Are you a fans of Sony Playstation? Playstation 3 and 4 are two latest products from this console. We are going to discuss about both Playstation series and its improvements.
Playstation 3 has three options of model: standard/original, slim and super slim models. Each model represents the improvement of design in the Playstation 3. Each design improvement also followed by the improvement of capacity that brought by each model. All models of Playstation 3 can be recognized by their curve sides that distinguish Playstation 3 from Playstation 2.
For its latest product, Sony Playstation 4 seems to come back to more angular design. It can be seen from the design that brought by this product. Playstation 4 tries to answer the market challenge in expecting more compact design. With the dimension of 27.5 cm wide, 30.5 cm deep and 5.3 cm tall, Playstation 4 is significantly smaller and slimmer that super slim Playstation 3.

CPU and RAM
There are some major differences that you can see form CPU and RAM in both products. Sony states that Playstation 4 is 10 times more powerful than its predecessor. One of most important key that makes Playstation 4 is more powerful than Playstation 3 is the different technical architecture. Playstation 3 is built with 3.2 Ghz single-core CPU with 550 MHz GPU and 256 MB DDR3 RAM. Differently, Playstation 4 consists of 2.7 GHz 8-core AMD Jaguar CPU with 800MHz AMD Radeon GPU and 8GB of RAM. With such different specifications, it is normal that Playstation 4 is more powerful than Playstation 3.
Due to its different architecture, it doesn’t mean that you cannot play some PS3 games in the Playstation 4. With PlayStation Now, you can easily play many PS3 games in the PS4. However, it doesn’t work in disk-based games or title. So you can only stream the game from PlayStation Now.
