A report from T3 states that Sony has filed a patent that relates to a product with two GPUs. After Nvidia announced its SLI technology, they have used dual GPUs in the PC segment. The dual system was not the developers’ choice, as most games only need a single GPU at a time. With few exceptional cases like Tomb Raider reboot Trilogy support SLI or dual GPUs. However, the console’s efficiency does not increase in linear proportion with the system’s added GPUs.
As per the patent, the system is a ‘scalable gaming device’ where the 2nd GPU will be integrated with the first one. Furthermore, it also says that the system is capable of gaming and cloud streaming.
