PlayStation 4 Has X86 Processor, Enhanced GPU, 8 GB of RAM

The new device will run the Unreal Engine 4 technology

Marc Cerny, lead system architect on the PlayStation 4, reveals that the next-generation console from Sony will include an x86 processor, an enhanced graphics processing unit and 8 GB of RAM.

The hardware leader on the PlayStation 4 says that the console is actually an enhanced PC which is easier to develop for and can deliver increased performance for the player.

The PlayStation 4 has apparently been in development for the last five years and Sony has taken into account the requests of the development teams and the ideas that players have about the future.

The device seems capable of running the upcoming Unreal Engine 4 from Epic Games, with some processing handled directly by the GPU.

The memory will be GDDR5.

Cerny also revealed the game he is working on for the PlayStation 4, called Knack.
