Features of PS5
Following are some advanced features to be expected in Playstation 5.
It’s all new guys, the more beautiful the more premium and eye catching. A Black curved structure inside the white external panels makes a really tremendous matching. Opening panels are widened to slim from one end to the other end. It also has a blue light in between the structure which doubles up the beauty. Sony said that “For the overall design, we wanted to deliver a console that’s bold, stunning, and unlike any previous generation of PlayStation.” & they did so.
CPU & GPU
Hardware specs of PS5 are the most powerful specs especially in the catalog of consoles. It will be packed with Eight-Core AMD Zen 2 CPU at 3.5GHz based on 7nm technology. While on the GPU side, Sony has chosen Custom RDNA 2 with 10.28 Teraflops & 36 Compute Units at 2.23GHz for PS5 having various advanced features next-generation gaming.
Sony is using the DualSense Controller this time for PS5. The controller will feature “adaptive triggers” technology on R2 & L2 triggers to improve the control mechanism of shooting games. The controller will have haptic feedback as well to feel effects accordingly during gameplay. Apart from that, the PS5 Controller will feature motion sensors, touchpad, microphone, integrated speaker, headset jack, and a USB-C port USB-C support for charging purposes.
List of PS5 accessories includes some new and advanced items. Like HD Camera, a new Wireless Headset called Pulse 3D and a Charger for Controllers. As I discussed earlier in specs portion that PS5 will support 3d audio. So the new Pulse 3D will do so accordingly along with noise cancellation features. Accessories also include a media remote for providing functionalities of voice command control.
Solid State Drive (SSD)
PS5 will come with 825GB of NVMe Solid State Drive (SSD) as its storage option. Which will have a positive impact on the load time of games and other operations. Just imagine its amazing specs that a game loading in 15 seconds on PS4 will load in 0.8 seconds on PS5 with this SSD. In the near future, Sony may consider Cloud-Based system as a storage option to remove the hurdle of limited storage.
