Why doesn't Sony give their SoCs cool nicknames anymore like "emotion engine" & "reality synthesiser"

      No.
      Their last 3 consoles have used off-the-shelf hardware.

        Nothing in the PS4 or PS5 is "off the shelf"
        They have IP blocks from AMD in semi-custom SoCs. There is no equivalent to these monolithic dies on the market.

          they have a few custom things in PS5 like their hardware asset decompressor that decompresses data on the fly from SSD to "VRAM"

          That's a blatant lie though.

          None of it is actually designed by Sony.

            What a moronic post. So what? Hardware is hardware.

            pretty sure the kraken decompressor was at least architected by cerny

            That wouldn't make it off-the-shelf. You can't buy the PS5 APU or southbridge chips, or even the flash controller I think. It's all custom.

            I don't know about the PS5 chips specifically but the Xbox One and Series chips have popped up on weird chinese motherboards with their GPUs disabled

            True enough, but usually binned chips that didn't make the test grade.

          Which is not actually used in any game to any significant effect ever, because devs are incompetent.

            they're incompetent yet somehow the ps5 has the same performance on modern games as a 4060

            The PS5 GPU is literally a 6700:

            According to techpowerup, the 4060 is 3% faster. I commend the PS5 devs for their amazing optimization skills

            Don't use the word "literally" if you don't know what it means, moron

            a 6700 can play 1440p 144fps native no sweat on pretty much every game
            PS5 kneecaps everything to 30fps or 60fps with FSR
            I don't think they're the same at all

            the ps5 can play games at 1440p @120hz but support is limited. Most games run at 4K60, they get kneecapped at 4K30 when you turn on raytracing

            Because they're just AMD's old PC shit packaged in a single chip.

            >Most games run at 4K60
            Do not fricking kid yourself lmao, the most demanding games in performance mode don't even land above 720p, let alone anything close to 4k. Even then they might not hit a consistent 60 either.

            you must actually be delusional if you think any game runs like that

          Yea it's called the fricking GPU. It's been doing texture decompression for literal decades. "b-b-but muh ugly ass codec no gamedev likes to use, looks horrible, has massive blocky artefacts, fricks with chroma, and is worse than just rendering a cut scene in real time" bink is a meme sold to midwid senior leads and publishers with exclusivity contracts and bribes. This isn't just my opinion. I hate to do say this meme; however, "just google it" with site:pleddit. Everybody who had to deal with this fricker hates it. The only reason you're even aware of it is because sony was too cheap to license mpeg. Your entire shill piece on here... yea... you're bragging about sony being too cheap to license a good codec on a platform that probably already had an mpeg video decoder on it.

            Kraken is a general purpose lossless codec, it's not for image or video compression and has nothing whatsoever to do with Bink.

    Sony was taken over by demon worshiping vampires about 15 year ago. Those vampires only care about extracting maximum profit and the blood of innocents.
