Interesting read, it's always cool learning what happens inside the box.
400GB discs? NICE!
"JUST LIKE ITS PREDECESSOR" Confirmed Ps3 400GB disc compatibility 5 years ago. http://www.engadget.com/200... Doubdt we will see it being used for games. 100GB disc maybe, but 400? Well.
So what did the CPU clock end up being? Haven't seen anything about that
180 I read earlier.
yeah. odd. No one mentioned clocks, even after the launch? Anybody got a link to the clockspeeds?
If they aren't saying anything, it was probably left at 1.6 My opinion
The optical drive fuses, and the thermistors are all very interesting, but really you did not 'dive deep' with regards to the clock speeds of the APU components. (Arghhh, n4rc beat me to it).
Needs data on clock speed and SATA spec pls. And how the system handles files and wether itll support trim with SSD etc.
Agreed. Also I'd like to know more about that 2 Gb of memory for the secondary processor. I've seen some articles state that it was 2 GB another state it was 2 Gb. Regardless, it is very essential for the PS4 to have this as it offsets a lot of the OS functions to the secondary processor, which allows developers to use the full power of the Jaguar cores to their games advantage. Same thing goes for the memory, but to a lesser extent. I'm almost wondering why they didn't include 2 or 4 GB of DDR3 RAM specifically for operating system functions, that way the 8 GB would be available completely for games. I'm guessing it was a money thing, since they already are only making $18 off of each unit. Which is actually great, because most manufacturers lose money on their systems when they release them. I love this kind of information. It's nice to know what is going on inside the unit. I don't know if anybody has seen the breakdown video, where they break down each piece… But it's amazing how well and efficient Sony put this machine together. The best build Ive ever seen, as far as computers are concerned. Great stuff.
