Yes, it's a chip derived from the A10 base according to the article. Same architecture and 'glue' between components, but the configuration won't necessarily mirror the A10s in the PC space.

The 18 compute units of the prior rumour certainly sounds more reasonable. Hopefully!

Sound interesting indeed.

I wonder how much they will focus on fluidity and streamlining the experience instead of creating a hardcore mofo only console with dude-bro styling and such.

However I think they will have a slight difficult time creating something distinctive enough to draw attention from both Wii U and Nextbox.

And finally 1080p 60fps 3D will draw quite much powah from that machine

Quite interesting. I'll remain hopeful that they do create a nice powerhouse, but at the moment I believe I'll go PC and Wii U. From a business perspective it will be interesting to see how their financials can hold up if they need to got for the big $599 again. Could be devastating after the Vita. Interesting times ahead that's for sure.

Oh wait, sorry. I think in the article they meant 'not being designed' in Japan. 'Not being manufactured' in Japan would hardly be noteworthy since things have been made in China for yonks.

It's likely going to have a downsized pictairn or something put into it. The APU base doesn't mean all that much, it's just how it'll be produced. An APU setup will save costs, lowers heat and allows the CPU and GPU to work together better. A10 is highly customizable so it could have a lot of variations of CPUs and GPUs in it. Still, the fact that the RAM number got jacked up that much from previous rumors gives me a lot of hope for other components. I haven't heard any rumors that say it's going to have a weak GPU like the 7660D.

Probably not. There have been sales on SSD's approaching 50 cents per GB. And that's at retail. By the time this ships next year (or 2014), SSD's should be in the ball park of 25 cents per GB at retail. Sony buying bulk at whole sale would probably get them at an even lower price.

If devkits have double the ram then we'll see 4-8GB, which is still impressive.

On top of that, in a customized version of the A10, Sony/AMD could remove the bits of silicon that are redundant between the CPU and GPU, along with tons of x86 stuff that is completely unnecessary for a gaming console. Freeing up silicon for other, more important things.

It'll probably be 30, like most games. If we can get the Watch_Dogs footage we've seen in 1080p @ 30 fps fairly early in next-gen cycle I will be very happy because 1) The game looks incredible and is a true leap, and 2) With it releasing in the 1st year of next-gen it bodes very well for the years ahead.

He said "standard size" though, which is confusing. 32GB is by no means standard.. I mean.. we have rumored 16g flash in these things for the OS, but 256 isn't standard either.

From the given specs it sounds as though a lack of a dedicated GPU would be a waste, but adding a GPU alongside an SSD and a "considerable" amount of memory isn't exactly conducive to creating an affordable machine.

I don't see much point in going with an APU in the final machine if you're going to have a discrete GPU.

If the final target is an APU, an A10 in the current kit makes sense since it's the best APU available right now. A discrete GPU in the kit might make sense to better approximate performance of a final APU with greater GPU resources than an A10, but otherwise I wouldn't expect to be hearing about discrete GPUs.

Wonder if its paired with a descrete gpu? Or maybe its good enough for 1080p60fps because devs can really code to the metal.

This means publishers can just use the PC/XBOX code with a simple UI change for emulating this gen muliplatform titles, which is probably a good thing. lol

Good for you. I have a massive PS2 library and used to play them on my 60 GB launch PS3 until it died on me.

And this is why a custom firmware is interesting. Forced backward compatibilty.

unfortunately that will not be the case, they would have to at-least re-write the renderer and network code to use sony's libraries.

but yes it would be much easier than it would be to the ps3
