" correct? I mean, someone must have gotten it correct just by throwing darts at a dart board right?

    Also, right to be skeptical of GitHub, while the information there was likely correct "at the time of testing" things can change and/or data is incomplete.

    Regards,
    SB

    You mean the ones claiming a 2GHz GPU was impossible since the almighty gospel was just testing the limits of the silicon and we'd be looking at a 8 TF PS5 in the end?
    Like the one who made a $100 000 bet on specs that ended up false and is probably not paying that amount in the end?

    There's a bunch of those on B3D.

    There's no need to dogpile on people who don't post here and can't defend or explain themselves.
    Firstly because it's in rather poor character to do so (and I thought that practice had been contained to one stinky thread, silly me).
    Secondly, because you don't need to go beyond this forum to find these fake insiders.



    Suggestion: why don't you create a thread dedicated to dogpiling on the people who didn't hit on the specs that you personally find important (which seems like kind of a moving target, but whatever)?
    That way all this bullshit doesn't have to be repeated throughout several threads.

    I remember being dogged on, along with others, for believing in the relevancy of Github. :embarrased:

    If PS5 truly lacks VRS and ML, then some people might consider it RDNA 1.9 indeed.

    That high? Surely VRS and ML amount to more than just 0.1 ...

    Well I even said 10.2 TF since one year or even more (just for marketing purposes)....

    Yes. Sure 9.2 was the initial target but seeing what MS did they decided to upclock as much as possible just to reach that 10.2 number. I assure everyone I don't work for Sony.... ... .

    Amm...that would be you, no? Oberon_Native_results seem pretty indicative that AMD and Sony thought its possible. Gospel clearly said :
    • Oberon codename
    • 256 bit bus 14Gbps (although alot of us speculated on higher clocks for memory - config .ini file specified 1750MHz GDDR6)
    • 36CU @2.0GHz
    • 64ROPs
    So Sony clocked above this, and all these chip revisions now make sense, with AMD's Smart Shifts they were able to push clocks even higher, but full chip was there - in Github.

    In comparison to alot of you guys who were sharing role playing insider posts from pastebin and GAF, and saying how "Cerny is not idiot, he would never go narrow and fast like Github says". Guess what, he went even faster.

    I like the machine, I think its superb in design but ain't no way Github was wrong. You can say X360 diagram that leaked in 2003 was wrong because it had clocks at 3.5GHz instead of 3.2GHz, when it painstakingly described entire design of system.

    I am just shocked that Github proved to be more accurate than 4chan, Reddit, OsirisBlack and Tommy Fisher.

    Intresting part now will be what the sustained clocks are, i assume we will learn more about that later on.

    In that, you are right. This poll picked TFs as the metric. However ,that's somewhat skewed by dynamic clocks.

    The main take home was a leaked spec for an SOC of 36 CUs, and a bunch of would-be insiders making claims of notably faster, and whether people believed the leak was final hardware (regardless what it could be clocked at) or whether the insiders were actual insiders providing real info. The insiders were, AFAICS, by and large, a bunch of fibbers. So the lesson here is don't trust GAF/Era insiders.

    Although if one of the would-be insiders like Osiris did state 10.x TFs and stuff that makes it look legitimate, that could be recorded for future prosperity come PS6 predictions. But the other poll options have OsirisBlack saying 12 TF and Klee saying 12 to 13. None of the prophets said 10 TF, so the 'data' versus 'insiders' argument is completely in the data's favour.
