PS5 Specs – Why We Can’t Wait For The PS5

With the launch of the PS5 right around the corner, we’re all eagerly awaiting the shiny new console and its next-gen games. The PS5 has many technical details that will make it the new king of consoles and blow away the previous generation in speed, storage, and graphics. Here are the PS5 specs that make us foam at the mouth.

 
 
 

5. Super-Fast SSD

The PS5 will have the fastest storage of any console ever made by far. The new NVMe drive will compete with high-end PCs for its speed, adaptability, and loading times.

Sony has claimed this NVMe drive will virtually eliminate loading times in games or drastically shorten them. I’d say this is on of the best features of the PS5! Who likes loading times?

4. 4k UHD Blu-Ray

There’s something special about Blu-Ray movies and shows. The beautiful display and vibrant colors are truly awesome. Luckily, the PS5 will have a high-tech 4k UHD Blu-Ray player built in the standard version.

3. 5x Faster GPU

The PS5 boasted 1.84 TFLOPs with 18 cores. The PS5 will harness a massive 10.28 TFLOPs with 36 cores. That’s over 5x faster than the previous-gen!

2. Crazy Fast CPU

You can’t do a PS5 specs list without mentioning the CPU. The eight Zen 2 cores at 3.5ghz are going to be a marvel to see. Heck, my PC only has Zen 1. This will give developers more headroom to create intense, detailed worlds.
