Sony PS4 to use AMD CPU?

Last week the rumors were flying that the Sony PlayStation 4 may be using a AMD GPU instead of NVIDIA. This week the rumor is that the PlayStation 4 might be ditching the Cell CPU and going with an AMD CPU instead. This could mean that the PS4 will be using a CPU/GPU on one chip (like the AMD Fusion) which would probably make sense and make it easier for game developers to port games between consoles and PCs. These are all still rumors, and due to the fact that the PS4 is still quite a ways away who knows if this will actually materialize or not. Kotaku has all the details.

The PlayStation 4 will not use Sony's Cell processor nor any possible successor to the vaunted chipset that was introduced to the world through the PlayStation 3, gaming industry sources tell Kotaku.

What we're hearing from sources follow a Forbes rumor last week that chip-maker AMD would make the graphics chip for a PS4, a shift from the PS3's use of a graphics chip from AMD rival Nvidia.
