Rumor: PS4 dev kit shipping with AMD A10 APU

VG247 claims Sony shipped out new PlayStation 4 development kits that use an APU based on the AMD A10 series. The chip is described as a derivative of existing A10 hardware, and the ultimate goal is reportedly for it to be able to run 1080p games in 3D, to create a console powerful enough for today and tomorrow's market. The developer kits are housed in a normal PC kit, they feature 8GB or 16GB of RAM, 256GB of storage (no word whether it's HDD or SSD), and a Blu-ray drive.
We were told that Sony’s aim with Orbis is to avoid problems involved in launching PS3 by creating something “very affordable” but that “isn’t a slouch”.

The machine has WiFi and Ethernet connectivity and HDMI out. Our source said the was “no difference” between PlayStation 3 and Orbis input/output.

The UI, however, has been revamped. It was said today that players will now be able to press the PS button mid-game and travel “anywhere” on the system. An example given was buying DLC from the PS Store mid-game then seamlessly returning to play.

“They’re trying to make it as fluid as possible,” our source said.
Codenamed "Orbis", the new console is anticipated to be introduced at an event just before E3 next year.
