  • Sony’s new console PlayStation 5 is going to be the fastest with storage far beyond any gaming PC.
  • The new console is anticipated to feature eight cores of 3.5 GHz processing power, 16GB of RAM, a GPU capable of calculating more than 10 teraflops, and a custom 825GB SSD.
  • The launch date and price of the device is still kept unknown by the company.

Soon we are going to recognize the most powerful next-gen gaming devices leaving all the gaming addicts to go nuts. We are precisely talking about Sony PlayStation 5 and during a recent press conference, between talking about the fresh Unreal Engine 5, which is created to work with next-gen consoles, Epic CEO Tim Sweeney caught admiring the new gadget. He said the PS5 is a “remarkably balanced device. It has an immense amount of GPU power, but also a multi-order bandwidth increase in storage management. That’s going to be absolutely critical,” he says. “It’s one thing to render everything that can fit in memory,” he adds. 

Furthermore, he disclosed his close working relationship with Sony in order to vast the arena of storage and then made a bold statement  “The storage architecture on the PS5 is far ahead of anything you can buy on PC for any amount of money right now. It’s going to help drive future PCs. [The PC market is] going to see this thing ship and say, ‘Oh wow, SSDs are going to need to catch up with this.” We are talking about the future already.

From the previous conference, we gathered some data of the console as it is anticipated to feature eight cores of 3.5 GHz processing power, 16GB of RAM, a GPU capable of calculating more than 10 teraflops, and a custom 825GB SSD. The ”825GB SSD” is what would make it a revolutionary device. With zero loading time and offering the developers to access data of their games with unparalleled tempo, it would be the smartest and fastest than any on-market device right now. Along with that, it would have the graphics to die for and gaming performance would get multiply by a hundred. Big claims lead to huge excitements.

Sweeney’s terms should not be misinterpreted. All he believes is the custom drive Sony built and the manner it interacts with the all-around PS5 data administration system makes it tighter and more stunning from a development stance that anything a consumer could readily buy without hesitation. Also, he is not dependent on Sony, he at Epic with his team has worked closely together with the company and the engineers at Epic witnessing the console themselves to locate any improvement.

It is a competitive world and Microsoft’s Xbox series X can accomplish the same as well since the two of them are using customizable SSD’s. But work proximity with PlayStation creator can outgrow in comparison to Microsoft. In short, what Sweeney wants to suggest that the modern console will deliver privileges we have to experience to appreciate.

However, more details are required from the Company’s side heeding its price tag and launch date in particular.
