Next-Gen PS5 and Xbox AMD Chip Almost Ready for Production

Well known source, TUM_APISAK posted the details of the AMD Gonzalo SoC on Twitter. The Gonzalo chip is expected to power the next-gen Xbox or the PS5, or perhaps both the next-gen consoles in the coming years. The Gonzalo SoC was earlier spotted in January leading to speculations that AMD will once again lend its expertise to Sony and Microsoft for their next iteration of gaming platforms.

The leaked chip codenamed, “ZG16702AE8JB2_32/10/18_13F8” is a qualification sample, as denoted by the Z. This phase will be followed by production and then finally shipped to the respective clients. The one spotted earlier back in January this year was an engineering sample (v2), codenamed “2G16002CE8JA2_32/10/10_13E9“. Both the SoCs have eight cores with the ES pointing to a base clock of 1 GHz and a boost of 3.2GHz. It’s not certain whether these will be the newer Zen2 cores or the older Zen+, but my best guess is the former. The PCIe ID associated with Gonzalo’s codename points to an on-board Navi 10 Lite GPU clocked at 1GHz.

Today’s leaked sample, however, puts the CPU’s base clock at 1.6GHz while the GPU has also been changed to a different Navi part with a rather hefty clock of 1.8GHz. This makes the qualification sample roughly 60 and 80% faster than the earlier spotted SoC, and there’s a very good chance that the final specs will be quite similar.

Now, as far as my opinion goes, this will either be the SoC powering the standard PS5 console, aiming for 1080p60FPS or 4K30FPS (possibly with checker-box rendering or the like), or the Xbox Lockhart which will be the successor to today’s Xbox One. The Xbox One X, on the other hand, will be succeeded by a more powerful chip while the streaming console, Maverick should be slightly tamer.
