Several development studios have with the magazine VG247.com talked about a new Dev Kit for the upcoming Playstation. The teams have the hardware that will be in a normal PC case, get the Sony. In January, the teams according to Sony get a newer version, which is almost finished, and in the summer of 2013, the final version.
Now delivered in the developer’s supposed to work the A10 Series AMD – on the APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) are combined CPU and GPU. Supposedly, it is a derivative of various A10S that are currently having with clock speeds from 3.2 to 4.2 GHz. When the amount of memory will be set and the developer does not speak of either 8 or 16 GB of RAM. Supposedly the next Playstation has a Blu-ray drive and a hard drive – either conventional design or as SSD – with 256 GB of storage capacity.
To have as many x86 cores of the A10 on the PS4 and whether it is AMD’s current architecture Trinity with Piledriver cores and Radeon graphics are is not clear from the sources. It’s probably because the AMD Trinity both in desktop and notebook versions for months manufactures in large quantities.The model number A10 also points out that the Sony version of the APU has four integer cores.
The hardware specifications match the previous evidence on the next console from Sony. Also called the A10 sounds plausible – he is both powerful and inexpensive and accessible to programmers. Sony is said to have the developers also said that would give more consideration than the Playstation 3 at a competitive price from the beginning.
The other equipment in terms of Wi-Fi and HDMI follows the well-established standards. Re supposed to be the user interface. It should be possible, in the game to get a button in the menu and there really to do anything – even about to buy an expansion for the game currently running in the background.Evidence for a New controllers are not yet available.
The developers also say that Sony’s new console, currently called Orbis and the “4” in principle avoids. Whether Orbis is the final name is unclear. The number “4” is likely, however, does not actually appear in the finished product because it is open in parts of Asia very negatively. Sony has not yet officially commented on the successor to the PlayStation 3. It is expected that the company will present its new console in the E3, which takes place in mid-June 2013 in Los Angeles.
