The next-gen console by SONY
Sony has revealed the PlayStation 5. After almost an hour of PS5 game announcements, Sony revealed the hardware design after teasing it for the duration of its PS5 live event today. The PS5 console includes a black-and-white design to match the new controller that will be included in the box.
The PS5 stands vertically as the Xbox Series X is primarily designed to be placed, and will be included two versions: one with a 4K Blu-ray drive and a pure Digital Edition. The PS5 variant without the optical drive looks substantially thinner than the regular model. They have removed the drive.
Since the Sony has removed the drive means this version should be cheaper too but they have not announced the price yet. The company has just revealed the design at launch through live stream. The company hasn’t given any release date or pricing either variants of the PS5.
You can place the PS5 vertically or horizontally underneath a TV or monitor just like the Xbox Series X. Sony has built a stand that works for either orientation, and the company is using what looks like a slightly different stand for the Digital Edition of the PS5. The top of the PS5 unit also appears to include vents for heat dissipation, with USB-A and USB-C ports at the front.
Sony has also developed a number of accessories for the PS5, including a DualSense charging station, a Pulse 3D wireless headset, a new HD camera and a media remote. As like PS5 Sony has not yet announced pricing for any of its accessories, or whether they will announce all alongside the new PS5 consoles.
Sony slowly providing information about its next-gen PS5 in recent months. The console will arrive in the holiday season and is powered by an eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU and a custom AMD RDNA 2-based GPU. Sony announced the PS5 specs in March, and the custom AMD chips will provide 10.28 teraflops of power using variable frequencies on both the CPU and GPU.
Sony is also using a proprietary SSD solution to boost load times for games. The SSD will give 825GB of storage and 5.5GB/s of performance. Sony is requiring that all games be installed to the internal SSD to make use of the read speeds.
