PS4 is quite the engineering marvel

This could be a very useful thread, but waaaay too many people decided to make it a battleground and fill it with bs attacks.

 

 

Id prefer an official thread that is dedicated to just the tech specs and maybe sharing articles that discuss the tech.  This thread became a joke.

I got back to my desk and did a bit of digging. It seems that article is very misleading.

The PS4 is not running a version of DirectX, to be honest, it would be harder & take longer to integrate that into a Unix based system. But rather an extended subset of instruction sets which are based around DirectX. For example, what they've made supports tessellation which is only a running feature in DirectX, It gets very techy around this.

Only Xbox One and Windows 8.1 use direct x 11.1... http://www.bit-tech.net/news/gaming/2013/06/28/directx-11-2/

But the article title says 11.2 is confirmed for 8.1/X1...?

You are correct.. Thank you for pointing this out...

Its small, looks good, well done sony. But I'm not going to put a console up for display and have plenty of room in my tv unit so its not really a big factor for me.

No power brick is good though cause its less things to tuck away but not really that important either. Sony has been building hardware since 1946, it changed its name to Sony 1958 they made Japans first tape recorder and are in the top 100 of the Fortune Global 500.. Basically they are a powerhouse and have been building hardware almost 30 years before Microsoft was born so its easy to say they have an edge when it comes to hardware... But hardware isn't everything.. (Ask Apple)
