PlayStation 4 Dev Kit Details Emerge Thanks To FCC Documents
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Sony have done well to impress the tech world with their next-gen console, the real hard work for making the games is of course being done by the developers, but what we haven’t seen before are details of the hardware that game developers have been using to create their titles.
Now, thanks to the FCC it looks like we can have a look at that hardware, as documents from the FCC show some of the hardware specifications of the development kits used for creating PlayStation 3 games and services.
The documents show show a rack mountable design with plenty of cooling, Bluetooth, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi radios and more. Yet most interestingly of all is that is states “max clock frequency” of 2.75GHz but it doesn’t say what part of the hardware, hopefully some more information on that specification will emerge shortly.
A temprature of between 5 and 35 degrees celsius is also interesting and no doubt a result of the low power components and improved cooling of the hardware over the PS3 specifications.
You can pore over the fine deatails of the FCC database and the PlayStation 4 filing here.
