Sony unveiled the PlayStation 5: Hardware and Specifications available at $499

Sony PlayStation 5

Sony has finally pulled wraps off its much-awaited Sony PS5, the next generation of Sony’s gaming console on Thursday. The next-generation gaming console features a new design that stands vertically like the Xbox Series X. It comes in white and black color that matches with the DualSense controller included in the box.

It will be available in two variants: one with a 4K Blu-ray drive and a complete Digital Edition.

The Digital Edition of the PS5 is slimmer than the regular variant thanks to the removal of optical drive. Since the company has not revealed the prices yet we can just say that the Digital Edition will be cheaper than the regular model.

The device offers vents for heat dissipation on the top with USB-A and USB-C ports at the front.

The company has created a number of accessories for the PS5 including a DualSense charging station, a new HD camera, a Pulse 3D wireless headset, and a media remote.

Sony PS5 is powered by an eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU and a custom AMD RDNA 2-based GPU that will provide 10.28 teraflops of power using variable frequencies on both the CPU and GPU. The company is also using an exclusive SSD solution that will provide 825GB of storage and 5.5GB/s of performance and boost load times for games.

The PS5 will also support 8K graphics, 4K graphics at a 120Hz refresh rate, and 3D audio. PS5’s DualSense controller features adaptive triggers, haptic feedback, and a dedicated create button that’s designed to share gameplay content.

The PS5 will also support more than 4,000 PlayStation 4 titles that exist today and will offer better frame rates and higher resolutions running on the PS5.

Update: PlayStation 5 (4K Blu-ray Drive) is priced at $499.99 while the Digital Edition is priced at $399.99 and both the devices will be available from November 12th in the US, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea.

Pre-orders will start from September 17th.
