PS4 I chose to do my project on the newest play station system to come out later this year. My reasoning behind why I chose this topic is because I’ve been an avid PS user since the PS1 had come out years ago. Although Xbox has been out just as long, I never really got into the whole Xbox thing. PS4 has come out with some new improvements such as the 10 % increase in the clock frequency and 15 % improvement in instructions clock as well. Its added support for SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AES, CLMUL, MOVBE, AVX, F16C, and BMI1. It now has up to 4 CPU cores, up to 2MB 16-way associative L2 shared cache for 4 cores. It improved the Turbo Dock Technology, the FPU datapath width increased to 128 bit. It added a hardware integer divider, enhanced its cache prefetchers, doubled bandwidth of load/store units, the C6 and CC6 have low power states and also has 3.1mm squared area per core. The PS4 also runs at a higher native resolution making a better gameplay experience with powerful graphics and speed. The improvements to the controller are amazing as well. It now has a touch pad in the center of your controller that has a 2 Point Touch Pad, a Click Mechanism which is a capacitive type. It has a 6-axis motion sensing system, three for axis gyroscope and three for axis accelerometer as well. It also has a Light bar, vibration, and a built-in Mono speaker. To its right are two powered USB 3.0 ports, which can charge your Dualshock 4controllers when the system is turned off, a feature the PS3 sorely lacked. Although the Dualshock 4 controller for the PlayStation 4 looks a lot like its predecessors, but incorporates a new multi-touchpad feature along with useful incremental changes like a headphone jack, so your late-night gaming won't bother anyone but yourself. The last reason I chose the PS4 is because upon review the PS4 is $400 compared to the XBOX ONE which is set at $500. Even though the new XBOX ONE comes with the kinect built in to the system and PS4 sells its camera separately, I’ve never gotten into the whole kinect thing anyways which doesn’t hinder my decision on purchasing the newest PS4.
