According to recent reports, Sony released a new “hid-PlayStation” Linux kernel driver that supports the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller. This driver also supports other PlayStation hardware on Linux. Furthermore, the new Linux kernel driver supports the DualSense controller in both USB and Bluetooth modes. It also supports motion sensors, LED lights, touchpads, light bars, vibration, etc.
When announcing the new driver, Sony plans to transfer part of the Sony Interactive Entertainment hardware support from the existing “hid-sony” to the “hid-PlayStation” driver. The initial form of this driver has more than 1,400 lines of code to meet the needs of the PS5 controller.
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. 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.
