A redesign of the PlayStation 5 is reportedly being prepared for 2022


A new version of PlayStation 5 is coming soon. This is information brought by the Taiwanese portal Digi Times, which is protected by industry resources. Due to the variable reliability of the magazine, we cannot take the report as confirmed, but it would also be a shame to omit it completely.

According to her, Sony is planning a hardware refresh of the console in the second or third quarter of 2022. The plan is said to mean the start of production, so it should take some time for the new version to be distributed.

However, a hardware redesign does not mean that the console changes its appearance. In this case, Sony aims to reduce production costs, so the PS5 should retain the chassis and performance, only thanks to more advanced technology will be cheaper to produce. But, of course, it is possible that, following the example of Slim versions from previous generations, the streamlining of hardware will be accompanied by a slight change in appearance.

In addition, the juicy gossip says that the revision should be produced using 6nm technology (the current APU is based on the 7nm TSMC manufacturing process). The smaller manufacturing process means that the chip can be more energy efficient and can accommodate multiple transistors on the same surface. Engineers can then use this to optimize costs. But it makes sense, even if we look at other news from the industry, where it is rumored that AMD should start the production of its new desktop processors at 6nm TSMC production this year.

But the year is a long time when a lot can change, especially in the current state of the semiconductor industry, which is struggling with a shortage of almost everything. The PS5 supply, as well as competing consoles and other hardware, is not catching up and rapid improvement is not expected in the coming months. God knows how it will all turn out in the end.
