If you’ve been following the game, you would have no problem seeing how play station 5 is the future of gaming.

The latest Sony gaming console is just amazingly impressive in all aspects. The design is unlike the regular designs we’ve seen, and this design looks really cool.

Its colour scheme chosen for the console also happens to be more astonishing than anything we’ve ever seen.

The console further comes with power no other console can match.

In short, there’s currently no console that’s a good match for the PS5, not even the Xbox’s Series X.

However, I’m not here to give a summary of how epic the PS 5 is.

I actually intend discussing every aspect of the console. And if you happen to be a gamer or have some interest in the gaming world, you should stick with me till the end of this content.

PS5 Price in Nigeria

The Play station 5 from Sony retails for $499.99 which is 195,000 Naira in Nigeria and the ps5 digital price is $399.99 which is 156,000 Naira.

The digital edition doesn’t come with disk space which is the major difference. And the prices above are what the consoles sells directly from Sony. You might need to spend like 10,000 to 15,000 Naira more to get them to the country.

Introduction

Sony PS5, as most of us know, is the 5th generation of the console.

But rather than just being a generation featuring faster hardware, it’s a generation that comes with more efficient hardware, more impressive capabilities, and entirely new capabilities. In short, the improvement over the PS4 is very huge.

The following are the items confirmed for the Play Station 5 platform.

  • The Console itself
  • A controller named the DualSense
  • Headphone named the Pulse 3D Headset
  • A wireless charging station for charging controllers
  • 1080P HD camera
  • A media remote.

These components are all interesting, so it’s going to make some sense, to discuss them individually.

1.) The PS5 Console

It is hands-down the most powerful of all consoles in existence.

And it would retain this title for many years to come, as its improvement over the PS4 happens to be just too massive.

With the information will currently have, not even the upcoming Xbox stands a chance.

Almost all hardware of the console are better, but the aspects with the most improvement happen to be the aspect of graphics, storage, and sound.

Central Processing Unit {CPU}

  • Custom AMD Zen 2 CPU [Octa-core; 3.50 GHz; 7nm process]

Starting with the CPU, the Sony PlayStation 5 comes with an octa-core processor.

The processor of the PS4 is also an octa-core processor, but the PS4 processor is far from being a match for that featured in the PS 5.

Being more elaborate, the CPU that powers the Sony PlayStation 5 is a custom AMD Zen 2 processor.

It is created with a 7 nm process, which is of course massively more power-efficient than the 28 nm processor featured in some PS4s.

The cores of the Zen 2 can further be clocked at up to 3.50 GHz. This is also clearly more impressive than the cores of the PS4 processor which can’t be clocked over 2.75 GHz.

Random Access Memory {RAM}

  • 16 GB RAM [GDDR6; 256-bit interface; 448 GB/s]

Another aspect where the console got improvement, is the aspect of RAM.

PlayStation 5 will come with a 16 GB RAM.

This RAM, of course, has a larger storage space, compared to the 8 GB RAM of the PS4.

But not only is the PS5 RAM larger, it also happens to be faster.

The PS5’s 16 GB RAM is rated at 448 GB/s, compared to the 176 GB/s of the PS4 RAM.

However, even though the Sony Playstation 5’s RAM happens to be a lot better than PS4 RAM, Sony would have ordinarily used a more impressive RAM.

But thanks to the impressive work done in the aspect of storage, it turns out there’s no need to use a more impressive RAM. More information on this would be provided when discussing the console’s storage.

Graphics Processing Unit {GPU}

  • Custom AMD RDNA 2 GPU [36 compute units; 2.23 GHz; 1.02 Teraflops]

As stated earlier, the improvement made to the aspect of graphics, is one of the most impressive about the Sony PlayStation 5.

And a lot of thanks to the impressive work Sony and AMD put into the creation of a special GPU.

The GPU featured on the console is one based on the AMD RDNA 2 GPU.

This GPU makes it possible for the 480p, 720p, 1,080i, 1,080p, 4K, and 8K graphics to be enjoyed on the console.

But this isn’t actually why we’ve been saying the graphics of the gaming console is more mind-blowing.

What actually makes its graphics so impressive, happens to be the new features its GPU features and the new graphics engines incorporated in it.

It might be difficult to understand how the details would make the console graphics better, if you’re not a hardware guy.

In other words, let me simply stated that games specifically developed for the device platform would be taking graphics to the next level.

The graphics would be so realistic and cool that you will ditch your PS4, after playing a single game on it.

Providing more information about the custom AMD RDNA 2 GPU used, the graphics processor comes with a total of 36 compute units.

Each of these compute units are capable of being clocked at up to 2.23 GHz. For those who want the GPU’s rating in Teraflops, the RDNA 2 is rated at 10.28 Teraflops.

You should further be aware of the fact that the GPU is also capable of doing anything the GPUs of the PS4 and the PS4 Pro can. In other words, expect most PS4 games to be playable on the console.

Internal Storage

  • Custom 825 GB SSD storage [8 – 9 GB/s]

The aspect of storage is probably the most significant aspect where the console saw improvement.

In the PlayStation 4, the storage device featured is an HDD storage which can read data at speeds between 50 and 100 MB/s.

In other words, it typically takes about 20 seconds to load 1 GB of data.

While 20 seconds to load 1 GB of data might seem good enough for regular computer users, this performance is quite terrible in the gaming world.

In the gaming world of today, games are usually several gigabytes in size. In other words, it is very common to see situations where close to several hundreds of megabytes have to be loaded.

And when such situations arise, gamers are often forced to wait for long periods before they can proceed with the game. If you find it difficult to grasp what I’m saying, let me ask you this.

Have you ever experienced something like this: you got killed in a game, and when it’s time to restart the level, you had to wait for a long period before the game gets ready again.

Or have you experienced situations where you were forced to spend a lot of time in an elevator, before seeing the next floor?

Well, many of this kind of things are the fault of the storage device used in the PS4. In fact, HDD drives are also the reason why there’s often limit to how fast you can drive cars and do certain things on the PS4.

In short, HDD storages, which used to be excellent in the past, have now become things crippling the advancement of console games.

But good enough, it has helped say goodbye to many problems created by HDD storages.

Rather than featuring an HDD storage, the PlayStation 5 features an SSD storage. And not just any SSD storage, the PS5 SSD storage happens to be one of the best in the world.

According to one of the pieces of information made public, by Sony, it takes only about 0.15 seconds for the SSD storage to load 1 GB of data.

In other words, the SSD storage used in the console is about 133 times faster than the HDD storage of the PS4. With such an incredible reading speed, get ready to say goodbye to things like endless loading time and limit to how fast you can drive fast.

The beauty of using an SSD storage is however not limited to what’s discussed in the previous paragraph.

Another reason why it makes so much sense to use an SSD storage is that it also creates room for more efficient use of the console’s RAM.

According to Mark Cerny [the PlayStation Lead System Architect], in the PS4, there’s often need to transfer data from the console’s storage to the RAM, before they are needed.

In other words, a lot of times, a good portion of the console’s RAM are not used to store data the game needs immediately.

These portions are rather used to store data needed in the future. And as a result, developers have to eliminate certain impressive things from game designs, just to make it possible for immediate and future data to fit on the RAM available.

However, with a faster SSD storage now available on the PlayStation 5 platform, there’s going to be a lesser need for storing future data in the console’s RAM, since SSD storages are fast enough to greatly reduce delays, when loading data needed.

In other words, there’s now going to be more RAM available for developers to add more impressive features to games.

According to Sony, the SSD storage device used has a storage capacity of 825 GB.

While this would be more than enough for many gamers, we’d definitely have people who’d crave more storage.

And for people who crave more storage, I’m glad to announce that the console comes with room for SSD storage expansion.

You should however note that not just any SSD storage would be compatible with the console.

But Sony has promised to provide more information about compatible SSDs, when the console launches.

You should further be aware of the fact that the PlayStation 5 would also support the use of HDD storage, with the help of USB connectivity.

But understand that its games wouldn’t work on the HDD drives. The HDD drive are rather expected to be used for media files and PS4 games.

Sound

  • Tempest 3D AudioTech

The aspect of sound is another aspect worthwhile of giving some discussion.

Sound is a thing that has existed on consoles since they came into existence. But when you look at things, graphics has recorded a massive improvement, whereas sound lags behind seriously.

No doubt about the fact that the PS4 tried to make some improvement in this aspect, but still the progress is not as good as it could be.

However, when it comes to the PS 5, Sony has really done an impressive job in the aspect of sound. And a lot of thanks to the Tempest 3D AudioTech engine. A thing like this engine is not probably something you’ve ever heard about.

However, you can think of it as a processor meant for sound, just like the way GPU is meant for graphics. The Tempest 3D AudioTech features so many impressive technologies like the HRTF.

But to make it simple to understand the jargon I’m saying, the Tempest 3D AudioTech would be making it possible for the its sounds to be so real that you start to feel like you’re inside a game being played.

I understand the concept of 3D sound is not a thing new to some of you, but believe me when I say the PS5 console takes sound to the next level.

2.) DualSense Controller

The console is not the only impressive thing about the new console.

Another really cool thing about the gaming platform is its controller which is known as the DualSense.

The DualSense controller is more impressive than any controller you would have ever seen.

This controller, of course, takes the general shape of a typical PlayStation controller, but some really thoughtful improvement were made to the DualSense, compared to those of older generations of the Sony PlayStation.

Giving details about improvements made to the DualSense, the controller was designed to be more comfortable and provide more immersion.

For a very long time, Sony has been able to make its console more immersive, when it comes to sight and [to some extent] hearing.

However, the sense of touch has been left to lag behind seriously, for so many years.

But with the new DualSense, the sense of touch has now been taken into very serious consideration, such that when games are being played with it, you get to feel like you’re inside the game itself.

Can you imagine experiencing a drift on your skin, when racing a car? Yes, that’s the kind of immersion I’m talking about!

However, the immersion is not going to be as impressive as putting on a gaming suit, but still, it’s a lot better than any existing gaming controller can offer.

This immersion the DualSense controller promises to offer, would be made possible with the help “Haptic actuators” featured around the controller and inside it.

Another thing worthwhile of being mentioned is that the controller comes with a USB 3.1 Type-C port.

With a USB Type-C port featured [rather than a USB 2.0 port], it means there’s better room for rapid charging.

You should also be aware of the fact that the DualSense not only supports wired charging, it’s also possible to charge it wirelessly.

More information on this would be provided, when discussing the wireless charging station.

Chatting while playing games is a thing that’s becoming a normal thing in the gaming world.

And Sony decided to take this into serious consideration, featuring a built-in speaker and a built-in microphone in the DualSense Controller.

These built-in speaker and microphone are far from being impressive, and they are only meant for people who can’t afford a proper headset or sound system and microphone.

It has also become a normal thing for gamers to record gameplays, then share them with other people or on platforms. And support for this is a thing the controller also comes with.

The DualSense controller is seen to feature a dedicated “Create” button, which helps in creating and sharing gameplays.

3.) Pulse 3D Headset

Earlier on, I talked about the Tempest 3D AudioTech engine and how it takes 3D sound to the next level.

Well, the Pulse 3D Headset happens to be one of the pieces of the puzzle that’s going to make that possible.

While the Tempest 3D AudioTech engine would handle the job of creating digital immersive sound, the Pulse 3D Headset would be responsible for converting those impressive digital signals to their real-world form.

You should however understand that this doesn’t mean the Pulse 3D Headset would be the only way to enjoy 3D audio, it would actually also be possible to enjoy 3D audio via a sound system.

In other words, the Pulse 3D Headset is just meant for people who prefer a headset over a sound system.

4.) Wireless Charging Station

The charging station, as the name implies, is simply meant for charging the console controllers.

And due to the way the charging station works, it would be impossible to charge the controller wirelessly, while playing games.

To charge the controller, while playing games, you’d have to make use of the USB 3.1 Type-C port featured on the controller.

5.) HD Camera

Sony Interactive Entertainment confirmed that an HD camera would be available for the upcoming console.

The camera revealed to the public, is a dual-lens camera, with each lens having resolutions of 1,080p. The camera further happens to be a bit enhanced.

However, when it comes to the essence of the camera, we can’t provide any information about that for now.

It’s currently unclear what the camera is meant for. However, as you would expect, there have been speculations.

We have many people who claim the camera is meant for video chatting, while playing games on the console. We also have people who claim the camera to be meant to assist, when using the PSVR.

But as stated, all these are mere speculation, and we’d probably have to wait for the launch before finding out the actual use of the HD camera.

6.) Media Remote

The watching and streaming of videos is a thing that has been on the PlayStation platform for a long time, and this feature is not going away in PlayStation 5.

Rather than going away, Sony rather decided to improve this feature, by adding a media remote to the list of things that would come with the console.

The remote control comes with a total of 19 buttons which are nicely positioned.

And considering, the shape, layout of the button, and a number of things, we’re quite confident people would have great user experience using the remote control.

58 Confirmed Games Compatible with PS5

Giving more information about games, we have been able to confirm 58 games that would be coming to the PlayStation 5 console.
