Default Re: PS4 Playstation 4 - it's time

It may be the 'way of the future', but for now it's actually smarter to use a side loaded cache like the Xbox One does (and Intel does it with their high end iGPU platforms)

RAM will eventually get faster and cheaper, so it may be doable. But Sony is essentially taking a really expensive route to future-proof their system.

It was a huge gamble too - it wasn't until really late that they decided they could afford to use 8GB of memory. Originally the system was designed to have 4GB (which is why the OS is so small)
