Recently, there were some leaks regarding the PS5 technical specs, after many developers supposedly received some development kits. But what do the leaked specs say?
Rumors about Future Specs
According to the leaked information, the PS5 will come together with built-in VR capabilities. Moreover, fans will get to enjoy the AMD’s Navi technology based on GPU, plus an 8-core customized Zen CPU. One source estimated that the Navi GPU architecture can operate at 50 TFLOPs, plus half precision. At the same time, it also has a 30 TFLOPs single precision, paired with 16 to 128 GB of RAM (Nexgen Memory).
At the same time, an 8-core Zen CPU offers a clock rate of 3.4 – 4.1 GHz. If you look at the Xbox One X, you will see that it comes with 6TFLOPs, 12 GM RAM, and a 2.3 GHz processor. This means that the PlayStation 5 will now be the most powerful console in the world.
But How Do We Know about This?
In the beginning of this week, SemiAccurate, which is a technology news website, showed that some major game development companies received some PS5 development kits. There are also plenty of recent events that confirm this possibility. For example, Ninja Theory, which is the developer of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, posted a job that concerns the next generation melee action.
At the same time, the CD Projekt RED, which appeared last month, raised some rumors that the upcoming game, Cyberpunk 2077, will be prepared for the next generation of consoles. This also helps suggest that the PS5 has already reached the developers. And if you still can’t believe it, there are some statements saying that the technology in Cyberpunk 2077, which is very advanced, is ready to mingle with the future generations.
An estimated release date for the console is hard to establish. Some say we will get to see it this year, while others think it’s more likely for it to appear in 2020.
