Sony PS4 Console in Development, AMD Building Graphics Tech?


Sponsored Links
149w ago - A few months back Sony stated that PlayStation 4 is expected to arrive with rival next-generation consoles, and today [Register or Login to view links] reports that PS4 is in development with AMD rumored to be building the system's graphics technology.

To quote: "Sony is working on an as-yet-unannounced new gaming console, former AMD employees say, and the processor designer may play a key role in the new product.

AMD's graphics technology is already used in Microsoft's XBox 360 console. However, Sony's PlayStation 3 - introduced in 2006 - relies on graphics technology from Nvidia.

AMD declined to comment on the project. Sony Chief Transformation Officer George Bailey also declined to discuss Sony's new console, or even acknowledge its existence.

However, at AMD's analyst day last month, AMD Chief Financial Officer Thomas Seifert identified gaming as one of several trends that will drive revenue growth at AMD in 2012."

What benchmark shows a 6670 getting over 30fps in Metro 2033 at 1080p? That sounds really off. Maybe with all settings turn to the lowest and in DX 9 mode... even then it still seems unlikely. Well I just looked it up, apparently under medium settings it averaged 32fps according to one benchmark. Unfortunately that still means under maxed settings it wouldn't even pull 10fps.

Honestly the entire thing is a massive disappointment to me but the 1GB video memory blew me away, that means we won't even be getting good resolution textures.

What you read is the VRAM, the "RAM-Memory" of the GPU, not the main memory.

Any good lower priced games in development? Hopefully these PS4 games will be 16% - 17% less. $120 for two games just seems a bit... and tax doesn't help at all LOL

AMD APU's are kinda powerfull in comparison to theire price (built in CPU) and other on-board graphics. I'm a bit worried about the CPU they use, a normal Llano Quad-Core Desktop-CPU, which you can get at the moment for $129 (normal customer price) should be the CPU for an Next-Gen-Console which arrives in 2013 ? They can't be serious.
I would like to know which kind (XDR or DDR) and how much RAM they put in these - kinda oldschool compared to my PC - console.
