As it is known, both Sony Interactive Entertainment and Microsoft rely on AMD as a partner for the new consoles. As AMD assured in the current annual report, the chips of the PS5 and Xbox Series X are on schedule despite the coronavirus crisis.
Quite a while ago, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Microsoft announced that the two companies were once again relying on AMD to help them build their next-generation consoles.
In May this year, AMD officials again announced that the production of the relevant chips had been ramped up to enable the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 to be launched on time. A topic that Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, took up again in the current annual report.
As Su said in the course of the quarterly report, the chips of the PS5 and Xbox Series X are on schedule despite the ongoing coronavirus crisis. There is therefore no fear that the COVID19 pandemic will delay the manufacture and delivery of the chips. Microsoft and Sony Interactive Entertainment recently reaffirmed that the course has been set for the next generation consoles in this Christmas season.
Thus, the two console manufacturers are among the companies that are defying the current crisis. However, it is still unclear how many units of the Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 will be available for market launch at the end of 2020.
So far, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Microsoft have not commented on the possible release dates and the prices of the two consoles of the next-generation consoles.
