See the new Playstation 5, coming this year

Sony in a live presentation last night finally revealed more details about the new PlayStation 5. 

Sony’s PlayStation architect Mark Cerny assured fans that the new gaming console will be a big improvement over the PlayStation 4 and 4 Pro.

The console is set to feature 10.28 teraflops of graphics processing power, with an AMD RDNA 2 GPU with 36 compute units clocked at 2.23GHz, with variable frequencies.

The CPU will then be a custom 8-core AMD Zen 2 unit clocked at 3.5GHz, which can also run at variable frequencies.

It will have a 16GB of GDDR6 RAM into the console, along with an 825GB SSD that the company said will offer super-fast loading times.

The SSD will be able to deliver bandwidth of 5.5GB/s and users will be able to expand their storage with an NVMe SSD via an expansion slot, or using an external HDD via USB.

The console will also be able to process 3D audio and aims to engulf users in sound, as opposed to just playing it at them through a stereo set-up.

Sony has previously stated that the PS5 will be capable of delivering 8K visuals and ray-tracing support.

Other features include backwards compatibility with PlayStation 4 titles, support for VR gaming, and optimisation for cloud game streaming.

Additionally, the company has said it will introduce haptic feedback in the new controllers for the console.

Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will be released in the holiday 2020 period.
