Rumors and speculations are abound about Sony’s next console, the Playstation 5. However, very little is actually know about it. Speculated release window ranges between 2020 and 2021. What the console will comprise of is still up in the air, though teraflops have been thrown around the last few days.
The latest performance leaks come from a someone who claims to be a third-party developer on Pastebin. And it claims a staggering 14 TFLOPS of performance, which is three times higher than the current gen PS4 Pro’s 4.2 TFLOPS. This will be achieved using AMD’s 7nm Zen 2 based CPU with 8 cores/16 threads, and a custom Navi GPU. It will have 24GB of GDDR6 graphics memory and 4GB DDR4 RAM. These are some might claims for sure, but like any leak/rumour, it’s best to take information like this with pinch of salt.
The post also says the PS5 will have a hybrid 2TB SSHD drive, and will upscale to 8K. Considering the fact that consoles still have to go a long way when it comes to 4K, 8K seems a little far-fetched. The rumoured price is around $499.
One of the interesting things mentioned in the post is that PS Plus subscribers will get access to a 4K remaster of PUBG (but why?). It also mentions the exclusives we can expect going forward, including Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us 2. Where it gets a little sketchy is that the post mentions that GTA VI will release in 2020, and will be timed exclusive on the PS5. As much as fans of Sony and PlayStation may want that to be true, it’s hard to believe that Rockstar would limit their bestselling franchise to a single platform, even if it is for a limited amount of time.
As far as concrete details about the console are concerned, sadly, there’s no news of any sort on that end. But hey, it’s still fun to speculate, right?
