LIVERPOOL SOC

Custom implementation of AMD Fusion APU Arquitecture (Accelerated Processing Unit)
Provides good performance with low power consumtion
Integrated CPU and GPU
Considerably bigger and more powerful than AMD’s other APUs

PU:

Orbis contains eight Jaguar cores at 1.6 Ghz, arranged as two “clusters”
Each cluster contains 4 cores and a shared 2MB L2 cache
256-bit SIMD operations, 128-bit SIMD ALU
SSE up to SSE4, as well as Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX)
One hardware thread per core
Decodes, executes and retires at up to two intructions/cycle
Out of order execution
Per-core dedicated L1-I and L1-D cache (32Kb each)
Two pipes per core yield 12,8 GFlops performance
102.4 GFlops for system



GPU:

GPU is based on AMD’s “R10XX” (Southern Islands) architecture
DirectX 11.1+ feature set
Liverpool is an enhanced version of the architecture
18 Compute Units (CUs)
Hardware balanced at 14 CUs
Shared 512 KB of read/write L2 cache
800 Mhz
1.843 Tflops, 922 GigaOps/s
Dual shader engines
18 texture units
8 Render backends

UPDATE: some people is confused about the GPU, here you have more info about it:

Each CU contains dedicated:

- ALU (32 64-bit operations per cycle)

- Texture Unit

- L1 data cache

- Local data share (LDS)

About 14 + 4 balance:

- 4 additional CUs (410 Gflops) “extra” ALU as resource for compute

- Minor boost if used for rendering

Dual Shader Engines:

- 1.6 billion triangles/s, 1.6 billion vertices/s

18 Texture units

- 56 billion bilinear texture reads/s

- Can utilize full memory bandwith

8 Render backends:

- 32 color ops/cycle

- 128 depth ops/cycle

- Can utilize full memory bandwith



Memory:

4 GB unified system memory, 176 GB/s
3.5 available to games (estimate)



Storage:

- High speed Blu-ray drive

single layer (25 GB) or dual layer (50 GB) discs
Partial constant angular velocity (PCAV)
Outer half of disc 6x (27 MB/s)
Inner half varies, 3.3x to 6x



- Internal mass storage

One SKU at launch: 500 GB HDD
There may also be a Flash drive SKU in the future



Networking:

1 Gb/s Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WIFI, and Bluetooth



Peripherals:

Evolved Dualshock controller
Dual Camera
Move controller



Extra:

Audio Processor (ACP)
Video encode and decode (VCE/UVD) units
Display ScanOut Engine (DCE)
Zlib Decompression Hardware

That's nice. Now where is my The Last Guardian Sony ?

Damn, I bought a PS3 for this game. >:

read the hundred page threads that already assumed these exact specs, right down to memory bandwidth.



probably the best you can expect from a profitable console under $400 in 2013.
Tongue in cheek.

I've been aware of the specs for some time now.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

This doesn't sound cheap and the TF value is way more higher than the rumored Durango specs, didn't expect the Ps4 GPU to be more powerful.

So is this really good?

Looks nice, yeah. Many would say it's a more powerful, sensible design than Durango. Unlike the PS3, it doesn't seem to contain anything that's either crazy expensive (Blu-ray drive when PS3 was new) or exotic and hard to work with. (Cell, XDR DRAM to an extent)

"Evolved" DualShock? I was kinda hoping for something new, DualShock is way too old.

Is it supposed to ship with the dual camera and Move though?

Isn't this pretty much what we already knew? Or is this new info? Better not be linkbait.

Can someone explain this in English? I can't really follow the specs in the OP since I'm not fluent in tech. How does it compare to current consoles/PCs?

Wow that's amazing! I think. I don't actually know what those numbers mean...oh well, as long as it means cool new games.
