The Sony PlayStation 4, or simply called the PS4, is an eighth generation home video game consoles that is developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. This console is the latest and newest addition to the PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3. Note that I used this hardware spec list from IGN.com to compare between the Xbox One and PS4.
It competes in the market against the Nintendo Wii U and Microsoft’s Xbox One. This gaming console has a more complex cell micro-architecture which was not there in the previous model and this device also features an AMD Accelerated Processing Unit – APU that is built on the architecture of x86-64 which peaks at 1.84 teraflops. According to AMU, this is the most powerful APU they have ever developed till now.
Moreover, the PlayStation 4 has a single chip custom processor and the main processor is the CPU :x86-64 AMD “Jaguar”, 8 cores. For the GPU it has 1.84 TFLOPS, AMD Radeon™ based graphics engine. The memory further makes it stronger by having around GDDR5 8GB and a storage size of 500GB, 1TB.
This PlayStation 4’s new features are more focused on social interaction and integration with other devices as well. In this device you can play the games off the consoles as well and stream the game play online. The controller of this console has also been upgraded since PlayStation 3 with better design and improved buttons and the analog stick with an integrated touchpad as well. This console also supports the playback of 4k media as well as HDR10 high-dynamic-range color.
This makes the PlayStation 4 features truly one of a kind and the processing power of PlayStation 4 extremely fast, efficient, and reliable. The game play on this console is fantastic with game resolutions ranging from 1080p to 1440p on an HD television. It is further equipped with features which make 4K gaming possible on this device as well, creating a truly enjoyable experience for the gamers.
