Phil Spencer showed up at CES and stated that Microsoft fully intends to stick with AMD for the next iteration of their Xbox game console. Microsoft has been using AMD for a while and it was heavily prevalent in the Xbox One X. 

Spencer stated during his address:

“As a company, we look at the opportunity in gaming and one of the things I want to say is when we think who our partners are, we think about great companies that do great work, but also do it in the right way. [AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su is] somebody that I respected a ton in this industry and I’ve seen the way [she has] led AMD, and I think having a partner like AMD that works so collaboratively with us on our future technology, but also as a cultural level I think fits so well, it’s awesome to have you as a partner. As we look forward to future platforms that we’re building and work that we’re doing, the partnership and the innovations that we’ve seen in the past have led to what we’ve been able to do today, I think they’re going to be critically important to our future endeavors. I’m really looking forward to showing those to people more in the future.”

Spencer didn’t state anything else about a future Xbox console but at least we know that there will be technology consistency in their next iteration. Sony is also currently utilizing AMD while Nintendo is partnered with nVidia.
