Tech site Semi-Accurate has apparently received some details regarding the next PlayStation console, and it seems pretty interesting. While the original article is subscription based ($1000 for professionals, $100 for students), some of the good folks over at ResetEra who have a sub, divulged some tidbits about Sony’s next-gen machine.
The general summary of the article is as follows:
- Sony is continuing their partnership with AMD and (to nobody’s surprise) it will be using a Ryzen CPU
- The GPU architecture is something based off AMD’s upcoming Navi architecture (but not Navi itself) – sounds like a custom solution.
- VR “goodies” baked in at the Silicon level – this likely means that the PS5 will be quite VR-ready and that Sony will continue venturing down this line
- A large amount of devkits have already been sent to developers. This does suggest that a 2018 PS5 release is not out of the question (however doesn’t really seem likely at all)
Semi-Accurate do have a decent track record considering they outed the PS4 specs before its 2013 launch and also Nintendo and Nvidia’s partnership for the Switch. Overall, we feel that this is a safe bet, although we would’ve guessed Vega for the GPU.
But what do you think? True? Fake? Let us know in the comments.
