PlayStation 4’s AMD-manufactured CPU boasts a final clock speed of 2 GHz, according to the chaps at PS4daily.com.
The site reports that development kits for Sony’s powerhouse console have been slightly underperforming at 1.6 GHz. However, according to their source, the final clock speed has been bumped to 2 GHz.
In addition, the same source reports that the CPU and GPU will be produced at 28nm by the AMD co-owned GlobalFoundries Fab 8 in New York City.
Sony unveiled the PS4 at its PlayStation Meeting last Wednesday. In addition to the CPU, the next-generation console also boasts a GPU capable of pumping out 1.84 TFLOPS of processing power – 4.5 times more powerful than that of its predecessor, PS3.
Conspicuous by its absence at the New York-based event however was the PS4 hardware itself, which has prompted much backlash among gamers.
Despite this, we don’t think it was necessary to see the PS4 itself just yet, as we detail in our feature here.

Nice. There is nothing wrong with keeping the clock at 2GHZ with the cpu chip having 8 cores on board. And on top of that, production will start at 28nm, which in turn there won't be a ton of heat coming off of it like the PS3s/360s. That also means the PS4 won't need a massive cooling system to keep it a bay.......I like that. =)

Nice.. but is it a full 8 core chip or how AMD does with there FX line making an 8 core a 4, 6 core a 3 like a hybrid core were it leans on 8 cores but really only 4.Im hoping its a real 8 core chip. This could help AMD in there fx chip division too. Will it have a form of turbo boost like most AMD chips? Say 2ghz than depending on the task jumps to 2.5ghz etc? Since its more computer related design, it could be possable. I know its a Jaguar chip from there notebook division but im still curious.

From what I've read it's a real 8core.
