Performance

1.CPU speed

8 x 1.6GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.
Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
A higher memory bandwidth means the memory can be accessed faster and therefore data can be retrieved quicker, having a positive effect on the performance.
You can easily connect an external hard drive via USB if you need more space.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.
Compute units are a part of the GPU that contain the stream processors, an important component of graphics processing power.
The ROPs are responsible for some of the final steps of the rendering process, writing the final pixel data to memory and carrying out other tasks such as anti-aliasing to improve the look of graphics.

General info

The internal hard drive can be replaced by the user, for example if you wish to upgrade to a larger storage capacity.
2.Is region free
Sony PS4
Region free devices allow you to play games from different continents. This enables you to collect a larger game library, and you could play games before they are released in your region.
Devices with an internal power supply are desirable as they don't require a large external "power brick" on the cable. It’s more aesthetically pleasing and an advantage if you have limited space.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
5.width

305mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
7.volume

4445.38cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
An optical disc drive (ODD) allows you to read data from discs such as DVDs and Blu-Rays.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Connectivity

With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.supports Wi-Fi
Sony PS4
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
All DLNA-certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
A portable device (e.g., handheld console, smartphone) can be connected to a home console and used as a gamepad.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Newer USB versions are faster and have better power management.

Features

Consoles which have more games offer more choice to the user. It is also an indicator of how popular a console is.
Exclusive games are only available to that game console producer.
You can use your voice to control key functions of the device and you can easily access your device without pushing any button.
This means you don’t have to wait for the entire game to download first, as the later stages of the game download while you are playing.
The more channels of sound, the more realistic the experience becomes.
The device tracks the user's motion and gestures using a camera. This allows for enhanced gameplay through recognizing the player's movement.
The optical drive of the console supports Blu-ray discs, allowing you to watch movies in 1080p HD resolution.
Your gaming history is stored online, so you can keep your reputation when you change console.
9.Supports 3D
Sony PS4
Allows you to view in 3D (if you have a 3D display and glasses).

Controllers

More controllers allows you to have more people playing at a time.
A motion controller is a type of game controller that utilizes sensors (such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, and other types of sensors) to track motion and provide input.
The more analog sticks, the more complex the input can be.
With a touchpad, users can control the device by moving their finger on a touch-sensitive surface.
The device controllers connect to the console wirelessly, allowing for a tangle free gaming experience.
With dual force feedback the controller has realistic vibrations, allowing you to feel the direction from which the impact is coming.
A lighter controller puts less strain on the hands while playing.
The more buttons the device has, the more complex the input can be.
