AMD has shed shed some new light on the PS4′s CPU, Jaguar. They’ve released this fancy chart at the top of this post with some more details on how the CPU stacks up, including another one of their CPUs for comparison.
Its unique that they say Jaguar has 4 cores when the PS4 will have 8-cores in its version of Jaguar. Maybe its a single modified CPU, maybe its two processors together.
The Jaguar processor is pretty impressive. I can’t wait to see how PS4 games look in a few years. If Killzone: Shadow Fall is any indication the combination of this CPU and the large amount of DDR5 RAM will make for some visually impressive software.
It will be interesting to see what changes Microsoft makes to AMD’s Jaguar in their next-gen Xbox. Rumors have been rampant for months now that Microsoft will be using the AMD Jaguar in addition to Sony’s Playstation 4. Would they opt for only the quad-core version? Is Sony packing two of these things into their console or getting a special version?
What do you think of Sony packing the PS4 with top-notch hardware that is easy to develop for? Leave us a comment below with your thoughts!
