Check out the complete specs of the PS4.
they got rid of the cell?
omg ps4 is a beast!
Glad it will be more accessible. Hoping for a $400 starting price point.
rumor in the other article says it will be $599 us dollars again
True next-gen technology has been revealed.
A few months ago we were begging for these kind of specs and people told us it wasnt happening. Well, it's happened and then some! This machines specs are more than enough. The glimpses of the games we saw are a testament to that fact.
Confirmed next-gen console, showed games running on it and specs revealed... Yep pretty much how its supposed to go down ;) #Take notes
Can someone who knows their computer graphics tech explain to me how powerful the ps4 gpu is compared to say, an nvidia card? Like is it comparable to a GTX 460, a GTX 600 series or what?
Looks like Tobey's crying again.
an Nvidia 660. That's just the GPU and just talking about Teraflops. http://www.gpureview.com/sh... However, we haven't really been told what the CPU's Teraflop output is yet, so the total will end up being a bit more.
@tentons so...when are you making the video of you eating your hat? Can you put some tobasco sauce on it before you eat it?
@vickers500 What @Persistantthug said, although I don't understand why he used NVIDIA instead of AMD seeing how that's what the PS4 is using. Using AMD the GPU is somewhere between the 7850 and 7870. Factoring in the CPU and the amazing RAM and it should be on par with that HD 7870, so mid-high PC graphics. However, developer tools are better at coding for consoles, as the tools are focused on consistent and specific hardware, so expect to see games running comparably to current high-end PC's in the next 2 - 3 years. On a side note seeing how precise the recent rumors for the PS4 were (besides doubling RAM), it's safe to assume that the Xbox 720's specs. are pretty close as well, for better or worse.
It's going to be like a Radeon 7850. Just under 2 teraflops combined system performance. 7850 is 1.76 teraflops. 7870 by itself is 2.5 teraflops. The CPU we can assume Is the touted Jaguar cores simply because it was also called an APU and the CPU and GPU are on the same die. So it isn't gonna be a big CPU. Being x86 architecture it will be directly comparable with desktop pc parts. If it is the 8 core 1.6ghz Jaguar based design then it's about as fast as your average dual core desktop CPU. Jaguar cores are small and designed really for tablet style applications. So pretty much any desktop quad core from the past 4 years will be quite a bit faster. Raw performance of a midrange PC. Current top of the line single AMD GPU 7970 is 4.3 teraflops by itself. 7990 dual GPU card is 7.4 teraflops by itself. I read somewhere that an update of the Radeon product line due this year would put their top end single GPU card to at least 6 teraflops. Which is believable. So you get an idea with these examples.
"Axe99: Aye, but have to deal with a lack of optimization (because of the various hardware setups) and the huge tax on performance that running on Windows (if you're actually playing high-end games - there's very few high-end PC games on Linux or Mac) entails. Once you take into account the Windows resource 'tax', the PS4 specs actually compare pretty well with high-end PCs - far better than I expected, that's for sure."
Try a 7750... that combined with the APU would put that around 1.8tflops
that it is so bet youll have to pay a decent amount for that beast which i do not mind doing.
@TobeyMaguireFan U jelly? xfan? hehehehe
Who are you even replying to?
Anyone that's been around N4G for a while knows that is another account by the infamous user "Bungie", a great troll and/or a massive Xbox fanboy.
@silent Ohhh the irony... he can't use "Bungie" anymore... LOL
lol PS4 has made you so mad. Also, check his comment history before defending him people.
can someone explain to me how good all this is compared to lets say pc specs, does it make ps3 as powerful as midrange PCs or lower then that? Main Processor Single-chip custom processor CPU : x86-64 AMD “Jaguar”, 8 cores GPU : 1.84 TFLOPS, AMD next-generation Radeon™ based graphics engine ^ any good?
Nearly 2T.FLOPS for any console is amazing! I'm running a GTX 690 in my rig, which can manage 5.6T.FLOPS, but to even have a home system that can do 2 is going to work wonders for devs like Naughty Dog, Guerrilla Games (as we've seen with the new Killzone), Santa Monica, and Quantic Dream!
pc equivalent: GPU= ati 7850 (estimate by TFLOPS) CPU= AMD FX-8120 (A good guess) Memory=GDDR5 ---------The best part of the specs. Specs overall are pretty good. It is going to be like another ps3 > Wii difference between PS4>Wiiu.
single chip?? i thought they said they were on the same die?
ok so is wiiu still considered a next gen system lol? not a lot of great 3rd party support for nintendo again. on topic: its a day one purchase even if its $599. sony has a proven track record of delivering games and as a gamer above everything else i want games
personally i consider the wii U just current gen
wii u is next gen...its silly to even ask that question... un by the way = poeple around here doesn't know the true power the wii u has... its highly customized which is hard for analysts to determine the power of the console... but due to the fact that the architecture allows the system to put out better graphics than last gen consoles and only need mere 40W to power it ..its certainly next gen... The 8GB GDDR5 RAM inside the PS4 won't allow the system to sell under a minimum of 450$...at LEAST
Wii U is a next gen system. Nobody bought a WII U thinking "I am sure this will produce better graphics than the PS4!" if you STILL don't see the point of the WII U, you never will and as a gamer, I pity you. It must be a shame to only play games with mind blowing graphics while missing out on other great gaming experiences. Should we not play GOW: Ascension next month since it is releasing on PS3 which isn't as powerful as PS4? Well I will be loving playing Metal Gear on my PS4 and round of SSB WII U thrown in for good measure, if people want to limit their selves to only the first because they feel they owe it to Sony then that is their problem. Sony fans are like the posh slobs of gaming, thinking because they pay more and get better hardware that everything else simply isn't worth their time. I love PlayStation but dude, it's not all about graphics and hardware.
NBT91 dude graphics and atmosphere makes a hue part of the game, and no wiiu isn't next gen its stuck somewhere in the middle and will be over shadowed by ms and sony when it comes to next gen consoles releasing it a year before isn't gonna do it any favor, 3rd parties will be again on ps4 and next xbox. so yeah its great to have wiiu but only for nintendo exclusives. and as a long time sony fan i am glad they always raise the bar something nintendo hasn't done in a long time. call me a graphics whore but every game that comes out reviewers lavish it and say it looks amazing so what's wrong if i want my console experience to be stunning looking?
8GB GDDR5 RAM......INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
8GB of GDDR5 RAM was a huge shocker for me. All leaked specs indicated 4GB (although Sony stated to developers they were aiming for more). Hell, my recently-purchased AMD GPU "only" has 3GB, and I thought that was a lot!
Yeah, me too, Statix. I have an HD 7950 with 3GB of GDDR5. The PS4 will be a very powerful console. Especially if it has good tools (as rumored) and devs can code more to the metal.
Amazing. I can't wait to get a PS4.
its gonna cost ... and its gonna hurt a lot of people
it's not just size... what is the bit width of the bus... is it 128bit bus a 256? It wont be hire that's were the expense really starts getting crazy
C'mon people the big news today is the nvidia Titan is being released today for 839 pounds
PS4 8GB of GDDR5 QUANTUM LEAP > TITAN is like 6GD og GDDR3? lol old gen.. even GDDR5 is still inferior because the PS4 has 8gb of it!
I am happy for a few reasons 1: I love when new console tech comes out. 2 I will have amazing new games on this new console to play with and 3rd: Finally game engines will evolve further on PC and this new console tech. If that all makes sense cool.
You wan't a cheap console with same games every year, buy an xbox You wan't a kiddie games with outdated hardware, buy an Wii U You wan't a console that's future proof, lots of diff game genres to choose and play, and a premium hardware buy a PS4
For one, you can't even say anything about the next xbox as we know no actual facts about it. For all we know, it could be a more powerful system, or be on par with the ps4. Microsoft has plenty of games being made for next generation. And many we dont even know about, like Fuse from crytek. You're just another troll that plagues this website.
how does this guy have 5 bubbles?
Oh they went with amd this time :O, nvidea must be pissed.
nVidia's fault, they priced themselves out of Xbox, they priced themselves out of PS4... plus, they're so draconian when it comes to licensing tech that the PS3 Linux does not have hardware access to the RSX GPU, which inspired hackers to hack the PS3 in the name of 'homebrew'... lol, Project Shield...
Sony just made the local news here in primetime and are doing a segment. Nice job their Sony!
They should have Layman's terms for computer talk.
Around the power of a radeon 7850 with a mid range processor.
No... a APU with that... drop it down to a 7750... you have ~800GFLOP combined with the ~ 1tflop from CPU
Haha your getting disagrees as if most people here know how to talk all that computer spec mumbo jumbo. I completely agree with you, I'm not a computer guy so without any context these number are useless to me.
GDDR5 8GB This makes me very happy.
im with you on that brotha
And devs happy...no excuses for Crytek
And Bethesda :)
that made blizzard happy as well.
And a 8 core AMD CPU! i have a 6 core, AMD is the best, Low price great performance.
Not better than intel Heyoooooooooo!
@2pacalypsenow AMD is Better than Intel http://www.youtube.com/watc... EDIT: Before u Disagree watch the video first.
Sony probably would've used Intel, but they probably charged way to much for their hardware specs, amd was far more reasonable which is the reason they went with them instead.
Mr. Warden you must be extremely impressed with the new console. when will your new viral video on YouTube release? :)
it definitely does, that is some huge amount of RAM, especially that its DDR5. Though my wallet is crying in the corner of the room right now thinking of much money i will have to spend this gen again to be able to play in all formats
'802.11 b/g/n' Hurray! My biggest problem with the PS3 was the wireless.
Shit i was hoping for AC. Oh well still great.
Correct me if I'm wrong but only old phatties didn't support 'n' protocol. Slim and SuperSlim do have it.
No, none of the PS3 models have 'n' protocal sadly.
The specs are really good in my opinion. I am very happy with the specs and can't wait to see what games they create on the PS4.
nice, but We Still don't know what the PS4 looks like
personally, it could look like a shoebox and I would be happy.
Confirmed, PS3 will look like a shoebox. I'd still buy it.
