I think the takeaways are:
8 core Zen 2 chip
Custom Navi with Ray Tracing
Ram (not really brought up)
Storage, definitely an SSD in use, looks like a NVME at least but seems to hint about IOPS which is making me think it will end up being more like an Optane module...
It will be expensive that's for sure, and as far as 8K goes.... I mean that seems like a stretch :O
I don't know much about that. Does it mean it'll still be using a janky HDD then?
I'd think it will have to still have some form of SSD in it, with install sizes going the way they are (and discs being pretty much just install media at this point) I don't see how they can make do with just 1tb of SSD which would be the most I can imagine them using.
Optane is like caching memory, so in theory it could be sized to hold only like the last 3 games you played perhaps...
With a HDD for the rest (Hopefully SATA 3 this time around as consoles were somewhat limited by using Sata 2, hence why 5.4k USB3 drives were still quick than the internal one)
That makes me excited
Really happy to hear about backwards capabilities
I guess, with consoles being x86 now its should be very easy.
I hope I just put any disc in day one. Rather than wait for a game specific support/ patch.
How will they fleece us for HD Remasters in the future?
i will hold off getting one until the psvr 2 is released, if they really do one.
i did see somewhere the other day that it will be higher res and wireless, for $250, dream on..
all i want from it is a slightly bigger "sweet spot"
The thing is - it was never about "fleecing" with regards PS3 titles.
The PS4 was simply incapable of running PS3 games - so an amount of work was required to make them available.
Native 4K60 with Ray Tracing remasters next.
With the XB1X I'm pretty sure some games just get a 4k patch rather than rebuying it? That would be good.
I of course am only messing about. Some games I was more than happy to rebuy where work was clearly done to improve them
I know I keep banging this drum, but I hope the 3D audio helps push forward gaming audio in general. It's one area that has really stagnated.
Damn that's some exciting info. Ms are going to have their work cut out for them if they want to beat Sony next gen!
Still at least 2 years away. So anything can happen between then and now.
When looking at the PC market, tech has slowed down over the past 5 years. Even the chip manufactures are struggling.
2 years away really? I was kind of assuming it would be an Xmas 2020 release or just before?
Yeah, I'd think 2020.
Yeah the Sony's head of PlayStation, said last May the company will take the next three years to further develop the PS5.
So about one year on from that statement, we have 2 years now.
I can see it officially be announced in 2020 but released 2021 perhaps.
2021 with dev kits out now? I don't think that's right. November 2020 at the absolute latest.
Fair enough! No doubt we’ll see it announced E3 2020 with a 2012 release hopefully!
