Sony spoke about PS5 specs
As expected, after the announcement of the characteristics and the Xbox Series X, Sony released identical information about its console. To be more precise, they held a broadcast where they told everything about the PS5. Like last time, due to the format, we will tell you about the features of the console, and you can see the technical specifications here.
One of the main features of the PS5 is backward compatibility, thanks to which almost all projects from the 100 most popular games released on PS4 will be available at the start of the new console. The console has two compatibility modes - Native and PS4 Pro Legacy. Native Compatibility Mode takes full advantage of the PS5 and will likely run the 100 most popular games.
The console has an additional SSD slot, but not all storage will fit there. Among the caveats, it is mentioned that a third-party SSD must match or exceed the speed of the internal drive. In this case, you need exactly an M.2 SSD that supports PCIe 4.0. Sony will select suitable devices as part of the certification. However, the external hard drive can only be used for storing games from PS4.
Another feature of the console is sound. The Tempest audio chip is capable of supporting and playing hundreds of sounds simultaneously. For example, recreate individual raindrops in a cut scene or gameplay. Plus we are promised surround sound. Sony is currently working on this capability for stereo speakers and audio systems, but initially you will be able to hear surround sound with Tempest-enabled headphones.
The console is slated for release later this year.
