Sony has kindly released the official system specs of the PlayStation 4 giving us a glimpse into the consoles inner workings.
If this is your kind of thing, check them out down below:
- CPU: single-chip custom processor, x86-64 AMD 8 Core “Jaguar”
- GPU: 1.84 TFLOPS, AMD Radeon-based graphics engine
- Memory: 8GB GDDR5
- 6X Blu-Ray Drive, 8X DVD
- Built-in HDD
- HDMI and Analog-AV
- USB 3.0
- Gigabit Ethernet port, 802.11 B/G/N built-in WiFi. Plus Support for Bluetooth 2.1
I don’t know what most of that lot up there means, but what I do know is bigger numbers mean better, right? All joking aside even I, a novice when it comes to computer parts and what not, know that 8GB of GDDR5 RAM is impressive, a vast increase on the 512MB that the PlayStation 3 holds. Built in WiFi is pretty much standard and expected with all consoles now, so it’s good to see that Sony haven’t gone back on themselves in the hope for selling an extra WiFi peripheral (a la Xbox 360 in its early days) as well as the system being built on the x86 architecture that developers will instantly be familiar with.
When Sony said that the PlayStation 4 is basically a supercharged computer, they weren’t kidding.
