I was thinking a dual A-10 6800k APU w/ HD8000 series GPU Crossfired together would produce the same, if not superior performance than a next gen PS4 or Xbox.
completely pointless, as a the new consoles are only rocking what appears to be 3d performance around what the currently 7790 offers.Which means any 7850/7870 equiped machine will be faster in the 3d department.
As far as CPU performance is concerned. There useing amd versions of a low power 8 core CPU. Which means any current AMD CPU is most likly going to be faster. And current 8 core CPU's from amd are most definetly going to be faster then the custom APUs in next gen consoles.
