Gamers never get tired of hearing rumors about next generation consoles. A dutch site by the name of PS3 Clan has just revealed the newest rumor about the PlayStation 4, and the raw power it will have under its hood.

According to the site, the PS4 will have superior graphics to everything else on the market. Below is a statement the site received from IMGTEC quoted.

“The PlayStation 4 shall use a high end variant of the 6 Series line. Performance, specifications and features are unknown at this time. The Series 6 shall receive an official announcement from IMGTEC sometime in 2010, with initial models targeting the smartphone and netbook sectors.”

According to this, the PS4 will use the PowerVR Series 6 graphics card by Imagination Technologies. This graphics card is suppose to be 3 to 5 times better than a competitive level nVidia/ATI graphics card. The PowerVR card is also the same size and price as a nVidia card. Hopefully, gamers won’t have to wait long to find out if this rumor is true.
