The Playstation 5 specs disappoint fans and bag

The "presentation" of PS5 aired in these days served very little. Or at least, it served very little to those who hoped to see something more on the console. The event, to be honest, was addressed to the developers, but being visible to everyone, some more detail was expected to "feed" the curiosity of the fans. So it wasn't. However, some more details have been provided on the technical specifications of Playstation 5, which today are of little use. On paper, it would even seem that PS5 will be less powerful than the Xbox Series X whose detailed technical specifications have been published by Microsoft in the past few days.

To date, PS5 does not yet have a face, but has nevertheless been described in its most important technical characteristics. As for the CPU, it is an 8-core 3.5GHz AMD Zen 2, flanked by one GPU at 10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz with variable frequency. The GPU architecture of the console based on RDNA 2 personalized, while at the level of RAM the console will offer 16GB GDDR6 / 256-bit.

The integrated storage space will be 825GB, based on a custom SSD, with the possibility of I / O Throughput of 5.5GB / s (Raw), Typical 8-9GB / s (Compressed). The storage space will still be expandable via the NVMe SSD slot, but a common external USB HDD can also be connected to the console. It is clear, as indeed will happen on Xbox Series X, that a common HDD will not be able to run PS5 games correctly, as it can at most be used for backwards compatibility. PS5 will also enjoy an optical player, a unit capable of playing 4K Blu-ray.

So the Playstation 5 specs so far revealed say little or nothing to most users. The presentation was not appreciated even by the stock exchange, which made markings for the Sony title. The figure on which much attention has focused the computing power of 10.28 TFLOPS, compared to the 12 Xbox Series X teraflops. On paper, for many it is an important fact, which could mean less power for PS5 compared to the Microsoft console. It is clear, what is not. Or rather, still too early to draw conclusions.

A difference in favor of the Sony console seems to be the Throughput I / O: on PS5, compressed, it reaches 9 GB / s against the 4.8 GB / s of the Xbox Series X. Again, if you look at the clock frequency of the console Sony, this turns out to be variable, while on Xbox Series X locked. Again, this is an interesting detail, which could tip the balance for one or the other console, but still too early to actually translate this data into a real advantage for one or the other. other console.

At the moment, some of the most important questions remain unanswered: how much will PS5 cost? When will it be released? How is it done? According to the latest advances, it should see light during the 2020 Christmas holidays, with a price that may not be within everyone's reach.
