    These guys should go work for Sony or Microsoft. To change their minds about the processors for their consoles.

    The reason Sony and MS use APUs from AMD is that they are cost effective, powerful, and dont consume much energy.

    Pretty sure that a dedicated system that does nothing but play games vs a full blown PC are two very different things. Also the PS4 will have a desktop grade Video Card in it and 8gb of ddr5 ram.

    That was very confusing on Sony's part, I am not sure if it is 8GB of GDDR5 onboard or of VRAM. I think they may just use GDDR5 instead of DDR3 because they want to future proof it.

    Yeah its 8gb ddr5 but the video cad can use that ram along with the system I believe
