AMD: Both PlayStation and Xbox engineers are cooking a “secret sauce”

In a conversation about AMD and business in technology, AMD CEO talked partnerships with Microsoft and Sony in gaming

AMD CEO Lisa Su dropped a curious knowledge bomb about future PlayStation and Xbox consoles. In a conversation with CNBC’s Jim Cramer she said:

We're working with both Sony and Microsoft on consoles. They both have their specific secret sauce that we're helping them do.

Neither Microsoft, nor Sony publicly denied working on a new generation of consoles. There are rumors that Sony might release PlayStation 5 in 2021 or later. Microsoft’s Phil Spencer has already confirmed development of new consoles and a game streaming service.

In case if you want to find that CNBC interview and listen how exactly Su spoke about the “secret sauce”, maybe you should reconsider. The conversation itself was filled with soft balls and obvious answers, so you might not want to waste 10 minutes of your time listening to Cramer and Su exchange blank statements about technology.

Here is the only intriguing point from the interview (besides “secret sauce part”) we’ve picked up. When Cramer asked Su a personal question, she started speaking about her background as engineer and then shared a story about modern engineers in general. Turns out, if you are in business of creating semiconductors, the decisions you make don’t have real-life impact for 3, 4 or 5 years. Think about what it implies: most of the components in the shiny GPU you’ve recently purchased were originally designed back in 2015 or even earlier. That’s an interesting thought to process.
