PlayStation 4 rumors point to AMD Fusion, Radeon 7900

Console now said to integrate 3.2GHz processor

Sony made no mention of its next-generation PlayStation console this week at E3, however recent rumors outline a fresh list of hardware specs. Unnamed sources have told Dutch gaming site PSX-Sense the fourth-generation PlayStation, referred to by the code-name "Orbis," will integrate a new quad-core 3.2GHz AMD Fusion APU, which has been referred to by the monicker "Liverpool."

Recent rumors pointed to AMD's quad-core 2.9GHz A8-3850 APU as the likely suitor, however the source admitted that such specs were subject to changes as the company continues its long-running development cycle.

Sources of the latest rumor also suggest the console may ship with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of flash memory, a 320GB hard drive, and Blu-ray support. On the graphics end, the previous reports of a Radeon HD 7670 GPU have been replaced by talk of a Radeon HD 7900-series graphics processor, code-named "Tahiti," that is said to be capable of over 1800 GFLOPS at 800 MHz.

Considering the anticipated launch window for the next PlayStation is expected for the holidays 2013, or potentially into 2014, the latest specs may also be preliminary. Sony took time to focus on PS3 and Vita titles at E3, along with the Wonderbook augmented-reality accessory that works alongside the company's Move controller. [via Forbes]
