PS5 To Feature Full Discrete GPU Not APU [RUMOUR]

Forums - Sony Discussion - PS5 To Feature Full Discrete GPU Not APU [RUMOUR]

What would be the benefit?
2 sku's from the start, premium one with sli configuration? A 30fps and a 60fps version?

Please let it have and be optimized for an SSD drive, load times are getting out of hand, 4k assets are only going to make it worse.

Let's think of the possibilities: PS5 runs a Vega-based graphics card that we've been hearing about in the GTX 1070 level performance range, with an 8-core Ryzen-based CPU. Sony could push for a more expensive console experience, while providing better than Project Scorpio performance

Fuck I hope not. Would be way too small a jump. Navi, Zen 2, 2020-21, $400, Deus Vult.



I wonder if they should do a PS5 family of hardware at launch, and have the games be forward and backwards compatible. You could have a portable version of the hardware that works like a Switch, and you can have a beefier, stationary version of the console that plays the same games, but with all the effects turned up to the max.

Hard to gauge that. Since the PS portable thing would likely hold the beefier version back. But, at the same time, I think Sony needs to look into covering all its bases.



Do we have rumors about it's name ??

I mean, c'mon ! They can't put another number in chronological order ?!!

Cpu equivalent to a i5 combined with a Vega gpu with 16gb ddr4 would beat most PC easily if in a console. May aswell have a core system with a standard hdd and a premium one with ssd 

 

 

 



...not much time to post on here anymore, used to be some good ol times on VGchartz...

Playstation Fan for life... PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - Steam/Uplay/Origin: Skeeuk

Exclusive: In the hustle and bustle of Computex, I had an interesting conversation with someone who will remain anonymous, about Sony's next-gen PlayStation

"After I had found out what this person did, I had a few questions to ask about the PS5 and what it will arrive as - especially when we look at Microsoft's upcoming Project Scorpio console. The first question I had was "will it feature a discrete GPU" to which I received a smile and a "I can't say exactly", and then I said would it feature an APU like Project Scorpio, and then there was a "no"."

What the hell is a "discrete gpu"  and who the frick thought Sony would release PS5 in 2018 while PS4 is still selling so well

A discrete GPU is a GPU that is by itself, separate from the other components in a system. Prior to 8th gen, most consoles had discrete GPU's, but XB1 and PS4 went a different route, they both use APU's, which is a CPU and GPU combined into one chipset with shared access to a unified pool of memory.

So its a lonely gpu, how sad 😢. Good easy to understand answer, here have an imaginary rep 👍



With AMD's Infinity Fabric, I wonder if they can slap a Ryzen CPU die on there, as well as multiple Navi GPU die's? As of now, it seems that they can use it to tie multiple CPU's together, or multiple GPU's together, but I haven't seen anything talking about a hybrid design with both just yet. That way you wouldn't have an APU, but you also wouldn't have a separate discrete CPU and GPU. It would basically be a hybrid, so someone could say it's not an APU, but they wouldn't be saying it's definitely discrete either.

If PS wants another large leap around 2020, planning to use an APU will make that much tougher if not impossible depending on the node available at that time. If they want a large jump, they would need to go discrete as far as we know, or come up with something else, like a hybrid, if it can be done.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.
