PlayStation 4 (PS4) latest news and rumours suggest that the next gaming console from Sony might support GPU switching. Earlier reports hint that the Japanese conglomerate would be using an AMD APU in its next offering for the gaming community. Sony is reported to file patents in this year, which might be related to PS4.
GPU switching will allow the users to operate on one or more PS4 GPUs in tandem, but the process will be running in the background, hidden from the user. In layman terms, this feature will synchronise tow PS4 GPUs when the system is enabled increasing the performance without reducing the power consumption.
Sony had recently filed several patent applications, which include an application titled, ‘game device’, suggesting an inclusion of a game content screen in PS4. Many reports have been surfaced about the new gaming console from Sony featuring a more focused and dynamic community interaction interface.
PS4 release rumours have been doing the rounds as they indicated the launch of the gaming console next year, but new reports state that the users might be able to get their hands on PS4 much later than next year. Speculations hint that Sony is facing specification delays from a manufacturing company, which could see the release push back to 2014.
With PS4 release and specification rumours evolving with time, Sony decided to call it curtains for PS2 as the Japanese conglomerate announced that the firm is going to terminate the production of PS2 in the coming time. PS2 will not be available for purchase once the current inventory runs out.
