If you happen to be looking to buy Sony's PlayStation 5 (PS5) to perhaps upgrade your PS4 or something older, or maybe you already have a nice gaming PC but are curios about the other side, wondering and trying to explore what you get, today may be a good day to look at it.
That's because Amazon and Sony are currently offering the PS5 at $349 (all buying links below) as a bundle with a Sony TV. While this isn't the best offer if you already got a TV recently and aren't looking for a new one yet, the discounts are quite good and are hard not to recommend in case you are looking to build an entire gaming setup around Sony's console.
Here's how the PS5 compares to its preceding PS4:
|CPU||8x Zen 2 Cores at 3.5GHz (variable frequency)||8x Jaguar Cores at 1.6GHz|
|GPU||10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz (variable frequency)||1.84 TFLOPs, 18 CUs at 800MHz|
|GPU Architecture||Custom RDNA 2||Custom GCN|
|Memory/Interface||16GB GDDR6/256-bit||8GB GDDR5/256-bit|
|Internal Storage||Custom 825GB SSD||500GB HDD|
|IO Throughput||5.5GB/s (Raw), Typical 8-9GB/s (Compressed)||Approx 50-100MB/s (dependent on data location on HDD)|
|Expandable Storage||NVMe SSD Slot||Replaceable internal HDD|
