The technology powering the PS5 and Xbox Two will seemingly be showcased at E3 2019.
While it’s unclear if the new consoles will be unveiled at the Microsoft conference and inevitable Sony State of Play stream, we do know that AMD is planning to discuss its next-gen technology.
AMD will appear at the Next Horizon Gaming event to show off its upcoming products and tech.
The event will be hosted by AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su on Monday, June 10 at 11pm UK time.
“AMD president and CEO Dr. Lisa Su will present to a live and global streaming audience details about upcoming products and technologies that will power gaming from PC to console to cloud for years to come.”
With AMD technology powering the PS5, it’s reasonable to assume that we’ll find out more about what next-gen consoles are capable of.
As T3 points out, AMD is also responsible for the GPU powering the Xbox One X, so there’s a good chance it will power the Xbox Two.
Anybody hoping to get a look at AMD’s next-gen technology can register their interest in attending the event by visiting the Next Horizon Gaming website.
Fortunately for the many millions of gaming fans not attending E3, AMD will be broadcasting the presentation on its YouTube channel and Facebook page.
According to PS5 system architect Mark Cerny, the PS5 is more of a revolution than an evolution, although it will share some internal similarities with the PS4.
This means that despite being much faster and more powerful, the next-gen PlayStation will also be backwards compatible with the PS4.
It will also support 8K visuals and will feature must faster loading times.
The console will reportedly have a specialised solid-state drive, which will make loading times much faster.
In Spider-Man on a PS4 Pro, for example, it can take upwards of 15 seconds to fast travel from one location to another. The PS5, on the other hand, will be able to handle the same task in less than a second.
Worlds can also be rendered at far greater speeds, which should inject more pace into games.
Existing PlayStation VR devices will also work with the new console, although Sony is believed to also be working on a successor.
