Wow, kind of expected Renoir to compete alright with Skylake parts, but not really with Ice Lake i7s. When they come out with the 65W desktop-ified version (mid-'20?) just hope there's supply and the price isn't nuts! :p

Hey,there we go,so that's gonna be the CPU in the PS5/xboxsx.
8 ryzen cores at ~2Ghz (with possible boosts?? ) with a modified iGPU.
Lol wut?

The only thing it will have in common with the PS5 is Zen2. But it's not even the first Zen2-based processor on the market, so I don't get your point.

The PS5 obviously will not be constrained to 15 Watts, so base/boost clocks will be different, and I expect the PS5 to enable SMT.

The iGPU will not simply be modified, it'll be a completely different animal. This still uses Vega, but the PS5 is going to be Navi-based, and that thing will be huge - probably be on par with a RX 5700.

Finally the memory will be completely different - GDDR6. This will impact not only GPU performance, but also probably hamper the CPU, to some extent (due to higher latency).

So, at least you got the Zen2 part right, and I think we know the PS5 will technically have an APU.
