Sony has finally revealed the specifications and hardware details of its next-generation home console, the PlayStation 5.

The PS5 will feature a custom eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU clocked at 3.5GHz and a custom GPU based on AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture hardware that promises 10.28 teraflops and 36 compute units clocked at 2.23GHz.

Additional GPU power will allow for higher resolution in games, but a major new feature that benefits the visuals of games even further is ray tracing. Ray tracing simulates the way light moves in real life, and how it bounces off various surfaces.

It will also have 16GB of GDDR6 RAM and a custom 825GB SSD.

Where it took a PS4 around 20 seconds to load a single gigabyte of data, the goal with the PS5’s SSD is to enable loading five gigabytes of data in a single second, PlayStation hardware lead Mark Cerny detailed at the announcement.

It will also feature 4K Blu-ray drive and will still support discs, but those games will still require installation to the internal SSD.

The custom SSD inside uses a standard NVMe SSD, allowing for future upgrades, but one sill need an SSD that can meet Sony’s high-spec standards here — at least 5.5GB/s.

A recent research note from famed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed that Apple could launch their first ARM-based MacBook in 2021.

Like x86 processors from Intel or AMD, ARM designs are usually associated with mobile devices because of their greater power efficiency, giving products like the iPad long battery life without the need for active cooling.

The analyst believes that by switching to ARM-based chipsets and not relying on Intel for processors, Apple could save as much as 40-60 per cent, reports The Verge.
