More PS Orbis Information Revealed

January 29, 2013

VGLEAKS have updated their information on the PS Orbis, here is a quote:

LIVERPOOL SOC

  • Custom implementation of AMD Fusion APU Arquitecture (Accelerated Processing Unit)
  • Provides good performance with low power consumtion
  • Integrated CPU and GPU
  • Considerably bigger and more powerful than AMD’s other APUs

CPU:

  • Orbis contains eight Jaguar cores at 1.6 Ghz, arranged as two “clusters”
  • Each cluster contains 4 cores and a shared 2MB L2 cache
  • 256-bit SIMD operations, 128-bit SIMD ALU
  • SSE up to SSE4, as well as Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX)
  • One hardware thread per core
  • Decodes, executes and retires at up to two intructions/cycle
  • Out of order execution
  • Per-core dedicated L1-I and L1-D cache (32Kb each)
  • Two pipes per core yield 12,8 GFlops performance
  • 102.4 GFlops for system

GPU:

  • GPU is based on AMD’s “R10XX” (Southern Islands) architecture
  • DirectX 11.1+ feature set
  • Liverpool is an enhanced version of the architecture
  • 18 Compute Units (CUs)
  • Hardware balanced at 14 CUs
  • Shared 512 KB of read/write L2 cache
  • 800 Mhz
  • 1.843 Tflops, 922 GigaOps/s
  • Dual shader engines
  • 18 texture units
  • 8 Render backends

Memory:

  • 4 GB unified system memory, 176 GB/s
  • 3.5 available to games (estimate)

Storage:

- High speed Blu-ray drive

  • single layer (25 GB) or dual layer (50 GB) discs
  • Partial constant angular velocity (PCAV)
  • Outer half of disc 6x (27 MB/s)
  • Inner half varies, 3.3x to 6x

- Internal mass storage

  • One SKU at launch: 500 GB HDD
  • There may also be a Flash drive SKU in the future

Networking:

  • 1 Gb/s Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WIFI, and Bluetooth

Peripherals:

  • Evolved Dualshock controller
  • Dual Camera
  • Move controller

Extra:

  • Audio Processor (ACP)
  • Video encode and decode (VCE/UVD) units
  • Display ScanOut Engine (DCE)
  • Zlib Decompression Hardware

UPDATE: some people is confused about the GPU, here you have more info about it:

Each CU contains dedicated:

- ALU (32 64-bit operations per cycle)

- Texture Unit

- L1 data cache

- Local data share (LDS)

About  14 + 4 balance:

- 4 additional CUs (410 Gflops) “extra” ALU as resource for compute

- Minor boost if used for rendering

Dual Shader Engines:

- 1.6 billion triangles/s, 1.6 billion vertices/s

18 Texture units

- 56 billion bilinear texture reads/s

- Can utilize full memory bandwith

8 Render backends:

- 32 color ops/cycle

- 128 depth ops/cycle

- Can utilize full memory bandwith
