AMD is "working with both Sony and Microsoft on consoles" and their "secret sauce"

It looks like AMD will be powering the PS5 and Xbox Project Scarlet.



Read more about AMD "working with both Sony and Microsoft on consoles" and their "secret sauce".

The rumour that AMD designed the Navi specifically for PlayStation is laughable. it's been in AMDs roadmap for so long and Sony only just recently said they started the design of the next console

So let the song ring out loud! "What about ray tracing"

If next consoles could do ray tracing I would be thoroughly impressed.

...ehm, correct me if I'm wrong, but even the Gamecube had an ATI GPU, so pretty much every console is using AMD hardware, so no news at all?
Seems like this portion was the only thing that kept AMD alive before Ryzen.

Nintendo use Nvidia now.

Also, whilst Piledriver wasn't great it did still sell.

I am starting to feel that Navi may be AMD's answer to RT. If it has more than one GPU core then the second could be used for RT?

Either way I don't care about that, but more that the fact it has two cores and devs will need to make them both work which will have a great knock on effect for us and PC gaming.

It kind of confuses me as well, but I can see it being true. I dunno why exactly. It just seems that AMD can't cater to more than one market at a time with any ferocity and need to focus on one thing. Navi being specifically for consoles kind of makes sense, but that doesn't necessarily mean it can't be adequate for custom PC systems as well. It would be kind of like Vega but not as useless because building an enthusiast chip is harder than building a midrange one. Plus, consoles are for games, which is what PCs are partially for as well (so the 'transfer' might be smoother), while data centres, computational machines, and mining rigs have a lot less in common with gaming.

Maybe they'll do some very specific effects so marketing monkeys have something to write about.
