According to the site’s sources, suppliers, including TSMC Semiconductor Foundry, are planning to start production of the new PS5 model between the second and third quarters of 2022.
As noted by Kantan Games analyst Dr. Serkan Tutu, supply chain sources at DigiTimes say the new PS5 will come with a “semi-custom” 6nm AMD CPU, which will be cheaper than the 5nm currently used.
Sony recently said that the supply of PS5 consoles is unlikely to improve significantly in the current fiscal year, which ends March 31, 2022.
However, during the investor conference after Record published PlayStation financial resultsSony Chief Financial Officer Hiroki Totoki said the company is studying several solutions to help it address the global shortage of hardware components, including the possibility of changing device designs or outsourcing to secondary suppliers.
“As I said before, our goal is to get more sales than the PS4 [durante o segundo ano]. But can we greatly increase the supply? Totoki said no, it’s unlikely. “The Semiconductor shortage It is a factor, but there are other factors that will affect the volume of production. So for now, we’d like to aim [bater] Sales of the second year were 14.8 million, which was the second year of PS4.
When asked specifically about semiconductor scarcity, which affects all consumer electronics industries, from smartphones to cars, Tutoki indicated that Sony has the means to deal with this. “For example, perhaps we can find a secondary resource, or by changing the design, we can deal with it,” the executive said.
