VG Leaks has up some juicy PS4 specs given to it by an industry source, specs revealing that Sony’s PlayStation 4 will be ten times more powerful than its current console, PS3 and much more.
Here’s the full quencher:
4 core (2 core pairs) 3.2 GHz AMD x86 (Steamroller)
aggregate, 10x PS3 PPU performance
512 KByte L2 per core pair
64 bit pointers
AMD R10x series GPU @ 800 MHz (Tahiti)
aggregate 10x RSX performance, 1.84 TFlops
18 compute units, focus on fine grained compute & tessellation
2 GByte UMA, pushing for 4 GByte
192 GByte/ sec non-coherent access for e.g. GPU
12 GByte/ sec coherent access for CPU
>50% longer memory latency for CPU/ GPU compared to PC!!!
DXT is lowest bpp texture compression format
50 GByte BD drive
PCAV, between 3.3 and 8x BD, most likely clamped to 6x
automatic background caching to HDD
HDD SKU with at least 380 GByte
video encoder/ decoder
audio processing unit, ~200 concurrent MP3 streams
HW zlib decompressor
Remember this is only a rumor, so drink sparingly. However if all this turns to be true, Sony’s PS4 will be a beast – throw in Gaikai into the mix and the possibilities are endless.
