AMD tipped to handle graphics for next Sony console -

There are rumours flying around that Sony has dumped Nvidia for AMD in its upcoming next generation console. 

AMD already has its technology under the bonnet of Microsoft's Xbox 360. It, however, missed out on a contract win with the Playstation 3, which went to Nvidia.

Gamers will argue about anything you can think of, but it is generally agreed that the PS3 has sharper graphics. Still, Sony is said to be working on a next generation console, possibly with AMD processors.

AMD CFO Thomas Seifert, points out Forbes, said in an analyst call that gaming will bolster revenues for the Sunnyvale company.

Another console win would be big news for AMD. An AMD spokesperson said: "As you can imagine, we can't comment".
