His arguments are very logical.
The current generation of Sony and Microsoft game consoles has been very significant for the market. Firstly, it was within the framework of this generation that both companies made their devices much more like PCs. Secondly, this generation in the middle of the life cycle has undergone a major update, which previously was not.
PlayStation 5 Pro and Xbox Series X Pro will not? Former Microsoft top management believes that updated consoles in this generation will not appear
Many believe that now this will become the norm and that several years after the release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, their significantly improved versions will enter the market.
However, the former head of the marketing department of Xbox does not think so. Albert Penello (Albert Penello) wrote that in the new generation of consoles Sony and Microsoft are unlikely to be the same update as in the current one.
Panello believes that there are a number of reasons for this development. Firstly, there will be no special need for the appearance of updated versions of PS5 and XSX, since these consoles were initially designed for 4K at 60 or even 120 fps, and 8K resolution is unlikely to become at least as much popular in the next three to four of the year. Secondly, this implies difficulties with the marketing justification of the updated models.
Well, the third important point is that, according to Pamela, it will not be possible to realize some significant leap in productivity in the form factor available for consoles in the coming years.
I do not see the possibility that even after three years in the console form factor it was possible to implement a system with a performance of 20-24 TFLOPS. Switching to the 5 nm or 3 nm process technology will be too expensive, and the size of the APU, even in the case of 3 nm, should significantly increase the number of execution units.
In addition, Panella believes that not only the GPU will have to be improved, but also the CPU and memory, although it is worth remembering that in the same PS4 Pro the graphics processor has changed relative to the PS4, but not the CPU (only the frequencies have increased).
