At least one Twitter user – Alcoholikaust – has managed to get some hands-on time with a Sony PlayStation 5 devkit and some next-generation DualShock 5 controllers. No concrete details have been released, but so far, we know that it will be powered by a semi-custom 8-core AMD chipset based on third generation Ryzen architecture, a Radeon Navi GPU, a built-for-purpose SSD storage system, 3D audio; backwards compatibility with PS4 games / PSVR hardware, and 8K resolution TV support. Read more for the full image and additional information.
Ray tracing will be achieved with its GPU hardware rather than at a software level, and 8K TV support means far more detailed as well as larger textures. A bespoke SSD drive is claimed to be 19-times faster than traditional solid state storage methods, which could mean the instalation of games will be mandatory if there is an optical drive included. Physical PS5 games could use 100GB optical disks, inserted into an optical drive that doubles as a 4K Blu-Ray player.
