July 16, 2013 // 1:13 am - Sony's PS4 development kit FCC filing shows off extra ports alongside a 2.75GHz max clock speed with details below.

To quote from Engadget (linked above): "Sony proudly showed off its PlayStation 4 hardware for the first time at E3, and now we're getting a peek at what developers are working with this generation thanks to the FCC.

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. As one would expect, the diagrams show it eschews the sleek design of the consumer model for extra cooling, a shape made for rack mounts plus extra indicator lights and ports.

Also of note is a "max clock speed" listing of 2.75GHz, and although we don't know how fast the game system will run by default, it's interesting to hear what that 8-core AMD Jaguar silicon may be capable of while maintaining a temperature between 5 and 35 degrees celsius.

Hit the link above to check out the documents for yourself, after seeing this and the system's controller become a part of the FCC's database all we're left waiting for is Mark Cerny's baby."

Obviously there may be a small fee (maybe if none if its like PS Mobile) for a license file.

Following up on Sony's PS4 Dev Kit FCC filing, today the Retail PlayStation 4 counterpart has also passed through the FCC with details below.

From Engadget (linked above), to quote: "Sony's PS4 dev kit passed by the FCC roughly a week ago, and now its consumer-oriented counterpart has passed through Uncle Sam's offices.

Not only do the federal documents show the consoles' polished exterior, but they once again note a "max clock frequency" of 2.75GHz, teasing just what kind of horsepower sits inside the black parallelogram.

Though there isn't much more to note in the agency's files, a duo of system labels marked with "Made in China" and "Made in Japan" hint that Hirai and Co. will be manufacturing the hardware in both those territories.

Mark Cerny's wunderconsole won't be hitting store shelves until later this year, but it already has the appropriate paperwork to make the trip stateside."

Finally, according to IGN the system will only consume enough power to generate a temperature between 5 degrees Celsius and 35 degrees Celsius. In comparison to the PS3, this is much less. The PS3 runs between 35-45, and it will yellow light if it surpasses 60 degrees.

The PS4 will also only weight in at 2.5 kilograms, which is half of what the original FAT PS3 did. The max clock frequency of the processor has been revealed to be 2.75Ghz.

Can't really tell. The new pics provided in PS3 News's post look to be a different color (black) and have nice LED lights

Recently we reported on a Sony DUH-D1000AA PS4 Dev Kit FCC filing, and now Gizmodo (linked above) has made available a picture of what a PlayStation 4 development unit looks like.

Below are the details, to quote: "The cat may already be out of the bag, but for many months we didn't know what the PS4 looked like.

Now, we know what the retail version will look, but what about the developer box Sony hid during the big reveal and on Jimmy Fallon? Well, here's an exclusive image we've acquired of some developer boxes that were used at E3.

Like any PC you'd build yourself, the guts are what actually matter and in the case of game consoles, the developer units typically just hide final console design. They're never really that attractive, which is the exact opposite of what we'll be seeing this holiday season."

Bring back the old Phat style

The PS4 is suppose to run ALL games at 60 FPS (Hence the term "its an actual PC") which I could also see their hinting at other os
