Ps4

In just a few minutes, we should get to see Sony reveal not one, but two PlayStation 4 systems. The first is the PlayStation 4 slim, which is already out in the wild if you know where to look. The other, more interesting systems is the PlayStation 4, currently dubbed the Neo.

The system was originally uncovered by two separate branches of Kotaku after this year’s GDC in March. Later, specifications of the proposed, upgraded system emerged – showing that the system was getting a significant boost. But is it significant enough to drive 4K console gaming? Probably not. Not really. According to those specs, this is what you can expect from the PlayStation 4 Neo:

Base PS4 PS4K Neo Boost
CPU Eight Jaguar cores clocked at 1.6GHz Eight Jaguar cores clocked at 2.1GHz 1.3x
GPU 18 Radeon GCN compute units at 800MHz 36 ‘improved’ GCN compute units at 911MHz 2.3x FLOPs
Memory 8GB GDDR5 at 176GB/s 8GB GDDR5 at 218GB/s 24% more bandwidth, 512MB more useable memory

Will those specs be set in stone? Let’s take a look:

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
