According to the latest gaming rumors, the Sony PlayStation 5 is going to feature an AMD Ryzen CPU and an AMD Navi GPU. Thanks to a recent leak, we know that someone at Sony is working with Ryzen Technology.
“A principal programmer at Sony associated with the firm’s Advanced Technology Group is working with AMD’s Ryzen technology, improving the Zen core’s micro-architecture support within the LLVM compiler stack – a key component of a tool used in the PlayStation 4 development environment. Of course, there is no PS4 product using the Ryzen processor, leading to speculation that this is related to a prospective next-gen PlayStation 5 console currently in development.”
The PS5’s GPU, Navi, is going to be a 7nm GPU. As of now, no other console or PC features a 7nm GPU, and that is excellent news for fans of PlayStation consoles.
