In a press release sent to GamingBolt by IHS, a firm that specializes in video games analysis, new details about the PlayStation 4's APU and memory have been revealed.
SONY is on fire I can tell you why PS4 is so powerful. Because I (Sackboy) helped them :D http://i.minus.com/i4QwrpbX...
Whats an APU ? Edit : Got it, thank you.
A combination of CPU and any other component. In PS4's case an APU is the combination of CPU and GPU [an eight-core Jaguar CPU and a Radeon GPU]
In short; a CPU and GPU combined, helping each other perform tasks considerably faster.
“Sony clearly has made the decision to focus on balancing the brains and economics of the console, with the processor and memory dominating both the design and the BOM. This processor is a monster, with the surface area of the chip amounting to about 350 square millimeters. That is three times larger than any other chip manufactured using equivalent-process technology that has been examined by the IHS Teardown Analysis service. Despite the remarkable silicon acreage of this device, it comes at a price point attractive to mainstream consumers while delivering a very high level of performance. Future versions, manufactured with even more advanced semiconductor processing technology, will further enhance both cost and performance,” reveals Jordan Selburn, senior principal analyst for consumer platforms at IHS." PS4 is the strongest Console and to all the doubters http://s3.amazonaws.com/rap...
Seems like next gen uses large chips. Thought xb1 was chip was larger. Looked it up xb1 chip is 363mm vs ps4 350mm. These compared to Intel’s Core i7 4770K “Haswell” 177mm means next gen chips are pretty big.
Haha, you made my day :D
Amazing they could still fit it all in a tiny box.
Gotta love the news today.
And this means what in DBZ terms??Sorry guys i'm no techy person :/ @all below Lol you guys have all earned a bub xD.
It's power level is over 9000!
And it's not even its final form!
Just in case... http://www.youtube.com/watc... You are on point, sir
In your own words vegeta>>>Ps4 power level is over 9000 lol.
its over 9000 :) edit: wow GREAT MINDS
it's over 9,000 my friend, over 9,000..
Ssj2 boarder line 3. Not quite 4 lol
Goku and Vegeta Fusion
Picture the HULK in Super saiyan Form you get the picture.
Basically Broly then.
@the_truth Yessss but Green
DBZ? does DBGT count? if yes, then it's like before Goku turned into SSJ4, the golden monkey, that's what this means! it's not even its final form (thanks @xHeavYx), it can still be shrunken down and the best is still yet to come.
It's more like krillin -.- I joke i joke don't kill me :p
It's Kamehame with Super Saiyan God form that can blow the universe into pieces :P
The PS4 draws spirit energy from the APU + RAM + Secret Saiyan processor Sauce. Once all of the above energy has been combined. the PS4 Spirit Bombs your HDTV.
Krillin! I've never sensed an energy like this before!!! And it seems it's just warming up!!!! :O Goku! spirit bomb.... quick Boy, I love DBZ :)
Its well over 9000 and next year the system will perform the fusion dance with the vita making it possible to boot up vita and ps4 games.
PS4 - Goku Xbone - Tien WiiU - Krillin
In King Cold voice "what's a goku?"
Considering they took a massive GPU and added it to an 8 core cpu...of course its big.
That's what she said xD. http://youtu.be/jE4fJnM2ed4
1080p 60fps. Standard for next Gen.. Heck, I'm even going to buy a new TV this weekend.. so we have 2 1080p True HD TV;s.
1080p isnt standard for the xbox1. its 720p upscaled. hahaha
get an A/V and quality speakers/sub, you'll improve you gaming experience so much more than buying a new TV (as long as your TV is decent and decent sized). Trust me, the sound improvement with PS4 is incredible, but you need an adequate sound system to hear it. It's like playing games in a theatre now. I wonder how much of those massive Gigabyte game data is now going to sound.
No first you need a 1080p tv then add min 5.1 surround sound.
So 188 $ for 8 gb gddr5 ram , 100 for apu , blueray??, 500gb hard drive ?? and 1 controller ?? It's going to cost more than 399$
No, you got it slightly wrong; "the core processor AND the GDDR5 memory alone costs $188" So GDDR5=$88 and APU=$100, the bluray drive should be relatively cheap by now.
Thanks now it's going to be more accurate to ps4 price
$28 for the blue-ray drive. ...and from the sound of it, 28 cents for the HDMI port:) I kid, I have a PS4 but I was worried about it after the stories.
No it said the RAM and the core processor together was $188. Sony and MS said they were both making a profit on the consoles day 1.
Yes with $188 processor+gddr5 sony will make profit this time are much better than ps3 days for sony
Awesome processing unit?
The xbone defense force has been quiet about which has a better ram and architecture. only thing they brag about is forza has more positive scores than killzone. but reviews are not always credible.
The launch of this generation is echoing the launch of the last. Sony has the more powerful console, but Microsoft (so far) has the better games. The only PS4 exclusive with positive reviews so far is Resogun.
Well Resogun is the game with the least negative reviews, but it isnt a AAA title. Lot of biased reviews for KZ, Knack and even Forza got one negative on the other side of the fence that Ive seen this far, havent read it yet but Im going to. It is to be expected. FANBOY WARS RE-IGNITED (I guess).
You make it sound like both games are getting nothing above a 5, but I'm pretty sure both Killzone and Knack have positive reviews. The latter not as high as the former, averaging better than 6(which is at the bottom of the "good" range); Killzone, on the other hand, sits at a 7.5, which is a very good score.
3 times faster than a normal PS3. This must be Char's console....though it should be colored red :P
I think I'd rather have one painted up like a Black Tri-Star. Or Strike Freedom. Or Deathscythe Hell. Or Wing/Zero. Sorry, I'll stop now.
Lol, red is a required color for anything "3X Faster". It's a shame that the Tallgeese wasn't colored red since Zechs Merquise was sort of a Char clone.
True. Sometimes, I neglect Tallgeese, but the truth is that thing was a BEAST. Yes... a Tallgeese in red and gold trim would have looked VERY nice, indeed. And it would have been the only red suit aside from the rarely seen Cancer. Wing may have had the highest number of non-Gundam mobile suits that I liked. The Tallgeese was one, of course, and I LOVED the Aries. The Maganac were pretty badass, as were the Serpent suits from Endless Waltz. I also like the Taurus, Mercurius and Vayeate and Virgo(more the II, though). As I thought, it's still my favorite series. Though Duo grew up to be a jerk. Well, he was a jerk anyway, but man... Wonder if they have video game consoles in the AC universe...
