Rumor mill: Does Sony’s reasons for skipping next year’s E3 include the PlayStation 5? That’s the rumor put forward by the same redditor who predicted the company’s decision, and they’ve also revealed some interesting alleged details about the upcoming console. 

On the same Reddit thread where they said Sony would avoid E3 before any official announcements were made, RuthenicCookie wrote about the long-rumored PlayStation 5. They claim it will be announced sometime in the middle of next year, with the full reveal coming at a later PlayStation Experience Event. The PS5 will then launch in either March or November 2020.

RuthenicCookie describes the PS5 as a monster, a “4K/60 stable and at the same time kinda monster,” adding that it features a Ryzen 8-core CPU, which aligns with previous rumors. Back in April, it was claimed that the console would also use a custom GPU based on AMD’s upcoming Navi architecture.

The Reddit user mentions that most developers already have PS5 dev kits—another rumor we heard earlier this year—and that the machine will cost $500 at launch. Games-wise, RuthenicCookie says three big upcoming PS4 titles—Death Stranding, The Last of Us Part II, and Ghost of Tsushima—will all be PS5 launch games. We still don’t know if backward compatibility will be present, but it seems a safe bet.

Additionally, the PlayStation VR is also getting a successor. The current version’s breaker box is being moved inside the console, while the PSVR2 will have a built-in camera. Moreover, new PlayStation Move controllers are in development. Sony is also said to be testing virtual reality gloves.

All this is just rumor, though RuthenicCookie’s previous accurate predictions do lend credence to the claims. They also called Bioware’s Anthem “a mess” in its current state, and said it will again be delayed, with the February 2019 launch date getting pushed back.

Hey, you know who this is? It's ya boy, Speed Weed. It is interesting to see Playstation consoles are catching up to the PC performance. Perhaps this could be a poor college gamers device for $500.

That might be a pretty hard price to beat. But in 2 years, tech will have advanced even more, so maybe not by then. Guess we'll find out.

Best case is 12nm but it unlikely as 12nm to me is a stop gap node and 14nm is going to be bulk forwards for a while. 

 

Heck i didnt even read the expected date of march 2020 and i still expect Zen 1 to be sold.

i would say atleast zen+, I can see why zen2 would not be used do to time line.

that fan render looks terrible. 

muh specs 

Gaming and HTPC (reparations)- ASUS 1080, MSI X99A SLI Plus, 5820k- 4.5GHz @ 1.25v, asetek based 360mm AIO, RM 1000x, 16GB memory, 750D with front USB 2.0 replaced with 3.0  ports, 2 250GB 850 EVOs in Raid 0 (why not, only has games on it), some hard drives

Screens- Acer preditor XB241H (1080p, 144Hz Gsync), LG 1080p ultrawide, (all mounted) directly wired to TV in other room

Stuff- k70 with reds, steel series rival, g13, full desk covering mouse mat

All parts black

Workstation(desk)- 3770k, 970 reference, 16GB of some crucial memory, a motherboard of some kind I don't remember, Micomsoft SC-512N1-L/DVI, CM Storm Trooper (It's got a handle, can you handle that?), 240mm Asetek based AIO, Crucial M550 256GB (upgrade soon), some hard drives, disc drives, and hot swap bays

Screens- 3  ASUS VN248H-P IPS 1080p screens mounted on a stand, some old tv on the wall above it. 

Stuff- Epicgear defiant (solderless swappable switches), g600, moutned mic and other stuff. 

Laptop docking area- 2 1440p korean monitors mounted, one AHVA matte, one samsung PLS gloss (very annoying, yes). Trashy Razer blackwidow chroma...I mean like the J key doesn't click anymore. I got a model M i use on it to, but its time for a new keyboard. Some edgy Utechsmart mouse similar to g600. Hooked to laptop dock for both of my dell precision laptops. (not only docking area)

Shelf- i7-2600 non-k (has vt-d), 380t, some ASUS sandy itx board, intel quad nic. Currently hosts shared files, setting up as pfsense box in VM. Also acts as spare gaming PC with a 580 or whatever someone brings. Hooked into laptop dock area via usb switch

Zen2 and Vega 7nm APU could be a real possibility actually but still too expensive for sony I think

I’d say it’ll be 14nm zen 1. There must be some  great value to be had there and may be at  globalfoundarie. And that’d still be a big jump from the current console cpus. 

Bleigh!  Ever hear of AC series?

I hope they'll focus more on the framerate this time around than those impossible to run 4k graphics. Even 60fps would make most games infinitely more playable

I knew it. I mean it was expected pretty much. Some didn't belives mebwhen I mentioned they'd go with 8 core. It completely makes sense so.

Cautiously looking forward to Sony's next console if it is indeed backwards compatible with the PS4. I would prefer if they would just stop locking games behind hardware, but that's unlikely to happen any time soon. Given that the only Sony consoles I've owned were the PS1 and PS2, it would be nice to be able to play PS4 games (and maybe PS3 remasters?) on updated hardware that would hopefully run the games better as well as whatever new games are on the horizon that will also be locked to Sony's hardware.

This is what would happen if marketing teams designed a product, they would expect the engineering team to some how make this magic work.

(Addressing the article) Yeah yeah cool whatever: talk more about this "custom Navi gpu" since that's the part that's ultimately responsible for like 80% of the performance now that consoles are just conveniently packaged (and conveniently locked down) X86_64 rigs.

I REALLY hope sony isnt planning to hunker down with anything that is out currently. The cpu space is heating up and in 2 years what we have now wont be super relevent for gaming. 

 

Hopefully since zen architecture is backwards compatabile sony will be able to just drop in the reletively latest hardware at time of release.

Navi is 7nm only, and the PS5 will be on 7nm. That's why it's coming out in 2020. They want silicon production costs to be down by then. The March window actually makes a lot of business sense, especially with Microsoft likely following on with Project Scarlett in Fall 2020.
