512MB of RAM, Confirmed for Sony’s PlayStation Vita
Sony has revealed the final specifications for the upcoming PlayStation Vita.
Finally, the long wait is over! Sony just unveiled the official specifications for its upcoming PlayStation Portable Vita. As confirmed by the manufacturer, the handheld gaming device will be carrying a 512MB of RAM, and not 256MB RAM as rumored.
It was last month when Novarama’s CEO, Dani Sánchez-Crespo, hinted about the RAM capacity of the anticipated PSP successor. “Remember the PSP had 32MB of RAM, we have about ten times that now,” he stated. If you were to do the math, his statement would rather mean that the Vita might be able to support a memory of more than 256 RAM.
Well, aside from the RAM, Sony was also able to disclose additional features that will be present on the handheld. This includes a 128MB of dedicated VRAM and a few social networking apps, like Twitter and Facebook. It is as well confirmed that Vita will be running on a PowerVR SGX543MP4+ GPU and quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor, with support for 120 fps video capturing and 60 fps VGA rear-facing camera. Apart from that, the handheld is capable of playing MP3, AAC, WAV audio file formats, and MPEG-4 videos.
Even though the PlayStation Vita is expected to hit the shelves later this year, a Sony executive affirmed that only those who are in the territories of Japan will be able to purchase the handheld, as the North America release has been delayed until the first quarter of 2012.View Article Source »
