Moles say Sony eyeing AMD for PlayStation 4 chips

Graphics switch on the cards?

Application security programs and practises

Sony seems set to switch graphical allegiances for its PlayStation 4 console after erstwhile AMD staffers hinted that the processor designer may be heavily involved in the next-generation console's development.

The PlayStation 3 currently utilises GPU technology from graphics guru and AMD arch-rival Nvidia, former AMD employees suggested this might not be the case going forward, Forbes reports.

AMD CFO Thomas Seifert has already identified gaming as a key revenue driver for the chip company in 2012. Seifert may be referring to Microsoft's impending 'Xbox 720', since the Redmond outfit already rolls with AMD for the Xbox 360 console.

Then again, the original Xbox used Nvidia graphics tech, so there's a precedent there for a switch of provider. Microsoft might change too, especially if Sony leverages the latest AMD GPU.

Don't forget, though, that neither Sony nor Microsoft have said anything about what technology they might be including in future consoles. ®
