The Playstation 4 dev kit has undergone numerous changes as the console has evolved, but this latest evolution is the current kit that studios are working with to design their titles.
This information comes to us from the FCC, and we can get a better understanding of just what studios are playing around with. The DUH-D1000AA prototype Development Kit for PS4 is listed in these documents, tested for its Bluetooth and 802.11 b/g/n WiFi radios.
There are huge differences between this model, and the one that will be sitting under your TV in your home. The sleek design is all but scrapped, and instead extra cooling, ports, indicator lights along with the design to allow it to be mounted into a wrack take its place.
You’ll notice that the maximum clock frequency in the system is pointing to 2.75GHZ – but before anyone gets excited, remember that the AMD Jaguar will be hitting clock speeds of about 2GHZ at max – and likely, for the final production consoles, Sony will be sticking with the 1.6GHZ. So we’re looking at something different inside the system 😉
The Playstation 4 will of course be released later this year.
