Alleged details of the PlayStation 5 console have been posted online. The incredible claimed specifications include 8K upscaling, 2 TB storage utilizing NAND, 24 GB GDDR6 RAM, VR, ray tracing, backwards compatibility and more. There’s also mention of the widely believed custom AMD Ryzen CPU and the Navi GPU – that apparently offers 14 teraflops of compute performance.

A post on Pastebin has been spotted by GamesRadar that makes for fascinating reading, even if a lot of the details included seem difficult to believe. It has been made by someone who claims to have worked on a Triple A game being developed for the PlayStation 5. Of course, the post could have been made by anyone who just wants to speculate on what the next-gen console will bring with it, but if all of this was genuine, it would truly be a world-beating video game console. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Release in either March or November 2020
  • Backwards compatible
  • Can play physical games or downloaded titles
  • 7nm custom CPU based on AMD’s Ryzen processors: eight cores and 16 threads
  • 7nm custom GPU based on AMD’s Navi technology: 14 teraflops of power
  • Ray tracing
  • VR
  • 4K and 8K upscaling
  • 24 GB GDDR6 RAM and 4 GB DDR4 (OS); claim that PS5 devkits have 32 GB
  • 2 TB “HDD” – NAND flash
  • PSVR 2 introduction
  • Dualshock 5 controller with camera for VR

The alleged price for all of this magnificent hardware and technology? Apparently, just US$499 (the author of the paste data states that there is a US$100 loss on each console at launch). This is only US$100 more than the PS4’s introductory price – and look at all the features that the PlayStation 5 could boast of! Strangely enough, there was a recent rumor about a custom gaming-related AMD engineering sample with a codename that suggested almost 14 teraflops of compute performance. But it’s best to take this text file post with at least a cup of salt to pinch from.
