It's a real pain in the neck, I might just wait 8 months until the new consoles are out, then I'll do all of the rendering, and photo editing that I need to do on the faster console.

In case you missed it, personal computers don't just play games.

It'll be two more generations before the PC overtakes them.

That's not going to make any difference. CPUs have barely moved in terms of single-threaded performance in the past decade and aren't likely to any time soon. Intel's new lineup coming out soon (Comet Lake) is just yet another refresh of Skylake but with ten cores at the top end, so completely irrelevant. Zen 3 may or may not be slightly more, but it's not going to be a cosmic leap in terms of performance. We also already know that the new consoles are using the very same architecture as this chip (Zen 2), with an eight-core configuration. Digital Foundry have hinted that they'll be clocked at just 3.5GHz too. Current PCs will do just fine.

Current PCs may looks ok spec to spec, consoles always perform like PC hardware 3 times more powerful than it.

For example I expect the next gen consoles to do Ray Tracing locked at 60FPS 4K after a couple years, something current PCs wont ever do.

That's because the Devs are developing to one platform that they know the exact spec of. You can highly target code on that scenario, not like the uniqueness of each pc and software combination!!!

There aren't many things in life where you can afford the best for a couple of grand or so, every 3 yrs, but PC's are the exception. I won't have second best, it'll last me 3 years and with 128 GB ram i can run 'Houdini FX/UE4/Unity', and Game just fine. 3D is a Ram and GPU hog yes, but buy once i say.

3X more powerful, sorry but that's complete nonsense IMO. Consoles use lower quality textures and resolution scaling to get decent performance, but yes they do have better optimisation on their side, at least when it comes to previous gen PC GPUs of equivalent specs, however I'm pretty sure consoles don't even get near 50% more performance of similar specced PC hardware, never mind 3x..

Over 1Ghz slower than current chips like 3700x, how does that make the new consoles "more powerful" if they're already weaker than current stuff? And Zen 3 which is rumoured to bring another 15+% single core performance by summer. You also wouldn't buy a 12 core chip for just gaming either.

That's not how it works, they aren't apples to apples. They are optimised to an extreme degree and are specifically designed to run in ways that aren't equivalent. Even now if you play a 4k console game and 4k PC game with nominally the same settings aren't actually the same settings. Sit them side by side and the difference is stark.

Also that is a ridiculous metric and not realistic this CPU as it is, is vastly more powerful than what will be in the new consoles. It's faster, has more cores, dedicated memory and a host of other features that won't be in the APU for the consoles.

That was back in the day tho when a console probably had less going on - there OS now is multi functional, there’s always recording in the background (video share / online chat / friend requests etc ) so I imagine it’s not quite the advantage it once was.

They have thought of that, that's why they have dedicated cores and they are optimised to take up little resource, unlike Windows. Also games are highly optimised to the single spec.

If the 12tflop is true, that’ll be peak theoretical performance. The real world is different, and the new consoles will be limited by thermals and power draw. They’ll be great, can’t wait to pick up my PS5 at launch, but they won’t compare to the highest end pcs, simple science prevents this. Power = heat

4K 60 doesn’t take that nearly as much grunt when the settings are a mix of low/medium/high which is what the consoles will be using in comparison to PC titles, which is fine by the way, medium is usually perfectly acceptable
