in a Sony’s CFO Hiroki Totoki’s recent earnings call, The company has purchased 22 million AMD chips for it PlayStation 5 game console. Allow Sony to complete its estimated 22 million sales deadline before the end of this year, and completely avoid chip shortages as a whole, as Totoki said.
It’s really surprising that Sony can get all 22 million chips without any problems. We are not sure how the company can get so many chips so quickly, but we suspect that AMD may give priority to the production of console chips instead of its own CPU, especially RDNA 2 based graphics cards.This will explain why Nvidia is able to Dominate AMD completely Annual GPU market share.
Unfortunately, this is where the good news for PlayStation 5 ends. Demand for consoles continues to rise, and all 22 million units should be sold out all year round like hot cakes.
Sony warns Bloomberg Report A few months ago, this supply would not correct itself until after 2022, and at this time there is still more than a year away. Totoki said that even if Sony acquires more equipment and components, it is still difficult to keep the PS5 on store shelves.
But Totoki does hint that Sony needs to increase production anyway to ensure that any game consoles remain in the store.
On the positive side, Sony will be able to reach the 22 million deadline this year. Let us hope that the company will have similar results next year.
