The PS4 has already made its mark on gamers. More than five years after its release, the console is still among the best out there. However, gaming fans across the globe are looking forward to a more next-generation gaming console. Although Sony hasn’t been able to reveal when they plan to release the PS5, some of its features have been leaked. So here is a quick peek at the new and improved Sony PS5 game console.
Next Generation Specs
With Sony remaining tight-lipped about the features on PS5, so people can only speculate. Seeing as gamers are now ready to play 4K games with high-quality VR experiences, gamers expect the PS5 specifications to be better than PS4’s. Sony will also be looking into beating Xbox One X, which features an eight-core 2.3 GHz CPU they coupled with a 12GB GDDRS memory. In a recent Forbes article, Sony is said to be working with AMD to build a Navi chip exclusive to the PS5.
One of the most glaring shortcomings on the PS4 is the absence of the backward compatibility feature. This rumor is supported by the fact that a patent has already been registered under Mark Cerny who was the lead architect of the PS4. The backward compatibility feature will allow PS5 to be compatible with PS4, PS3, PS2, and PS1.
With the launch of any new gaming console, good graphics processing is a major selling point. Microsoft’s Xbox One X has a processing power of 6 teraflops. Players hope will do Sony better than this. Rumor has it the PS5 will feature 10 teraflops of power.
The Burning Question: Will the PS5 be a Handheld Hybrid or a Standard Box?
Going by PS Vita’s dismal performance and Nintendo Switch’s success, as well as the rising popularity in mobile gaming, it may influence Sony to release a portable PS5.
The fact that PS4 still offers a thrilling gaming experience to its users half a decade after its launch says a lot about Sony’s gaming prowess and attention to detail. Gamers can expect nothing less on the PS5.
