The theme of Xbox hardware specifications One and Playstation 4 is in the light of discussions with and reporting the most important thing. We therefore want to take a look at the hardware that obstruct Sony and Microsoft in their consoles, even if there is no final data. It can nevertheless draw some conclusions.
It is quite consistently reported that Microsoft like Sony put on a Jaguar CPU from AMD, which (with 1 MiByte L2 Cache 2x 4) has eight cores and will run in both cases at 1.8 GHz (according to other sources 2.0 on the PS4; 1.6 at the Xbox One). In addition, both manufacturers use a GPU from AMD based on the GCN architecture (Southern Islands and Sea Islands) to differ slightly. More on that later. The biggest technical difference is to be found in memory. Although both systems use eight GiByte RAM, but the Playstation 4 uses GDDR5 memory, while Microsoft only uses DDR3 memory, whose bandwidth is much lower. For compensation are 32 MiByte Esram available that can be directly addressed.
