PS4 Slim Appears Online

 

It looks like Sony will soon be announcing a new Slim model of their PS4 console, which will likely be announced at E3 or Gamescom.

This new model will likely include a new AMD SoC which is rumored use a die size of 20nm, as we discussed a few months ago. This die shrink will result in a smaller SoC, which will draw less power and cost less to produce. This will allow Sony to save money on the chip itself and allow them to make the power supply and other parts smaller/cheaper due to the smaller power draw of the unit.  

As we can see in the pictures below the new model of the PS4 is much smaller then the current PS4, with the Blu-Ray drive taking a very large portion of it's overall footprint.

The AMD made chip for the Sony PlayStation 4 features the an 8 core Kabini CPU, with 1024 GCN GPU Cores (256 more than the Xbox One), and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface wired to 8 GB of GDDR5 memory.

Let's hope it's not the final design. I've always bought the slim-models of consoles (PS2 and PS3), but these actually looked better than the original console.. These are pretty tacky imo.Quote

Not going to lie, I think it looks fantastic. I guess this was the most likely use of the improved SOC that AMD have made.Quote

Looks.. odd. The front is the bluray side but yet the console is still angled to the left? If they made it angled front to back like the current one it would look better.Quote
