In April this year Sony revealed in an interview with Wired a few details for its upcoming next-gen console – the PlayStation 5.
At the time the Japanese company noted some of the internal components of the console, but remained mum on what the gaming experience would be like, as well as what kind of performance the PS5 (unofficial name) would muster.
While not serving up every aspect of the PlayStation 5, Sony did drop a few more details about the console during a strategy meeting for the 2019 financial year.
More specifically the firm touched on the PlayStation Now aspects of the PS5, noting that it would be an “immersive” and “seamless” experience thanks to the console featuring a vastly improved graphics setup and cloud computing system.
Added to this a select group of media were shown comparative load speeds for the PS5 and the PS4 Pro, with the former yielding 10 times faster loading, and performance equally better when coping with graphically-intensive gaming.
The cloud computing aspect of the PlayStation 5 could prove interesting. Despite Sony not mentioning further detail in that regard, the company recently announced a partnership with Microsoft and their Azure platform, which could see the firm head deeper into the world of streaming.
As for some of the components that the PS5 will sport, Sony says a third-generation octa-core AMD Ryzen processor is present, with it featuring a 7 nanometer architecture. This will be paired with a ray tracing supporting Radeon Navi Graphics card. As for the other elements of the PlayStation 5, we’ll have to wait for more detail to come out of Sony.
Hopefully a formal announcement will arrive at PSX later this year.[Source – Engadget]
