Speed Comparison: [ Xbox 360 / Playstation 3 / Revolution ]

Speed is the utmost importance when it comes to gaming. The speed makes or breaks the console. Who wants to play a laggy game? Here are the specs of the 3 new consoles coming to market in the near future. Note: Some of these statistics are rumored / not necessarily true / inexistent at this point in time; however, I will update this table as soon as new data becomes available.

  • For the 360 the GPU doubles as northbridge for the system. I've read that GPU-CPU connection runs at 10.8GB/sec. The RAM is rated at 700MHz and 1.4Gbps/pin (22GB/sec to the GPU). The MS spec sheet thats been posted around claims the FSB can move 21.6 GB/s (10.8 each direction). Without knowing more about the CPU-GPU bridge I'm unsure of way to calculate the actual clockspeed of the interface.
