[spong]PlayStation 4 to be "Very Affordable", But No Slouch

If the latest industry whispers are to be believed, development kits for the PlayStation 4 are currently being sent to game studios, ahead of a formal announcement at E3 2013.

Sony's next-generation console, codenamed Orbis, aims to spit out 1080p games in 3D at 60 frames per second with "no problem" at all. It will be powered by a combined CPU and GPU based on AMD's A10 APU series, and will contain a Blu-ray drive.

We've all heard these rumors of Sony's next console housing an AMD A10 chip, but AMD on Facebook posted this themselves and I believe this is a legitimate page because It shows all of the signs of being legitimate and has over 1 million likes.

They posted this with "The next generation of gaming platforms seem to have a common component… AMD."

If this is true, then lovely more R&D money for AMD. We can expect better hardware I hope.
i don't buy into a lot of these rumors but this seems legitimate, hopefully they'll throw in another GPU as well for extra capabilities such as GPGPU.

Sony and Nintendo have gone to AMD because It's a lot cheaper than IBM and Intel, and this is great for the console which had a hefty price tag.
I say we should expect this to be around 3-4x stronger than the current PS3 as posters such as "Lordikon" and some others have said, If I can find your name I'll put you in the thread also.

This hasn't been officially confirmed but AMD's seemingly legitimate Facebook page has said It themselves.

No those 4-8x estimates are for the APU only. Most underground rumors(which correctly forecast this rumor) say the PS3 will have a quad-core APU + dedicated GPU with ~ 2TFLOPS of compute or roughly a 7850. They put the Durango at the same power level but with more CPU for Kinect and other system services. Probably six threads. I figure a 20x faster than RSX/Xenos

No where near 20x faster then RSX/Xenos

Unlike everybody here I really don't want that generation of consoles to end (not that it was a good generation, probably the worst one IMO). Increased costs of development already forced out a lot of small devs/publishers this generation or made them turn to portable consoles only (especially small japanese developers) and made big publishers take even less risks that they used to, I can only imagine this trend is going to be even worse with this next generation.

with all these articles saying AMD hardware and whatnot, does that mean the gaming consoles of the next generation will be a fraction of the price they were last generation?
an a10 apu is like what 100 bucks? and the gpu maybe a lower end 6000 series?

they should come in under 400 easy right?

Bring out the next gen already. I am ready to see consoles get hd textures while PC versions get 4k textures.

The next Playstation should be a lot less than 599 US dollars at least. Blu-Ray has become extremely cheap since then. Wow, it's been over 6 years already? I still remember it being a really new thing.

Aparrently according to the article that they are supposed to be cheaper, the Cell was and Is nice but It was damn expensive, this APU should "batter" It around 3-8x, most likely 3.3x as I think Lordikon claimed.
Which is great, hopefully they'll have a 6670 in there too which will near double the GPU power of the APU it's self and then they'll be a ton of power to exploit. Just like the Cell I see the APU being exploited and many things being commonly experienced such as GPGPU on console, but also PC hardware.

We lot on this forum are not you average dumb followers, so don't try to BS us....

You're correct, you are worse. tongue.gif 4D: Length, Width, Depth and Time. Never heard the 1080p promise.
