    Interesting! I thought use of chiplets for at least the CPU cores was likely. Die size looks to be in the ballpark of 400mm2: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comment...math_analysis/

    I'm currently trying to decide whether to upgrade to a new ryzen pc at the end of the year (Probably 4000 series when its out along with a 5700 or better) or buy an Xbox Series X. Either way I guess AMD are happy! They really mopping the floor with CPUs and GPU wise outside of the ultra high end (I can't afford) competitive.

    "2x SuperSpeed USB-A ports,"

    Don't you mean USB-C

    Interesting, where was that said? Consoles are typically released leading up to Christmas but Christmas 2021 seems way too far off for this hardware.

    YEp It wouldnt make any sense to show off the silicon NOW for Xmas 2021 . I am getting a bit fed up with all this Hoopla over the chips inside, its what the games are , and how much they cost. £60+ seems to be a new benchmark. these are for xmas 2020 , Santas sac will be exploding with SOC's .

    I don't think so, it definitely appears to be the more common place USB-A ports.
    I think this is a good thing in all honesty, as the ports don't need to be super compact on a games console, and I expect that USB-A will be more robust in the long-term; USB-C are quite small and thus relatively delicate compared to USB-A.

    Also, don't forget that a mechanical USB-C port doesn't tell you anything about the electrical USB standard used. Not all C ports are fast, and not all A ports are slow.
