Sony PlayStation 5
Compared to Sony’s last console, the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation 5 is a powerhouse with vastly improved graphics and amazing new features. It’s powered by an 8-core 3.5GHz processor, 16GB of GDDR6 RAM, and a 2.23GHz GPU with 36 compute units (CUs) that delivers a staggering 10.28 teraflops (TFLOPS) of floating-point performance.
If those numbers are hard to understand, consider that the PS4 had a GPU with 18 CUs clocked at 800MHz, which produced just 1.84 TFLOPS of floating-point performance. Because there is so much more power under the hood, you can expect vastly improved graphics, all in super-sharp native 4K resolution at up to 120 frames per second. When playing games on the PS5, you can also expect incredibly realistic lighting and shadows due to its support of ray tracing technology. On top of this, the console also employs super-fast SSD storage, making long loading times a thing of the past.
Graphics aside, the PS5 has a raft of new features to create a more immersive experience. 3D audio lets you hear the direction of sounds with pinpoint accuracy, and the new DualSense controller boasts advanced haptics and adaptive triggers that use special motors to create realistic tension. The PS5 can also double as your multimedia hub, thanks to its 4K Blu-ray drive and apps for most streaming services.
