PlayStation 5 to reportedly use AMDs Zen CPU

Sony logoSony hasnt revealed anything about its next-generation PlayStation console but if a new report is to be believed, the PlayStation 5 will be powered by AMDs Zen CPU architecture paired with the companys Navi GPU architecture. The report even mentions that AMD developed the Navi GPU architecture specifically for the PlayStation 5.

Citing anonymous industry sources, Forbes reports that Sony is going to opt for AMDs Zen CPU and Navi GPU architecture for its next-generation PlayStation console. It merits mentioning here that this is the second time it has been reported that Sony may opt for this architecture.

Sonys collaboration with AMD for Navi has reportedly been going on for a while, likely during the tenure of Radeon Technologies Group head Raja Koduris stint at the company to the extent that AMDs RX Vega project is believed to have suffered because of it.

The report does mention that its unclear right now if AMD is going to build a custom system-on-chip for Sony with the Zen chip or if Sony is going to use separate parts. Its also not known at this point time whether the GPU is going to be integrated or discrete.

Its too soon to say right now when Sony might be thinking about launching its next-generation console. The company itself hasnt dropped any hints to suggest that it may happen in the near future.
