Chinese electronics company TCL said it expected the PlayStation 5 Pro and the new Xbox Series console to launch in 2023 or 2024.
The company, which is tipped to rank second in the global TV market in terms of sales in 2019, revealed its forecast for the console industry on Wednesday in a presentation given by PPE.pl’s page PPE.pl. Poland attended. During the press event used to introduce TCL’s latest TVs, a company representative said they expect “Gen 9.5” to be released in 2024.
The manufacturer suggests that the upcoming Console consoles will deliver 60-120 fps at 2160p resolution and provide gaming at 8K resolution, which can be said to be the highest since. before to now. They also said they expect the new PS5 Pro and Xbox Series consoles to come with the upcoming AMD Radeon RX 7700 XT GPU. Due to the current inability of platform owners to meet demand for PS5 and Xbox Series X due to global chip shortages, TCL’s forecast for next-generation hardware refresh is likely to be incorrect. matter, unless redesigned consoles offer a manufacturing advantage.
Piers Harding-Rolls of Ampere Analysis said that he fully believes the new system will meet the needs of the vast majority of gamers, but given the current situation, the launch of PlayStation 5 Pro will be difficult, he hopes to have could launch by the end of 2023. “I don’t expect this based on any specific knowledge of the product, but it’s a reasonable estimate of when the new machine will likely be. marketed normally three years after launch,” the analyst said. “However, it is possible that the launch time will be slower than expected for many other reasons. Therefore, I think it’s more likely that the PlayStation 5 upgrade will arrive mid-cycle, late 2024 at the earliest, when that would probably be a nice time to announce to fans.”
Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki said last year that the company was looking at various solutions to help it deal with the global shortage of hardware components, including the ability to change the design or find other party supplies. The topic was brought up again during Sony’s full-year financial results meeting earlier this month. During the event, Totoki was asked what measures Sony is taking to combat the supply shortage, which Intel recently warned could last until 2024.
While Totoki’s response didn’t specifically mention the PS5, he said that “In different regions, we changed our procurement sources and also changed our designs among other regions. So we have enough capacity to deal with this situation.” Last May, it was reported that Sony would begin designing and reproducing the PlayStation 5 in 2022, which would feature AMD’s “new semi-custom” 6nm CPU. Taiwanese business website DigiTimes claims that suppliers including design studio TSMC are planning to start production of the PlayStation 5 with the newly announced design launching in Q2 to Q3 of this year.
Also this month, Sony registered a new model PS5 in Japan. The company recently received a build certification for a new design like a new ‘CFI-1200’ model family with an attached wireless device. A modified PlayStation 5 model was also released in 2021, focusing only on changing some components in the machine structure, while the specifications remained unchanged. Hopefully fans will soon see information about the new generation PlayStation 5 Pro and Xbox Series launching next year.
