After PS4, Sony has almost made the last finishing of PS5 or Playstation 5. The world is waiting for the release of the latest PlayStation. It has been a long time since Sony unveiled PS4. Meanwhile, Xbox has taken some shared of PS, and the trend of having Xbox is growing fast. Though Sony has not revealed any info about the probable specifications and features of PS5, the world has its answers on it, and tech enthusiasts around the globe have made some concrete predictions of the PS5 features and specs after analysing numerous rumours and leaks.
PS (Playstation) 5 Features and Specs
Let’s move to the zone of interest and the core area of searching that you have been here for.
At first, let’s talk about the processor which works in the hearts of all devices. Processing systems and the speed of processing has improved a lot since we started using smart technologies, from phone to PS, etc.
PS5 Display- A New Technology, Optical Wave Guide
Looking at the release date of PS5 which we have predicted is mid-2018; we can confirm one thing that PS5 will run on optical waveguides technology instead of electron-based OLED technology for display and processing. Use of photon technology instead of electron speeds up overall processing time and performance as well.
- Optical Wave Guide technology: This is a new technology for the screens of the future. Once OLED entered the market LCD becomes dead. And hopefully, with the introduction of OWGT, OLED will start disappearing.
- How it works: light (photon) is thrown and directed through a specially designed liquid crystal grid. The beams of the photon divided and merged together again on the opposite side that makes an image! It uses little electricity and produces less heat.
PS5 RAM- Advanced transistorless RAM for your play station
There is a rumour that upcoming play station will include new transistorless RAM. Intel's current research on the same has added some more nods to the rumour. These type of RAMs are known as "3D Xpoint RAM".
- 3D Xpoint RAM: This is the most advanced RAM. No commercial production has started yet. Some new technologies that make this RAM highly stable and advanced are given below-
- It uses no electricity to store data while all traditional RAM needs electricity to store data.
- This RAM is non-volatile and stackable.
- It does not use any transistor to read and write operation.
- The research team of Intel Inc. has promised 125 times more bit/cell density than DRAM. All these things make the RAM more stable, efficient.
Hard Drive or will it be fully Cloud-based?
The technology is growing faster than we could ever imagine. There is a chance that PS5 may come up with fully functional cloud based storage capacity, but when we think about the reality, we stumble upon the idea. According to the real scenarios, the PS5 will feature a 6 TB hard drive with 2 TB extra storage. There is no immediate chance that PS5 will go for full cloud-based system soon.
Forget TV; it's the VR Age
This is the era of virtual reality gears. This feature of PS5 is a true demand of time. Think a second, how much fun it will be when you play games like Gods of war or grand theft auto (GTA) using VR. Make your living room an arena of games. Your child will also love it; we can bet. Though VR is still under huge changes within few years, it will develop a lot to equip its technology with Playstation 5. For those who are still thinking that PS5 may have a connectivity option with TV, let's have a bet on it? Do you? 🙂
Holographic Display for taking thrills a level up?
Does it sound crazy? Let me tell you one thing- Ostendo, a silicon valley based company, has been working on this for a couple of years and has successfully tested its machines. The exciting part of these tests is that these reveals a new world where the newly developed chipset got the ability to project high definition video onto a big 48-inch diagonal surface with the help of its multiple projection systems.
Keep checking here for more updated and more accurate speculations of Playstation 5 features and specs. Inform me if you have found something interesting about PS5. We will update that also, after all; these are now at the stage of speculations till now.
PS5 Release Date
