Credible Rumor: Sony PS5 to use AMD Ryzen 1st Gen Processor, possible discrete AMD Navi GPU

Discussion created by black_zion on Dec 23, 2018

Direct evidence of Ryzen Gen 1 being used, and since there are no Ryzen Gen 1 processors with Navi graphics, it will be interesting to see if AMD will be simply be able to swap out Vega for Navi or if there will be a discrete Navi card inside. This could also be a good opportunity for AMD to showcase their chiplet design to be used in next generation EPYC if they go that route. If I had to guess though, it's going to be a discrete card and Ryzen CPU since AMD is no doubt going full steam ahead with next generation designs, especially since the PS5 will require 4k60.
