    Sony Has New console in works, AMD Building Graphics cards for it

    Sony Has New Console In The Works, AMD Building Graphics - Forbes


    Sony is working on an as-yet-unannounced new gaming console, former AMD employees say, and the processor designer may play a key role in the new product.


    AMD’s graphics technology is already used in Microsoft’s XBox 360 console. However, Sony’s PlayStation 3 — introduced in 2006 — relies on graphics technology from Nvidia.


    AMD declined to comment on the project. Sony Chief Transformation Officer George Bailey also declined to discuss Sony’s new console, or even acknowledge its existence.


    However, at AMD’s analyst day last month, AMD Chief Financial Officer Thomas Seifert identified gaming as one of several trends that will drive revenue growth at AMD in 2012.


    Why the hell is everyone using AMD.


    Nvidia is the way to go.

    OK so wait... Nobody confirmed this but some "former employees" of AMD? How the hell do they know that's what Sony is using this for at all? Or better yet if Sega tells us that Microsoft is making a Xbox1080 already... Just because you worked with them a year ago on one project does not mean you have any actual knowledge or proof that any such thing is happening. This is not even a rumor but more of just some hearsay at this point...

    Nvidia is the way to go.
    1) Larger manufacturer, drives costs down

    2) AMD builds "to spec," Nvidia doesn't. <--- Big reason

    3) Nvidia is actually pretty limited in regards to capabilities, the Tegra is great, don't get me wrong... But Nvidia isn't as well versed as AMD is when it comes to larger system architectures.
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.

    There are so many different next-gen console rumors floating around that I just do not believe anything that I read.

    Yea, I agree. Until I see it at E3 or some major tech convention, it's just all rumors and speculations.

    I am the Old King.
    Show me thine strength and the strength of thine souls.
    Prepare thyself, brave knight.

    As long as it's the video card and not the processor. Anything with an AMD processor in it might as well be used for target practice.
