However, the next Xbox has double the RAM...
According to VG247, Sony's PlayStation 4 has a 50% raw power advantage over Microsoft's Xbox 720, based on information out of CES...
According to developer sources speaking to VG247 -after meetings at the CES in Las Vegas last week- PlayStation 4 will have a run-capability of 1.84 teraflops and the next Xbox a run-capability of 1.23 teraflops.
If true, these numbers mean PlayStation 4 will have a 50% RAW computational power advantage over the Xbox 720.
But, there's a twist: Microsoft's Xbox 720 apparently has 8GB of RAM whereas Sony's PS4 has just 4GB.
Here are a few more details:
Now, as always, keep in mind that all the above are just rumors.Our source said that 3Gb is reserved for the OS, apps and security, leaving 4-5Gb for games.
Orbis will have 4Gb of RAM, said our source, of which 1Gb will be reserved for for OS, security and apps, leaving some 3Gb for games.
Both machines will supposedly have have the ability to read 100Gb Blu-ray discs.
Durango is apparently based on the Radeon HD 8770 GPU.
PlayStation 4 has been previously rumoured to be built on AMD’s A10 APU.
As you may know, it was also recently claimed that the two machines are to be announced in late March.
VG247 also mentioned that several media outlets are now in possession of documents related to Durango from CES and are currently working on major leak stories...
