PlayStation Orbis: potevano mancare le caratteristiche trafugate del lunedì?

Assolutamente no

NOTIZIA di Simone Tagliaferri   —   28/01/2013

Settimana nuova, caratteristiche di console next-gen trafugate nuove (o quasi). In effetti non è che le novità di questo nuovo elenco siano eclatanti rispetto ai rumor della settimana scorsa, ma fanno sempre colore. Vediamo quali mirabilie ci aspettano nella prossima console di Sony (poi qualcuno ci spiegherà a chi serve sapere certe informazioni, ma pare che sia sport mondiale scannarsi su ciò che si capisce poco).

Custom implementation of AMD Fusion APU Arquitecture (Accelerated Processing Unit)
Provides good performance with low power consumtion
Integrated CPU and GPU
Considerably bigger and more powerful than AMD's other APUs

Orbis contains eight Jaguar cores at 1.6 Ghz, arranged as two "clusters"
Each cluster contains 4 cores and a shared 2MB L2 cache
256-bit SIMD operations, 128-bit SIMD ALU
SSE up to SSE4, as well as Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX)
One hardware thread per core
Decodes, executes and retires at up to two intructions/cycle
Out of order execution
Per-core dedicated L1-I and L1-D cache (32Kb each)
Two pipes per core yield 12,8 GFlops performance
102.4 GFlops for system

GPU is based on AMD's "R10XX" (Southern Islands) architecture
DirectX 11.1+ feature set
Liverpool is an enhanced version of the architecture
18 Compute Units (CUs)

Partial constant angular velocity (PCAV)
Outer half of disc 6x (27 MB/s)
Inner half varies, 3.3x to 6x

- Internal mass storage
One SKU at launch: 500 GB HDD
There may also be a Flash drive SKU in the future

1 Gb/s Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WIFI, and Bluetooth

Evolved Dualshock controller
Dual Camera
