RepairLabs digs deep to find out what it is exactly that makes the GDDR5 memory utilized in the Playstation 4 such a massive improvement over its predecessor.

The image clarity difference from the PS3 to the PS4 is jaw-dropping.

RepairLabs has broken down the specs given on the all-new PS4, and found out what it is that gives the Playstation 4 such a vast improvement in quality over the present king-of-the-hill, the PS3. They created an image illustrating the difference between the upcoming system and the current.

With 8GB's of super-speed GDDR5, the Playstation 4 is capable of producing 32 times the amount of data that the PS3 can produce with its' current 256MB of GDDR3, while running on an 8-bit wide data buffer that will allow for 20% more processing juice.

To make a comparison to what some consider to be the reigning king, Alienware's Aurora PC is only utilizing 4GB of GDDR5, half of what the Playstation 4 can boast. “The idea behind all of this power is to make the Playstation 4 the most powerful gaming system on the market for years to come -- hopefully being able to keep pace with the long run the PlayStation 3 has had, with a whopping 8 years on the market,” says Jason Draper, the RepairLabs resident Certified Mac Technician.

We should expect not only massive graphical improvements, but also better implementation and usage of 3D in gaming, something that is lacking with this generation of consoles, with the PS3 being no exception.

“The image clarity difference from the PS3 to the PS4 is jaw-dropping. Not only does the Playstation 4 offer much sharper graphics – it also gives developers the headroom to continue to expand the capabilities of what we believe to be possible with a home entertainment system,” says DJ Dixon, a writer and tech lover at RepairLabs.
