sourceCurrently, a supposedly geleaktes sheet for the upcoming Playstation 4 makes the rounds through the Internet. Thus, the PS4 will have the following specifications: The hardware should be equipped with an advanced Cell processor, equipped with 10 GB and 10 GB of working memory video. In 2D, the PS4 will reach a resolution of 3840x2160. The 3D representation will come to 1080p. Total could be two custom Nvidia graphics chips provide the video display and provide plenty of power.
Also on backwards compatibility, it is alleged in the information sheet. The aim is older PS discs without problems. Even the Playstation 4 release is called: In the 4th Quarter of 2013 it will be ready. So far, the speculation is not confirmed and not confirmed the alleged specifications. We'll keep on our course, PS4-topic site up to date. About the alleged PS4-sheet reports the website gameranx.com where this alleged list has, however, remains unknown.
If true,then it's very very good.Looks fake though.

Playstation 4-Release possibly leaked - data sheet shows specifications
Currently Playing: GTA 5
Saw it elsewhere, it's fake. Though those are the sort of specs I'd want out of next gen and would get me onboard within the first year, it won't be anywhere near that which is why I'll wait on a slim revision 3 or 4 years in.
10GB of RAM and 10GB of video memory lol that prove its defo fake it doesn't make any sense to even have RAM/VRAM at 10GB it that was the case and that RAM spec was true it better be standard RAM you can buy for PC's today none of that RAMBUS style XDR $#@!
10GB is kind of an odd amount of RAM so in that case it would be custom, not RAM you would buy on your PC, that's ridiculous.
you have to take into consideration that up until 2007 - 2008 RAM was very expensive. right now in 2012, they could actually get 8 to 10+ gigs pretty friggin cheap, in fact you would have to go up to about 18GB of ram to make RAM just as expensive as it was in 2005. o.O so 10GB of RAM right now is not that expensive at all, since its in bulk it's that much cheaper.
put it this way, sony wants 3D gaming, they want high resolution gaming. Even with 4GB they couldn't do it, 8GB is very close to being able to do it, if they had 10GB of RAM in that sucker they would 100% pull it off and it wouldn't even be overkill
if they used a more advanced cell (it would be a bit cheaper) bluray is cheaper now then when it first came out. etc etc
so lets assume they used a more advanced cell processor, for one thing it would be cheaper.
1) stronger cell
2) better GPU
3) 10GB RAM, more likely 12GB
5)3.5" HDD or just a 2.5HDD or maybe a custom HDD from sony
would still be cheaper then what the PS3 cost, in they would probably break even on the first sales and after a year or so start turning a small profit.
When the bluray first came out, that was the money killer on the end of Sony, that was the bottleneck for Sony trying to make a profit. since it's old tech now they could turn a small profit off a better bluray player. after all bluray is on Sony so now it wouldn't matter.
I will call it right now, Sony will have more then 8GB of RAM in the next console (PS4) $450 or $499
some of you have to remember that when DVD first ever came out, a DVD player cost a bit more then $1,000. The fact that blueray started out at $500 for a player is what was causing a loss of money at Sony.

On most architectures, the amount of memory does not need to be a power of 2, or a multiple of 4GB like you're suggesting. Even the Xbox 360 GPU has 10MB of EDRAM. Amounts of memory that are a power of 2 are convenient, though.
As for higher resolutions, that wouldn't be for one single TV guys. it would be for multiple monitors hooked up. What this means is that a resolution of 3840x2160 would be for 2 to 3 monitor hookups.PSN ID: Intense_Peanut
I would assume buying in massive bulk would save them cash in the long run Sony would be stupid to go back to RAMBUS and ask for a new RAM chip from them to put in PS4 just my 2 cents.
yea, they don't actually need 2000mhz. they could still use less, such as 1060 or even as low as 800 if they are doing 16GB.
12GB @ 1333 maybe 1600
16GB @ 1066
The mistake that sony did with the PS3 in the RAM department was there mindset on the speed of RAM Vs the mb/gb per RAM. They put a huge speed boost on the RAM for the PS3 thinking that 3.2Ghz will act like 1GB of RAM or even 512mb split to act like 1GB, which it doesn't. there mindset was completely in the wrong area.
like for example, 8GB of ram running at 1600 wont act like 12GB. the performance in that area is different, even though 1600 will perform better in terms of it's current 8GB of RAM, it's all used in sync with eachother. This is why I believe with more ram they can lower the speed and get away with it.
16GB of DDR3 running at 1066 is more then enough, quite frankly they could pull of games running in 1080p at 60fps even games like BF3 would run smooth.
in terms of the graphical department of a PC vs Console, it's pointless to even compete in the graphics category, there isn't a point. I say there isn't a point because only a handful of people will buy a highend PC that costs over $2300 to even $3000 Vs a person buying a medium range PC for gaming. The performance factor would be at a stand still in terms of RAM if they did a 16GB RAM in a PS4. while there is better RAM, DDR4, etc etc the RAM factor still is good enough for console vs PC in that aspect.
at a certain point a PC starts to become more of a PC enthusiast hobby compared to a proper running gaming PC.

Where's the time machine and which alternate future is this?

I top out 3GB of VRAM at a res of 5760x1080 in Metro 2033 with everything at max settings, plus on top of this 10GB RAM? Things move in powers of 2's not 10's.

Don't truly know anything about specs and such but 10GB dedicated to video/graphics only seems like too much, don't get me wrong that would be brilliant but seems like way too much and that alone would probably make the PS4 cost at least $1000.
Also, why is the resolution so high? I think 1080p is enough.
Even the brief summary looks like it was written by a Sony fanboy.
Okay, I'll admit it. I wrote it.
Next time I submit a story with fake PS4 specs, I'll make sure it's more believable next time.

Just like every rumour, it starts out believable and then there's this one line in the whole article that crumbles the entire credibility you have in your mind about it.
