Let’s see Sony PS-5 specs and facts
PS5 (or Sony PS-5) is that the next-generation PlayStation, with a release date lately 2020, and although Sony has remained tight-lipped about its new console, it’s drip-fed us a couple of juicy details on what we will expect from its next-gen offering.
We recently got our first check out the DualSense PS5 controller, which boasts some impressive-sounding features like haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and a built-in mic. But what’s 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 can be an enormous departure from its predecessors.
Just as important because the DualSense Controller is the PS5 specs 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 additional detail down below, except for now know that 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.
In terms of features, we all know the next-gen console will have ray-tracing, a super-fast SSD, a built-in 4K Blu-ray player and can be backward compatible with an enormous swath of the PS4’s game catalog. So far, the PS5 lives up to the hype.

Sony finally lifted the hood on the PlayStation 5 during its first official PS5 reveal event, giving us a far better idea of the specs the next-gen console will offer. But what can we think?
What’s interesting thus far is Sony’s commitment to custom silicon, with a full, specialize in raising gaming capabilities to the subsequent level, without alienating developers now comfortable with developing on the PS4. Custom hardware within the PS3 proved to be a difficult element for devs to urge their heads around, but the PS5 aims to be as developer-friendly as possible.
