Sony Computer Entertainment has lifted the veil on the full hardware specifications for its next-generation games console, the PlayStation 4.
Although the hardware giant revealed some key specs during last night’s PlayStation Meeting in New York City, the is the first time we’ve been privy to the full list.
PlayStation 4 is due for a release in holiday 2013, with Killzone: Shadow Fall confirmed as one of the launch games.
Check out the full hardware specifications below.

PS4 is equipped with 8 GB of unified system memory, easing game creation and increasing the richness of content achievable on the platform. GDDR5 is used for this memory, giving the system 176 GB/second of bandwidth and providing a further boost to graphics performance. The end result for gamers is new games with rich, high-fidelity graphics and deeply immersive experiences that shatter expectations.
The Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) has been enhanced in a number of ways, principally to allow for easier use of the GPU for general purpose computing (GPGPU) such as physics simulation. The GPU contains a unified array of 18 compute units, which collectively generate 1.84 Teraflops of processing power that can freely be applied to graphics, simulation tasks, or some mixture of the two.

Does anyone know if the live demo's were running in 1080p?

for a moment I thought they had dropped wifi, but I see it now.
Everything looks great as expected from Sony, and the BD is bluray, right? I hope the PS4 is not too expensive, and I hope they don't drop features like they did with the PS3.

it's not about raw power..
it's about the games that are available that will make or break the system.
think m$ are left with a tough act to follow in the end i think it was smart of sony to boldly go out first!!

Yeah, nothing new. What frequency is the CPU running at? How about the GPU?

Right after the press conference there was some speculation about Sony dropping the BluRay, good to see it's still in there. That's how I convince my wife its worth dropping another 500$ to play games.
Plus I like have a PlayStation as the center of my home theatre system

Nice specs. I like how they set up the cpu/gpu, and that there is enough memory to feed this thing.

is the HDD going to be swappable?

Was expecting to see something about 4K support. Sony and others made such a big push for 4K TVs at CES this year.

I'm much happier with this set of specs. The quality of games that we will see out of this next generation will be miles ahead of what we saw throughout the PS3's lifecycle due to more conventional PC-like parts instead of the CELL and lack of RAM.
I'm really hoping for a couple USB ports on the back of the console for better ease of use for things like charging stations and headset transmitters.

Is the TFLOPS single or double?

Im playing Terraria at the moment and all my AAA titles are sat gathering dust, so much for graphical powerhouses.
