Next-Gen console to feature custom Radeon HD 7670 and AMD quad core processor with integrated graphics chip
The technical specifications for Sony’s next generation console have been leaked, according to a report.
Sources have told IGN that the Playstation 4, codenamed Orbis, will feature custom chips based on the Radeon HD 7670 GPU and AMD’s A8-3850 APU.
The HD 7670 is a rebranded version of the HD 6670, reported to be integrated into Microsoft’s next Xbox console, meaning the next-gen systems could pack similar power.
The A8-3850 meanwhile features a quad-core 2.9ghz processor with an integrated graphics chip.
The sources said however that whilst current system specifications harness these chips, this could change before the system launches.
The report follows a similar story in February that Sony had ditched its currently flagship cell tech, used in the PS3, and would be using an AMD graphics processor for the PS4.
