It took 7 whole years for SONY to make a well upgraded and crafted version of PlayStation 4. We are talking about the super sleek looking PlayStation 5. With its Hardware and it’s accessories sneak peek video released last month. Everybody has one main question in mind – Is PS5 Worth buying as compared to PS4?

So let’s not waste any time more and dive into the SONY’s PlayStation 5 Hardware and it’s new and evolved technology.

Sleek White Hardware Body Of PS5

The new PlayStation 5 will come in 2 variants that are the PlayStation 5 and the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition. Awesome right?
The major difference between both is the PS5 editions is that the former version and the new PS5 Standard Version have a disc drive but it’s Digital Edition will have an optical blue-ray drive. Above that most importantly it will not require gaming discs to play games on it rather it will promote digital downloading of the video games directly to SSD storage. It will be great for users who don’t like changing games by replacing CDs from the console and preventing them from getting damaged. I know the pain of CDs getting damaged by carelessness.

Yes, the price difference is also there between the two editions which will be later revealed by SONY itself in the fourth quarter. But, right now let’s discuss the Hardware part of PlayStation 5.

Basically the PS5 is working on AMD‘s CPU & GPU system which involves:-

  • CPU:- A 8-Core AMD Zen 2 Processor working on variable frequency (Maximum working frequency at 3.5 GHz).
  • GPU:- A custom AMD based RDNA 2 (Powering unit for your games for better visualizing and performance of the game).
  • Storage:- Memory Storage is 16 GB GDDR6 SDRAM & Internal Storage is customizable 825 GB SSD (Solid State Drive).

Other hardware Features of PS5

  • Display Format:- Available through HDMI (Supporting 480p, 720p , 1080i, 1080p, 4K Ultra HD, 8K Ultra HD).
  • Ports Available:- USB compatible port for external HDD and SSD expansion through NVM Express or NVMHCIS (Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Interface Specification).
  • Sound System:- Custom Built 3D Audio engine named Tempest Engine.

Are you still impressed or you want more? If you are still not satisfied with the hardware part then the next section is just for you.

My Conclusion

Is PS5 Worth Buying

Keeping all the above things in mind and knowing the fact that after the release of PS5. All game developers will automatically shift the PlayStation games to PS5 compatible. Also, the new high-end games that will be released after SONY launches PS5 will be made PS5 exclusive only.

If the expected price is around 500$ for the base model of the PlayStation 5 then it is a hell of good news for the gamers as it will be totally worth it. With time the graphics of the game is improving very fast and the Console should also have to keep on upgrading to cope up with the changes to give the best gaming experience to the gamers. SONY is showing the future of gaming and has worked for over 7 years to launch this perfect gaming project which is expected to be released in the final quarter of 2020. Also, it will be great to see the Xbox series X Vs PS5 competition later this year.
