PS5, Next Xbox May be Powered by AMD Gonzalo Zen 2 Chip With Navi GPU
Both Sony and Microsoft switched to x86-64 architecture for their current-gen gaming consoles, and both are expected to continue along that path for their respective next-gen offerings. According to noted leakster, APISAK (@TUM_APISACK), AMD is working on an all-new APU that will be used to power the next-gen gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft. The chip reportedly bears the number: 2G16002CE8JA2_32/10/10_13E9, and is expected to feature an octa-core Zen 2 CPU with a base clock of 1.6GHz and a boost clock of 3.2GHz.
As for the GPU, it will apparently be a 7nm Navi chip that could be marketed as ‘Navi 10 Lite’. There’s no more info on this subject as of now, but we’ll hopefully get more details in the days ahead.
