Yesterday, Sony held an online presentation where the company revealed many new details about the upcoming Sony PlayStation 5 game console.
The detailed technical specifications of the console have finally become known. Sony's new product will receive an 8-core AMD Zen 2 processor with a frequency of up to 3.5 GHz and an AMD RDNA 2 graphics core with a capacity of 10.28 teraflops. The console will have 16 GB of GDDR6 RAM, the speed of which will reach 448 GB/s. The device will be equipped with an 825-gigabyte SSD drive and a 4K UHD Blu-ray drive.
The presence of an SSD-drive will allow games to run much faster and take less storage space. The patch installation process will occur almost instantly. Sony has left users the ability to increase the memory size of the game console independently. Now gamers can use any company-approved model of HDD or SSD-drive format NVMe.
Unlike the previous generation of PlayStation consoles, all the RAM in the PS5 will be used for games. In the early versions of the set-top box, some RAM was not involved in the process, as it was used as a backup area.
The manufacturer promised backward compatibility with the PlayStation 4, but most likely, not all games will be available immediately after the launch of the PS5.
Earlier, we wrote that Microsoft published detailed specifications for the Xbox Series X game console as well.
