The PlayStation 4 will feature an AMD-built, 8-core 64-bit x86-based "Jaguar" CPU, with a Radeon GPU including 18 "compute units" which are capable of pumping out 1.84 FLOPS in graphics performance and more. Backing that up, we definitely have a Blu-ray drive, and 8GB of insanely fast GDDR5 RAM which pumps up to 176GB/sec of bandwidth.

 

Connectivity wise, we have 802.11n Wi-Fi, USB 3.0, Bluetooth 2.1, HDMI, optical out and Sony have even sprung for analog AV out. How's dem Apple's?
