Although the PS5 global launch was delayed for some reason, the production process is still moving forward normally. The back-end IC package test maker will start next week by sending AMD’s custom-built processor stodgout to Sony’s PS5 from downstream manufacturers and reaching a small peak by the end of the third quarter,media reported.
The Sony PS5, like Microsoft’s Xbox Series X, uses a custom processor from AMD, based on a custom Zen 2 CPU architecture, RDNA 2 GPU architecture, and is manufactured using a 7nm process, with slightly different specifications.
The PS5 integrates eight CPU cores and supports synchronous multithreaded, master frequency 3.5GHz, and adjusts autonomously according to the actual situation, while integrating 36 GPU cells, 2304 stream processors, frequency 2.23GHz (same variable), floating-point performance of 10.28 tFlops (10.28 trillion floats per second).
The Xbox Series X is also an eight-core, with a primary frequency of 3.8GHz, but 3.66GHz when multithreaded, and 52 GPU cells, 3328 stream processors, frequency 1.825GHz, floating-point performance of 12TFlops, and a chip area of 360.45 mm2.
Sony had planned to hold the PS5 global launch at 4 a.m. Beijing time on June 5, and for the first time introduced players to the next era game, but has been postponed, the specific time to be determined, hope that the end of the year’s plan to go public will not change.
According to the latest data released by JPR, AMD shipped a total of 553 million GPUs in 2013-2019, of which Sony PS and Microsoft Xbox contributed 29%, a well-deserved cash cow.
