Under The Hood
For those who are not familiar with dev kits, it is a prototype of the gaming console that a manufacturer sends to a game developer so they can test the compatibility of their games in the manufacturer’s console. Currently, there are talks floating around suggesting that PS5 dev kits are already in the hands of some game developers.
Although there is no concrete evidence to back up the claim, it is hard to just let something this big to just slip away. Also, parties that receive the dev kits are subjected to non-disclosure agreements that restrict them to provide adequate info about the suggested rumor.
Another noteworthy report came to surface saying that a Sony employee is working closely with AMD Ryzen CPU. With this news, many speculated that AMD will have a great influence in the next big project of Sony which will be the PS5. Reports suggest that the next generation console will use advanced chipset structure from AMD’s technology both for their processors and the console’s GPU.
Xbox One is probably the heaviest hitter when it comes to specs in the current generation consoles. So we are expecting that the PS5 will feature a native 4K graphics in all of the games in the platform. They might also consider giving a retouch on their handheld gaming console since Nintendo Switch was a huge success.
