PlayStation 5: Launch is 19/11/20. £360 digital, £450 full fat. Launch games £70?!?!

Pretty sure that feature was mentioned in one of the Wired articles, and I believe there were some patents kicking around.

 

I'd guess it's also one of the things that'll fall under the Create button, essentially acting as a system-level hook for custom time trials or score attacks you can send to Friends.

Please have a decent OS. I read an article saying MS have confirmed the Series X one will largely be the same as what they now. The PS4 one is desperately in need of an update, going back to it while I game in Modern Warfare Is painful, and that’s on a Pro.

Sort of like Stadia’s interactive shareable clips thing but without any game streaming involved. Did Stadia ever ship that or is it on the to-do list?

Great idea.

That’s a ridiculous comparison. It really doesn’t sound (from that engineer’s “clarification”) like it’s missing much of the RDNA 2 feature set at all. Which makes sense seeing as literally everybody else refers to it as an RDNA 2 part.

 

Well of course it's a ridiculous point. That's why I said it was going to take you analogy to breaking point!    :)

@Alex W. What did you come up with that stupid car analogy for?

 

Use dinosaurs instead.

 

If RDNA 1 is a diplodocus and RDNA 2 is a velociraptor, have Sony created a dino hybrid similar to what appears @10 seconds in this video?

That does sound a lot like DLSS.
 

That article says that the UE5 demo used DLSS - that’s not the case is it? I can’t see confirmation of that anywhere. It was running at something like 1440p but I don’t think it then had DLSS applied. If Epic already have a version of DLSS running on the next gen consoles that’d be a big deal.

They would be crazy not to be doing something along those lines. Microsoft gave a presentation a couple of years back on the subject as well so you can be sure they are both cooking something up. I wonder how well it will work on the Console GPU's though given that Nvidia's Turing chips have pretty ludicrous amounts of AI compute power from the Tensor cores.

For those wondering what DLSS is - basically cybernet being fed enough data and guessing trillions of times over on how to fill missing data in a scene until it gets it right.

 

It is one of the coolest tech that Nvidia has developed - demo from the CEO himself

That's really impressive. :hat:

 

Are the trained neural networks for this sort of technique shipped on the chips? Software versioned? Or cloud-based? (e.g. are you hardware bound or could you get ever improving results as they crunch more images to learn from and update it). Also does this effect the framerate at all?

Software. A few %; but Sony/Microsoft's kit is a bit weaker. It's worth reading a few Digital Foundry things on the subject.

On an RTX 2080 Ti at 4K, DLSS completes in around 1.5ms - meaning it's faster than checkerboarding on PS4 Pro. However, the hardware comparison is obviously lopsided. The weakest capable GPU is the RTX 2060 (still significantly more powerful than the Pro) and DLSS has an overhead in excess of 2.5ms on this card. That's heavy, especially if you're targeting 60fps where the entire frame rendering budget is just 16.7ms.

 

The trade off being not having to render at 4k for a start. But noting that these new GPUs aren't RTX 2060 equivalents:

 



There's an important point of differentiation between Nvidia's hardware and AMD's, however. The green team is deeply invested in AI acceleration across its entire business and it's investing significantly in die-space on the processor for dedicated AI tasks. AMD has not shared its plans for machine learning support with RDNA 2, and there is some confusion about its implementation in the next-gen consoles. Microsoft has confirmed support for accelerated INT4/INT8 processing for Xbox Series X (for the record, DLSS uses INT8) but Sony has not confirmed ML support for PlayStation 5 nor a clutch of other RDNA 2 features that are present for the next generation Xbox and in PC via DirectX 12 Ultimate support on upcoming AMD products.

Broadly speaking then, the Xbox Series X GPU has around 50 per cent of the RTX 2060's machine learning processing power. A notional DLSS port would see AI upscaling take 5ms to complete, rather than a 2060's circa 2.5ms. That's heavy, but still nowhere near as expensive as generating a full 4K image - and that's assuming that Microsoft isn't working on its own machine learning upscaling solution better suited to console development (spoilers: it is - or at least it was a few years back). In the meantime though, DLSS is the most exciting tech of its type - we're sure to see the technology evolve and for Nvidia to leverage a key hardware/software advantage. The only barrier I can see is its status as a proprietary technology requiring bespoke integration. DLSS only works as long as developers add it to their games, after all.

Nvidia supply updated neural networks via driver updates.

Nice, thanks for the info. I'll have a further read.

 

Having not dabbled in PC builds for about 15 years I've only had a passing look into underlying tech of late. The last gaming machine I built was sporting a shiny new GeForce4 4200 Ti  :D

 

EDIT: The video on the Digital Foundry link above is excellent, cheers.

The person who suggested the August 6th State of Play has tweeted this possible leak (via 4Chan) of the possible running order including a Silent Hill reveal...

 

 

Also possible GoW2 mention amongst other things, further bits on games we know about, something about hardware and backwards compatibility and PS Now in their running order too. Nothing on VR mentioned again.

 

Caveat: Could well be utter nonsense!

Without wanting to sound like a dick, what's the reason why we should pay attention to that? Some guy on  - is that 4chan? - somehow has the whole running order for a talk we don't know exists yet. Sounds legit.

They got a plausible mixture of a few exciting things and utter tedium in the first screenshot so at least they’re learning to imitate the style of the real conferences in these things.

Do you think it's likely that PS4 steering wheels will be compatible?

 

I know PS3 ones were not on PS4 and Sony are generally dipshits in letting people use existing accessories.

No idea. I have the same question on HOTAS support too.

The latest AC7 flight stick has a toggle switch for PS3 or PS4 use. I can just imagine that means it won’t work at all on PS5. It identifies in the controller settings as a DS3 or 4 though, not as a flight stick. Fingers crossed, but I’m not hopeful.

SMT: Nocturne is getting both a PS4 and Switch release next year. That's been known for a couple of weeks now.
