PS4 tech specs leaked?
The PS4 developer kit technical specifications have been allegedly revealed online in documentation sent to videogames website Kotaku
Just days after tech specs for the next-gen Xbox console appeared online, it seems that PlayStation fans are able to get a taster of what to expect from Sony's next console. Videogames website Kotaku have published a story containing information they claim from official Orbis documentation about specs for the next-generation PlayStation.
The gaming site claims the files were shared with the site with SuperDae, an individual who attempted to sell next-gen Xbox dev kits on eBay last year, and who posted images online that appeared to show Kinect 2's ability to map clothes and fingers on his twitterfeed.
The documentation reveals the tech specs of the PS4 dev kits as follows:
System Memory: 8GB
Video Memory: 2.2GB
CPU: 4x Dual-Core AMD64 "Bulldozer" (so. 8x cores)
GPU: AMD R10xx
Ports: 4x USB 3.0 2X Ethernet
HDD: 160 GB
Audio Output: HDMI & Optical, 2.0, 5.1 & 7.1 channels
Alongside the machine's specifications, Kotaku says that the documentation shows that there is a new controller for the console called the Orbis Development Tool, which maintains many of the features of the DualShock controller, except with a key difference: a touchpad. This touch-surrface interface recognises two point multi-touch and clicked for an additional input interface.
Kotaku says that Sony's next-gen console will also support "multi-simultaneous logins", which will allow multiple users to sign into accounts on a single console at the same time.
