The next generation console wars are beginning to heat up. With Microsoft already having selected AMD to supply the graphics processor for their next generation console, now it is Sony’s turn to lock in a graphics processor supplier.
Forbes has reported that a number of ex AMD employees have let the cat out of the bag, revealing that Sony is considering switching to AMD for the next generation consoles graphics processor, currently the PlayStation 3 uses NVIDIA for its graphics power. If AMD is successful this will give them the royal flush in the console world, with Microsoft and Nintendo already using AMD graphics.
While both Sony and Microsoft are still in the initial stages of developing their next generation consoles, Microsoft made the decision to use AMD before Christmas, putting Sony at least a few months behind.
