Ready for PS5, will you?

The PS5 (or PlayStation 5) is the next-generation PlayStation console, with a release date confirmed for late 2020. During Sony's The Future of Gaming event on June 11, we finally got our first look at the PS5's design and the PS5 games line-up, which includes the likes of Horizon Forbidden West and a remake of Demon's Souls
The PS5 design reveal was a shock, and it included the surprise unveiling of the PS5 Digital Edition - a streamlined, all-digital console without a disc drive. It's another sign that console manufacturers have their eye on a future without physical media. While Sony didn't reveal the PS5 price or release date, we now know a lot of what we can expect when the PlayStation 5 launches later this year.
Earlier this year, Sony revealed the DualSense PS5 controller, which includes a slew of impressive-sounding features like haptic feedback, adaptive triggers and a built-in mic. What really stands out about the DualSense controller, though, is its radically different look and space-age black-and-white color scheme, and it turns out the PS5 design has a similar look – this marks a significant departure from its predecessors. 
Just as important as the DualSense Controller are the PS5 specs, discussed in detail at Sony's March reveal event. Lead system architect Mark Cerny provided us with a deep dive into the PS5's system architecture, revealing the technical inner workings of the PS5. We'll cover them in more detail down below, but the short of it is that the PS5 is rocking an AMD Zen 2-based CPU with 8 cores at 3.5GHz, 16GB of GDDR6 memory and a custom RDNA 2 AMD GPU that puts out 10.28 TFLOPs of processing power.
When it comes to other PS5 features, we know the next-gen console will have ray-tracing, a super-fast SSD, a built-in 4K Blu-ray player and will be backwards compatible with a huge swathe of the PS4's game catalogue. It may even have voice assistant capabilities to tell you how long it will take to beat levels. So far, then, the PS5 is living up to the hype, but it's the games that'll make all the difference.
