PS5 full specs have been revealed and we’ve got them for you below… and compared with the Xbox Series X’s full specs too.
Here’s what Mark Cerny today detailed:
- CPU: 8 Zen 2 Cores @ 3.5GHz (variable frequency)
- GPU: 10.28 teraflops, 36 CUs @ 2.23GHz (variable frequency)
- Memory: 16GB GDDR6, 256-bit
- Memory Bandwidth: 448GB per second
- Internal Storage: Custom 825GB SSD
- IO Throughput: Raw: 5.5GB per-second; compressed: Typical 8-9GB per-second
- Expandable Storage: NVMe SSD Slot
- External Storage: USB HDD Support
- Optical Drive 4K: UHD Blu-ray Drive
All up, the PS5’s offering less teraflops and a smaller SSD, but the option to add another SSD for a larger one. RAM’s on par with the Xbox Series X… so all up, we’d expect the PS5 to cost less than the Xbox Series X, but also to be less powerful.
