PlayStation 5 (PS5) High-End Specs Leaked: Is It Real?
It’s no secret that Sony is working on a sequel to the PS4 Pro for the next-generation console war. Although the company has been tight-lipped about the details regarding their next-gen console (even the name is unknown so we don’t know if it will be named PlayStation 5 or PS5), that hasn’t stopped some leaks from coming out.
So what new details do we have this time about the PS5? Well, apparently, its specs had been leaked. And what’s really interesting is that, as noted by a report, the source came from a forum that accurately revealed Wii U’s specs prior to its release.
According to the report, the leaked was spotted at Beyond3D forum. The leak details that the PS5 will supposedly feature an eight-core Zen2 CPU, Navi GPU, 20GB of RAM for games with other 4GB for the operating system. In addition to that, it could also come with 2TB HDD.
Assuming that the leak is correct, the report notes that it will make the PS5 quite expensive. How much? Well, the report didn’t give a specific number.
Nevertheless, regarding the PS5’s price tag, analysts predicted that the price would be less than $500. Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter said that it will not cost more than $500. Meanwhile, Ace Securities Hideki Yasuda said that although Sony’s next-generation console will be “premium console“, it will be less than $499.
When Can We Expect The PS5?
There have been quite a few rumors and speculations regarding the announcement and release date of the PS5, making it a bit confusing already at times on what leak/rumor/speculation/prediction to believe in. Just to make it simple, so far, the most popular or ideal scenario coined by many is that Sony will reveal some details about the PS5 in 2019 and then release it in 2020.
