The world already knows just about everything there is to know about the upcoming next-generation console PlayStation 5 that will hit the stores in a little more than a month: price, release date, specs, and so on. But surprises could still occur, and that’s exactly what the user Kenzodielocke from an online gaming forum is suggesting.
Kenzodielocke has posted some pics of the supposed UI of the upcoming console, and they contradict the official specifications sheet that claims 825GB of storage space.
Only 664GB of storage space?
This is exactly what the post is claiming, and there’s no wonder why such a scenario would disappoint a lot of fans. Pretty much any high-end game from nowadays requires at least 50GB of storage space, and they will require even more in the near future as long as they become even more realistic. But at least the new info doesn’t contradict the presence of an SSD for PlayStation 5. Let’s face it: regular hard disks are obsolete for 2020 gaming.
The rest of the specs for PS5, as they were previously revealed, are the following:
- CPU: AMD Zen 2-based CPU with 8 cores at 3.5GHz (variable frequency)
- GPU: 10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz (variable frequency)
- GPU architecture: Custom RDNA 2
- Memory interface: 16GB GDDR6 / 256-bit
- Memory bandwidth: 448GB/s
- IO throughput: 5.5GB/s (raw), typical 8-9GB/s (compressed)
- Expandable storage: NVMe SSD slot
- External storage: USB HDD support (PS4 games only)
- Optical drive: 4K UHD Blu-ray drive
The starting price for PlayStation 5 is set at $499 for the standard configuration (including a disc drive), and at $399 for the Digital Edition. Sony itself said that the release date for its future console is set for 12th November in the US, Canada, Japan, Australia, Mexico, New Zealand and South Korea. The console will also arrive in the UK and the rest of the world on November 19th.
