Sony reveals more details about what is inside the PS5


We recently had some details about Microsoft’s Xbox Series X console and now PS5 lead system architect Mark Cerny provides a deep dive into PS5’s system architecture and how it will shape the future of games.

It has an AMD based processor that is 10.28 TFLOPS with 36CUs at 2.23GHz. It also has an SSD system to allow for dramatically faster load times and features internal 825GB on storage with NVMe SSD slots to expand.

Cerny revealed that PS4 (and PS4 Pro) backwards compatibility is a native part of the PS5 chipset. “Once backwards compatibility is in the console, it’s in,” Cerny says. “It’s not as if a cost-down will remove backwards compatibility like it did on PlayStation 3.”

Cerny says that running PS4 titles at boosted frequencies can cause complications in certain games. “The boost is truly massive this time around, and some game code just can’t handle it. Testing has to be done on a title-by-title basis.”

He did say that “almost all” of the top 100 PS4 games will be available at launch.
