Here’s A Guided Tour Of The PlayStation 4 HardwareBy: Zach Walton - November 4, 2013
Since E3 2013, we’ve known what the PS4 hardware looks like. It’s a sleek, black design that looks more like the PS2 than the PS3, and fans have taken it to it rather well.
Now, we may know what it looks like, but we’ve only ever seen press shots or still video. In a new “sizzle trailer” from Sony, the console is shown off from pretty much every angle possible to give you a great look at the console, and all of its nooks and crannies.
Take a look:
As you can see, the video reminds us yet again that the PS4 is packing an 8-core AMD CPU and what it calls a “next-generation AMD Radeon” GPU. The company hasn’t elaborated on the specifics, and it probably never will. If you are interested in learning more about the PS4’s innards though, TechPowerUp reports that Sony’s Senior Vice President of Software, Dominic Mallinson, will be presenting at the AMD Developer Summit on November 13. His talk is titled, “Inside PlayStation 4: Building the Best Place to Play.” Considering that this year’s conference will be all about AMD’s APUs, you can expect to see some more detailed information about how Sony collaborated with AMD to build its customized Jaguar architecture.
If you want to know more about the PS4, Sony shared an exhaustive FAQ that covered almost every aspect of the new hardware.
The PS4 is still set to launch on November 15 in North America. It will launch November 29 in Europe and Australia. Japan will have to wait until February 22.[Image: GamersPrey]
