NVIDIA: Tegra 5 outperforms PS3 and Xbox 360

Posted on Wednesday, April 03 2013 @ 11:26:28 CEST by

Speaking to Bit Tech, Tony Tamasi, Senior Vice President of Content & Technology at NVIDIA, revealed that the next generation of smartphone chips will offer more power than graphics chips found in consoles like the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. For comparison, the current generation of consoles achieves around 200 gigaflops, whereas NVIDIA's new Tegra 4 does around 80 gigaflops, whereas Tegra 3 ran at just 12 gigaflops. Full details at Bit Tech.
“The PS3 and Xbox 360 are barely more powerful than mobile devices... The next click of mobile phones will outperform [them],” said Tamasi, referring to the chip generation that will follow the company's current Tegra 4 model, as seen on the upcoming Nvidia Project Shield portable games console.

While it may seem out of this world that a mobile phone chip may have the GPU processing power of a games console, the PS3 and Xbox 360 are positively archaic when it comes to graphics technology with them both sporting chips capable of around 200GFLOPs, which compares to the 4500GFLOPS (4.5TFLOPS) of Nvidia's latest flagship PC graphics card the GeForce Titan, or indeed the 1800GFLOPS (1.8TFLOPS) of the upcoming PS4.
