Can tensorflow run on Playstation 4. I googled it, but not much information has been added.

Thank you


Python can run on the Play Station 4. Tensorflow can run in Python. So, yes, Tensorflow can run on the Play Station 4.

  • How do I run python in PS4? I believe with the linux hack for PS4, someone can find on google, right? – just_learning Apr 14 '19 at 9:44
  • I don't know the exact method, I just know it's possible. Head over to Stack Overflow if you encounter issues. – Nino Filiu Apr 14 '19 at 10:23

PS4 has AMD GCN 2.0 architecture. ( https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/playstation-4-gpu.c2085 ) But not exactly. They bypass L1 / L2 cache to have direct memory access.

AMD ROC'm driver: https://github.com/RadeonOpenCompute/ROCm https://rocmdocs.amd.com/en/latest/Deep_learning/Deep-learning.html

So in theory it is likely to be possible.

It is can do 1.8TFlops (300 USD), which is a bit better then NVidia Jetson TX2 (475 USD) 1.3 TFlops.

So in theory it is possible and worth but due to the fact that I haven't seen any sign of success on the internet, I have my doubts if the ROCm driver can be installed w/o problems on PS4. But I am also curious if someone managed to do this.
