Su added that revenue from this particular processor rises faster than any mobile processors in AMD’s history.

Other PS5 Details

In other PS5 news, Digitimes recently reported that Sony’s back-end supply sources said that the life cycle of the next-gen console is five years. This is interesting considering that Sony’s gaming consoles usually have between six and seven years of life cycle.

Sony is rumored to hold another PlayStation State Of Play in August. Until now, fans are waiting for the company to announce the price and the specific release date of the PS5.
