Single chip custom processor
8 Jaguar cores x86 CPU
1.84 Teraflops GPU (18CU)
The GPU contains a unified array of 18 compute units, which collectively generate 1.84 Teraflops of processing power that can freely be applied to graphics, simulation tasks, or some mixture of the two.
8GB GDDR5 176GB/s unified
Immediate Gameplay
PS4 radically reduces the lag time between players and their content. PS4 features “suspend mode” which keeps the system in a low power state while preserving the game session. The time it takes today to boot a console and load a saved game will be a thing of the past. With PS4, gamers just hit the power button again and are promptly back playing the game at the exact point where they left off. Additionally, users can boot a variety of applications including a web browser when playing a game on PS4.
PS4 also enables games to be downloaded or updated in the background, or even in stand-by mode. The system takes it one step further by making digital titles playable as they are being downloaded. When a player purchases a game, PS4 downloads just a fraction of the data so gamers can start playing immediately, and the rest is downloaded in the background during actual gameplay.

Personally i think 16 gigs of RAM was gonna be main point this generation.....but seeing how we went from 512 mb to 8 gigs is a pretty big and nice jump

Wifi should be ac too

Also I think 2 separate chips for handling all that social #### in the background and the other be used for graphics and gameplay

But I'm a$suming since developers are included in process of making the ps4 that they made a system powerful enough for games plus we didn't see true next gen games for the ps3 and Xbox until a couple of years into the game console life...developers still need to take advantage of epic graphics and what they can do with it

This is the opposite of ps3, they are not going for omg power,
They are going for basic none complex architecture, cheaper than ps3 in every way. They selling ps4 to The social network crowd, smart phones crowd they got the hardcore by default
This console will be very affordable in order to grab a huge part of the market.

This is just like that Carny guy lined up, just an affordable high end LIKE PC rig
299.99-349.99, only one Sku not confused these social network crowd they are aiming for,
Giving the hardcore their infamous, k!llzone, have the Halo crowds attention ,ubisoft,capcom bunch of other 3rd party same old expected games all told make sure they target the main goal the social network crowd. Did you notice they had k!llzone post on facebook a racing game full of social gaming features etc.

Being the most powerful and having shocking graphics did nothing, uncharted games sell weak even though it looks like it needs to sale like HALO, speaking of that it Sony still doesnt have a game that sells like that, lets be serious Destiny is still a 360 exclusive, PS crowd aint into Halo mmo games, they will right off he bat say "killzone is better", xbox gamers will appreciate the work of Bungie.

given my superior knowledge and having taking and passed several classes on spec analysis, i can confirm that these specs are great

its a CUSTOM chip meaning they've made it so that the atoms and neurons of the processor work together in a much smoother way, making the vector pixels alot smoother and crispier..it's something us experts call "creme de la foie" (highly sophisticated term, don't worry if you don't understand it)

Um more than likely they're going to allow developers to use 6-7. They could've kept the 4gb DDR5 and been okay, but they decided to bump it up for speed. How many of you are running DDR5 on your PC right now? You don't truly understand the speed.

The cost will be 399-499.

They'll take a 50-100 dollar lost on each console, but they'll make up that with PS World Subscriptions.

And considering the fact PS3 & 360 were mid range PC's during that time and they still pump out some cool games.

What you saw on KZ4 is just a launch title that's not even touching the surface. Wait until it's fully put into progress.

That's the problem with you people on BX. Most of you are clueless when it comes to this stuff and are blinded by the truth. If you don't know specs and hardware just stay out of the conversation as you show your ignorance.

It's even worse when someone says that this is basically a Wii-U.

Some of you guys...

Consoles don't need "PC desktop" quantities of memory.

Consoles aren't running fully dedicated OS' like Windows, Mac OS X, Linux.

The PS4 and Nextbox could have went anywhere from 2-4 GB's of memory and it would still provide a massive leap.

Apparently, Sony went an extra step. GDDR5 is memory commonly found in graphics cards and not on motherboards.

That should be blazing fast regardless.

What PC game uses over 4 gigs ram? None as of yet. What makes you think just because the PS4 has 8 gigs that the devs are gonna use it for games? Look at what they did with just 512mb. The 8 gigs is for all the other apps that they will be running.

You've been in every thread making the most non sense points without backing it up whereas, I have. Stop posting if you don't know ####.
