PlayStation 5: Price, Specs, Launch Date and Games

PlayStation 5, the much-awaited gaming console from Sony was revealed on 12 June 2020. The console was to be revealed on 4 June 2020 initially but it was postponed because of the ongoing protests. The console has finally been revealed along with some games that will be available from the launch date and later.
Let’s see the different aspect of PlayStation 5 that we know till now.

PlayStation 5 Specs

PS5 is the fifth console of the PlayStation series, it has been 7 years since the last PlayStation was released. The hardware specifications were already revealed months ago, the same reflected that PlayStation 5 will be a powerhouse and will be significantly more powerful than PS4.
Here are the PlayStation 5 specs.

“Tempest” 3D AudioTech

As we can see from the PlayStation 5 specs, things have improved drastically. In the past two generations, that is, PS3 and PS4, Hard Disk were used but the same has changed in PS5, Sony has decided to use an 825GB SSD which will have approximately 100 times faster read speed than HDD which had 50 to 100MB read speed. As a result of this, we will be able to switch between games pretty fast without even closing one.

Along with this, another major leap will be in the Video Output, PS5 will support an output of 4k 120Hz which is quite remarkable and makes the console future proof. This all will be possible because of PS5 GPU which works on AMD Radeon™ RDNA 2-based graphics engine and supports ray tracing technology.
