The console gaming community is eagerly awaiting Sony PlayStation 5. Especially after Microsoft announced that the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles will launch in November, at $499 and $299, respectively.
In terms of specifications, the PS5 will feature a custom eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU clocked at 3.5GHz. And also a custom GPU based on AMD`s RDNA 2 architecture hardware that promises 10.28 teraflops and 36 compute units clocked at 2.23GHz.
All this comes with a good chunk of 16GB of GDDR6 RAM and a custom 825GB SSD.
The PS5 will also feature a 4K Blu-ray drive and will still support discs. But those games will still require installation to the internal SSD.
