PlayStation 4 Has 16x More RAM Than PS3

By Mario Aguilar on at

The new PlayStation 4 has 8 GB of RAM, which is a huge industry-leading number. But it's even crazier when you realize that the Playstation 3 only had 512 MB of RAM—256 for the system and 256 for video. The new RAM will enable the new "suspend/resume" functionality that allows you to instantaneously start and top playing by hitting the power button. Makes us really excited for what else all that new memory might enable the console to do.
