The PlayStation 5 is Sony's next-generation video game console, succeeding the PlayStation 4. It was announced in a blog post by Mark Cerny, lead system architect for the PS4, on March 21, 2019.
Details on the console are sparse, but Cerny did mention that it will be based on AMD's third-generation Ryzen CPU and Radeon Navi GPU architecture, and that it will support 8K resolution and ray tracing. Development of the console is already underway, with Sony targeting a release in "early" 2020.
The PlayStation 5 represents a major step forward for Sony's gaming ambitions. Its 8K resolution and ray tracing support should allow for some stunning visuals, while its use of AMD hardware should ensure that it remains competitive with the Xbox Scarlett and other upcoming consoles.
