Last month you may remember Sony’s Conference where they debuted the highly anticipated next gen console, the PS4. Along with announcing new features of the console and a new controller Sony also discussed the specs. While Sony spoke highly and enthusiastically about their specs they were soon shot down by the major video and graphic card producer, Nvidia.

The senior vice president of Nvidia, Tony Tomasi explained that he is not impressed with the next gen console. “Compared to gaming PCs, the PS4 specs are in the neighborhood of a low-end CPU, and a low- to mid-range GPU side.” was what Tony was quoted saying, following up with “If the PS4 ships in December as Sony indicated, it will only offer about half the performance of a GTX680 GPU which launched in March 2012, more than a year and a half ago.”

For years there has been a debate between PC, and console gamers and Nvidia is trying to settle the debate once and for all. With the company not sweating the competition of Sony’s new system, the words coming from the mouth of the Senior VP, should be taken very serious. The PS4 might be using AMDs graphics card in the system, after Nvidia backing out of the deal. Tony also went on to say “I’m sure there was a negotiation that went on and we came to the conclusion that we didn’t want to do the business at the price those guys were willing to pay.”

It will be interesting to see if there is any response to the comments made by Nvidia, or if anything changes. If it does, we will be the first to tell you!
