I have a new theory

I”m not sure that guy can be killed.
Went to Jongleurs last night (a comedy club here in notts, may be a chain, not sure.)
The announcer and the first two acts were kinda funny, got a couple of chuckles out of me, even though it was mostly dick jokes. The last act however, a five man improv group called “The Noise Next Door”..
Oh man, I was crying by the end of it. Bespoke songs, some incredible (and not so incredible) accents, crowd participation, off the cuff comedy that had my cheeks aching by the time they were done.
The latest rumors surrounding the Xbox One are that the demos that Microsoft allowed people to play on at E3 were not running on an Xbox One, but instead running on high-end PCs with Titan graphics cards.
If this is the case, they were running the games on a system that is around 3x faster than the Xbox One.
These rumors are backed up by images that clearly show a high-end desktop under the displays of the Xbox One stands at E3.
May well be the case, playing through an SDK like the durango devkits that were leaked a while back.
Don’t take it as misleading or disproportionate to the end performance of an Xbox one however. Emulation of a console takes much, much higher specs than playing on bespoke hardware. I have an OC’d core i5 machine @4.5Ghz with 8GB ram and an ATI Radeon HD 7870 (Which incidentally is a comparable spec to the new consoles) and certain games struggle to maintain a decent fps on my playstation 2 emulator, nevermind current gen.
Also, the “3x performance” thing is probably in reference to its teraflop count, which is just a small part of benchmarking performance. to quote ExtremeTech:
“Using teraflops as a stand-in for real-world performance, though, to quote our hardware analyst Joel Hruska, is like “giving the fuel efficiency of a car going downhill with an 80 mph tailwind on helium-inflated tires.” What it ultimately comes down to is how efficiently developers use the hardware.”
It is interesting to see though, and definitely good to realise that consoles aren’t some esoteric magicbox, they’re basically really, really specialised pc’s.
You didn’t think they’d risk having Xbox ones on the show floor to potentially steal before their release did you?
Three of my favourite comedians, seeing a pattern here?
So tired I’m scrolling the lazy tag just to see if there’s anything rebloggable to accurately depict my tiredness.
