The PlayStation 5 Will Have A „Special Sauce!”

That’s not us saying it out of nowhere. It was brought up by Lisa Su, and since she is the CEO of AMD, she has to know a thing or two about the next-gen consoles, including the Sony one, which is still not officially called the PlayStation 5.

Su talked with Jim Cramer on CNBC about AMD’s upcoming business year that will have growth. Let’s see what she said that touches our subject: „We are so honoured and proud to be part of Sony’s next-generation PlayStation. This has been a really long-term partnership with them. We love gaming. We think gaming is a really good secular growth market. What we have done with Sony is really architect something for their application, for their special sauce. It’s a great honour for us. We’re really excited about what the next generation PlayStation will do. And happy to be a part of it.”

Of course, Su didn’t say what it could be about, we have a random guess about it. Previously, we wrote about how the next-gen PlayStation could have backwards compatibility. It was confirmed with PlayStation 4, but previous console generations could be supported by how the console’s CPU (which will be an AMD Ryzen 2 Zen) checks if it’s a legacy game or not – if it is, it might change options, disable settings, and maybe modify graphical settings to allow the game to run. Of course, it is just a guess, but we’ll need an AMD CPU (and GPU, which could be the Navi) for it.

Yesterday, we talked about how the PlayStation 5′s devkit came with a powerful GPU that is capable of 13 TFLOPS performance. Well, that could be even higher than the stronger next-gen Xbox console (but since we haven’t heard anything from the Redmond base regarding their devkits, who knows?), so the next-gen PlayStation console (with its potential late 2020 launch) might appreciate this special sauce.

Still, she likes puzzle and story-oriented games, like Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, which is her favourite title.
