Despite having no official announcement other than an informal chat, rumors and leaks continue to come about what is next for Sony with the PlayStation 5. The latest rumor seems to clarify some rumors about the specifications, and apparently confirms its continued dedication to AMD.
According to a recent PCGamesN report, a new product code was apparently leaked for AMD's new silicone for the PS5. The code that was found says: 2G16002CE8JA2_32 / 10 / 10_13E9. Inside it, it contains details of what the next generation will have to offer, at least potentially.
2G16002CE8JA2_32 / 10 / 10_13E9 Decoding (update)
2 = ES1
1600 = Sony Custom SoC (PS5?)
2C = TDP
E = Package
8 = 8C
J = Cache size
A2 = A2 Stepping (?)
32 = 3.2Ghz (Boost)
10 = 1.0Ghz (Base)
10 = iGPU Clock? (1Ghz?)
13E9 = PCI-ID: Navi 10LITE (GFX1000 / 1001) .// t.co/NaLjNqNsvB

As with all leaks, it is important to take the information with a grain of salt. Especially in this case, where the source is not so well established. That said, the most important thing is that this seems to confirm that Sony will use AMD Zen once again, although it is a somewhat outdated version, since the production started before the new model was launched.
Although it is not a great update, it also seems to be above what the PlayStation 4 Pro offers, which should not be surprising. The point of a new generation is better than the previous one, so hardware upgrades are a must.

From the previous leaks we have also learned that Sony is considering compatibility with previous versions for its next console, as well as an incredible conceptual art made by fans.
