Sony Confirm PlayStation 5 Specs and Backwards Compatibility

That ties into another aspect - it will be backwards-compatible with PS4 games, although we don't know if it goes any further back through the generations than that.

Cerny says that an AMD chip is at the heart of the PS5, with Sony tapping a custom third-gen Ryzen CPU with he new 7nm Zen 2 CPU architecture, as well as a custom variant of AMD's upcoming Radeon Navi family of graphics cards. Cerny says the console will pack a "specialized" SSD that will dramatically reduce load times, and noted it was one of the most requested features from a dev standpoint.

We're waiting patiently for news of the next generation of consoles, but that news is slow to trickle through.

- "To demonstrate, Cerny fires up a PS4 Pro playing Spider-Man, a 2018 PS4 exclusive that he worked on alongside Insomniac Games".

Discussing the SSD, Cerny said "the raw read speed is important, but so are the details of the I/O [input-output] mechanisms and the software stack that we put on top of them".

Sony had confirmed that the new platform's launch period will include several cross-platform titles, giving early adopters and folks who prefer to stick with PS4 a window to enjoy the same games. The description of a gentle transition indicates that the PS5 will be an iteration on the PS4, instead of being drastically different the way the PS3 was from its predecessor.

The other hardware upgrades are also impressive, but at a certain point the descriptions of them sound like so much marketing patter - meaning it's hard for gamers to tell how the hardware described will actually benefit them. 8K video (as well as 4K obviously) is also confirmed. Multiple studios have been working with the console, and Sony recently accelerated its release of development kits for the console.

The PS5 will support the current PlayStation VR hardware (but an update seems likely). Look at how much goodwill Microsoft accrued just by adding compatibility for Xbox 360 and original Xbox games to the One.

SIE can officially confirm the information reported in WIRED about our next-generation console, which will continue our efforts to make PlayStation the best place to play.

"We're very used to flying logos at the start of the game and graphic-heavy selection screens, even things like multiplayer lobbies and intentionally detailed loadout processes, because you don't want players just to be waiting", Cerny said.
