The detailed specs for Sony's upcoming PlayStation 4, codenamed Orbis, have reportedly been leaked.

VgLeaks posted the final details of the Orbis system which shows a system with eight Jaguar cores at 1.6Ghz each, arranged as two clusters of four and a Liverpool Soc from AMD Fusion APU Architecture.

The Liverpool SOC features a custom implementation of AMD, fusion APU architecture (Accelerated Processing Unit) that provides good performance with low power consumption.

It reportedly also has an integrated CPU and GPU.

The CPU will have eight Jaguar cores at 1.6 Ghz, arranged as two "clusters," each cluster contains 4 cores and a shared 2MB L2 cache.

Its GPU will contain AMD's "R10XX" (Southern Islands) architecture, DirectX 11.1+ feature set, liverpool is an enhanced version of the architecture, 4 GB unified system memory and 176 GB/s with 3.5GB available to games.

The PlayStation 4 will have an internal mass storage at 500 GB HDD and a RAM speed of 4GB.

Other features include a high-speed Blu-Ray optical drive, network capabilities with 1 Gb/s Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WIFI, Bluetooth Peripherals.

Gaming executives at Sony reportedly also plan to ditch the iconic design of the Dualshock controller for a new model for its next-generation console, according to PlayStation Universe.

Two controllers are possibly in development.

Currently named the Orbis Development Tool, one controller will apparently feature motion-sensing and a capacitive touchpad, similar to the back of PlayStation Vita, as well as a 'Share' button. The other input device will be a redesigned Move controller.

The new PS4 may have similar motion control traits to Microsoft's gaming sensor Kinect.

The rumor was started after reports that George Andreas, a former worker on Microsoft's Kinect, was hired by Sony to possibly work on the PS4, according to ExpertReviews.

The decision to hire Andreas may be due to Sony's intention to create a new version of PlaySation Move that is currently on the PS3.

It is still unknown when Sony will unveil the new PS4, but tech analysts at VideoGamer reported that it may be released at the Game Developers Conference which begins on March 25.
