    Sony Playstation Meeting 2013 about to begin [6PM ET]

    Join the livestream and see if the rumors of a semi-custom AMD APU featuring two Jaguar architecture modules (8 x86 cores) and a GCN architecture GPU with 8 ACE's each featuring 8 command lists is true!

    Here's the link -

    Sony confirmed last night that the new Playstation would be running x86 cores and an enhanced PC GPU, with 8GB of GDDR5 memory (shared between both CPU and GPU in an APU manner).

    Legacy game compatibility is maintained through GaiKai, Sony's purchase last year shortly after AFDS '12, which streams games straight from the cloud to your home device running a Java client.

    The PS Vita will be included in the Playstation 4 ecosystem as a second screen device for the Playstation.

      The PS4 system architecture is distinguished by its high performance
      and ease of development. PS4 is centered around a powerful custom chip
      that contains eight x86-64 cores and a state of the art graphics processor.
      The Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) has been enhanced in a number of ways,
      principally to allow for easier use of the GPU for general purpose computing
      (GPGPU) such as physics simulation. The GPU contains a unified array of 18
      compute units, which collectively generate 1.84 Teraflops of processing power that can freely be applied to graphics, simulation tasks, or some mixture of the two.

      PS4 is equipped with 8 GB of unified system memory, easing game creation and increasing the richness of content achievable on the platform.
      GDDR5 is used for this memory, giving the system 176 GB/second of bandwidth and providing a further boost to graphics performance.

      The end result for gamers is new games with rich, high-fidelity graphics and deeply immersive experiences that shatter expectations.
