THE BUZZ: The PlayStation 4 will be equipped with a similar graphics card to the one rumored to be in the next Xbox, a new report claims.
IGN sources indicate that Sony’s next console will ultilize custom chips based on AMD’s A8-3850 APU and Radeon HD 7670 GPU, which can work together to give a power boost to the console.
The HD 7670 is DirectX 11 capable of running at 1GHz with 1GB of dedicated VRAM. It is practically identical to the HD 6670 which is rumored to be in the next-generation Xbox.
EGM’s TAKE: With both systems rumored to be running similar cards does this mean an end to the graphical arguments that plague this current generation, or will fanboys still claim that their console of choice looks better? In the current generation this does actually turn out to be occasionally true, due to poor optimization and the PlayStation 3 having slightly more raw power. If it comes down to an even playing field graphically who will win the next battle in the console wars?
