Launch of the next great home console from home Sony May occur in less than two years
A year and a half has passed since the launch of the newest PlayStation console, thePS4 The improved Pro, but it seems that Sony is not building on a particularly great continuity for it - and is already in the midst of a Sisyphean development of thePlaystation The fifth main, which is even in the hands of various game developers around the world in an early prototype version.
We already know that the current generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft are very similar in their characteristics, with general processing hardware and graphics processing from the company AMD - And it seems that the next generation of Sony will continue the trend and by and large, based on eight processing cores in the modern Zen architecture (compared to the economical and significantly weaker Jaguar architecture in the current generation) and Core Graphic from the future Navi generation, which should be based on an innovative production process of 7 nm. It is not known whether this time too we will see Sony based on memory Graphic (GDDR6? HBM2?) As memory A unified system for both general processing and graphics, or beyond the more traditional architecture in it for each processing unit memory Dedicated to its own.
The required transition to a new manufacturing process and new architectures could transform thePlaystation 5 to 2 times or 3 times more powerful thanPlaystation 4 Pro, ostensibly, as part of a similar power consumption and use of a similar product shell - all while continuing to reduce the existing difference between the world of consoles and the world of PCs, which will allow converting games from one platform to another relatively easily - and with application support Virtual Reality And perhaps also Augmented reality Much more advanced.
The current prophecies foretell us the unveiling of the next generation console towards the end of next year, or perhaps even during the year 2020 - six or seven years after the coming of thePlaystation 4, which fit well with the life cycles we saw in the living room consoles of Sony Starting with the first generation and will probably also give Sony enough time to cross a very prestigious sales threshold of 100 million units for the products currently sold in stores. Will Microsoft also begin distributing next-generation products to developers soon? Hope we get answers as soon as possible.
