In the middle of 2020, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic that is changing the world, Sony has finally resolved the curiosity of Playstation console lovers. Yes, the Japanese company is showing off its console.
One of the most awaited news for console gamers, apart from when the bonus will drop, is information about the Playstation 5 (PS5). Many are looking forward to what the designs, specs, and prices of Sony's next-generation consoles will look like.
A few weeks later, Sony announced the specifications and pricing for the console. So, what is the design of the PS5? What are the specifications? When will the PS5 be released?
The PS5 is said to have a very large body, extra-fast SSD, and capable DualSense controller technology. The dimensions of the PS5 are indeed large, namely 160 x 66 x 106 mm. Compare this to the PS4 Pro which has a size of 327 x 55 x 295 mm. PS5 is twice as tall as PS4 Pro! Therefore, you need a large enough space to accommodate Sony's newest console.
Apart from that, the PS5 has an advantage over the DualSense controllers. It has haptic feedback and adaptive trigger capabilities that make other console controllers feel out of date wrote IGN.
Haptic feedback is able to provide a different controller sensation in the game. Suppose it is raining, the controller will vibrate a little as if you are raining.
PS5 is also said to be able to increase graphics capabilities thanks to its ray-tracing capabilities, where the shadow graphics in the game feel more real. So, the Playstation 5 is one of the most awaited gifts for gamers in 2020.
PS5 comes with a futuristic design. This future console is predominantly black and white, in line with the controllers. Just like the Xbox One Series X, Microsoft's future console, the PS5 is designed to be placed in a vertical or horizontal position. Lie down or stand.
If set up, you'll see a tattered, but slightly curved, PS5 console. At the top of the PS5, you can see Sony installing a heat dissipation system with USB Type-A and USB Type-C ports on the front. Also, one of the PS5 variants has a slot for Blu-ray game discs.
Not only the PS5 console, but Sony is also showing off various accessories for the console. Some of these include the DualSense charging station, a new HD camera, a Pulse 3D wireless headset, and remote control for controlling media on the PS5. Interestingly, all these accessories come with a design that matches the PS5. It is not known whether all these accessories will be removed along with the console later.
PS5 itself with an AMD Zen 2 octa-core processor with a speed of 3.5 GHz. The processor is clearly faster than the PS4, namely the AMD Jaguar 1.6 GHz.
The PS5 RAM itself is 16 GB. Another technology that the PS5 specification carries is AMD's rDNA 2-based GPU. The GPU has 36 Computing Units and 10.28 Teraflops of computing power.
The PS5 will also be equipped with SSD-based storage media. The loading speed on the PS5 itself will certainly be much faster than the PS4 which is equipped with an HDD. The PS5 itself uses an SSD with a capacity of 820 GB which can still be expanded with an additional SSD.
Other capabilities of the PS5 are the ability to play games up to 8K quality, 4K at 120Hz refresh rate, and 3D audio.
