These last hours tweaks doesn't give much confidence in the console's reliability.

Not sure how this makes any sense. If they're boosting the specs obviously they're confident it won't blow up in their faces like the 360 did.

For someone not as knowledgeable:

A) Is this normal so close to release?

B) Would this increase risk of physical system failure?

Wow.

This is a nice boost.

Now it begs the question as to why Sony is not able to boost the performance either.

Interesting that Sony have yet to publish their speed rating - maybe leaving the door open...

I think Microsoft was aggressive enough on power savings, cooling and ventilation from the get go to potentially reap some late rewards, and this may just be the result of that.

For what? PS4 already has more power / the stronger hardware and better memory.
And the stronger GPU will take a lot of task away from the CPU in the future.

Isn't this thing supposed to be released in two months? Seems really strange that they're still messing around with the specs.
