The PS5 will be a powerful system, we all know it. We also know that Sony’s new console will feature eight cores of 3.5 GHz processing power, 16GB of RAM, and a GPU capable of processing more than 10 teraflops, and 825GB SSD. It might be powerful to change the world of PC, according to Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney. He thinks that Sony’s hardware and development tools are unique and that they will change the future of the gaming industry.
According to some sources, Sweeney made a lot of bold claims about the technical capabilities of PS5, especially when it comes to the GPU and SSD. He stated that: [The PS5] has an immense amount of GPU power, but also multi-order bandwidth increase in storage management,” he said. “We’ve been working super close with Sony for quite a long time on storage. The storage architecture on the PS5 is far ahead of anything you can buy on the PC for any amount of money right now. It’s going to help drive future PCs.”
We all know Sweeney and his remarks, and the PS5 claim is not out of character for him. Mark Cerny stated the same thing about the hardware of PS5 back in March. He also said that a similar SSD will be made available for PCs later in 2020, but that the standard version of PS5 will come with a much better hardware/software synchronicity than a usual PC.
When talking about raw speed, Sweeney stated that the PC manufacturers will match the PS5’s SSD very soon. He also suggested that the PS5 will come with a specialized data management system, thing that’s not possible to implement on a PC.
