AMD Gonzalo SoC For PS5 And Xbox Anaconda Spotted Again, Last Consoles?

AMD Gonzalo SoC

The AMD Gonzalo SoC was spotted a while back and we talked about how this could be the chip that would power the upcoming consoles, the PS5 and the Xbox Anaconda. New details have now been spotted in a benchmark and while the performance numbers are not there, it is worth noting that the base clock of the chip os 1.6 GHz.

While 1.6 GHz is not impressive when compared to PC, this is an APU that is meant for consoles and AMD CEO Lisa Su has already confirmed that AMD will be powering both consoles. She mentioned that both companies have their own secret sauce but it is more than likely that the AMD Gonzalo SoC will be based on AMD Zen and the graphics part will be based on AMD Navi.

We know that the AMD Gonzalo SoC that will power the upcoming PS5 and the Xbox Anaconda will have 8 cores and 16 threads. This is not something out of the ordinary as the current generation of consoles also has 8 cores but better architecture means better performance. Talking about the upcoming PS5 and Xbox consoles, it is possible that these will be the last of their kind.

Cristiano Amon, the president of Qualcomm talked about video game streaming and he claims that streaming is the future and that the PS5 and the Xbox Anaconda are going to be the last console. The following is what he had to say in this regard:

There’s no question – in our view – that the cloud is the new console. You are just gonna start playing on any device, on any screen. That is going to be the future of gaming.

Talking about the upcoming Xbox consoles, it seems that there will be more than one. The basic specifications seem to be the same but the difference is in the amount of RAM. The specifications of both the consoles are as follows:

Xbox Lockhart specs
CPU: Custom 8 Cores – 16 zen threads 2
GPU: Custom NAVI 4+ Teraflops
RAM: 12GB of GDDR6 memory
Storage: 1TB NVMe 1 + GB / s SSD hard drive

Xbox Anaconda specs
CPU: Custom 8 Cores – 16 zen threads 2
GPU: Custom NAVI 12+ Teraflops
RAM: 16GB of GDDR6 memory
Storage: 1TB NVMe 1 + GB / s SSD hard drive

While we do not have a release date for these consoles and speculation would have us believe that they will release in 2020, seeing how we have started to get these leaks, it is possible that these consoles are closer to launch then what we originally thought.
