Update: Famitsu has added one more detail to what we’ve already learned about PlayStation 5. Sony’s next console will include an 8 core, 16 thread x86-64-AMD Ryzen “Zen2″ CPU.
We’d already learned that the console would include a custom AMD Ryzen CPU, but not what exact specs it would sport. This brings it in line with AMD’s current mid-tier Ryzen 7 processors.
Original story: Sony has announced that PlayStation 5 will be released during holiday 2020.
Revealed in a PlayStation blog post, the console is (as you might have expected) officially called PlayStation 5. The blog also reveals that the console’s controller will feature two key new innovations – haptic feedback (replacing the traditional rumble) and adaptive triggers. It will also feature USB C charging, a higher-capacity battery and is a little heavier than its predecessor (but still lighter than an Xbox One controller with batteries inside).
