Sony’s livestream event – “The Future of Gaming” Show – was an hour-long showcase of the games coming out for the next generation Playstation 5 console. While it showed all the upcoming games from different developers, including a few comebacks, the whole video was a slow burn to the PS5’s hardware reveal.
The Playstation 5 will come in two different versions: a standard model with an Ultra HD Blu-Ray drive, and a Digital Version without the drive. Peripherals include a DualSense Controller Charging Dock, HD Camera, Media Remote, and a new Headset.
As revealed in Mark Cerny’s technical deep dive, the Playstation 5 will have the following specs:
- Custom AMD Zen 2 CPU with a frequency capped at 3.5GHz
- Custom RDNA 2 AMD GPU capped at 2.3GHz, 10.3 Teraflops, Raytracing support
- 16GB RAM GDDR6 25-bit
- A minimum of 825GB SSD with speeds of 5.5GB/s
- contains a custom flash controller with a 12-channel interface

While no price has been revealed, the release date is still slated for Holiday 2020.
