that's what they did with the xbox 360 if i remember correctly from what I read in the past.

Yeah at a guess I would say it will probably be a trinity based architecture, if not just outright trinity. The whole package will need to fit something close to a 95 watt tdp.

Seems like the simplest move for sony. Developing for a sony console like this would be easy, and developer would hit the ground running.

I wonder if they'll put an APU in it?

If you look at the Bulldozer architecture, it does have some really creepy high level similarities to Cell, doesn’t it?

I guess that I was not the only one thinking this.
If they stuck some GCN units in there instead of the floating point logic it might make a pretty powerful chip.
Not that I actually know anything about the engineering of integrated circuits.

So next gen consoles are truly weaker PCs now?

Yeah, I don't think I would want BD in a PS4. It uses way too much power.

I would think for a CPU, they will want something with much less power draw. I am far from being qualified to dictate or speculate what they SHOULD do, but I have to imagine they would want to keep power draw below that of the power hungry PS3's.

I would have to imagine something along the lines of the rumored A10 Trinity APU? Based on the rumors that I have read (I know I know) that is where I would imagine this headed. Maybe a six core version if they are making one?

Bah! I would rather see an IB quad and a 560 ti (or higher) and raise the FPS from 30 to at least 45 on the console. Oh well....

I doubt it. The console they release will need enough graphics horsepower to last 6-8 years, that means they'll probably need something more powerful than an APU can handle. However, as process shrinks occur during the 6-8 year lifespan of that console generation it will likely be able to become an APU eventually. This is more of less how the Xbox 360 went over its multiple iterations.
