More Teraflops than you can flop a tera at.
After talking up the processing power of the PlayStation 4 at last night’s glitzy reveal event, Sony has released the official system specs of their new console.
The information comes care of VG247, and is as follows:
“The Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) has been enhanced in a number of ways, principally to allow for easier use of the GPU for general purpose computing (GPGPU) such as physics simulation. The GPU contains a unified array of 18 compute units, which collectively generate 1.84 Teraflops of processing power that can freely be applied to graphics, simulation tasks, or some mixture of the two,” states an official release from Sony.
“PS4 is equipped with 8 GB of unified system memory, easing game creation and increasing the richness of content achievable on the platform. GDDR5 is used for this memory, giving the system 176 GB/second of bandwidth and providing a further boost to graphics performance.”
This new computational power will be used to run more background processes such as update downloads, streaming, video capture and more.
