PS5 specs revealed


Sony has revealed the hardware specs for its upcoming PS5 console.

During a livestream this morning, PlayStation 5’s lead system architect, Mark Cerny, took a “deep dive” into the console’s architecture. For instance, we learned that the system’s SSD will allow for load times that are 100 times faster than PS4.

The PS5 will feature 8x Zen 2 Cores at 3.5GHz. Meanwhile, its GPU will have 10.28 TFLOPs. The system will have 16 GB of GDDR6 RAM. We also learned that the PS5 will have an 825GB SSD with an expansion slot available for additional storage.
