At EGX 2019 last weekend in the UK, Digital Foundry editors managed to confirm that the leaked system-on-a-chip (SoC) code name - Prospero - is true and applies to PlayStation 5, which means that Sony's new hardware is likely to have a 3.2GHz processor.
Is that a lot or not? A lot compared to the current generation, especially considering the technological differences between the Ryzen units and Jaguar-based processors that power PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. On the other hand, this is not a very impressive result for modern PCs - but it should not have been expected to be otherwise. The PS5 should have enough power to amaze us with its visual bells and whistles and expansive, vibrant worlds of massive scale.
We'll find out more about the next generation of PlayStation in February, during the Sony event. The device will be available for sale in the holiday season of next year.
