PS5 With 8-core CPU; Wireless PSVR2 Inbound?

Journalists from the Japanese magazine Famitsu have confirmed an important detail about PlayStation 5 specs. The console will be equipped with an 8-core and 16 thread AMD processor based on the Zen 2 architecture. We also learned when the official announcement will take place, which will reveal details of the specification and more.

More information about PS5.

Famitsu magazine has published information on its official website about the recently announced PlayStation 5 specs. As we know, the device is to have components from AMD -CPU based on Zen 2 architecture (used in the popular Ryzen 3000 series) and GPU from Navi family (RDNA architecture). Japanese journalists have confirmed that the CPU will be an 8-core and 16-thread model. The full announcement of the new Sony console - together with all the details we are interested in - will be made in February next year.

The PS5 will be compatible with PlayStation VR, but it looks like the future will also see a new generation of Sony virtual reality goggles, which we mentioned already in March this year. At the beginning of October, the US patent office approved a patent filed by the Japanese corporation. The device will look like the first goggles, but will be equipped with a number of additional features and technologies - including a motion tracking system based on cameras mounted on the goggles themselves and new Move controllers. The most important detail, however, is that PSVR2 will be wireless.
