"....We have confirmed with sources that recently leaked tech specs are accurate. Though Durango devkits offer 8GB of DDR3 RAM, compared to Orbis’s 4GB, Sony’s GDDR5 solution is capable of moving data at 176 gigabytes per second, which should eliminate the sort of bottlenecks that hampered PS3 game performance. Importantly, we’ve learned that Sony has told developers that it is pushing for the final PS4 RAM to match up to Microsoft’s 8GB...."



8GB DDR3 can't even come close to 4GB GDDR5.....let alone 8GB GDDR5

Next xbox is dead on arrival if this is true

Based on AMD site 512MB GDDR5 is far more powerful than 1GB DDR3

There's no way it will have 8GB GDDR5. That would be ridiculously expensive.

LOL this thread is killing me.

8GB ddr3 costs less than a new game, and ddr5 is primarily reserved for GPU's.

This topic is like watching a bunch of rednecks trying to eat at a nice restaurant.
