PS5 custom chip to enter final production

Sony, the Japan-based consumer electronics company is said to be bringing its customer AMD CPU to testing next week and then to manufacturing after.

According to Digitimes, they expect production to peak by August and that the CPU could boost up to 3.5GHz. Last week Jim Ryan, PlayStation Boss said that Sony was aiming for value and not necessarily the lowest price.

PS5 Recap:

So far, Sony has shared the PS5 Specs, PS5 DualSense Controller, that PS5 will support PS4 games, an Unreal Engine demo on PS5 developer hardware and the PlayStation Studios brand, but little has been shared about the what the Console will look like.

Well, we may have to wait a little longer to see what the PS5 looks like as this event’s aim is to showcase the games of PS5.
