The PlayStation 5 Has A “Special Sauce”, AMD CEO Teases
AMD has been working closely with Sony for the development of the PlayStation 5 console, and the company is proud of having contributed to powering a "special sauce".
Speaking with Jim Cramer, AMD CEO Lisa Su discussed the company's partnership with Sony, teasing some sort of special sauce that will be powered by the company's chip.
We are so honoured and proud to be part of Sony's next-generation PlayStation. This has been a really long-term partnership with them. We love gaming. We think gaming is a really good secular growth market. What we have done with Sony is really architect something for their application, for their special sauce. It's a great honor for us. We're really excited about what the next generation PlayStation will do. And happy to be a part of it.
We still have no idea on the console's specs, but it seems like the PlayStation 5 is going to be a very powerful console. A recent rumor revealed that the console's devkit is running a nearly 13 teraflops GPU. What we know for sure is that the console will be powered by a CPU based on the third generation of AMD’s Ryzen line and by a GPU that will support ray tracing.
The PlayStation 5 is currently in the works, and it will be launched on a yet to be confirmed release date worldwide.
