The features included in it are an 825GB SSD and 16GB RAM, 36 compute units at 2.23GHz, eight-core AMD Zen 2-CPU clocked at 3.5GHz, and an AMD RDNA 2 GPU with 10.28 teraflops.

The standard PS5 includes the 4K UHD Blu- ray drive which is missing in the Digital version. This makes it have a bulge at the front. It is created to have a bold, appealing, and futuristic appearance. Its design has a white shell that passes through the black core and is faintly like that of PS3 (has a black stripe) and PS4 (has a blue stripe). The top has vents to reduce temperature while the front part has USB-A and USB-C fronts. The PS5 is packed in blue cases that appear similar to the PS4 but are slightly darker and match the blue accents on the console and controller. Peripherals that come with the device are an HD Camera, media remote, headset allowing 3D Audio, and two controllers. These features make it to be worth upgrading to.


The disc-equipped console has an optical drive which also sums up as a Blu-ray player and supports 4K video. Through the console, users can be able to have a widened range of home entertainment and enjoy DVDs and Blu-ray discs for a widened experience with friends and family. The new hardware runs on: 10.28 TFLOPS, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz with variable frequency, a custom RDNA 2 architecture, and a PS4 by comparison launched with 1.84 TFLOPS, 18 CUs at 800MHz.

It further comes with a more flexible GPU which involves specs such as a 1.25 performance per clock upgrade and a 1.5x performance-per-watt. It further encompasses a new compute design bringing higher efficiency, streamlined graphics providing optimized performance, and a multi-level cache hierarchy.


The limelight of the PS5 is its high processing power that enables gamers to have memorable and swift experiences while playing their games. It has CPU specs of an eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU clocked at 3.5GHz which is the highest end of Sony’s CPUs. It has been strategically designed to showcase a different paradigm from the usual norm that gamers are used to. The CPU is efficient enough and allows the adjustment of frequencies based on workloads as an internal monitor analyzes tasks and adjusts frequencies to match the CPU and GPU. AMD’s smart shift technology has been incorporated to authorize unused power to be switched from the CPU to GPU, therefore, having the gadget to have increased performance.


PS5 offers Dual sense controllers as their gamepad. The controllers differ in looks from the Dual Shock 4 controllers that were launched with the PS4. They create a futuristic print with their boomerang-like shape and a white and black colour scheme. It has haptic feedback which replaces the PS4S rumble technology. It also has adaptive triggers that have been modelled to the trigger buttons to accurately stimulate actions, a new ‘create’ button that does the task of the share button, and an audio jack that allows users to plug in headsets and headphones.


The PS5 uses a proprietary 825 GB (SSD) which boasts load time for games and provides 5.5GB/s for performance. This is an improvement to the PS4 which had a 500GB and 1TB configuration. The upgraded storage also allows users to increase their storage through a compatible NVMe SSD hard drive.

The PS5 has become a pacesetter for the gaming world.
