The recently released document states that the PlayStation 4’s processing power is up to ten times faster than the one of PlayStation 3. Additionally, Sony is claiming that its next-gen console will be quieter than the PS3. The document states, “The system features an optimized design featuring a unified 8GB of high-speed GDDR5 RAM, an eight core X86 CPU, and a powerful graphics processor.”

Among other things, the FAQ also confirms that features such as video sharing and streaming will not be supporting YouTube at launch, nor will the PlayStation 4’s ‘suspend mode’ and ‘share controller’ be available when the console makes its debut. In addition to that, 4k Blu-Ray support also will not be available, but this will be patched in later on.

Sony’s PlayStation 4 is set to be released on November 15, 2013 in the US and on November 29, 2013 in Europe and Australia and the device will come with 22 launch titles.
