Sony’s Next Console Will Use AMD Graphics Technology, Report Says

Forbes is reporting what may be the first substantial news about Playstation 4. According to former employees of AMD, Sony may be ditching Nvidia and switching to AMD for their next console’s graphics. The significance of this decision, assuming it is real, is unknown, though Microsoft already uses AMD technology in the Xbox 360.

Neither AMD nor Sony would comment on the report, and Sony continues to deny working on a new console despite persistent rumors, however, as Forbes notes, AMD has recently identified the gaming industry as an area of growth for the company. It will likely be some time before we know for certain, as Sony will not be making any kind of console announcement at this year’s E3.

As long as its the GPU not crappy AMD CPU’s… as benchmarks shows Intel are in the lead at the moment, unfortunatly not as cheap as AMD.

I’m pc gamer with Phenom….hey, at least it sounds cooler than Sandy Bridge… lol.

Actualy i understand the AMD GPU as a console version, they are pretty good for the power consumption lately. Hell two 6850′s can play max settings in hd on most games right now and only use about 380w in full load. No longer you need 1000w psu to get maxed settings.
