We will continue to pay attention to game promotion information and event dynamics.
Sony PlayStation 5 latest information
In other reports, Sony is expected to launch the PlayStation 5 at the end of the year. Sony officially announced the hardware specification of the PS5 a few months ago. Since then, we have seen much more information about the Sony PS5. The console uses a two-color “sandwich” shape design, which is not bad in all honesty. Technically, the most anticipated PS5 information is the price.
It may interest you to know that the PlayStation 5 is not a device you will want to move regularly. According to the information on an Amazon PS5 pre-order page, the weight of the PS5 is a whooping 4.78Kg. This is about 2kg heavier than the PS4 which weighs 2.8Kg. For those who love the competition, this is not a win for Microsoft Xbox Series X. Microsoft’s latest Xbox also weighs 4.45Kg. This means that it is only slightly lighter than the PS5. According to Matt MacLaurin, former vice president of UX design for PlayStation, the power is also very high due to the amazing thermal performance of the 7nm process. The larger space and weight are for better heat dissipation.
The Sony PlayStation 5 uses a custom AMD 8 core 3.5GHz Zen 2 CPU, a custom RDNA 2 GPU containing 36 sets of CU units, a floating-point computing capability of 10.28 TFLOPs, a 16GB GDDR6 memory, a custom 825GB SSD, and a 4K UHD Blu-ray drive. The graphics frequency is up to 2.23GHz and it supports 120Hz/8K output, 3D sound effects, etc. SSD is the key to PS5 performance improvement. The seek time of PS4 takes 2-50 seconds, while PS5 is almost instant. In terms of loading speed, PS5 can load 2GB of memory in 0.27 seconds, while PS4 takes 20 seconds to load 1GB. Sony believes that the new SSD will significantly speed up the PS5 game loading speed. According to the company, games can launch within a second with almost no loading time.
