Sony has just revealed more details about the upcoming PlayStation 5 a few hours ago. The next generation of the PlayStation brand console is still going to be release on holiday 2020 – the schedule is reported to be unchanged, despite the coronavirus pandemic. This does somewhat make sense, as the Chinese manufacturers are resume working overtime after the pandemic subsides in the country.

In their 1 hour-long presentation, Sony has revealed in detail the architecture of the new console, along with the specific specs. Its overall design is still in the dark, however.

The PC5 would have these specs:

Overall, the SSD was the number one most requested demand from both players and game developers. The PS5’s SSD load time is 5GB per second – 50 to 100 times faster than the PS4’s hard drive: For example, it would take the PS4 20 seconds to load 2GB of data, while the PS5 would take only 0.27. The load time would lead to a lot of improvements in both gamer’s experience and game development – players would get a highly reduced load time, while game developers would not have to reuse graphics assets to reduce load time anymore.

The SSD would also help reduce RAM load as well – PS5 games can just retrieve game data right from the SSD. With the PS4, various games have to store some of the game data in RAM to reduce load time due to the slower hard drive. There would also be a docking bay to install another SSD if you need more storage.

Cerny then talked about the PS5 console's custom chips and how they'll provide backward compatibility with the PS4. AMD worked on incorporating the previous console's logic and features into the customer PS5's processors. Cerny said they tested the top 100 PS4 titles on the PS5 and almost all will be playable on the PS5 at launch. Regarding compatibility for PS3, PS2, and PS1 games – it is likely that the PS5 would run them on software simulation if they are available.

Lastly, the CPU and GPU – they were both developed by AMD, with 10.3 teraflops produced by a 2.23GHz Graphics process and a 3.5Ghz processor. For more information about the likely designs of the PS5, please check out this article on Gurugamer.
