[ET] No, the PlayStation 5 Doesn’t Use AMD’s ‘Ryzen 3600G’

Quote:
Last week, PlayStation guru Mark Cerny gave us some details on what to expect for Sony’s next-generation console. The stats were enticing — an eight-core CPU, SSD storage as standard, and a 7nm SoC out of the gate all imply that Sony will put position itself aggressively to challenge Microsoft for performance leadership (Sony’s PlayStation 4 held the performance crown against the Xbox One in the vast majority of games up to the launch of the Xbox One X).

Somehow, this disclosure got a little twisted out of the gate. Wired UK has run a piece with multiple puzzling statements in it. To quote:
Hmmm...

why are they comparing retail prices to manufacturer price?

the APU used in PS4, while it only costs $100 from a manufacturer's point, it'd be well above $200 if it was retailed as a desktop or laptop APU.
why? because its far larger than their standard APU, although it came with jaguar cores, furthermore it comes with 40CUs which is more than a standard Polaris chip.

if AMD did release a Scorpio "barebones" board, i'm willing to bet that it'd cost at least $300 at retail price.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

The definition of “APU” is probably going to be shifting in the near future.

Chiplets Have Arrived.

Just because we can’t have a Dual Chip GPU doesn’t mean we can’t have separate CPU, GPU and IO chips on one package.
There is no guarantee that Next Gen consoles will be using Chiplets, but if they do it would be a huge leap forward in manufacturing efficiency compared to existing products, and it would mean they can use the biggest GPU die and CPU die at the same time without the same old manufacturing constraints that would normally make a design like that prohibitively expensive.

C'mon Joel Hruska, put a little effort into your next hatchet job. This article brought absolutely nothing to the table.

I mean they're tech journalists that can't even take the time to get proof readers.. so... (I refuse to believe they're so bad at life that the proof reader misses it. I think they're allowed to submit without any sorta read through)

the 3600G was rumored to have like 20 CU's at most anyway, even with fast GDDR6 or HBM that's not enough CU's to push the performance they are targeting.

1800X / RX 570 ~ 2500u / Vega 8

They use custom designed parts, meaning while the name is different and it may be an APU etc. the base building blocks are taken from other existing products/IP. The performance is similar to similar desktop parts. Only Apple PCs are just like any other PC now made up from non custom CPU/GPU/... parts. Consoles still go the custom route.
