Sony Introduces PlayStation 4
At the press-event in New York Sony unveiled its next-generation PlayStation 4 game console, formerly known as Orbis.
PlayStation 4 uses an AMD’s APU. The APU is s based on the new energy-efficient "Jaguar" micro-architecture. The next-gen game console will support an x86-64 AMD Jaguar 8-core processor, a Radeon GPU with 18 compute units that is reportedly capable of dishing out 1.84 Teraflops, and an integrated memory controller that supports GDDR5 memory. Sony crammed a staggering 8 GB of GDDR5 memory, which the APU uses as both system and graphics memory.
- Processor: SoC including x86-64 octacore AMD Jaguar and 1.84 TFLOPS next-generation AMD Radeon based GPU
- RAM: 8 GB GDDR5
- HDD: built-in
- ODD: BD 6xCAV, DVD 8xCAV read-only
- Ports: USB 3.0, AUX, HDMI, Analog-AV out Digital Output (optical)
- Communication: Ethernet (10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, 1000BASE-T), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 (EDR)
The PlayStation 4 controller design doesn't differ much from the iconic design passed on by the past three generations. In addition to its usual buttons and features, there are two new inputs that add extra dimensions to game control: capacitive touchpad, giving 2D pointing capabilities, 3D gyro and accelerometer.
The third ingredient to the experience building is an improved PlayStation Network, it will give you access across all media apart from the console itself (PC web, mobiles, tablets, etc.).
