This sounds cool, but its more likely to be the soon to come AMD piledriver trinity APU (check out AMD Trinity A10-5800K). That will have lower power consumption even though they are higher clocked. And have a intergrated chipset based on radeon hd 7xxx series. So it could easily "crossfire" with a separate 7xxx discreet card. This is great for ps4 and PC gamers. If these specs are somewhat true, the ps4 will basically be a PC (unupgradable,locked down pc :P) But games will not need much changes to run on PS4 and PC, so maybe we will stop seeing lousy ports to ps4 and even PC of multiplatform games.If this thing ever did get hacked up, or exploit found i would be surprised to see full windows 7+ on it lol. AMD is a good choice, there lowcost, and a good bang for your buck.There apu's are nice espically crossfired. And this could really help AMD get up off the ground since they havent been doing the "best".
I personally just made the switch to PC gaming though, upgraded my rig from something that could barely play half-life :P to something that can play basically any game maxed out. And it didnt cost much either.
I got a AMD Phenom II x4 BE overclocked at 4.1ghz with coolermaster 212+
MSI twinfrozr Radeon HD 6950, Unlocked to 6970 with tweaked bios, and OCed to 950/1375 CORE/VRAM. And then 8GB of ram.

Ok for one you can not compare to CPU with complety different architecture, almost like comparing a quadcore tegra 3 with a quadcore Phenom ii x4, even at the same clock per core the phenom would likely beat it, completly different architecture, this AMD APU and The CELL processor.
Also sony could get a custom APU with Eight piledriver cores, and a radeon HD 7660M which could easily crossfire with a 7670 like the rumor says. But 4 cores would be plenty.
