A new link from an industry insider claims that Sony’s PlayStation 5 will be powered by an eight-core Ryzen CPU powerful enough to run games in 4K at 60 fps. Since this next-generation video game console is reportedly going to have backwards compatibility, it does make sense to use the most powerful hardware for a smooth gaming experience regardless of the game’s original hardware. The slated PS5 release date in some time during 2020, but nothing has yet been confirmed with E3 2019 looming. Read more for a video of what the PS5 user interface could look like.
There’s even more speculation that the PS5 will not be released in 2020 because of the declining life cycle of the PlayStation 4, especially with “The Last of Us Part 2” and “Ghost of Tsushima” set for release next year. That would put the PlayStation 5 in direct competition with its predecessor in terms of sales performance.
