Glad to hear that Github leak finally get put to rest. It should’ve been obvious it was fake, but so many ran with it for the longest time. Now Sony just needs to come and give us V a few more specifics about this new beast of a console.

Fake seems like the wrong word. More like it featured outdated info or partial only.

Pretty amazing. Looks like this is the first time in history consoles will launch that aren't dated as soon as they hit the market. Will be interesting to see what the minimum pc requirements will be for the next gen multiplatform games.



I'm excited ! The best games will blow us away. PS5 and XBox Series X on Day One.

Hmm... I really don't think "many" did. There was one main offender. He just posted.... A lot. 

I think most of the users here take rumours with the intended side of salt. 

There were quite a few folks who ran with that rumor, even though others tried to tell them not to put so much weight behind such things. Happens. Every. Gen.

Regardless, there’s still plenty not known, so I will continue to be smart about it and let the powers that be reveal what’s what.

It did not confirm, even if it pointed strongly to it.
Not like it needed to be pointed out, tho.
Maybe you are going too much into Era, there is the only place some people still wanted (or still want) to believe it was RDNA 1.
Warz and stuff, you know.

Twitter. YT, and N4G, you still have a lot of guys claiming it as fact lol

The thing that "hit me" is the power effeciency claims.
GCN that the PS4 uses, must be very poor, if the RDNA 1 is 50% more effecient, and RDNA2 is another 50% ontop of that.

This basically means Playstation 4, if it was made with RDNA2 and still at 16nm, would have like half the power draw.

CUH-2000 (PS4 slim newest model) already only uses like 47-90watts or so, while gameing.
If you could cut that in half just from useing better GPU architecture.... jeeez.

Imagine if they actually could solve the compatability issues from new architecture.... and made a 7nm version of a PS4 super slim?
It could probably be tiny and only sip like "20-30watts" while playing PS4 games.

I can see PS4 portable or PSVR built with PS4 APU inside,  like how Oculus Quest which has the hardware build inside the head set.

They kind of need the specs. With the rise in 4k TV's, they need all the power they can get. Even if they use checkerboard rendering to upscale from 2k.



We knew that for a long time. Waiting for the "it's final" rumor.
