Sony PS5, Microsoft Xbox Series X|S half-generation upgrades are expected to be released next year

Earlier this year, TCL stated at a conference in Poland that the half-generation upgraded versions of Sony PS5 and XSX|S are planned to be launched in 2023 or 2024. However, former Xbox executive Albert Penello believes that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S|X generation do not have much need to introduce mid-term upgrades, because current mainstream TVs can still only support 4K 120 frames (the biggest improvement of PS4 Pro and Xbox One X is to provide 4K support).

Today, a well-known whistleblower @Tez2 said that due to the poor response of "GTA: Trilogy", Rockstar Games canceled the planned remakes of "Red Dead Redemption" and "Grand Theft Auto IV", so about the mid-term upgrade The rumors are back in full force, which has also been confirmed by @Kotaku.

Most AAA game studios should have received half-generation upgrade kits by now, and (at the latest) should receive them at the beginning of the new year.

It is worth mentioning that when someone asked him if this was definite news or a prediction, he replied that it was definite news.

Of course, it's too early to think about the next generation of consoles, but the industry currently believes that both Sony and Microsoft will use new custom chips based on the AMD RDNA 3 architecture, and the 7000 series graphics cards based on this architecture will be launched on November 3 this year. The RDNA 3 features and improvements that have been confirmed so far include:

  • 5nm process node
  • Advanced chiplet packaging process
  • Redesigned CU Architecture
  • Optimized graphics pipeline
  • Next-generation AMD Infinity Cache technology
  • Enhanced ray tracing performance
  • Granular adaptive power management
  • More than 50% performance/watt improvement
