PS5 is releasing this Nov, here are all the key facts about Sony's next-gen console
The PS5 is a lovely bit of kit that looks nothing like PS4. There are two models – the standard PS5 and an discless Digital Edition. The PS5 is 390mm tall, 260mm deep and 104mm wide, weighing 4.5kg. The Digital Edition is only 3.9kg.
The PS5 is powered by an AMD CPU that boasts eight Zen 2 cores, and a beefy GPU with 10.28 teraflops. The console's 825GB NVMe solid-state drive should slash load times. It's a console purpose-built to play games at 4K.
PS5's pad is a bold evolution of the DualShock 4. New features include haptic feedback rumble features, dynamic adaptive triggers on L2 and R2, and a Share-style Create button.
