DICEGM states more RAM is always better.
Our friends at NeoGAF today brought part of an interview with Karl Magnus Troedsson, the Vice president and general manager of DICE to our attention.
During this interview, Mr. Troedsson was asked, “People have made a lot about the difference between the PlayStation 4 having 8GB of GDDR5 RAM versus the 5GB of DDR3 RAM allotted toward the gaming partition on the Xbox One. Do you see that as an advantage for the PlayStation 4, or is that overblown?”
Mr. Troedsson replied that, “More memory or more CPU or GPU power – whatever kind of power we get out of a machine – more is always better, especially for the kind of games we build.”
He goes on to add, “We have a long heritage of PC, and PC is a platform that has been scaled very well over the years. Naturally we’re very excited now seeing consoles that actually close in on what the PCs of today can do – even though it won’t take long before the PCs can do even more.”
WIll consoles ever catch up to PCs in terms of sheer power? And do you think the PlayStation 4 has a great enough advantage over the Xbox One?
