In Theory: is PS5 powered by an AMD Gonzalo processor?
N4G News –
– The 1X does NOT use liquid cooling. It uses a vapor chamber, which is OLD. All copper pipes for cooling use this same method and are in every heatsink. A vapor chamber simply goes a little bit further(again, it’s not new at all).
If newer things were necessarily hotter, then modern electronics would be nuking us right now. This is newer hardware on 7nm fabrications. More performance per watt. The thing is that neither console has had any issues with heat. The PS4 is louder because of a smaller fan(smaller fans actually move more air despite being smaller). But, smaller fans also means louder. The only big complaint for the PS4 is the fan noise. So, I think it will be fixed with the PS5.
I personally wouldn’t mind a $500 price tag. I think that’s the most a console should be. I think Sony would be willing to take a loss on the console to give consumers a bigger reason to buy it, because they’ve done this several times in the past since most income is made from licensing games for the platform. I’d normally be quite doubtful they wouldn’t strike the $400 price tag again. But, seeing how commonly adopted 4K screens are now, it looks like they may push for as much 4K performance as possible. AMD is really pushing for mass production to cut costs themselves and Sony is their biggest partner. If that extends to PC gamers on newer AMD cards then they will finally be closer to where they have wanted to be with the PC market.
