The pc market is large but it doesn't touch the console market still. Any time a console is upgraded is great for a pc simply because now game companies will make games that can take advantage of pc hardware better.

8 GB listed for PS4 would be shared RAM.
ie vram + memory

You guys are looking at this wrong! it won't be a 7xxx series GPU. It WILL be an 8xxx series GPU.
Look at the difference in graphics from a 6850 to a 7850.
I'm thinking this graphics processor will be an 8650 (8670, 8690). I would put it on par with a GTX 650 or a Radeon 7770.
What I would really like to see Sony do is give US the option of our video card to use. It will be interesting to see what a hardware teardown of the unit will reveal and if it will be able to change out the hardware or not.
"Next generation Radeon" The current generation Radeon is the 7xxx series. The specs and timeframes are already released for the 8xxxM chips so I don't see it being too far-fetched to think it will be based on the new architecture.
My office PC is just great at being a PC.
Wow, had no idea my 8400gs card was far better than a PS4's video card.
