The PS5❤ (or PlayStation 5) is the PlayStation of the next generation, with a release date set for late 2020.
Although Sony remained tight-lipped about its new console, it gave us some juicy details about what we could expect from its next-gen offer.
We have already had our first look at the DualSense PS5 controller, which features some impressive-sounding features like haptic feedback, adaptive triggers and an integrated microphone.
But what is arguably most interesting about the DualSense controller is its radically different look and space-age black-and-white color scheme, which suggests the PS5 design will look something similar – and will be a big departure from its predecessors.
Just as important as the DualSense Controller are the PS5 spec discussed at Sony’s March reveal event. Lead system architect Mark Cerny provided us with a deep dive into the PS5’s system architecture, revealing the technical inner workings of the PS5.
We’ll cover them in more detail later, but for now the PS5 is rocking an AMD Zen 2-based CPU with 8 cores at 3.5GHz, 16GB of GDDR6 memory and a custom RDNA 2 AMD GPU that puts out 10.28 TFLOPs of processing power.
