Experience lightning fast loading with an ultra-high speed SSD, deeper immersion with support for haptic feedback, adaptive triggers and 3D Audio, and an all-new generation of incredible PlayStation games.
Unfortunately, distribution issues, bots and the global chip shortage continue to hold up production of Sony’s in-demand console. There are a lots of restock dates coming up in various countries as sony doesn’t wants to delay any further. As its been over 1.5 years and still Ps5 hasn’t reached to every fans of it.
They are speeding up the production right now and the chip shortage was due to covid-19. And the shortage affected all electronic components and its production is also rising up as we go into the future.
Sony launched all new PlayStation Plus to compete with Xbox, Bundles with three variety of subscriptions which offer different benefits based on the plans you have chosen.
The PlayStation 5 is powered by a custom system on a chip (SoC) designed in tandem by AMD and Sony, integrating a custom 7 nm AMD Zen 2 CPU with eight cores running at a variable frequency capped at 3.5 Ghz. The integrated GPU is also a custom unit based on AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics architecture. The GPU has 36 compute units running at a variable frequency capped at 2.23 GHz, making it capable of a peak theoretical performance of 10 teraFLOPS. The GPU supports hardware-accelerated real-time ray tracing, a rendering technique that allows for realistic lighting and reflections. The console has 16 GB of GDDR6 SDRAM with a peak bandwidth of 448 GB/s, and integrates Bluetooth 5.1, and 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6).
Both the CPU and GPU are monitored by a special boost system incorporating AMD’s SmartShift technology that adjusts the frequency of these units based on the current activities of both to target ideal constant power drawn and a model SoC performance profile. For example, if the CPU is running at lower activity, the boost system may reduce its frequency and increase the frequency of the GPU for higher performance without otherwise affecting power use or cooling.
The cooling system includes a double-sided cooling fan for air intake that is 120 mm in diameter and 45mm thick, and a large heat sink with a standard heat pipe design thatSony says has a “shape and airflow [which] make it possible to achieve the same performance as a vapor chamber”. SoC cooling includes a liquid metal thermal conductor which sits between the SoC and heat sink. The system contains a 350-watt power supply. Sony developed the PlayStation 5 to consume less energy than the PlayStation 4 for suspended gameplay states.
The console has a new audio technology called Tempest Engine, allowing hundreds of simultaneous sound sources compared to 50 for the PlayStation 4.
The internal storage of the PlayStation 5 is a custom-built 825 GB solid-state drive (667 GB available)
The DualSense wireless controller for the PlayStation 5 was revealed on April 7, 2020. It is based on the prior DualShock controller but with modifications influenced by discussions with game designers and players. The DualSense controller has adaptive triggers with haptic feedback through voice coil actuators that can change the resistance to the player as necessary, supporting experiences such as virtually drawing an arrow from a bow.
