Mark your calendars, 4th of June is the day where Sony is going to show what kind of games the next-generation console will be powering.
Finally, the guessing game is over for one of the most anticipated events from Sony for this year. The word is out now and Sony has officially announced a PS5 event which is all set for 4th of June, Thursday at 9 pm BST/1 pm PDT.
However, it doesn’t seem like it the console will be revealed at the event as the official blog post from Sony reads as ”a bit more than an hour” which will give you ”a first look at the games you’ll be playing after PlayStation 5 launches this holiday”.
Although they also stated that this is just a part of the series of PS5 updates to come, which might simply mean, they would be saving a full-fledged reveal of the next-gen console for a later date.
Thus far, we have learned about the DualSense controller of the PS5 and the spec sheet of the next-generation console is been revealed.
For those who don’t know what’s powering the upcoming console, Specifications are as follows:
- CPU – 8x Zen 2 Cores at 3.5GHz (variable frequency
- GPU – 10.28 TFLOPS, 36 CUs at 2.23 GHZ (variable frequency)
- GPU Architecture – Custom RDNA 2
- Memory/interface – 448GB/s
- Internal Storage – Custom 825GB SSD
- IO Throughput – 5.5GB/s (Raw), Typical 8-9 GB/s (compressed)
- Expandable Storage – NVMe SSD slot
- External Storage – USB HDD Support
- Optical Drive – 4K UHD Blu-ray Drive
I must say, slowly but surely Sony is taking its own sweet time to reveal details about their upcoming console while the rival Microsoft has already revealed Xbox Series X back in December itself and has showcased all the third-party games that will be offered on Xbox.
