AMD building graphics for the PS4
« on: February 26, 2012, 01:13:16 PM »
Forbes has reported today that Sony's upcoming PlayStation 4 console will move away from Nvidia and instead use AMD for the GPU.

Sony used Nvidia to power the graphics of the current generation's PlayStation 3, while Microsoft uses AMD in their Xbox 360 and is expected to use them again for their next Xbox.

The note comes via former AMD employees, says Forbes.

Both companies declined comment, and Sony went as far as to not even acknowledge that the PS4 is coming, at all

While the move would be significant, the report must be taken as speculation as moving to a custom AMD Radeon graphics chip would likely kill backwards compatibility with PS3 games, says Xbit, unless Sony pays dual royalties to AMD and Nvidia.
