Since the PlayStation 5 was released last year, we’ve seen a massive supply issue for the console. Despite that, it seems that Sony is working on an even more powerful PS5. According to a recent patent, which was spotted by popular insider Zuby Tech on Twitter, Sony is already working on a new console in the coming days. While we haven’t learned a lot about the console from the patent, it still gives us a fair idea about what people can expect from it.
Sony Interactive Entertainment filed a patent on October 7th, which illustrates “a device having a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), may be configured to selectively run in a normal mode or a timing testing mode,” Zuby Tech tweets. “In the timing testing mode, the device is configured to disrupt timing of processing that takes place on the GPU while running an application with the GPU and test the application for errors in device hardware component and/or software component synchronization while the device is running in the timing testing mode.”
The patent name states that it is for a Scalable Game Console CPU/GPU Design For Home Console And Cloud Gaming. Let’s break it down part by part. The scalable part goes hand in hand with the design of the patent, which shows two APUs in the console. This likely suggests that the console will be much more powerful than the ones we have already seen.
