PS4 GPU Switching

GPU switching will allow the users to operate on one or more PS4 GPUs in tandem, but the process will be running in the background, hidden from the user. In layman terms, this feature will synchronise tow PS4 GPUs when the system is enabled increasing the performance without reducing the power consumption.

With PS4 release and specification rumours evolving with time, Sony decided to call it curtains for PS2as the Japanese conglomerate announced that the firm is going to terminate the production of PS2 in the coming time. PS2 will not be available for purchase once the current inventory runs out.
