And 8 GB of high speed low latency RAM costs me £26. For Sony, who will be buying in bulk, not needing the high speeds and embedding rather than buying in sticks, you can cut that price by AT LEAST a third. Its a no brainer.
If the next gen of consoles (sorry Wii U, you just aren't) doesn't have 32mb eDRAM and 8GB of RAM then 1080p/60 with next gen graphical engines will not happen.
Radeon HD 7970. No, no, no, just no. Cost issues aside (its a £300 component guys) the heat and power requirements mean the console would need to be the size of a fridge.
And be a fridge.
+1 I do think however, it will have a Ram slot for the advent of Super HD TV. I also believe the the graphics core will be at the low end of HD7000 series, if it is indeed a APU. Then again to the console masses, the jump will be phenomenal and no doubt it will be "sold at a loss". To be lapped up, just like the guff about "overheads" & Bloated OS's. To detract from the fact the hardware is not as as good a deal as it is made out to be. When you look that these quotes are made by guys under contract tied to console platforms & publishers. If you can't see what anyone with average intelligence knows about business & commerce more fool you.
