A review of the PlayStation 5 specifications
Sony wants its new console to last for many years on the market and not be left behind quickly. The technical specifications of the machine leave no doubt: it will be a very powerful console and, above all, very fast. On the one hand, we will find in both PS5 models 10.28 TFLOPS of power accompanied by an AMD Zen 2 CPU, 8 cores @ 3.5 GHz with variable frequency. As far as RAM is concerned, a 16 GB GDDR6 memory capable of running at 448 GB / s has been incorporated; over a hundred times the speed of a PS4.
PS5 and accessories announced. Not confirmed what the output console includes.
If you look at the bandwidth of your SSD memory, it will be 825 GB with a speed of 5.5 GB per second, an uncompressed data transfer that, when compressed, will reach up to 8 or 9 GB per second. The disc player model will also support 4K Blu-ray players. Tempest Engine technology will allow us to listen to superior quality 3D audio without the need to resort to high-end devices. PlayStation 5 will be able to make the console’s audio unit use only a fraction of a Jaguar core to achieve 7.1 surround sound quality. The Tempest Engine can be subjected to hundreds of sound sources at “excellent” quality.
