PS5 Details

A copy and paste from this site >> https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/16/18401209/sony-playstation-5-details-8k-graphics-ray-tracing-ssds-ps4-backward-compatibility

 

According to Mark Cerny, who served as the lead system architect for the PS4, the new console isn’t just a spec-boosted upgrade of the PS4, like the PS4 Pro was. There’s entirely new hardware inside the PlayStation 5, including an eight-core CPU based on AMD’s third-gen Ryzen line built on the chip company’s latest 7nm Zen 2 process and a custom GPU based on AMD’s Radeon Navi hardware, which will bring ray-tracing graphics to a game console for the first time. The end result of all those hardware improvements: the PS5 will support 8K graphics, assuming you’ve got a TV that supports that kind of resolution.

THE PS5 WILL SUPPORT 8K GRAPHICS, ASSUMING YOU’VE GOT AN 8K TV

Sony is also putting particular emphasis on 3D audio for the PlayStation 5. The new AMD chip apparently includes a custom unit just for that, which Sony hopes will lead to more immersive gaming both on TV speakers and headphones.

The other big change coming to the PlayStation 5 is the replacement of the hard drive with an SSD, which Sony promises will improve load time and gameplay beyond anything possible with a hard drive. (In a demo described by Wired, fast-traveling in Spider-Man for the PS4 took only 0.8 seconds on an early devkit for the PS5, compared to 15 seconds on a PS4.)

Other details that Sony revealed about the PS5 include the fact that it’ll be backwards compatible with existing PlayStation 4 games. Unlike the PS3 to PS4 transition, the PS4 and PS5 share similar architectures, making cross-generational support much easier. There will still be physical copies of games to buy, not just downloads (although Sony has yet to reveal if these will be Blu-ray discs or something more exotic). The company is also promising that when the PS5 does roll around, it’ll be a slower transition, with multiple new games releasing for both the PS4 and PS5 — at least at the start.

While Sony wouldn’t discuss future PSVR plans, like a next-gen headset to go along with the new console, the company confirmed that the existing PSVR headset will continue to work with the PlayStation 5.

For now, Sony seems to only be willing to talk broad strokes about hardware. There’s no word yet on things like games or media features, for example. It could be some time until we learn more. The PlayStation 5 likely won’t be making an appearance at E3 since Sony is sitting out the show this year.

There’s still no release date yet for the PS5. Cerny would only tell Wired that it won’t be out in 2019, but that developers already have access to devkits to develop games for it, which would make sense for a rumored 2020 launch.

Does anyone even know anybody with and 8K tv? I never heard of one until the PS5 announcement.

I do like that it is keeping physical games as an option, some of us don't have the net needed to do download only or a cloud based thing like Google is coming out with.

If you set up two 4K TV's (one for each eye) does that count?

Yeah! The specs they released for the consoles could never even upscale to 8k but it will fill the aspect ratio of an 8K TV without leaving any sections that are dark on the screen. Best example of that would be a captioned movie We're parts of the screen are dark but the movie plays throughout the center. I think they're being deceptive here. I am more interested in their 120hz refresh rates, chances are that's for only 1080P and 2K at that refresh rate I dont mind being proven wrong 

 

It would be nice to use the 120 hertz finally off my ten-year-old monitor that's probably going to die soon before I actually experience 120 hertz.🤣

Since we originally unveiled our next-generation console in April, we know that there’s been a lot of excitement and interest in hearing more about what the future of games will bring. Today I’m proud to share that our next-generation console will be called PlayStation 5, and we’ll be launching in time for Holiday 2020.

Time for me to start saving.
