PlayStation 4 released
15th November 2013
Moving away from the more complex Cell architecture of its predecessor, the PlayStation 4 featured a more familiar AMD x86-64 Accelerated Processing Unit, in hopes of attracting a broader range of developers and support for the system. The PlayStation 4's GPU could perform 1.843 teraflops, making it, at the time, the world’s most powerful games console.
The PlayStation 4 used a processor developed by AMD in cooperation with Sony. It combined a central processing unit (CPU) and graphics processing unit (GPU), as well as other components such as a memory controller and video decoder.The CPU consisted of two quad-core Jaguar modules totaling 8 x86-64 cores.
