It’s now been a few years since the release of Sony’s PlayStation 5 console and its predecessor is likely a few more years away at least. However, that hasn't stopped the PlayStation 6 rumour mill from spinning.

That being said, in November 2023 the release window for the PlayStation 6 was teased and with the possibility of it arriving in the very near future, some fans believe that the PS6 could be released way too soon. It’s worth keeping in mind that the PlayStation 6 hasn't been officially announced by Sony but the next-gen console may have been teased during the recent State of Play event with the announcement of an upcoming game from Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding developer, Hideo Kojima.

As reported by TweakTown (via the YouTube channel, Moore’s Law Is Dead), the specifications for the PlayStation 6 have potentially been revealed with AMD reportedly providing the chip to power Sony’s next-gen console which will boast a speculated 4K at 120fps and 8K at 60fps gaming experience.

Known leaker Moore’s Law Is Dead claims to know “100%” that AMD has secured the deal to power the PlayStation 6 as well as the rumoured PlayStation 5 Pro. The latter is said to be announced this year with its release planned for late 2024 or early 2025.

It’s speculated that the PlayStation 6 will be powered by AMD’s current-gen Zen 4 architecture or even the next-gen Zen 5 architecture. It’s also claimed that the PS6 will have a super fast 5GHz+ processor speed. TweakTown explains that for the PS6 to meet the next-gen demands it will need to double the VRAM of the PS5 from 16GB of GDDR6 to 32GB of GDDR7.

In terms of SSD, TweakTown hopes that the PS6 will favour PCIe Gen5 which will provide up to 14GB/sec (14,000MB/sec). If this speculation turns out to be true, let’s just hope that Sony provides the PlayStation 6 with at least 2TB to 3TB of storage at launch out of the box.

At this time, the information provided in this article has not been officially confirmed by Sony. So we should take all unconfirmed rumours with a pinch of salt until proven otherwise.
