True next-gen technology has been revealed.
Septic  +   424d ago
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.

vickers500  +   424d ago
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?
Enemy  +   424d ago
Looks like Tobey's crying again.
Persistantthug  +   424d ago
@vickers500......The approx answer to your question is approx
an Nvidia 660.
That's just the GPU and just talking about Teraflops.

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.

so...when are you making the video of you eating your hat? Can you put some tobasco sauce on it before you eat it?
ABizzel1  +   424d ago

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.
vulcanproject  +   424d ago
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

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?
CGI-Quality  +   424d ago
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!
chasegarcia  +   424d ago
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.

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
silvacrest  +   424d ago
personally i consider the wii U just current gen
hivycox  +   423d ago
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
NBT91  +   423d ago
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.
showtimefolks  +   423d ago

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?
Ryo-Hazuki  +   424d ago
8GB GDDR5 RAM......INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Statix  +   424d ago
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!
starchild  +   424d ago
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.

SignifiedSix  +   424d ago
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.

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'...

Well... Sony still needs things to show at E3, they already got the specs out of the way and the user interface. They are going to most likely show the console, reveal the price, give an official release date, give us more info Gaikai connectivity, and the best part... MORE GAMES!!!! I see sony stealing the show this E3. Microsoft is probably going to waste time talking about the specs and hardware, and talk about all those useless features we don't really care about. Nintendo will do really well, showing the new Mario, Smash Bros., and all the other good stuff. This E3 is going to be the best E3 in a while.

Not really. We pretty much got all we needed from the PS Event. Showing the console will mostly just give us insight into its aesthetic value.

I imagine that they're are either finalizing its design or keeping it from us so as to keep interest and excitement for the system at high levels by exploiting our natural curiosity on the subject. Doing so ensures that they'll make as big of a splash as possible come E3.

kevnb  +   424d ago
what makes you say that? Because other than the 8 gigs of ram, they certainly are in some games. When watching actual gameplay of killzone it felt like crysis 2 on pc, which contradicts what you say.
I dont think any devs are fully utilizing the ps4 at the moment, I dont even think they have any idea what to do with all that ram... Unless of course they plan on going 4k or some other really high res. There we can see systems use up to 3 gigs of ram, and cards like nvidias new titan have 6 gigs of memory for video ram...

Now I probably will get a ps4 at some point, I like sonys first party games after all. But I havent seen much to make me go out and get one just yet. The first year or two of a new console is usually pretty rough compared to what comes out later, so Ill just hold on to my gtx 460 and ps3 for now and see what happens.

Sony just made a laptop a console... It's going to have heat problems too unless it is liquid cooled. I expect ms to do the same now Sony is totally exposed ms is just going to throw money at their next system.

GTX 460?

The SE Demo was first showed running on a GTX 680. This same demo looked the same running on the PS4.

You need to upgrade to have a better point
nypifisel  +   424d ago

If you actually knew anything about anything you'd know that what we saw today in the killzone demo is nothing we'd ever seen before, the technical achievement of rendering that world is astonishing and Crysis 2 doesn't even come close. I'm not saying it wasn't possible on PCs before, cause it was I'm just saying no one has crafted anything like it for PC before.

I was utterly impressed of the technical side of the demo, the 3D was really good and you need some prowess to render that kind of environment, and at least that's certainly not something any current gen console could manage.

Not to forget the Unreal 4 demo on the PS4 which bodes for a bright future (cause as you might or might not know, not even PC got any games built with that engine yet).. And I only play PC games, this excites me cause now finally we might start using some of the potential of the PC (at least the next year or two)
BitbyDeath  +   424d ago
Note: I stated games, not PC's themselves.
Biggest game is Crysis 3 and PS4 exceeds it spec wise. eg. 8GB GDDR3 ram will get you max graphics on PC where as PS4 has 8GB GDDR5.

For the record, only 2GB of ram is req'd for Crysis 3 to work on minimal.

your pc got more than 8 cores cpu ?
Sangheili85  +   424d ago
Sure, why not? Google AMD FX-8350, its an 8 core CPU for only $199

Its nothing special, AMD has been making high core CPUs for a while now and they are dirt cheap, but thats for a reason. AMD's 8 core processor gets beat out by a quad core Intel i7.

I'm guessing that is why Sony went with AMD, seeing that their chips are very cheap compared to Intel.
Nicolee  +   424d ago
AMD FX-8350 is 8 cores . my previous comment i asked about that if his PC has more than 8 cores.

Don't be a fanboy, yeah its true you could spend 3,000 dollars on the (most) high powered pc you can buy now, and get roughly 10% more power then will be in the ps4.

On top of that, pc is always held back by console focused development, so this will be an upgrade for pc gamers as well.

Futher more, d bag dude pc elitist idiot man, in the world right now, and when the ps4 releases, maybe 4% of all pc gamers will have a rig that strong.

So.... No pc games will utilze all your expensive wasted POWAR!!!!!!BUT you can keep going and flashy you gimpy E penis to everyone,

i dont think anyone really said that it would only be marginally better than the WiiU.. most people have said that the leap wouldnt be that big (which this gen was freaking huge) and its true, there is definitely a big difference in power. But if you ask me, i still dont see any reason why most 3rd party games would not be released on the wii u. PS4(Ultra settings)/720(Ultra-High settings) / WiiU (Medium-Low settings). But nothing like this gen that they couldnt even use the same engine

Actually I totaly forgot about the Wii U

Damn...Nintendo are in a bit of trouble aren't they. I bet they didn't expect this.

If the price is good then that's going to hurt Nintendo the most.

No way if third party devs going to support the Wii U when they can do better stuff on the PS4 and possibly the Nextbox
silvacrest  +   424d ago
developers will go where the install base is, right now, the wii u is selling pretty poorly

Blu Ray 6x,USB 3.0, and 8 GB GDDR5 Ram.

That all sounds great to me.

I wonder is it a solid state hdd though? Even if it isn't included, it'll probably support them anyway.

Lets hope.
--Onilink--  +   424d ago
haha i think you are pushing the boundaries of what Sony is able to put into the market with a purchaseable price if you want Solid State Drive.

With 8Gb DDR5 it really shouldnt make that much of a difference anyway, they can load most of the stuff on the RAM

I wonder how big Hard drive we will get. Hoping for atleast 250 gigs what i really want is 500gb, that would be perfect. If not i hope we can remove the HDD and insert another one.
ExCest  +   424d ago
It says built in hdd so the hopes of many (including mine) have been shattered.
Hicken  +   424d ago
The PS3 has a built-in HDD. Not stopping anybody from swapping that thing out, is it?
BitbyDeath  +   424d ago
And people thought this wouldn't be as powerful as a PC.
iamgoatman  +   424d ago
Well you can't say it's "as powerful as a PC." as all PC's are different, but if we're comparing PS4 specs vs max potential PC specs of today, it's still way behind enthusiast level gaming PC's. That's just a fact, PC's will always be ahead of console, but they do come at a cost.
tubers  +   423d ago
That's a dumb and vague statement at best.
isyourhouseonfire  +   424d ago
This PS4 is a bomb already.. As a gamer, I'm scared.
XIIIWARRIOR41  +   424d ago
Where is the console?
Tsar4ever  +   422d ago

6x BD, that's 216Mbit.
Quite a leap from the current 2x 72Mbit.

Does that mean no more mandatory installs?
Azurite  +   424d ago
Good point, maybe.
Skate-AK  +   424d ago
Yeah probably just optional.
The realness  +   424d ago
whats crazy is how accurate semiaccurates reports were. This is pretty much the spec they have been saying for nearly a year now.

@pody..as is mine but I think this is good for a console.But the games are looking good. Aint that all that matters?

Drive club dont look that impressive but Im willing to give it the benefit of the doubt for now. KZ, infamous and deep down look like they will be fun though. Im sold.

But why they being so shy about the looks you would think it was an ugly betty the way they are behaving! lol
r21  +   424d ago
With that much memory, its hard not to be excited bout open world games. Oh and another game which I will hugely be looking forward to, LBP3!
The realness  +   424d ago
correction KZ looked amazing..them glass buildings...sheesh!
orakle44  +   424d ago
Yep when i was watching the vid, i was like well now there just showing off. lol

people crying about Nintendo need to realize Nintendon't care!
Pokemon,monster hunter,Zelda,Mario etc They make money and will continue to be profitable in the future.
we all have real world data to show that Nintendo was well into the Black while Sony was wallowing in losses non stop.
Mario is shitting but he has a throne made of golden coins.
I am curious who is going to have good launch titles.
NBT91  +   423d ago

A beast console,that's what it is,I really enjoyed the meeting seriously too awesome ! can't wait for E3 !!
SkyCrawler  +   424d ago
Waiting for the usual "My pc is better because..." comments. Seriously PC elitists are acting like whining babies. Every time theres a positive comment about the PS4's capabilities I always see the usual PC elitists ready to throw down their specs. No one asked you. We know what the PC is capable of. They can't make games without them. It looks like they're the underdog crying for attention and its really annoying. At first it was Console fanboy vs. Console fan-boy. Now its PC fb's vs. console fb's. Either way, all of the fanboyism's annoying.
duplissi  +   424d ago
my pc is better.
kevnb  +   424d ago
well the titan gives 4.5 teraflops, so it wont be long before mainstream pcs are more powerful. The unified ram thing is interesting though. edit: Well just saying, the titan is expensive right now, but wait a year or two and then that kind of power is affordable. Im not talking about something that matches the ps4 in power, im talking about something that should be able to blow it away.

The titan costs as much as a complete gaming set up with no real benefits to the average gamer.
duplissi  +   424d ago
the titan is only for masochists.... it costs more than my whole pc, which btw can run everyting maxxed at 1080p

any possible DS3 support?
onyoursistersback  +   424d ago
i had read a week ago that yes....the DS3 will be supported
volcane  +   423d ago
If it supports the Move controller, I assume it must support the DS3.
volcane  +   422d ago
Seems I assumed wrong :(

ambientFLIER  +   424d ago
Hmm, this looks pretty good. Maybe this gen I will actually get into the Playstation brand. My PS3 is collecting dust. Mostly it's the controller...too small, too uncomfortable.
SkyCrawler  +   424d ago
you do know there are alternative controllers of all different shapes and sizes out there, right?
ambientFLIER  +   423d ago
I do. I also have a thing against PSN. It's a pain in the ass to use compared to xbl. Downloading updates takes forever, then they have to install for a while as well. Then the game itself has to get updated. I'm just not feeling the overall experience, even if it's free.
Grandmaster-B  +   424d ago
The RAM is a bomb, but not the X86. The Cell is not much behind this CPU.
Sorry to say, but thats the truth.

Looked KZ4 16xRAM better than KZ3???
nypifisel  +   424d ago
x86-64 is what all modern PCs uses today... How is that not only a good thing from every point of view?

The obvious advantage with using a PC architecture is with what ease developers will be able to code for it, it doesn't have any disadvantages over the Cell, and as already stated, every single PC in the world have been using this architecture for decades now and it's still standard in every tier. So what the heck do you mean?

The Cell is garbage for game calculations. It was designed for a server, and should have been able to give gaming an advantage in theory, but in practice, it never showed. Ever. The Cell was a failure. Failure for Sony, the programmers, everyone.
