    By my old school console calculations PS4 should be a 512-bit console lol

    or is it 1024-bit since this generation lasted so long?

    looks pricey


    Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating

    Ahh the bit wars. Fun times

    hmm. If we assume PS2 was 128-bit, that makes PS3 256-bit, and PS4 512-bit! Wooooaahhh!!!!

    I think where some people in these types of threads go wrong, is when they think that corporate entities are on the same playing fields as the consumers. You have to understand that corporate entities such as MS, Sony, etc have access or can gain access to technologies that the consumer won't see for years. So when you guys look at these specs and say well, how can they have this and that and its not even out yet? Stop and think about what you are saying.

    "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"

    I dont really understand the specs and I dont know if its really worth going too much into it. Speculation is good but I want to see official specs sometime soon. I like my PS3 but Ive had it since 2006, Im so ready for PS4.

    E3 next year is going to be extremely interesting especially the weeks leading up to it!

    You do know that APUs support Dual Graphics right? AMD Richland + 1.84 Tflops? Richland itself is aiming for 1.0+ Tflops I am thinking 1.1-1.3 Tflops. It will be using AMD 8000 series IGP. So we could see somewhere between 2.84-3.4 Tflops.

    One good thing to note is that every product used in a console gets a new version on the market right after console launch at its full scale so this could be where this APU comes from. It has TSV, and HSA tech in it. Which was a key point of Sony engineer talk awhile ago. Also its at 28nm.

    see the the responses from the people in the know when I 1st posted the specs on NeoGaf they all said the same thing these are the right target specs from the dev-kits at the end of last year but the part about Radeon HD 7970 is just a misunderstanding because of the translation & it's just saying that the chip is from the same family that's in the 7970.

    Well it could be AMD 7970M From the Pitcarin brand. It runs at 2.1 Tflops. Scaling it back just a little wouldn't be impossible and TDP is under 100.

    If you think about it, an APU with quad 3.2Ghz cores AND a 1843Gflops GPU (more than a friggin gtx 580) seems like impossible to cool.
    Not if 1.84 Tflops was running under 100 TDP. Like say it was based on AMD Pitcarin 7970M Which is 2.1 Tflops. It wouldn't be hard to scale that back to 1.84 Tflops. You know its possible they could squeeze a little more performance out of it before they launch or say scale it back for first kits and test how far it can go so later kits we could see 2.1 Tflops from it. TDP alone without them scaling back is 75. They probably want something around 50-65 TDP. Although I believe 75 TDP is possible.

    What this all probably amounts to is better graphics for PS4 and nextbox games that look very close and comparable, while a PC will probably give you the best visual experiance. Status quo unchanged and obvious.

    I doubt it, they will probably announce the superslim at TGS to wrap up this gen and continue selling once the PS4 is released.

    So the PS4 should be unveiled at E3 alongside UC4, GT6, MGS5, Final Fantasy 2020 and huge little planet!!!


    Next Gen top picks:
    PS4: Infamous SS, DriveClub
    One: Project spark, Forza 5
    Multi: Watchdogs, The crew, FFXV, KHIII
