Now that you've seen the specs for the PS5, you're probably wondering - what exactly do these means for the console?
The choice of GPU has been driven by the belief Sony has that, as Rich Leadbetter from Digital Foundry explains, "a smaller GPU can be a more nimble, more agile GPU, the inference being that PS5's graphics core should be able to deliver performance higher than you may expect from a TFLOPs number that doesn't accurately encompass the capabilities of all parts of the GPU."
The new Custom 825GB SSD will also help increase performance. As Rich explains in his analysis, "Sony's actual implementation is something else, with performance rated at two orders of magnitude faster than PlayStation 4. 2GB of data can be loaded in one quarter of a second, meaning that in theory, the entirety of PS5's 16GB can be filled in just two seconds."
