Developers suggest performance differences are “significant and obvious”

PS4 ‘noticeably faster’ than Xbox One, sources claim Console war will ‘reinvigorate’ flagging industry, says Sony boss Sony preparing against PS4 post-launch sell-out Japan PS4 to launch in 2014

Sony’s PlayStation 4 is significantly faster than the Xbox One, according to development sources speaking to Edge.

Despite Microsoft’s effort to close the gap as much as possible before release, Edge claims that memory reads on PS4 “are 40-50 per cent quicker than Xbox One”, and that the graphics chip’s ALU (Arithmetic Logic Unit) is around 50 per cent faster by comparison.

Microsoft are going to need more than Fable legends to stay in the race, think their earlier entry into the marketplace will pay off… personally I have heaps of 3rd gen titles to get through, and I’m happy to wait.

Also I can’t see how either console is future proof, as my 12month old PC beats both on paper specifications.
Guess it’s different with dedicated software.
