Sources: AMD Created Navi For Sony's PlayStation 5

Sources say that the PS5 will use both AMD's Zen and Navi graphics architecture. No word on whether it will be a SoC or separate components. The eyebrow raiser in all this is that not only does Sony's new machine use Navi but it was actually created for Sony. 

Saying that AMD's then Group boss and chief architect ( Raja Koduri  now at Intel) dedicated two thirds of his engineering team to Navi alone. Leaving RX Vega to suffer.

    Apparently there are some who have claimed that the story was true and some who have said it was false.  But it's not entirely clear what the claims mean.  It's very plausible that AMD would have let Sony have some input on the architecture if that was the price of getting Sony to use AMD hardware for the PlayStation 5.  It's very unlikely that AMD would have decided to never again release a new architecture after GCN in 2012 except that Sony asked them to.

    It's more likely that the PS5 announcement will happen at that time. I would be very surprised if we got new consoles in 2019.
