Rajat Teneja believes new hardware will end the need to ration engine resources
Electronic Arts ea.com

EA CTO Rajat Teneja has claimed that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One hardware "essentially remove" the need to ration resources for game development.

In a post on Linkedin, Teneja was full of praise for the potential power of the new consoles, claiming that, "these architectures are a generation ahead of the highest end PC on the market.

"Our benchmarks on just the video and audio performance are 8-10 times superior to the current gen," Teneja continued. "The compute capabilities of these platforms and the data transfer speeds we can now bank on, essentially removes any notion of rationing of systems resources for our game engines."

Another key factor is the importance that both Sony and Microsoft have placed on connected data. According to Teneja, EA handles 50TB of telemetry data every day on its network, and the new consoles have committed to the cloud to a degree that will rapidly develop this aspect of gaming.

EA CTO: New consoles a generation ahead of the best PC

Which of course is why rather than a pre release console or anything like that Sony ship out modified PCs to developers.

Of course i would have to sell my kidneys to fund it but you can get a PC right now containing amongst other things 8 core AMD CPU, 2 graphics cards with a total of 6gb memory, 16 gb DDR ram (Not GDDR but thats hardly the end of the world) and 8 TB of hard drive space split over a pair of disks. By the time people are actually playing games on their PS4s the PC spec will have moved on too.

1. Write down the problem.
2. Think very hard.
3. Write down the answer.

Here's an article that expands on your point and highlights how hilariously wrong this EA guy is.

8-10 times superior to the current gen (360/PS3) - so right on par with a 5 year old gaming PC.
