Rumour: Next PlayStation in works, using AMD Graphics

It was bound to happen, after all we haven’t had a new console rumour this week. So what is it this time?

Well, apparently, Sony has a new console in the works and it’ll be using AMD graphic technology.

According to former AMD employees, via Forbes, the processor designer will play a key role in the new product.

To add to this, in an article profiling AMD’s new CEO Rory Read, Forbes claimed work has already begun on the project.

“It’s Read’s job to make sure AMD doesn’t screw up its slate of new products,” Forbes said, “which includes a hush-hush-effort to put its graphics chips in Sony’s still-unannounced new game console – and shake off the once scrappy company’s years-long funk.”

The Xbox 360 already uses AMD tech inside it’s box, while the PS3 uses graphics powered by Nvida. Could that all be about to change?

We don’t expect Sony to talk about a new console at this year’s E3, although chances are that Microsoft will reveal something.
