DigiTimes before going to press alert:
“AMD 7nm chips to be adopted for next-generation PlayStation “
“AMD has obtained 7nm chip orders for Sony’s PlayStation 5 (PS5) consoles, with shipments scheduled to kick off in the third quarter of 2020, according to sources at IC backend firms.”
If true, this may be one of the reason why AMD can guide for $4 B plus H2 for 2019 because of the new accounting rule for revenue recognition. For example, when new rule was adopted, holiday console revenue were partly shifted to Q1 and Q2 of 2018 from H2 2018.
Furthermore, if AMD will start shipping PS5 chips in Q3 2020, then can Xbox chips be far behind?
