With Sony finally beginning to talk about PlayStation 5 in an official capacity, AMD has now chimed on the subject, discussing its partnership with the format holder and the 'special sauce' that powers it. 

Speaking with Jim Cramer, Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, spoke of how 'proud' the company is to be part of the PS5 package, although wouldn't give any hints as to when the next-generation console will arrive in stores.

'We are so honoured and proud to be part of Sony's next-generation PlayStation,' Su commented. 'This has been a really long-term partnership with them. We love gaming. We think gaming is a really good secular growth market. What we have done with Sony is really architect something for their application, for their special sauce. It's a great honor for us. We're really excited about what the next generation PlayStation will do. And happy to be a part of it.'

Sony confirmed last month that the PS5 will not be released before April 2020, so if it is out next year, we're probably looking at a November release going by past hardware cycles.
