A lot of rumors are flooding internet about GPU enhancements in PS4. We will try to give more info about this AMD’s custom graphic card inside PS4.
Are people still calling it the Orbis? It's the PS4, that's official now... (As if there was any doubt anyway lol.)
And before the mods say anything, VGLeaks was dead on with their rumors on PS4 so please allow this to go through.
Yeah I got that flag also, but they were spot on with their leaks, more so than other websites. Regarding the link you just posted I submitted a rumor earlier on N4G.
popped a vein trying to understand it tried Google translate but still no luck
Links weren't save in my post from last edit? o.O first mentioned on beyond forums now backed by VGL. http://www.neogaf.com/forum... discussion/breakdown of VGL article where they'll translate the nerdy tech speak for the rest of us. http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
apparently the GPU is designed to be very quick with switching tasks, and to take the most advantage of that lots fast RAM is needed, this is where the 8g of DDR5 comes in.
So another confirmation that it's based on the HD 7000 series. Ironically, the RSX was based on the GeForce 7000 series as well back in 2005.
HD 8000 series
So its closer to AMD 7850. No wonder they aren't introducing 8 series this year.
It's more powerful than a 7850 actually, but yeah if we were to compare the GPU between a 7870/7850 it would be closer to a 7850.
