When will the PS5 release date be?
Sony has officially established that the PS5 is called the PlayStation 5, making way for the real enthusiasm to begin. It’s coming ‘in time’ for Holiday 2020, meaning this time next year, we could well have a PS5 console in our seats as explained SIEE President, Jim Ryan, on the PlayStation Blog.
What Are The Specifications and performance?
The Company has already confirmed that the PS5 will be running on an AMD CPU chip that’s based on the third generation of AMD’s Ryzen line. It’ll be an eight-core, custom-made, beast based on the Company’s new 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture. The CPU is a custom variant of AMD Radeon’s Navi family and will support ray tracing – an effect that is a staple of Hollywood, and one that’s beginning to appear in high-end PC processors and the Nvidia RTX gaming line.
Sony Also State that they will include a second innovation called adaptive triggers, which will be incorporated into the trigger buttons (L2/R2). Developers can program the resistance of the triggers so that you feel the tactile sensation of drawing a bow and arrow or accelerating an off-road vehicle through rocky terrain. In combination with the haptics, this can produce a powerful experience that better simulates various actions. Game creators have started to receive early versions of the new controller, and we can’t wait to see where their imagination goes with these new features at their disposal.
What will the DualShock 5 Look Like?
Although Sony has now confirmed that the PS5 is, well, called the PlayStation 5, there’s no word on what the controller will be called. For now, we’re going to call it the DualShock 5, building on the naming scheme that Sony has cemented the past few console generations.
Although there’s no name, Sony has started talking about it. It’s going to be more substantial than the DualShock 4, but lighter than an Xbox One pad with batteries inside, and aside from USB-C charging, two key innovations are intrinsic to the new pad.
1. Haptic Feedback
Gone is the rumble tech of other controllers, with Sony instead focusing on haptic feedback that’s more akin to an iPhone. “With haptics, you truly feel a broader range of feedback, so crashing into a wall in a race car feels much different than making a tackle on the football field,” explains Ryan in the PlayStation Blog. “You can even get a sense of a variety of textures when running through fields of grass or plodding through mud.”
2. Adaptive Triggers
Building on the sort of tech found in the Xbox One Elite controller, and the PS5 pad will focus on adaptive triggers that more accurately represent what you’re doing in-game. For example, you’ll be able to feel the tension as a draw a bow and arrow or hit the gas on a rally car across rocky terrain.
“In combination with the haptics, this can produce a powerful experience that better simulates various actions,” adds Ryan. “Game creators have started to receive early versions of the new controller, and we can’t wait to see where their imagination goes with these new features at their disposal.”
