It’s been a few tough weeks leading up to this for PlayStation fans. But alas, here we are. Sony has finally revealed the specs of the PS5, their upcoming next-gen console. The event was headed by Mark Cerny, lead system architect at Sony Interactive Entertainment.

Like Microsoft’s Xbox Series X, the PlayStation 5 console will feature an AMD Zen 2 CPU and RDNA 2 based GPU. Here are the official specs:

CPU8 Core AMD Zen 2 CPU at 3.5 GHz (Variable Frequency)
GPU10.3 TFlops, 36 CUs at 2.23 GHz (Custom RDNA 2) with raytracing
Memory Bandwidth 448GB/s
Storage825 GB SSD at 5.5 GB/s

The reveal comes in right after Sony announced the event yesterday. What’s interesting is that the PS5 has access to a faster pool of shared memory, which kind of makes up for slightly lesser powerful GPU when compared to the Series X. This lines up perfectly with our speculation.

“Teraflops”? Huh.

Some people will be upset at the lower teraflop number of the PS5 when compared to Microsoft’s console. But, as we mentioned above, Sony has better memory implementation, which when taken into consideration should be able to match Series X in terms of compute power.

  • Main Custom Chip on PS5
  • Custom I/O of PS5
  • PCIE Gen 4 Confirmed
  • Uses of raytracing in PS5

Sony’s PS5 console will launch during Holiday Season 2020.
