Man, all that was.... useless. "2018" lol. I hope the 2020 release still stands as some have suggested. Would be perfect.

This site would be fucked if that was a $1000 screen cap from my site, with that level of information. I'm just saying.

I'm also hearing bad things about Navi and have hopes that Sony skips it.

Reality check, $1,000 is nothing for your typical mid to large gaming/computer/graphics developer, publisher, engineer, manufacturer, etc. It's just thrown under expenses, and worth it for the intel you get from the articles and forum.

About that "powerful as the Xbox One X" part...[citation needed]? Because, that's the first time I hear that Google's console would be THAT powerful.
It's from his podcast, he says it has two SKUs, one as powerful as the Xbox One X and the other less powerful but he wouldn't be surprised if the less powerful SKU was dropped before reveal.

And he goes on and on about how Google moneyhatted this classic game franchise reboot and how the graphics look great and it's like... They really sent you footage/images of a major unannounced game on a fucking unannounced console from fucking Google?

Only you?

Shocking Twist: SemiAccurate is owned by/partnered with Sony and this is a controlled leak and funding for the PS5's development.

Is there a summary?
PS5 comes out Holiday 2018 featuring an APU with a Navi gpu and an 8 Core Zen CPU.

Features much better VR support.

Tons of dev kits are out in the wild.

—————

My thoughts... the PS5 launching 2018 means that it will be built on 10-14nm, ie. It won’t be that powerful. It likely will just have crossgen games for the first two years.

An XB2 in 2020 could be built on 3-5nm, feature HBM2 ram and be significantly more powerful.

Microsoft’s biggest screw up is not making the XB1 compatible with the Oculus, the Vice or their own VR headsets. VR is going to be big next gen and MS allowed Sony to get a solid foothold completely unopposed (though the current PSVR headset and motion controllers are of very poor quality imo, the next ones won’t be).

Bwaaahahaha... 2018?

No chance in hell of that happening. PS5 will launch with Navi GPU arch on the 7nm. For a 2018 launch they will need to ramp up to volume production from the beginning of this year in order to stockpile enough inventory for a simultaneous worldwide launch... only problem is, 7nm isn't yet ready for volume production.

No way Sony launches on a fresh 7nm node. 2019 the 7nm process will be mature, meaning better production yields thus a stronger product. Fall 2020 could even allow for a launch on the 7nm EUV process, which I've heard is a real game-changer in semi-conductor manufacturing process technology. No reason to rush out the PS5 with the PS4 selling so well, and every reason to wait it out and launch with a more capable system.

Yep, 2020 please.

if it's this close to being released it's going to look bad for the Xbox One X, because the faster CPU will make a massive difference (the Jaguar CPUs in these consoles is really slow, I think a lot of people underestimate just hot bad it is compared to Zen) and the current gen including the X can be struggling to hit 30 when the PS5 is easily hitting 60, and the X will be barely 1 year old, so it would be unrealistically to expect a new, competitive Xbox for a while.

but who knows, it would also mean the PS4 Pro had a short life... but... I think the upgrade is needed, specially for their VR ambitions.

My uncle works at Sony and none of this is accurate to what he said about the next Playstation which will be called the Super Nintendo 3
