Analysts from the Japanese company Ace Economic Research Institute Hideki Yasuda predict if Sony PlayStation 5 (PS5) will be announced by the end of 2019.
According to Yasuda, even though it will be announced at the end of 2019, that did not mean that Sony would immediately market the fifth generation PlayStation console during that period.
Previously declared, the PS5 will carry the processor and GPU (graphics card) designed specifically by AMD, namely Zen and Navi.
Sony chose to use a new processor and graphics card from AMD for the next generation of consoles.
This is the second time Sony is rumoured to be using AMD’s latest hardware technology.
Sony’s collaboration with AMD for GPU Navi has long been circulating the internet, or more precisely since King Koduri served as the head of Radeon Technologies Group.
The report also does not mention in detail whether AMD will assemble a system-on-chip (SoC) specifically based on Zen chipsets or Sony will use other components for the PS5 console’s ‘brains’.
Until now, it is still not known whether the GPU installed on the PS5 console will be integrated or separate.
Since the Japanese company is still not open, it is unlikely that the PS5 will appear on the market in the near future, according to Ubergizmo.
