PlayStation 5 hardware specs announced

The new console promises ultra-high-speed SSD and custom hardware design

Posted on

Sony has announced the hardware details of the upcoming PlayStation 5 console.

Mark Cerny, lead system architect for PS5, provided an update on the planned main features of the system. PS5’s ultra-high-speed SSD and integrated custom I/O system were developed with the goal of removing barriers to play – specifically loading screens. Additional GPU power will allow for higher resolution in games, but a major new feature that benefits the visuals of games even further is ray tracing.

PS5 will also allow games to offer a much deeper sense of immersion through 3D audio. Lastly, the system will support backwards compatibility, with almost all of the current top 100 PS4 titles playable at launch on PS5.

The official PS5 hardware specs are as follows:

CPU x86-64-AMD Ryzen™ “Zen 2”
8 Cores / 16 Threads
Variable frequency, up to 3.5 GHz
GPU AMD Radeon™ RDNA 2-based graphics engine
Ray Tracing Acceleration
Variable frequency, up to 2.23 GHz (10.3 TFLOPS)
System Memory GDDR6 16GB
448GB/s Bandwidth
5.5GB/s Read Bandwidth (Raw)
PS5 Game Disc Ultra HD Blu-ray™, up to 100GB/disc
Video Out Support of 4K 120Hz TVs, 8K TVs, VRR (specified by HDMI ver.2.1)
Audio “Tempest” 3D AudioTech

The PlayStation 5 console is planned for launch this Holiday 2020.
