AMD CEO was very excited about the sales of next-generation game consoles

It is said that after the release of the Sony PS5, there has also been a phenomenon of scalpers buying and increasing prices and changing hands. After all, for many gamers, Sony’s next-generation game console is very attractive.

But whether it is a good sale of Sony game consoles or a good sale of Microsoft game consoles, AMD CEO Lisa Su is a happy thing.

After all, PS5, Xbox Series S, and X all use AMD’s chip solutions. The good sales of these game consoles also indirectly increase the shipments of AMD-related products.

Lisa Su said in an interview:

We’re thrilled with how the console launches went. You’ve heard separately from Sony and Microsoft, their discussions about the size of the launches and the reception of the products. From our standpoint, if you think about it, with just the amount of new hardware that had to come into place — millions of units of both consoles, or all three consoles — that needed to ship, it came together very nicely.

As far as what we’ve learned, there is higher demand than we thought, and we’re trying to put more capacity in place for that. But we’re very happy with the launches, with the partnerships with both Sony and Microsoft. They have somewhat different strategies, but we’ve partnered very well with both of them. This is a big cycle. That says a lot about how much technology we’ve been able to integrate into the console form factor.

The performance of AMD graphics cards used by Sony and Microsoft may not be as powerful as the new graphics cards, but it is not a big problem for game consoles.

The reason is that although AMD has launched more powerful graphics cards, the current chip industry as a whole is facing shortages and will not be alleviated in a short time.
