Rumors that Sony is preparing a PlayStation 5 Slim game console have already surfaced more than once, and here’s a new piece of data on this score: as the source writes, the PS5 Slim may appear in 2023.
Of course, the PlayStation 5 Slim will be both more compact and lighter than the current PlayStation 5. The console is credited with the updated AMD hardware platform – 5-nanometer. The current one, we recall, uses 7nm AMD components: a CPU based on the Zen 2 architecture and a GPU based on the RDNA 2 architecture. Accordingly, despite the reduction in size, the PS5 Slim will be more powerful than the current PS5. Moreover, the same 5-nanometer platform may appear in the potential PlayStation 5 Pro.
According to rumors, Sony and TSMC have already signed a corresponding agreement, but there are no official comments on this matter – and they are unlikely to appear this year. But if everything is really as presented, then the supply of 5-nanometer SoCs to Sony should begin at the end of 2022, and the set-top box itself in stores is likely to appear in the fall of 2023.
