CPU. - x64 Architecture - 8 CPU cores running at 1.6 gigahertz (GHz) - each CPU thread has its own 32 KB L1 instruction cache and 32 KB L1 data cache - each module of four CPU cores has a 2 MB L2 cache resulting in a total of 4 MB of L2 cache - each core has one fully independent hardware thread with no shared execution resources - each hardware thread can issue two instructions per clock GPU. - custom D3D11.1 class 800-MHz graphics processor - 12 shader cores providing a total of 768 threads - each thread can perform one scalar multiplication and addition operation (MADD) per clock cycle - at peak performance, the GPU can effectively issue 1.2 trillion floating-point operations per second High-fidelity Natural User Interface (NUI) sensor is always present Storage and Memory: - 8 gigabyte (GB) of RAM DDR3 (68 GB/s) - 32 MB of fast embedded SRAM (ESRAM) (102 GB/s) http://www.vgleaks.com/world-exclusive-durango-unveiled/ Interesting info..

8 Gigs of ram. Hmmm. Sounds good.

Not good enough, I want more power.
#4 Posted by tormentos (20047 posts) -
Apparently and like it was rumored it can push 1.2 TF,but the bandwidth is higher thanks to the 32MB ESRAM,giving it 176GB/S bandwidth,much better than DDR3 alone,now that would be a strength vs the PS4 in games like Skyrim and other very large open world games,is not as fast as the PS4 one but is close..

You really want the 720 to have these specs dont you?
#7 Posted by Truth_Hurts_U (9447 posts) -

I don't know why these rumors keep saying an 8 core CPU @ 1.6 GHz... That is just horrible. That's laptop grade.

If it was more like 2.8 GHz it would be far more believable.

You dont know the ps4's specs..

It's about half the GPU.

And funny enough, I just read about a 768 shader AMD GPU

Even if they got every single detail completely right, until MS says so and shows us their next console all these rumours are exactly that...just rumours.

Having said that, if those were the specs (or close to the real thing) I don't think anyone would be disappointed to be honest. Seems pretty good IMO.

I'd be disappointed.

They just need to stick 3 7970s in there with 24GB of ram.

Ditto... Those specs are not impressive.

#17 Posted by Kaszilla (1841 posts) -
So if these specs were true, how would they be impressive or disappointing compared to high end or mid range PCs?
#18 Posted by Martin_G_N (1735 posts) -

OMG.....68GB/s?? Just twice the memory speed of the X360?? That's not fast enough to utilize the GPU. GPU's today use DDR5, and they get atleast around 192GB/s. The Nvidia Geforce 690 can do 384GB/s. This console will struggle in performance if this is true.

Should be able to handle MS's direction

well yeah after a whole generation of the PS3 supposedly being far more powerful than the 360 and then not really proving it, cows are desperate for the PS4 to be obviously more powerful on paper and graphically, regardless of whether it costs twice as much and wipes any remaining value off Sonys stock. TBH i think it would be better for SW sake, we'll probably have a couple months of cows declaring the PS4 is "twice as powerful" as the next Xbox before people get it out of their system, though thats better than another generation of arguing over minute (and in most cases fictional) graphical differences.

Truth_Hurts_U
Clock speed means nothing.. A CPU with 1.6 clock speed can be more efficient that one that is clocked at 2.8,i am sure this CPU is way more effective than the Xenon which is 3 cores 6 threads at 3.2 GHZ.

I love how the Obris's specs are almost the exact same as the Durango's specs. The two consoles are going to be as close as the Xbox 360 and PS3 are in terms of power. This means both Microsoft and Sony are going to have to do other things to make their console stand apart.

I like that. I hate there being huge gaps in power between consoles. Makes it more difficult on developers.

Not even close.

Yet, wait for the endless battles here where people claim one is far superior than the other because certain devs get certain results out of them.

But yeah having them very close is cool, we might finally see them try to innovate a bit more instead of pushing visuals first

In teraflops performance is basically a 7770GHZ edition Cape verde which hit the spot at 1.28 TF,but the clock,but this one is clocked at 800mhz,so it should be based on a newer model that is down clock so it end with 1.2TF like the 7770. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7770-7750-benchmark,3135.html

You're always disappointed though :P Seriously though, consoles wont ever reach PC's at this point (the jump in tech in the past gen was just too damn enormous) but compared to previous entries (PS3/Xbox 360) these seem like pretty good "jumps".

Yes they could but sony and MS are tire of losses is understandable. The fact is that this leaks all fit perfectly with MS leaks,5 to 6 times the performance of the 360,while sony was aiming for 8 to 10.. The 360 is a 200+ GF the 720 1,200+ Gflops basically 6 times better..

There is a lot of stuff they could do with their online networks and operating systems that would be great.

I would love to see the consoles have a more open online structure to allow patches and updates far more quickly and frequently. This would open up F2P games to the consoles and open up a whole new level of gaming for console gamers.

Imagine the PS4 launching with a PS4 specific versionof Planetside 2 on launch. All you would need to do is buy a PS4 and you can play Planetside 2 for free, just like if you had a PC. Think of how amazing that would be and the potential for other F2P games.

They should also focus more on DD, force publishers to start pricing their games more competitively rather than just pricing at $60 constantly. DD + F2P = cheaper quality gaming = win/win for all gamers.

Do you honestly expect that to happen though? Way it seems to be going is opposite to that and they're closing and clamping down the systems more.

I think that could happen. SoE is leading the charge with F2P gaming and it's paying off for them. Sony would be crazy not to follow with the PS4.

I don't know about Microsoft. It seems they are dead set on charging for XBL.

#44 Posted by Gue1 (11267 posts) -

the GPU has 12 cores with 768 threads. Is that the same as a stream processor or pipelines? I always thought when the specs of a GPU said it had like 800 stream processors that they were actual physical cores... No?

#45 Posted by burgeg (3599 posts) -

I don't understand what any of this means. This is why all these rumours annoy me. I don't understand a word of them. I seriously can't wait for the consoles to be unveiled, and actually show me what the consoles can do.

I care little about the spec sheet of consoles and can barely understand them.I'm not expecting the next gen xbox and PS systems to be an OMG leap over the 360 and PS3 anyway because of factors like heat.

You can't Use Gflops or TFlops to determine how powerful a console is.The 720 could be more then 6X stronger then the 360.
