How many of you are excited for the new PlayStation 5 (PS5), well surely I am !
And so are thousands of gaming fans and addicts all around the world.
Sony has finally revealed the new PlayStation 5 and is all set for launch later this year.
A technological masterpiece and the latest Trend in the Gaming world, lets tell you all about the new SONY: PLAYSTATION 5 (PS5) :
Introduction to PS5 –
As you know that PlayStation 5 (officially abbreviated as PS5) is an upcoming home video game console developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
Announced in 2019 as the successor to the PlayStation 4, it is scheduled to launch in late 2020.
The platform is anticipated to launch in two varieties,
as a base PlayStation 5 system incorporating a Blu-ray compatible optical disc drive for retail game support alongside digital distribution via the PlayStation Store,
and a lower-cost Digital variant lacking the disc drive while retaining digital download support.
The PlayStation 5 retains the same AMD-branded CPU family as the PlayStation 4,
but features a customized solid state drive designed for high-speed data streaming to enable significant improvements in graphical performance.
Features of PS5 –
Sony PlayStation claims that –
Users will “Experience lightning fast loading with an ultra-high speed SSD, deeper immersion with support for haptic feedback,
adaptive triggers and 3D Audio, and an all-new generation of incredible PlayStation® games. “
The PlayStation 5 uses AMD’s 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture with 8 CPU cores running at a variable frequency capped at 3.5 GHz.
The GPU is a customized system-on-a-chip (SoC) based on AMD’s RDNA 2,
featuring 36 compute units running at a variable frequency, capped at 2.23 GHz, and capable of 10.28 TFLOPS.
I noted that both the CPU and GPU are monitored by a special boost system incorporating AMD’s SmartShift technology that adjusts the frequency of these systems based on the current activities of both chips,
to target ideal constant power drawn and a model SoC performance profile. For example, if the CPU is running at lower activity,
the boost system may reduce its frequency and increase the frequency of the GPU to allow that GPU to run at higher performance without otherwise affecting power use or cooling.
The GPU supports hardware acceleration of real-time ray traced rendering.
I also got to know that the new PS5 has a new audio technology called Tempest Engine,
which allows not only for hundreds of sound sources within a game to be accounted for in producing audio output compared to 50 for the PlayStation 4,
but also how that audio is presented based on the end user’s device and preferences.
The system has 16 GB of GDDR6 SDRAM with a bandwidth of 448 GB/s
DualSense Controller –
The new DualSense wireless controller for the PlayStation 5 was revealed on April 7, 2020.
Also, PS creators claim that – The DualSense wireless controller for PS5 offers immersive haptic feedback,
dynamic adaptive triggers and a built-in microphone, all integrated into an iconic design.
The DualSense controller is based on the DualShock controllers but with modifications influenced by discussions with game designers and players.
The DualSense controller has adaptive triggers with haptic feedback that can change the resistance to the player as necessary,
supporting an experience such as virtually drawing an arrow from a bow.
The DualSense has strong haptic feedback through voice coil actuators,
which together with an improved controller speaker will be intended to give better in-game feedback.
It has USB-C connectivity, a higher-rated battery and an audio jack.
Other Accessories –
In addition to the console reveal,
several additional accessories were announced including a charging station for the DualSense, a new HD camera, and a media remote control.
The Pulse 3D is wireless headset made to take advantage of the console’s 3D audio technology.
Sony has stated it will support publishers who want to offer PS5 versions of PS4 titles at no additional cost.
Electronic Arts has affirmed its games released in 2020 for the PS4 will have free updates to be playable on the PS5.
Bungie similarly has said Destiny 2 players on PS4 can update their game to the enhanced PS5 version at no extra cost.
The console supports cross-generation play for cross-platform and backward compatible games,
enabling players to switch backward or forward between systems and continue their progress,
while friends separated by platform can join the same multiplayer games together.
Sony CEO Jim Ryan said “it won’t be a binary choice about whether you have to be either on PlayStation 4 or next-gen to continue your friendship.
Some of the Featured games on the official PS5 page are :
1.Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
2.Horizon Forbidden West
3.Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
4.Gran Turismo 7
Reported in February 2020 from people with knowledge of Sony’s manufacturing process that the current bill of materials
selected for the unit are estimated to be about US$450 total, driven by the current higher costs of flash memory,
which was in high demand by cell phone manufacturers for the rollout of 5G wireless connectivity.
So, the net estimate the PlayStation price will be at least US$470,
however increased revenue from online subscription services may allow Sony “greater flexibility” on final hardware pricing.
Release Date –
As,Sony has officially confirmed that the PS5 will release globally “in time for Holiday 2020”,
So that should be in October and December 2020 .
Also a leak has suggested that the release date will be November 20, 2020 but that’s yet to be confirmed.
