Sony officially confirms the first details of the next PlayStation

Sony released the first details of the successor to PlayStation 4.

On a visit to his offices in Foster City, California, the architect of the new platform, Mark Cerny, has some of the details of the technology to be combined inside, his main skill. , the plans for retro-compatibility and even some clues about its release date.

By the way, all the information we will be posting in this article is official. No rumors; although it comes from the article published solely in the magazine Wired, the official PlayStation account on Twitter linked the text describes it as "a starter of our next generation plans".

Let's start with the basics. As we have suspected, the new PlayStation as a core will have a chip made by AMD. The part corresponding to the CPU is based on the third generation of Ryzen processors and has eight Zen 2 to 7nm core. The GPU, on the other hand, is based on Navi architecture and its main novelty is the implementation of real-time raytracing, something that has so far only been seen on PC in the family of Nvidia RTX graphics cards. Graphically, it is compatible with 8K, although the first demos are made at 4K.

The chip also features a dedicated 3D audio unit, which is intended to provide an important evolutionary leap. According to Cerny, it's a little frustrating that the sound hasn't changed much between PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. With the next console, we are dreaming to show how dramatically the listening experience can be as a significant amount of power to apply. hardware to her. "It improves immersion, but despite the fact that no external hardware is needed, because Cerny works with its own speakers of our television, the true beneficiaries of this technology think the users using headphones will be.

Repeat with AMD for the processor to allow one of the features that most users require: backward compatibility. Sony has confirmed that the future PlayStation (they don't want to confirm that its name is PlayStation 5) can run its predecessor games at the same time. The Japanese company also aims to facilitate the transition between generations by publishing multiple titles that will have versions for PlayStation 4 and the new generation PlayStation. One of the most obvious candidates for this is Death Stranding, the new Hideo Kojima. While a spokesman for Wired confirmed that the game of Metal Gear Solid was published for PlayStation 4, Cerny smiled and pointed out that we certainly saw it in the two consoles. What we will certainly see in both is PlayStation VR; Although he didn't want to talk about a possible PSVR2, Cerny's said "the virtual reality is very important to us and the current PSVR helmet is compatible with the new console".

While much attention is paid to the future in streaming and digital, with Google Stages on the move, the new PlayStation will maintain its physical format, which coincides with downloads from PlayStation Store. Cerny didn't want to explain the future plans to run on the new console, but he warned that "our pioneers are in the cloud and our vision will be clearer when the launch approaches."

In what Cerny's expanded, it's what it sees as the game console of the new console and the key to the next generation: the hard drive. The next PlayStation will be standard with a fixed disk (SSD), which will dramatically reduce lower times. In fact, the engineer explained that almost everyone was talking to the developers about what they wanted most for the future console, to ask a SSD disk for storage.

It's also not a SSD. Although Cerny has not confirmed whether the new PCIe 4.0 standard is being used, it claims that the bandwidth is greater than the current PC SSD. "Raw reading speed is important, but it is also details such as input and output mechanisms or software." And to prove this, he refers to the tests. First download a Spider-Man game to a PlayStation 4 Pro. Beginning a quick journey and we see that it took a total of fifteen seconds to complete the operation. Then download the same game Spider-Man in the new console and make the same quick journey. The load is now done in less than a second. 0.8 seconds to be exact.

Finally, Cerny also dropped leads if we could see the new console in stores. Or rather, when not: the new machine's architect confirmed to Wired that the launch would not take place in 2019.
