The PS4′s loving dad (or at least one of its fathers) Mark Cerny did a lot of thinking on the console’s architecture even before the first piece of circuitry was printed, so he's the best one to explain how the much touted 8 gigabytes of unified GDRR5 RAM coupled with the bus work, and why that solution was implemented.
Why doesnt n4g just makes one article telling everything that mark cerny explain instead having so many articles on mark cerny explained this and that..
No offense n4g
Mark is spreading the second coming of the king of console. The book of revelation of gaming shall be fulfill this holiday 2013
I watched the whole youtube presentation posted by the official playstation channel, it was technical at some points but I was engaged for the whole 47 mins and I learned a lot even about previous playstation consoles. I was amazed at how involved Cerny was with playstation since day 1 in 1994 but only found out about him at the feb reveal for ps4
Cerny is very, very wise.
not in technical terms... just looking at that picture from the article comparing architectures..
the one on the left allows developers to acces the 176GB per seconds from the start
while the one on the right would only allow them to use 88GB per second at first
they would only unleash the other 1000GB when the small EDram chip or whatever is mastered right?
and that would take a few years.. im i right?
