Sony Reveals Full PS5 Hardware Specifications


After months of waiting for details related to PS5, Sony has finally revealed the complete specifications and hardware details of Play Station 5. PS5 will be launched as a successor to PS4 and will be coming in this holiday season.

As for the specs, PS5 will feature a custom eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU clocked at 3.5GHz (variable frequency). The CPU will be coupled with a custom GPU based on AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture hardware that promises 10.28 teraflops and 36 compute units clocked at 2.23GHz. 

As the company promised in 2019, PS5 will come with a custom 825GB SSD which will be coupled with 16GB of GDDR6 RAM. The company planned to upgrade from HDD to SSD hard drive for faster loading time and for extreme increment in the performance. A previous demo showed Spider-Man loading levels in less than a second on the PS5, compared to the roughly eight seconds it took on a PS4.

Well, that’s not the end of specifications. It will come with support for USB hard drives. However, they are only there to increase the system’s ability with expandable storage for PS4 games. 

It’ll also feature a previously announced 4K Blu-ray drive and will still support discs, but those games will still require installation to the internal SSD. The custom SSD inside uses a standard NVMe SSD, allowing for future upgrades, but you’ll still need an SSD that can meet Sony’s high-spec standards here — at least 5.5GB/s.

Apart from this, the company is already promising that the new hardware will add support for both 8K gaming as well as 4K gaming at 120Hz. There’s also a plan to add “3D audio” for more immersive sound, an optional low power consumption mode to save energy, and backward compatibility with PS4 titles.
