Purported Playstation 4 Specs Leaked

Pay attention people. The image above is from a leaked document claiming to be the actual specs from Sony’s next gen console. If this thing doesn’t turn out to be a fabrication, then we’re looking at a very powerful machine. 20 gigs of RAM, a 32 Ghz cell processor, total backwards compatibility going back to PS1. But it gets weirder. The PS4 supposedly supports DUALSHOCK 3 and 4 controllers, Playstation Iris, Playstation Vita, Sony tablet devices, Move, even a keyboard and mouse. That is hard core. Or extremely silly.

Honestly, I’m inclined to say that Gameranx is right; this is too good to be true. And if it isn’t? Imagine how expensive this is going to be. We’d best remain skeptical of this until it’s confirmed explicitly by Sony.

A bigger, more readable version can be seen here.

Seems a bit silly. and so I wouldn’t believe it for a second.

But hey, Sony listened to devs with the Vita and if they finally listened to the devs with PS4, then something more powerful than the norm for next gen could well be true – just don’t hold your breath.

Precisely my thinking.

20 gigs of RAM?
Most games today dont go over 4 gigs. (including what the OS is using)

Some forget the KEYWORDS ”future proof” i think these could be real specs 10-15 yrs from now pcs could have well over 20gigs of mem by then.

I’m going to call Bull on this one. It’s too good to be true. If true this thing has dual Kepler in it, which is at minimum like using 2 GTX670′s in SLI, which is approaching $800+ in GPU alone.

Granted, Sony would have them special built and won’t be paying that price but it’s too good to be true.

Completely and utterly fake

that spec sheet says 3.2 ghz, not 32 ghz… This could actually be somewhat legit. RAM is really cheap these days. You can get 16 gigs now for around 100 bucks, which is just crazy. If I recall, the GK104 was the GTX 680, which retails currently for 500. Keep in mind that the GTX 680 was intended to be a mid-ranged GPU, but they jacked up the price to what they would charge for a high end card because it was so fast. I remember being amazed that the PS3 was based on the GeForce 7800 series, which was really expensive at the time (similarly to the GTX 680 today). When all is said and done, I’m going to guess that the system would retail for 600-700 if it really does launch at the end of next year.

Fake and

Sony doesn’t even know how to harness the full potential of the PS3 and they are making a PS4.

I call shenanigans! This sounds like the “leaked” Xbox specs that also conveniently had an absurd processor that would break the bank on even an extreme end PC. Every part of this “leak” screams fake…

-More ram than most $1500 PCs
-5 to 7 times the processing of a high-end PC (again, over $1500 here)
-backwards compatibility (they have little reason to add this if they get a decent launch line-up, and it would require lots of software switcharoos to work, which costs money to write and test)
-backwards controller/peripheral compatibility (the Wii is the only console to use the last-gen controllers as far as I know, and that was tacked on for backwards compatibility)

The keyboard is the only part I really believe!

@Keese Actually, the version of the chip that went into the PS3 was a weaker version of the one found on the G70 found on the 7800-series of cards. And by the time the systems were being manufactured, the prices on for the 7800 cards had gone down. In fact, the refresh of that chip line was already out. Combine that with the fact the spec sheet calls for dual cards, and it’s quite easy to see how laughable this rumor is.

I for one am more inclined to believe the earlier rumors that stated the PS4 is using an AMD powered Radeon HD 7670 GPU because before that there were rumors in the hardware scene that stated AMD scored the deal to produce the GPU for their next-gen console. If this rumor proves to be true, we are looking at hardware that is already obsolete, evidently supported by Cliffy B’s recent comments expressing a desire for both Microsoft and Sony to bump up the specs of their next-gen hardware.
