The new PS5 by Sony is on its way and promises to be better in every aspect compared to previous consoles. Regardless of what it’s going to be called (PS5, PlayStation 5, or simply PlayStation), the important thing here to take is the fact that it is in development.
Mark Cerny teased us some time ago that they are working on a next-gen console that will surpass the PS4, PS4 Slim, and PS4 Pro, in every department.
While we do know that it will operate on the same disk-method, on the hardware part we are largely left in the dark.
Microsoft and Sony have joined forces to create a dominant streaming platform, but we know little about that as well.
In this article, we are going to be talking about the design aspect of the new PS5. However, with so little information available to us, we are going to talk about other stuff such as features, specifications, and what will the new console be capable of in terms of gaming.
Some time ago we got teased in the formed of a Sony-registered patent that seemed to point out towards the PS5’s general shape, button layout, and cooling vents. But take this with a grain of salt because everything could change between now and the launch.
The patent leak in regards to the design of the new console shoed us a lot of cooling vents stationed in around the entire console. This likely points out a substantial cooling system that would require a substantial power output to run.
It is rumored that the new PS5 will have a “V” shape design, likely referencing the Roman numeral V – meaning 5. On the leak images, we’ve seen USB ports for the DualShock controllers and a disk drive slot.
According to ps5home.com, this all might be false and Sony could deliberately have leaked these images to keep the design a secret.
We’ve been told that an 8-core AMD chipset with a 3rd generation Ryzen architecture is on the table for the CPU part. The GPU is likely to also come from AMD’s Navi line. It is said that an SSD will be the main storage system, with 3D audio capabilities. However, one of the most exciting things is the fact that the PS5 will likely be backward compatible, meaning that it will be able to run PS4 games and PSVR hardware.
The console will also likely support 8K TV; information revealed to us by Sony’s chief in charge of next-gen console development, Mark Cerny.
While we are generally in the dark in regards to the looks, the internal hardware parts are very promising, to say the least. Based on the hardware capabilities, we can safely say that the console can fully unlock
