Sony has today revealed the specs for the PlayStation 5 as promised and it shares more than few aspects with the Xbox Series X console.

PlayStation system architect Mark Cerny is currently presenting details on Sony’s upcoming console as we write this, however, Digital Foundry has already published the long-awaited specs.

The PlayStation 5 CPU features 8 Zen 2 cores and its GPU clocks in at 10.28 TFLOPS (Xbox Series X has as many as 12 TFLOPS for comparison) using custom RDNA 2 architecture. Sony’s upcoming console features 16 GB GDDR6 memory (the same as the Xbox Series X).

The PlayStation 5 has a fairly disappointing 825 GB SSD – looks like we will all have to purchase additional SSD storage, something that is possible through the NVMe SSD slot. The relatively small-sized SSD was chosen to keep costs down understandably.

You can view the breakdown of PlayStation 5 specs below.

    • CPU 8x Zen 2 Cores at 3.5GHz (variable frequency)
    • GPU 10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz (variable frequency)
    • GPU Architecture Custom RDNA 2
    • Memory/Interface 16GB GDDR6/256-bit
    • Memory Bandwidth 448GB/s
    • Internal Storage Custom 825GB SSD
    • IO Throughput 5.5GB/s (Raw), Typical 8-9GB/s (Compressed)
    • Expandable Storage NVMe SSD Slot
    • External Storage USB HDD Support
    • Optical Drive 4K UHD Blu-ray Drive

Cerny has previously revealed the PlayStation 5 will support 8K graphics with support for up to 120 fps. Elsewhere we know the PlayStation 5 controller will feature haptic feedback which has impressed Sony Interactive Entertainment’s President and CEO Jim Ryan recently.

The console will utilise 100GB optical discs and feature backwards compatibility. The PlayStation 5 is scheduled to release Holiday 2020 although it remains to be seen if this will still be possible given the coronavirus outbreak which is causing worldwide disruption.
