AMD has announced that it will increase production of its SoCs so that there are units left over for the year-end launch of next-gen, PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles.
Over the past few months we’ve seen, heard and read various rumors about PS5 and Xbox Series X of all kinds, although many of them focused on an eventual delay in the launch of both consoles due to the consequences of the coronavirus in the hardware production lines, rumors that have been denied ad nauseam by both Sony and Microsoft, saying over and over again that the launch of their next-gen consoles will take place this very year 2020.
This is precisely what Lisa Su, the main responsible for AMD, who is in charge of creating the heart of both machines, the SoCs in which the processor and the graphics that these consoles will carry are integrated. AMD will start to promote their production to support the launch of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X at the end of the year.
Remember that both PS5 and Xbox Series X use SoC AMD with a Zen 2 architecture processor and RDNA 2 graphics. For PS5 the processor will be 8-core 3.5 GHz with variable frequency and the graphics will reach 10.28 TFLOPs with 36 Compute Units at 2.23 GHz (also with variable frequency). The Xbox Series X will be more powerful on paper with an 8-core 3.8GHz processor and a 12 TFLOPS graphics with 52 Compute Units at 1.825GHz.
