AMD confirms PS4 chip rumours

Written by Nick Farrell



Yeah we will release a consumer version

AMD executive John Taylor has announced that his outfit will be creating a modified version of the custom chip that it had designed for Sony's PS4.

The chip will be quite similar to Playstation 4 console chip but will not be as powerful. Taylor said the PS4 chip was the strongest APU made by AMD so far. It contains 8 x86-64 CPU cores. Moreover, the chip is capable of providing 1.84 teraflops of power and is based on the Radeon graphics engine.

He said that the PlayStation 4's home run specification of having 8GB of unified GDDR5 RAM will suffer from extensive alterations in order to play nice with standard motherboards.
