But use the rest of my question also... I know two apu's is good...but if something has slow ram (if rumors are true) wouldnt tgat be counterproductive? Like just because you have two feet doesnt mean you can run...
If the Xbox 720 has 8GB of RAM as it's been rumored, it won't have "slow" RAM issues. There isn't a game today that you can't run on max with 8GB of RAM.

The rumor the entire time was 2 apus having 4gbs of ram a.ssigned to each one. That is different than 1 apu having 8 gbs of ram if rumor is true.

I don't know why he thought that it would be slow, especially since that's the standard used in most computers today.

I said SLOWER then that PS 4 GDDR5 ram... I didn't say it was slow I said slower ram...learn to comprehend fellas...

and I was on my phone so it was hard to really explain my question...so now that i'm on the PC ...what i'm asking is

With 8gb of ram running two APU's...it would be 4gb each most likely right? So now out of that 4gb some of that has to go to basic OS functions and everything else...so it's really like the nextbox will have 6gb (maybe less) running the two APU's 6 is less than 8...

so that's what i'm asking is it smart to have two APU's with 8Gb of the slower DDR 3 ram (Compared to the GDDR5 ram) since it would really be 6 gb running two APU's and not up the ram to say 10 or 12 gb?

So we lying now?

You said right there it has "slow RAM issues" and made no mention of GDDR5. I don't know where you get we have comprehension issues from when you're backtracking on your word.

Now, let's say that 2GB of the shared 8Gb of RAM is dedicated to the OS. That leaves 6GB of RAM for gaming. You can run most PC games on max with just 4GB of RAM. 6GB of RAM would be more than enough. You don't need more RAM because you added an extra processor.

Only a fool would question having 2 APUs as being a bad thing. Regardless of if it "only" uses 6GB of RAM. You're just coming off as a hater now.

In the 2nd post, I said if this were true feelings would be hurt. Looks like this rumor is hurting feelings even if it's false.

as far as the "slow ram": part is concerned In my ORIGINAL post before the one you quoted I compared it to the GDDR5 of the PS 4 ...no backtracking on my part...you either missed or misread my original post asking the same question...that's all

and how am I hating? I asked a question because I don't know how APU's work with ram and all that... That's why you ask questions so you can understand and get clarification on something right?

Just because you have your MS fanboy pants on today doesn't mean i'm hating on anything... I was asking a legit question as to how the Two APU thing would work and if splitting the ram would matter or not...

In your original post you said" slower DDR3 RAM." DDR3 RAM is not slow. So when you constantly keep trying to say it will have "slow RAM issues" because it's not as fast as GDDR5 RAM, you come off as a hater.

I've told you 3 times now, adding an extra APU is good thing. Keep trying to find a flaw in that though, and stay out of those feelings.

I've answered your question 3 times dummy. It seems like it's you that has the comprehension problem.

This guy calls someone else an idiot but can't understand that a 2 APU + 6GB RAM setup is a good thing.

@ the last few posts

DDR3 ram is what pretty much every gaming PC is running with right now.. having 8GBs of it is WAY more than enough to handle BF3 on ultra settings, in a 64 player server (depending on GPU of course, let's a.ssume GTX560 and AMD equivalent and above would suffice)

The DDR5 ram isn't really that big of an issue.. it's just the newer ram that performs faster and cooler, etc.

I suspect one of the main reasons for the PS4 to have DDR5 ram is to help compensate for having a cheaper GPU.. which they need to have in order to keep the cost down.. I'd say that's all it boils down to.

DDR5 Ram doesn't exist.

I was wondering the same thing actually. Doesn't the new Kinect have a processor in it though?

DDR3 isn't slow but it is slower than GDDR5. Hence the reason why DIO was asking if the NextBox will have any problems with the slower ram. Valid question.

Pretty much all PC's nowadays use DDR3 and it's more than enough to make these crazy good looking games on the PC, with 1 CPU 1 GPU. With 2 APU's you'll now have 2 CPU's and 2 GPU's (aka SLI or Crossfire) working together which will make your system run and be able to do much more. That DDR3 RAM isn't going to hurt anything. Who knows what speed MS will even have that RAM running at either. To sum it up, everything will be a o k on the NextBox.

THANK YOU for answering my question like I was asking... that's great news then, hopefully this rumor comes true and the NextBox is indeed a beast... just hope the always online rumor is fake... These next two months are going to be EPIC in gaming with all the announcements
regarding Next Gen

Oh my bad.. I forgot the "G"

That makes sense, especially since the 360 doesn't have 2 APUs now and still uses Kinect.
