    Consoles holding hardware back hugely

    Watching the preview video the graphics look amazing. It’s great to see what used to be pre-rendered cut scenes before the game are now actual in game real-time graphics. My question is when do you think we will see actual games looking like this?

    It my belief that we are currently held back massively by the 6 year old hardware on consoles and that games will only begin to look this good a year or 2 after the release of the PS4 and Xbox720.

    I am not sure how much it costs to make a benchmark like this or how long but to make an entire game at the same level of detail would increase this 10 fold I would think. It boils down to the fact that there is little money to be made in PC gaming and so developers make games look as good as they possibly can on the console’s hardware and anything more is a waste.

    I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

    TPU rocks. Period

    It's a great community, very active and friendly and I like to help people out with their tech problems. W1zz & the mods are critical in allowing this community to flourish, with their even-handed moderation. The product reviews are second to none and finally, I love the Thanks button!

    TPU rocks. Period. :rockout:

    I enjoy visiting TPU because it's one of the better sites out there for news items. News on TPU is well laid out and actually has items I'm interested in reading as opposed to a whole slew of useless junk other sites seem to have. Also, the daily list of hardware reviews is helpful so I can keep up with the latest hardware and see how it performs without having to search for them myself.

    I love visiting Techpowerup! because its my community it is the place i get my news on the tech world at large, where i read reviews on up coming hardware i wish to buy. Techpowerup! is also the meeting point of many individuals i would now call friends and whos ideas and feedback makes a difference in my choices on PC hardware and in troubleshooting any issues i may encounter, besides TPU is my internet home the community has made it such and because of that community I will always come to TPU first. That and the fact fellow TPUers seem to put up with me when other forums wont so looks like you guys are stuck with me.

    Why I <3 TPU

    Some of the best compilations of tech-related news and links. I love anything and everything new tech and TPU is my first stop every morning to see what cool new technologies and products appeared since the prior day.

    The product reviews and benchmarks are unparalleled in the industry. I've got RSS feeds on igoogle from 5 major tech sites and tend to read any and all reviews that come up for product categories that I am in the market for (or potentially will be in the future). The thouroughness and the quality of the methodology of TPU reviews cannot be overstated.

    GPUZ! Thank you!

    Finally, the forums here tend to be much more civil (by several orders of magnitude) then other tech sites... to the point that one gets an actual meaningful response to a question or an opinion.

    Thanks!
