If the following rumors are to be true, it appears that the PS4 will apparently be tremendously more powerful than Microsoft's Xbox 720. According to a post made today by VG247, developers at CES have revealed that the next generation system from Sony, which is expected to be the PS4, will have the ability to run at 1.84 teraflops. In comparison, it has been stated that the Xbox 720 will only be able to hit at a total of 1.23 teraflops.
If this information leads to be true, the PS4 will have a major advantage in the power department, as it will be able to run 50% over what the Xbox 720 is capable of. In addition to this information, VG247 also proceeds onto the implementation of RAM within these systems. It is stated that the Xbox 720 will be supplied with a total of 8 GB of RAM, while the PS4 the only have a total of 4 GB of RAM.
While PS4 will have greater grunt that 720, however, the Microsoft machine has significantly more RAM at 8Gb, we’ve been told. 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.
