Sony Computer Entertainment, the publisher of the upcoming “The Order 1886” and other video games, has made a comparison between the clock speed of the PS4 and PS2. According to a report from Kotaku on March 9, the U.K. branch of the company revealed that the next-generation has a CPU that is approximately the equivalent of 43 PS2 units put together.

Although Sony Computer Entertainment has not yet formally revealed the clock speed of the PS4, the comparison suggested that the new console comes equipped with a 1.6 GHz CPU. However, the clock speed does not mean everything for a gaming console in terms of graphics. The PS3, for example, included a 3.2 GHz CPU.

The PS4 also comes with a powerful GPU along with 8 GB of GDDR5 system RAM. As a result, games that rely heavily on visuals, such as the forthcoming “The Order 1886,” can only be made on the next-generation system as opposed to the PS2 and PS3.

The new intellectual property is being developed at Ready at Dawn with SCE Santa Monica Studios helping out on the project. Sony Computer Entertainment is targeting a fall release date time frame for the third-person shooting title.
