    If Microsoft was able to make 2 diffferent APUs for Xbox Series, I don't see how it would have being inconceivable for Sony to also design two different APUs for PS5, whatever their respective end purpose.

    From Reddit, a supposed Square Enix dev that shared tons of precise info about SE games and next gen, like FF7R on PC after 1 year or 2 (but not on Xbox), new Deus Ex for Next gen, FF16 for next gen, enhanced version of Avengers for next gen (like GTA5 on PS4/XB1) and :

    Yes i Know, Just stating how conservative was Sony with unpatched games in the Pro, keeping clocks and functional units. Until months later they didn´t allow Boost mode.
    There were some rumours that the delay was in pàrt because of BC, who knows.

    Well It doesn´t matter, both are late 2020 designs, Zen and Navi based and have BC at least with prior generation.

    I still dont believe the second Microsoft SOC is strictly for consoles. So unless Sony are going into PC hardware building, the MS example does not carry over.

    If I had that account, I would write "7TF, $599" then grab popcorn and watch the world burn.

    Microsoft is planning to sell both SOCs, if we're talking about the two skus. That's some difference. The only actual data we have about PS5 is suggesting around 9 TFLOPs. There's lots of qualitative talk about being "close," which could mean it's been upgraded, or it could mean people don't notice much difference between 9 and 12 in terms of visual output, or it could mean that the Xbox is not 12 TFLOPs for retail. I don't really know, and I don't think any of the supposed insiders do either.

    I’m just going to lock myself in my shed until further notice.

    IN MY DEFENCE it was the top tweet that came up when I opened the Twitter app.

    Fine I’m an idiot.

    Shed.

    Neither SOC is strictly for consoles. Arden isn't even strictly for gaming.

    Lockhart will be used in Xcloud to replace the Xb1 blades.

    Arden will be used in Azure for enterprise compute / workspaces.

    Interesting.

    Kinda speculated the Lockhart thing and Xcloud....but not the Arden thing and enterprise compute.

    Theoretically it would drive down the prices somewhat if they are ordering in larger volumes.

    So it will be the opposite of the current xcloud blades that are slightly more powerful than current 1S?

    Developers will have to optimize for it the same way they would for a console.
