Sony has revealed the first details on its next generation PlayStation console. The console will support 8K resolution rendering and also features backwards compatibility with PlayStation 4 games.
As with previous PlayStation hardware, it will once again feature custom components. The console is said to feature a custom octa-core AMD Ryzen 7nm Zen 2 CPU and a custom AMD Navi GPU. The GPU will support raytracing, a technology that has just recently been established on the PC market.
Sony revealed the specifications of the next generation console in an exclusive conversation with technology website Wired. In the interview the company stated that it had already been working on the new hardware for roughly four years and that it would not release in 2019.
