Like, according to the leak the PS4 has 18 AMD GCN CUs on GPU and the Neo has 36. Clock speed goes from 800 to 911. What if they literally added another GPU(think crossfire) and bumped the clocks. That could account for the weight. Nah, that'd be crazy right?
Has this guy told you this?
I'll be really surprised if there is no subtitle or simple letter/symbol (PS4+, PS4S for e.g.)
They still want the machine to be easy to program, multi-chip solution wouldn't fit the ideology.Like, according to the leak the PS4 has 18 AMD GCN CUs on GPU and the Neo has 36.

My 20gb PS3 was really silent, got worse with age and during summer heat, but even at its worst it wasn't as bad as my launch PS4.
Not really. If it's $450+, I'd rather go for a PC at a slightly higher price. Could used the change I love Playstation though, and I'll definitely buy another one at some point, but I can't simply afford a PC and a PS4 at the same time. I'll probably buy a slim sometime next year.
It's from the same post he wrote, I just left those out, didn't think it's important.
Maybe Sony want to assure Neo is just a PS4 revision by calling it PS4.
A metallic case could add to weight yes. But 5TF is fairly easy to do on the Polaris chip the Neo is using by increasing the power state and thus the clock. The full 6TF of the chip is probably not though.I doubt that right now (not completely ruling it out, though). There have been hints here at GAF that there is something under the hood we don't know about but it isn't clear if that relates to the main specs, APU/RAM or is something else.
I do wonder what could add so much weight though, if true. Going from 2.8KG to 4.5KG is a lot. Made of premium aluminium!?
I have 2 ideas. First he said that was second hand information so chances are it's at a different building and he hasn't seen it and the people that work there won't say more.You know what most interesting? As reckless as the Foxconn artist with Neo and slim drawing, he don't dare to leak any more info of that portable thing.
woah, wait... 4500g? If that is accurate this thing is almost double the weight of OG PS4. What the hell is in this thing? My only guess is the PSU needed to be more beefy if they're upgrading the GPU thus larger and heavier.
