    World Exclusive: PS4 in deep (first specs)

    In exclusive we have the detailed first specs (not final) for PS4, most likely first alpha kits sent to developers:
    TLDR SPECS
    CPU

    • 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

    GPU

    • AMD R10x series GPU @ 800 MHz (Tahiti)
    • aggregate 10x RSX performance, 1.84 TFlops
    • DX”11.5″
    • cheap branching
    • 18 compute units, focus on fine grained compute & tessellation

    MEMORY:

    • 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

    MEDIA:

    • 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
    • downloadable games

    EXTRA HARDWARE:

    • video encoder/ decoder
    • audio processing unit, ~200 concurrent MP3 streams
    • HW zlib decompressor

    Our source claims that the final specs should be 10x powerful than PS3, due to this info has got 10 months.

    you do realize that the GPU that ran the Square demo is a GTX 680 right? & it has 3 TFLOPS vs 1.84 TFLOPS of the PS4 early spec GPU right?

    I think it's possible they might scale it down a little and still get similar results,
    kinda like how pc has adjustable settings AA 1080p and whatnot. plus console gaming always leaves room for optimization so even if the card is not strong enough they might still be able to achieve what they're looking for.

    I'm sure it could run with the PS4 specs I was just pointing that out because TGO said it could run the Watch Dog & The Square demo at the same time.

When the next Xbox reveal didn't happen as predicted, then the same knuckle-headed "specs" started being applied to the PS4 and it appears 99% of the gamers believing the specs were for the next Xbox had no trouble shifting their belief system that it was actually the specs for the PS4. Then, when there were too many logic holes, the usual bunch of idiots started filling in the logic holes. Come on, this electronic text that can be easily copied, pasted and edited to look like anything.


    they are not the same specs that was said to be Xbox Next specs.

    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.


    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=477540
    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.

    How can that be a "world exclusive" when it is the same afterbirth from a couple months ago?

    I'd suspect that they're pulled from say Jackass's arse.

    I don't believe the x86 Architecture for the next gen consoles that's being spun out of MS and now Sony. I believe it only when MS or Sony makes such an announcement.

    Well, in case you don't know, "Seems Legit" is the new meme for "are you $#@!ing $#@!ting me?".

    I'ma say exactly what the guy "Fred" on the source website said

    lol @ DX “11.5″
    You could have written OpenGL 4.2 to make this more believable.
    Nice try, though
    Direct x is a microsoft product, no way is sony using it. This is a load of bunk.

    Of all the reason you could call it fake, this is the lamest to be honest.

    But why should we believe this is real?

    As far as I know, there is no DirectX "11.5". The latest release is 11.1 for Windows 8 which the next-gen Xbox is likely to utilize since Microsoft recently secured the "Xbox 8" domain name. OpenGL 4.2 is also the latest version to be released so far. The guy mentioned it because it's more believable to use than something that doesn't yet exist.

    Not saying we should,But to say it's not just because DirectX is a Microsoft product is pretty lame imo.

    Licensing is always possible just like MS will license Blu-ray which Sony is part of just like MS uses Vaio laptops in some of their commercials and And some 360's are seen in some Sony picture movies... This is not MS handing over Halo here.
