The PS4’s Theoretical Graphics Vs. The Xbox One’s Theoretical Graphics

Console fanboys are all waiting with bated breath for the first graphical showdown between the PS4 and Xbox One. Problem is, that’s really not possible at the moment.

So how about the next best thing? Like comparing the visual output of PCs that have the specs that more or less mirror the upcoming machines? Well, it’s better than nothing.

The comparison is courtesy of Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry, which has an affinity for taking long, loving looks at hardware. And their latest report is equally detail intensive, so much so that many will have difficulty making heads or tails.

Though the test this time was particularly tricky. Digital Foundry did its best to find off the shelf components to create their facsimile machines, but even then, some over clocking and other modifications were necessary.

The following shows both machines processing the graphical data. Can you tell the difference?
