The SONY PlayStation 4, or commonly known as the PS 4, is a video gaming console that was developed by Sony and follows a series of PlayStation consoles. It is used for playing games as well as for social media interaction as well. Its previous version was the PlayStation 3 and this is the newer and the upgraded version.
The graphics card or the video card that is equivalent to the PlayStation 4 which can be used to recreate on the PC can be the Radeon RX 480 to give the similar effects of the PlayStation 4 on a PC since it has a similar teraflop count as the PlayStation 4 and only uses 4GB memory. Others have also used modified HD 7870 video card in order to build a version of the PlayStation equivalent. If you can afford the slightly more expensive GTX 760, that would ideally be a Playstation 4 GPU equivalent. I wrote about it as my first post on JimiIsHappy.com.
Nowadays people are moving from consoles to playing on their personal computers. Thus, developing their own console equivalent on the PCs makes it easy for the gamers to build their own gaming system on their PC. This is more powerful, faster, and more efficient than the consoles.
PC games were the beginning of ‘gaming’, as any gamer can tell you. A gamer who takes his/ her game seriously, has surely tried the PC gaming, if they haven’t actually started as PC gamers.
However, with the modernized, ever revolving techniques in gaming, the PC has started to become somewhat superfluous in the gaming world. Of course, the PC is starting to become obsolete as laptops and tablets hand held devices are becoming the trend for gamers.
While this is true for individual games, there still exists that fraction of gaming society that prefers a fair game on the screen of a PC. The PC games are large in variety, low in cost and so easily affordable. The control of the mouse and keyboard also offers a unique experience to gaming.
Add to this the feeling of nostalgia, and even the most enthusiastic gamers would put PC games on the same level as the current generation consoles.
The PCs which are equivalent to the current generation consoles are elaborated below. When looking for a gaming PC that provides the same power as the Xbox One or Playstation 4, make sure to do your research. I’ve outlined one such strategy in this post.
