July 24, 2013 // 4:21 pm - 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.

We can only hope, but everything was pointing to it being a measly 1.6GHz due to it requiring ~60% more TDP to reach 2GHz according to Anandtech, which is about as reputable as any source gets. I wish they would come up with a design that would allow consoles offload their work to a PC, so those of us who want insane resolutions and filtering while maintaining 60fps (or higher) can get precisely that. I dunno about the rest of you but my monitor resolution is 2560x1440 which is pretty standard for a 27" IPS or PLS monitor.

I would say the PS4 retail models will be a faster speed. May only be the speed devs are allowed to go maximum. Otherwise the ps3 processor is faster for its own pace

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."
