PS4 is based on GCN 2: having 8 ACE's (AMD’s new Asynchronous Compute Engines), each capable of running 8 CL's each. Tahiti and 7970/7870 have two ACEs, 2 CL's per ACUs.

If I make that simple the ACUs are like the SPUs in the CELL which are efficient in heavy calculations operations and Cerny confirmed that they can mimic the behaviour of the SPUs with them which gives us 64 operations compared to 4 in a ATI 7970. That's the power of a GPGPU. It is a greta idea for Sony from shifting the CELL a processor doing graphical stuff to a GPU doing CPU stuff.

"PS4 Can Perform Asynchronous Complex Processes"

I am not surprised at Mark Cerny's enthusiasm. However to be honest its misplaced, i dont blame him after PS3 being restricted to a decade old tech for so long any upgrade is a relief, the mans constant articles show how desperate console developers had become in general, games can finally progress again.

Though really so many praising articles and yet PS4 is still limited to 30fps on most games, some supercharged PC that is lol.

Console games are never going to run at 60 FPS as standard. Even when developers start to be able to squeeze more out of the hardware, there is always going to be a trade-off. They can either put more pixels, shaders, lighting effects and other graphical elements on screen at once, or they can include less shiny graphics stuff and have it run at 60 FPS.

And shiny graphics stuff sells to a far larger audience than high framerates. "Look at this sweet explosion" and "Look at the detail of the facial animation" speaks to people. "Look at the framerate" doesn't. As long as it isn't choppy, people don't care whether it's running at 30 or 60. While there will always be exceptions, on the whole developers are always going to push for more graphical detail than a higher framerate.
TheLEGENDofTydo  +   544d ago
@decrypt

Your so wrong about the 30fps thing.
The PS3 wasn't even limited to 30fps, it was limited at 60.

The ps4 is limited to 120fps but nobody care about fps and if you do then you're just not a gamer. Battlefield at 60fps looks no better than Call of Duty at 30 fps. And even the games i have for my $3000 pc that play at 120fps look just as smooth as my ps3 does.

Every gpu can do that, as gpu's can do multiple streams of data, while cpu's can only do one per thread.

However, its just not a good idea, as cpu's handle a lot more data per thread then a gpu can.

Its a bit different with consoles though, pc games have to work across many different specs which is why games never take full advantage of an individual PC.

Its different with consoles where they will do everything to max these things out. Its not uncommon for devs to use uncommon techniques and try out different things to really push a console.
Foxgod  +   545d ago
Understandable, but i cant see it happen, as you would have to sacrifice a significant amount of 3d processing, just to push the physics and AI a bit.
dantesparda  +   545d ago
No, not all gpu's can do this, gpgpus can and even then there are limits, like most cant do general purpose computing while simultaneously doing graphics processing, whereas the the PS4's gpu can (its one of the mods done on it). And a feature that AMD is going to bring out to the PC soon

@Dantesprada True, not every GPU can, but every GPU since the 8800 cards (2006) have had GPGPU capabilities.

Every game that uses PhysX GPU accelerated physics does collisions, simulations, and world simulations (optional). GPU texture decompression is pretty common too. The only thing new here (I did some research and couldn't find much information on it) is the ray casting for audio, which sounds like an awesome piece of tech if they plan on using it for what I think they'll use it for.

The Ps4's CPU/GPU is integrated with a large bandwith, neither PC or Xbone have an integrated GPU.

Maybe in the near future the PC could be designed with this integration, but in the Xbone's case is unlikely.

@Foxgod @Pandamobile

As already stated by @PLASTICA-MAN the customisations in the PS4's GPU make its GPU far better at these operations than an off-the-shelf PC GPU:-

PS4 GPU
- 8 ACE's each capable of running 8 CL's each.
- Additional bus providing a direct link to system memory that bypasses the GPU's caches.
- Enhanced L2 cache to better support simultaneous use by graphics and compute workloads.

PC GPU (7970 / Titan)
- 2 ACE's each capable of running 2 CL's each.

PS4 GPU admittedly behind on stream processors and ROPS but still holding its own for a console GPU!

On top of the above we are talking about a closed system and programing directed at same, no PCI bus limitations etc, therefore I can't see how this isn't something special as every GPU since the 8800 has had GPUGPU capabilities!
Ju  +   544d ago
Those 64 compute channels will make a difference. This combined with a slim API which allows the PS4 efficiently "scheduling" compute tasks within the render pipeline plus a coherent memory sub-system is far beyond PCs. If anything it's simply a higher granularity to submit compute jobs efficiently. Sure, it won't make up for brute force core count, but we'll see some quite nice results in the coming years when developers will start taking full advantage of the architecture.

Foxgod  +   545d ago
Not entirely, multi tasking refers to running multiple application at a time.
Asynchronous complex processes refers to multiple data streams being processed that can be individual data streams from different processes going on inside one application

Multi tasking is a lot broader and cannot be applied to asynchronous processing, as this can only happen within an app.

Asynchronous processing can be perfectly done on cpu's these days however, considering cpu's these days have multiple threads.
Which is why i stated in another reply, that its just fancy talk.

Angeljuice  +   545d ago | Intelligent
@Foxgod @ Nocando

The way the PS4 does it is completely different.

A conventional CPU writes to CPU memory, that data is then moved to the gpu's memory pool, the gpu processes the data and the processed data is stored on the gpu's memory pool whilst waiting to be moved back to the main memory again.

PS4 has a unified memory pool, both the CPU and GPU can access ALL the data directly. This isn't currently possible on any PC anywhere in the world.

PC: CPU> mem1> mem2> GPU> mem2> mem1> CPU

PS4: CPU> mem1> GPU> mem1> CPU

It is a much faster process and doesn't bottleneck the limited PCIe bandwidth as it would in a PC.

You learn something new everyday eh?

Don't worry Nocando, I won't call you a 'tard' for not knowing this, you simply don't know what you're talking about.

They don't say "multitasking" because it really isn't. Multitasking requires context saving on a per "task" basis. Means, each "task" stores it's context. And this isn't supported. I once said it's "pseudo" HW threading of the GPU, because it allows you to schedule multiple jobs to the compute units, but the GPU won't save any states, etc. This isn't yet possible with the current architecture.

A CPU is slow to do games anyway. 8 cores are 8 cores. It isn't an i7 but still plenty of resources - especially because you can run so many threads in parallel. But no matter what, you wouldn't want to do the heavily lifting on the CPU anyway. A GPU will always be faster in most gaming tasks - e.g. physics. No matter how fast your CPU is. Or would you prefer running PhysX on the fastest i7 even though you'd have a 7970 in your PC?

I play WARFRAME on a I5 2500K, and a ati 6870, easily over 60fps @ 1080p maxed. You don't need a powerful system to run it.

Trouble with PC games alot of the time, they are poorly coded, and run like crap on alot of systems, the reason big gpu's are needed alot is because of raw power.

If the code was better, you would not need it so much.

Games coming for PS4 will benefit PC users. Code will be much cleaner, better looking games all round.
JsonHenry  +   545d ago
I'm hoping they tap out all 8 cores for extra tasks and leave the GPU to do what it does best- graphics. It is cool that the GPU can do these extra things but I don't I want them to max out the cores of the CPU before asking the GPU to do things it was designed for thus lowering overall gfx fidelity.
Ju  +   544d ago
A lot of those tasks are graphics related. One bottleneck is CPU/GPU interaction. Doesn't help if a GPU stalls because it needs to wait for the CPU. You'd rather do something useful with that time. That's exactly where this come into play. It's all about efficiency of GPU and CPU not one versus the other.

TABSF  +   544d ago
Sure the PS4 is a good piece of tech but to say that what is being done has never been done before is foolish.

They're using an AMD APU solution, AMD have been making them for years now and It basically a PC/Laptop processor that features CPU/GPU/Northbridge

The CPU Jaguar Cores are about 10% quicker than Bobcat however its about 50% slower than Piledriver, furthermore Piledriver is slower than Sandy, Ivybridge and Haswell.

On the GPU side its effectively HD 7870 GHz Edition with 2 Compute Units hardware disabled and of course lower frequencies.
All these "Enhanced Technologies" already exist on PC and have done for years now, just a different name.

The memory is the most impressive element on the console from the hardware front.

Finally, if anyone thinks that the PS4 can complete with PC from 2012 then I'm sorry but you are mistaken.

Intel Core i7 2600K / AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition
Intel Core i7 3770K / AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition
Intel Core i7 4770K / Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan

I could list many more and they would easily beat PS4, oh and these could do 4K gaming.

PC GPUs can go beyond 1920 by 1080 since 2007, anti-aliasing is a given, 4096 by 4096 textures, hell even 8192 by 8192 can be done with ease dependent on the users GPU

You had me at PS4 Sony, so Mark, take a chill pill, because you don't need to do the sell, as smart gamers know that Sony consoles get THE GREATEST EXCLUSIVES....I mean, I just played the demo of Papa & Yo, & it is one of the most awesome digital downloadable games I've experienced (& I do own 360 as well, along with Mark Of The Ninja & many of it's gems), but thing is, there are just games on Sony's consoles, whether digital or disk based, that are just not available on other consoles & NOTHING like them is. The Last Of Us, is a great example of a game that is truly groundbreaking & awesome, & this late in the gen... & I just got through playing some Starhawk, & this game is an underated, criminally commercially under valued masterpiece...I mean, this is one awesome piece of gaming, not available on any other platform, no nothing like it is.

The fact that Cerny has designed this machine, along with huge input from MANY, MANY, huge, influential developers having an input that was not only listened to, but also implemented into Sony's new machine, should be testament enough for all "GAMERS", while the more easily impressed, less tech savvy, electronics hipsters will go for MS's new camera based machine.
I mean, I will probably get a Xbone down the line, when is cheaper & a subscription to XBLive is proven to not be needed, as I will never give these p%$ks money for online, as they are the turds that have made it the norm now. But, I will get a PS4 day 1, & I will sign up for PSN+ (under silent protest & pissed offed-ness), & be a bit happier, than if paying for Live, due to all the freebies Sony tends to offer with there service. Another reason "GAMERS"....I mean real, true blue, 100% game oriented early adopters , should & hopefully will go for PS4 as there primary, or only console.
I know, if I was only to buy 1 machine, it would be PS4, over both Wii-U (which I already own, & no, not worth it for anything), & XBone, no doubt whatsoever.
The other 2 are built around gimmicks, & both are underpowered, thanks to the expense of said gimmicks.

and none of you know what that means, but brag about it to fuel the console war

What war? That stopped being the case right about the same time as the xbox one reveal, don't you remember when they crushed dreams by announcing tv was the way forward and gaming was a secondary function?
