So Semiaccuarate who got info right about the nx with nintendo partnering with nvidia for the switch and giving correct ps4 specs in 2012 has a lot of info on ps5. Problem is it requires a professional level subscription which is $1000 to read the article.

Edit: Here is a short summary of the article:

Quick Summary of Playstation 5 article:

-Uses AMD's Navi as its base architecture, not specifically using Navi.
-CPU is custom Zen
-Large amount of devkits have apparently gone out.
-Author suggests 2018 release of PS5 is not out of the question based on the amount of devkits released as this is a "sure sign that the launch is getting close". Not definitive.
-VR "goodies" baked in at the silicon level. (My Opinion, not authors: Sony not giving up on PSVR any time soon. VR support inside the PS5 right out of the box)

Some more stuff in there, but doesn't really discuss power of the system.
Mod Edit: Do not post scans of the article, summaries and discussion are fine however.

$100 will pay for itself for the first Youtuber who reports on it. We probably won't have to wait long

I knew Sony was going to get all arrogant and do something crazy like this. So this is what they've slowly been seducing us to with their services like PS+ and PS Now. A $1000 subscription just to be able to read things on your console.

*ducks*

The next PlayStation will have better specs than the PS4, the same controller but slightly better, and will cost $500 at launch. You’re welcome.

I've seen this document and I'll tell you what's in it for the low low price of 5,000 dollars

A grand to find out it's an AMD Ryzen based APU with between 10 and 12tf of GPU performance?

Nah, think I'm good, Chief.

Now I am just curious what else SemiACcurate has behind that paywall that they think is worth $1000 a year sub for and what kind of customer base they have.

I don't know the website, but if they have information that business / corporations could use the thousand bucks is just put on expenses. Companies might subscribe, individuals won't.
