The x86 APU chip AMD is producing for PlayStation 4 is the “most powerful” APU the company has built to date, according to marketing boss John Taylor.
“Everything that Sony has shared in that single chip is AMD [intellectual property], but we have not built an APU quite like that for anyone else in the market,” Taylor told The Inquirer.
“It is by far the most powerful APU we have built to date. It leverages [intellectual property] that you will find in our A-series APUs later this year, our new generation of APUs, but none that will quite be to that level of sheer number of cores, sheer number of teraflops.”
AMD will offer a cut down version of the PlayStation 4 APU chip, minus Sony’s technology, to consumers later this year.
