If this is true, I'm pretty impressed. [/sarcasm]

Y u no post diagram?
DirectX 11.1 GPU? Sure. 8GB RAM? If it's cheap RAM, sure. 8-core CPU? Depends on the architecture - I mean, x64? Really? Why? For the devkit, sure, but for the final machine? Doubt it. VGLeaks doesn't sound like a site with an aura of legitimacy though, so it's just another rumour to be taken with a pinch of salt.
And they expect people to pay how much for this? I'm with foxi, seems dubious.
How would you compare these specs to the Wii U's?
wow, that's nearly as good as my PC. Pretty good!
I believe Sony owns Blu-ray
x64 = AMD64.
And before someone says "LOL NO, x64 is just 64 bits!", no it isn't. 64-bits IS 64-bits. x64 is AMD64 (which is x86 64-bit).
Yeah, put me in the skeptic boat as well. Specs-ulation is nice and all, but take everything with a grain or two of salt.
And since I'm such a trendsetter...
The hdmi input is what throws believability out the window for me...
8 gigs of RAM... Huh.
It's exactly something as farfetched as that that makes this thing believable. Any fool making up specs wouldn't put something like that in there (what's the use for that, I imagine? HDTV recording, maybe?).
This. No game console has any use for HDMI input.
If this console's processor have turbo boost, then it will be more powerful than my laptop!
Seems pretty unrealistic though...
Yeah, right. As Foxi said, devkit at the best, judging on the RAM.
That's what I was thinking, why an input?
The said specs isn't really surprising. There's like 10 different sources with suppose inside info out there saying the same thing. 8 cores CPU clocked 1.6GHZ, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 6x speed Blueray. Another thing they say 2/3 cores and 3GB RAM will be reserved for the OS. We'll see I guess.
Why DDR3 RAM, PS4 is hinted at to be GDDR5 4GB RAM...hmmm. Damn that's a significant difference if true it terms of RAM, DDR3 isn't going to hold up against that.
The only possible reason I can think of is so you could use the machine as a DVR type machine.
It's not that this wouldn't be an awesome feature, the issue is that the cost of adding this feature would be just too much on top of the BD drive and with the whole streaming media thing taking off.... The added costs just do not justify adding it.
Maybe one of the early specifications talked about it, and this is where this information came from.... If that's true, the rest of the specs also could be a bit off too.
it IS possible considering a lot of people use DVR's now days.... but with netflix and the like doubtful.
DDR3 is cheap as peanuts, putting 8GBs in there instead of 4GB would change the final cost of 30 bucks or down there. It's a $399 console (at best) we're talking about, nobody's going to care about 30 more bucks on a price tag like that.
I wouldn't be surprised if Orbis ends up having 16GB. Y'know how Sony is with having overpowered, underused, expensive consoles
