Forbes is reporting that the next PlayStation console may be powered by AMD.
“Sony is working on an as-yet-unannounced new gaming console,” says the report, citing “former AMD employees” and claiming that AMD “may play a key role in the new product.”
The Xbox 360 is already powered by AMD’s graphics chips, but PS3 uses Nvidia technology.
Both AMD and Sony have declined to comment on the story, but, as Forbes states, AMD’s Chief Financial Officer Thomas Seifert recently identified gaming as something that will drive revenue growth at the company in 2012.
Forbes link through to the ‘full story’, here, although there’s little else there apart from a line that says that “work on another yet-to-be-announced collaboration with Sony is under way, potentially unseating Nvidia, which powers the PlayStation 3.”
Sounds a little woolly, but there you go.
