EA executive vice president and chief technical officer Rajat Teneja has said that the architectures of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are "a generation ahead of the highest end PC on the market."

Writing in a post on social media service LinkedIn, the former Microsoft employee said the next-gen hardware of both Sony and Microsoft is "a significant inflection point in the history of our industry" that will be "as profound as the introduction of smartphones or Facebook to the market."

"Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have adopted electronics and an integrated systems-on-a -chip (soc) architecture that unleashes magnitudes more compute and graphics power than the current generation of consoles," says Teneja. "These architectures are a generation ahead of the highest end PC on the market and their unique design of the hardware, the underlying operating system and the live service layer create one of the most compelling platforms to reimagine game mechanics."

The importance of the cloud will also tie into the future of games, according to Teneja. "The power of connected data is going to be an integral part of the gaming experience," he said. "We see 2.5bn monthly game sessions and 50 [terabytes] of daily telemetry data on our network alone. The Xbox Live network required 500 servers when it launched a decade ago and as was mentioned yesterday, they are now provisioning 300,000 servers to handle Xbox data in the cloud. That growth is staggering, but it also means we’ll really start to see more examples of true cross-device play."

"You don’t have to be an engineer or even a gamer like me to appreciate the power of these new devices," he concluded.

EA this week announced that its new, next-gen Ignite engine will power its upcoming sports titles. DICE's Frostbite engine will also play a key part in EA's next-gen development.

The Technology Behind Xbox One
As a long-time Microsoft employee and now the CTO of EA, I found yesterday’s unveiling of the new Xbox One exciting on a few different levels. Following on the footsteps of Sony’s announcement of the new PlayStation 4, these new technologies finally raise the curtain on the next generation of interactive entertainment. This is a significant inflection point in the history of our industry. One that is as profound as the introduction of smartphones or Facebook to the market. My colleagues Frank Gibeau and Peter Moore shared their thoughts on what this means for the industry as a whole yesterday, but I’d like to take a deeper dive into the technical implications of these new platforms for our games and game engines.

It all begins with the raw horsepower of the platform which catalyzes the imagination and will power the next wave of innovation in entertainment. Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have adopted electronics and an integrated systems-on-a -chip (soc) architecture that unleashes magnitudes more compute and graphics power than the current generation of consoles. These architectures are a generation ahead of the highest end PC on the market and their unique design of the hardware, the underlying operating system and the live service layer create one of the most compelling platforms to reimagine game mechanics. Our benchmarks on just the video and audio performance are 8-10 times superior to the current gen. 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. Yesterday, we introduced the new EA SPORTS IGNITE engine. We also announced the next generation of our Frostbite engine which powers many of our titles including Battlefield and Need For Speed. Both these engines have been tailored to take full advantage of the new capabilities of the Xbox One and PS4. For a first-person shooter game like Battlefield 4, this means even more detailed gameplay, behavior and awareness for characters and more detailed appearance down to the lighting and clothing on the soldiers. EA SPORTS gamers will experience true motion with pivoting, side stepping, step based locomotion and bio mechanics that account for mass, center of gravity and momentum; human intelligence that simulate instincts, awareness and unpredictability that’s more like real-life sport.

Videogames are about to become a medium like you’ve never seen. For example, in the real world, when an athlete takes the field or court during a playoff game and the crowd is going wild, they feed off of that energy and it impacts how they perform. Take the Warriors’ “Roaracle Arena,” for example – the players have said that the crowd energy directly impacted how they performed in the playoffs. CenturyLink Field where the Seattle Seahawks play is often referred to as the 12th man for the same reason. With our next gen game engines, the crowd energy, weather and player behavior will all impact how your gameplay unfolds.The technology powering these games takes realism to a whole new level.

These next-gen platforms create dynamic, living worlds. Your game could change overnight depending on actions by other gamers around the globe. Your player stats and information can be updated in real time with real-world player stats and injury reports. These consoles are also inherently more social – something that didn’t matter much when the last consoles came out eight years ago. You’re reading this on a social network right now; you’re much more likely to want to connect with your friends and share stats and achievements than ever before. I previously wrote about how social connectivity is a secular force that is changing the industry – and now we’re really going to see that take off.

Last but not the least, the power of connected data is going to be an integral part of the gaming experience – I’ve written before about how data-heavy games can be. We see 2.5B monthly game sessions and 50 TB of daily telemetry data on our network alone. The Xbox Live network required 500 servers when it launched a decade ago and as was mentioned yesterday, they are now provisioning 300,000 servers to handle Xbox data in the cloud. That growth is staggering, but it also means we’ll really start to see more examples of true cross-device play. Sony showed off the ability through their cloud gaming functionality to allow gamers to play high-end console titles on the handheld Vita product. The architecture of both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 present more opportunities to take your game from TV to smartphone to PC, with seamless ubiquity and experience gaming at any time, in any way on any device.

You don’t have to be an engineer or even a gamer like me to appreciate the power of these new devices. The technological power of the device sitting under your TV has never presented more opportunity, and is poised to change entertainment as we know it.

Congratulations to my former colleagues at Microsoft for unveiling a device with exceptional industrial design and taking videogame technology into a new era. And congratulations to our partners at Sony who have showcased the future of open architecture and cloud gaming.

It’s an exciting time to be in this space at this moment in history.

If by "top spec PCs" he means cheap laptops, then I agree.

EA exec is full of sh*t should be the topic name. My PC blows the Xbox One and PS4 out of the water. These two systems are PCs in a gaming case. The only thing the PS4 has over my gaming rig is the 8GB of GDDR5 RAM. Considering my video card is much more powerful then the one in the PS4, it is a moot point anyway.

Seeing as how more games will be available to the PC this generation, we can all put this false claim to the test. Dedicated OS or not, a top of the line video card will outperform both systems. No amount of optimization is going to surpass a much better graphics card.

The fact that more games are coming to the PC because both Sony and MS have given up on non x86 architecture gaming systems proves that PC has already won.

I built a new gaming rig last year that is more powerful than the PS4 now. Current high end gaming rigs blow the PS4 out of the water.

It's common sense.

If I spend $800-$1200 on a gaming rig I know damn well Im getting a better product than the one thats half that price.

fu*kin GPUs alone at the high end cost the same as an entire console.

Dude in this article sounds oblivious.. But u know he's not. And thats what console gamers should find really offensive.. The fact he can make such ridiculous claims in an attempt to ensure your business on consoles and think your ignorant enough to believe him.

A grand smh.


And I own everything and plan to continue to.. So really no bias.

I5 3570k overclocked to 4.5ghz (Only for running Dolphin, not needed for gaming)
Gigabyte 670 GTX overclocked by 126mhz GPU/550mhz RAM (Beats the stock 680 in all benchmarks)
Corsair Force 3 120GB SSD (OS and some games)
Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" (Rest of my games)
8GB of OCZ DDR3 RAM (Cannot remember the specific brand) but it is running at 1867mhz 9/10/9/27
AsRock Z77 Extreme6 motherboard

With my setup, there is not one game I own that I cannot run maxed out. This setup will last me a while. In another year I may get another 670 and run them in SLI. I thought about getting the 680 originally, but the 670 is so good at overclocking that I can get just about the same performance as the 680 for a much cheaper price. Even though my rig beats the 680 in benchmarks, I am sure that in actual games the 680 would come out a little bit ahead. I mostly game on a 64inch 1080p plasma though so I have more than enough performance for my resolution.
