AMD is hiring relevant SoC verification engineers – SONY PS6 or already in development, will upgrade to AMD’s newer architecture

Even if SONY’s game console PS5 still fails to have enough supply to sell, it does not seem to affect the progress of its development of next-generation products.

According to information dug up by foreign media, AMD is recruiting new SoC verification engineers, whose job responsibilities are to develop a new generation of chips for PlayStation and Xbox. It is reported that the work place is Markham, Canada’s “high-tech capital”.

Foreign media tend to think that this is a signal that the PS6 has started research and development, and of course there is a chance that it will be the PS5 Pro. According to the previous research and development pace of SONY and Microsoft, the mid-term facelift will usually be launched 3 to 4 years after the product is launched, and the new generation will take 6 to 8 years.

Back to the chip itself, the PS5 uses AMD’s semi-custom 7nm SoC for SONY. The CPU part is an 8-core Zen 2 architecture with a maximum of 3.5 GHz; the GPU part is a 36CU RDNA 2 architecture with a floating-point computing performance of 10.3 TFLOPS.

It is inferred from this that the CPU part of the PS5 Pro or PS6 may use Zen 3, Zen 3+, Zen 4 architecture and other options, while the GPU part will be upgraded to the RDNA 3 architecture.
