Check Out The PS4's CPU Specs
If you've been looking for a full breakdown of PS4 specs, Sony was prepared to oblige during this year's GDC conference.
Check out the full rundown and then decide for yourself. Many are saying these are essentially nothing more than low-end PC specs, while others say they're a bit more special than that. Here's the PS4's CPU:
- 64-bit x84 arch
- Low power consumption
- Low heat
- 8 cores, HW threads
- 2MiB L2-cache per 4 core group, 32kib I1 I/D-cache
- PlayStation Shader Language
- Similar to HLSL
- Allows featured BEYOND DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0
There's also 8GB of 256-bit GDDR5 RAM and they're saying the machine will come with "a very large hard drive." Many are hoping for 1TB, because that seems like what we'll need to deal with the size of next-gen titles. While it's certainly true that the PS4 is more developer-friendly than past PlayStation consoles, a lot of gamers don't like the sacrifices Sony had to make in terms of futuristic, cutting-edge power. Well, don't forget; that kind of thing costs everyone more and people freaked out over the $600 PS3 price tag, remember...? Can't have it both ways, ya know.
