Sony’s PS4 has been tested extensively by the US government regulator agency the FCC and has been found to run “significantly cooler” than the PS3. In fact, the operating temp of the PS4 is 41-95 Degrees Fahrenheit, as opposed to 113-131 Degrees Fahrenheit of the PS3.

The system also has a maximum clock efficiency of 2.75GHz. In terms of size and weight it falls somewhere between the PS3 Slim and Super Slim. Regarding size, it’s half an inch narrower and half an inch shorter than the Slim, but it’s half an inch longer. In regards to weight, the PS3 Slim is 3.2kg, the Super Slim 2.1kg, and the PS4 is 2.8kg.

Claims have also emerged that between 4.5-5.5Gb of the system’s 8Gb of RAM will be available for use by games, while the OS uses 2.5-3.5Gb. Sony later clarified saying that it’s essentially 5Gb of RAM for games and 3Gb for OS – the same ratio that XB1 uses. [Source: Eurogamer]
