Sony PS5 (hopefully before Christmas of 2020)

Recommended Posts

The Sony Playstation 5 is due out roughly in November (2020) for about $500 (both subject to change).

It sounds bad-ass!

The PS5 will have an AMD Zen 2-based CPU with 8 cores @ 3.5GHz, 16Gb of GDDR6 memory, a custom RDNA 2 AMD GPU that puts out 10.28 Tflops of processing power, and an 825Gb SSD.

All the specs of the XBOX Series X are higher than that of the PS5, so i would wait until they are both released for reviews before deciding on a potential winner.

They both look impressive but as always specs alone never tell the entire story and it will come down to other factors, exclusives for each, pricing, real time performance.

The push for ray-tracing is great, but if performance suffers using it, it might change some people's opinions not understanding the differences.

Since both systems are suppose to offer good backwards compatibility to previous systems, my guess is for the most part those in MS camp will stay with MS, and the same for the Sony camp.

You're right, Neil9000, the Xbox looks better on paper, but as Headrush69 mentioned, one would probably stick with the hardware that can play their older games.

But the "high-techness" of either one is pretty awesome.  A while back I hooked-up my Intellivision to my 'modern' TV, and 2 pixels were about the size of a domino. 😀

The first Video Game I played was Lunar Lander (I think that's what it was called) on a VAX/VMS system.  Just thin green lines.  But at the time, it was sooo cool!

I've seen many different images of the PS5, but this one looks the wildest, IMHO.  Anyone know what it's really gonna look like?

Eagerly waiting for Playstation 5 and it looks killer as well. Looking at the current scenario, I don't think it would be released in 2020, may be mid 2021.
