First, let’s talk about the power of the PS5.
The PS5 has a custom processor at 3.5GHz. If you compare it to the PS4’s 1.6GHz Jaguar cores, that a huge leap. It also enables 3D audio, 4k at 120fps, up to 8k video. Woah!
For the GPU, it is a customized AMD RDNA2, that has 32 compute units at 2.23GHz max. It was also said that PS5 will have a Ray Tracing feature. To simplify it, PS5 games will have a realistic light that adapts.
To see ray tracing in action here’s a video from Lucas’ Youtube channel.
Another thing worth noticing is its custom 825G SSD that could make loading screens non-existent. 15 second loading time would be reduced to just 0.8! That fast! Like, 15x fast!
Compared to the PS4 Pro’s 60 fps, the PS5 boasts a native 4k resolution at 120Hz. That’s a huge upgrade. It can also run at 8k. I know that there aren’t a lot of cheap 8K TV out there. But future-proofing the console wouldn’t hurt, right? Good job, Sony!
The PS5’s Tempest 3D Audio Tech will let you know where your enemy is just by sound! You can utilize the sound of your surroundings in your decision-making in-game. That’s sick!
The PS5 accessories will bring you a truly immersive gameplay thanks to its revolutionary features like haptic feedback and adaptive trigger.
