The next-generation PlayStation console is called the PS5 (PlayStation 5) and it’s landing at the end of 2020. Earlier this year Mark Cerny, the chief architect on Sony’s next console announced, that Sony is working on the successor to the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro.
Details about the PlayStation 5 have been slowly unveiling out over the past few months as Sony gears up to launch its next-generation console next year. There’s still no word as to what the console looks. Sony has said the PS5 will support 8K graphics, ray tracing, super-fast SSDs to cut down on load times, and PS4 backwards compatibility. On the hardware front, expect an eight-core CPU (based on AMD’s new Zen 2 architecture) and a custom GPU based on AMD’s Radeon Navi hardware.
Some few details about the PlayStation 5 controller, which will swap the current rumble technology for haptic feedback tech and feature “adaptive triggers” that can adjust how much resistance there is when you press them. Sony is expected to reveal more about the PlayStation 5 later this year, presumably during the E3 expo in Los Angeles in June.
