Sources in the Taiwanese supply chain told DigiTimes that Sony is likely to adopt a 7nm CPU and GPU for its next-generation PlayStation. This new console is expected to hit the market in the second half of 2020.
The sources from the IC back-end services sector noted that the processors' packaging and testing will be handled by Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASE) and Siliconware Precision Industries (SPIL).

With GlobalFoundries abandoning the development of 7nm process, AMD has been outsourcing 7nm chip production to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and the volumes are expected to make AMD one of the top clients of the Taiwan-based foundry.
