In an interview with CNBC, AMD CEO Lisa Su said it was an “honour” to create the chip, which will be based on the third generation of the company’s Ryzen line, containing eight cores of its new 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture.
“What we have done with Sony is really architect something for their application, for their special sauce,” she said.
“It’s a great honour for us,” Su added. “We’re really excited about what the next generation PlayStation will do.”
Additionally, Cerny believes the PS5 price “will be appealing to gamers in light of its advanced feature set”.
Sony’s PlayStation division posted strong results for the 12 months ended March 2019, but the company also warned that PS5 development costs will hit profitability in its current business year.
The PS5 launch date isn’t expected to fall before April 2020.
