Inside of PS4 Pro. Interesting. So if PS4 can do half float computation then it can get 8.4 TFLOPS out of it? But half-float computation? How would you even be able to get something out of that?
You can get speed out of it while everything else will suffer. You cant do graphic intense operations at 16bit the precision is just not there. Also if you do split it at 16bit where does that leave the original ps4 doesn't that kinda break backwards compatibility or are game devs going to start saying well if this is a ps4 pro there can be a flash of light at this point but original ps4 gets none. Sounds like a pointless stat given to try to take away from the xbox scorpion supposedly having more power.
The person who said it was Mike Carray (or that guy who designed the PS4 chip). He rarely spews pointless.
I read on it a bit more. It's AMDs Polaris feature, which has more support for those type of calculations. Since PS4 Pro has two chips (basically a crossfire) it can perform two 16-bit operations at the same time thereby giving at the end a single 32 bit result in half the time. Or something along that line.
Though if PS4 has that feature, so will the xbox scorpio since both have their made by amd. If sony and xbox do make use of some clever stuff to get that output indeed, that would be awesome.
If games on PSVR are good. I'll buy one. If some PSVR games requires PS4 Pro. Then I'll think about it.
I tried the PSVR at a demo at my place. The experience is nice, but left wanting. They only had that underwater demo with the shark attacking you. Even though I watched that demo on youtube a million times, it was still quite real when I put it on.
The image was a bit blurry. I wasn't able to make out the pixels (probably since there was constant movement), but it was still a bit blurry. Also the fact that you can't actually feel the vibrations and all is a bit weird.
A long time ago, I had been into a virtual roller coaster
. The experience on that was way better because of all the moment. Since I had already experienced that I was a just bit disappointed. I doubt you can get that level even on HTC Vive, but I don't know since I haven't tried it. As for games no idea. I wanted to try Eve Valkyrie, but they didn't have the demo for that.
