With the announcement of the first details of the next-generation PlayStation Sony technical director Mark Cerny, the reputation grinder on the PS5 heated properly. Inside the Next-Gen-Console are specially optimized chips from AMD work. In the processor, the Japanese manufacturer apparently chose a third generation Ryzen processor, which is manufactured in the 7nm process (Zen 2) and has eight cores. The graphics device, on the other hand, will be based on an AMD Navi GPU.
It's time to go down to business: Now the PS5's possible hardware is being analyzed.
The overall package allows PlayStation 5 to create the sophisticated Raytracing technology and play high 8K resolution games. The colleagues in the Wired magazine, Sony could produce this information in a new interview, now report more intensively on the possibly used AMD processor. They cite statements by veteran analyst Pelham Smithers, who sees AMD Ryzen 3600G as the heart of PS5.
Expert expects $ 399
This Ryzen 5 chip could already be available in the second half of this year for sales prices between $ 180 and $ 200. In early March, the first detailed rumors spread to the 3600G processor. For example, a Singapore retailer predicted a price of $ 199 and a performance of up to 4.0 GHz on eight cores and sixteen wires. There is an energy consumption of up to 95 watts (TDP) in the room. In any case, Smithers here sees the optimal CPU candidate for PlayStation 5, to place the game console in the $ 400 price range on the market.
So far, it is likely that the Sony PS5 will appear in the third or fourth quarter of 2020. Experts expect a first teaser on the new console this year, probably during PlayStation Experience in the fall or winter. Microsoft, on the other hand, was able to use its planned big debut at the upcoming E3 game exhibition to pamper its Xbox Two (Scarlett), which is also in for next year's outlook and can fight for PlayStation 5 in terms of performance.
