While many sources claim that the PlayStation 5 will be released in 2020, a new patent may showcase the design of the upcoming console. Apparently, game devs confirmed its authenticity.
PlayStation 5 Design Patent Leaked
In May, Sony Interactive Entertainment submitted a patent to WIPO (or The World Intellectual Property Office). The patent was approved on August 13th. A reliable source retrieved images from the patent, and the design of the console is quite impressive.
The first image showcases the front of the console which sports what seems to be a V-shaped ventilation system placed in the middle of the console. Heat dissipation plays an essential role in this case since the supposed components could generate a large amount of heat.
A set of secondary images reveal several USB and DualShock ports accompanied by a power button and one for the disk tray. V-shaped ridges are also present on the edges, inferring that the ventilation system is a bit more complicated than it may seem at first sight. It is essential to keep in mind the fact that patents are not definitive, and the design could change over time.
PlayStation 5 Specs
When it comes to specs, it seems that Sony plans to convert the PlayStation 5 into a heavy hitter. The console could offer support for 8K TVs, a fidelity which is still hard to achieve even when you own a high-performance gaming PC. An advanced SSD version will reduce the loading times considerably.
A custom-made AMD processor with eight cores will handle the primary tasks. The chip is based on the Zen 2 7nm architecture. AMD will also provide the GPU, in the form of a Radeon Navi solution. The system will also offer native support for 3D audio without the need to purchase separate equipment.
The PlayStation 5’s storage features will receive a significant upgrade in the form of 24GB of RAM. 4GB will be reserved for the OS while the rest are used for playing games and performing other tasks. Games will be installed on a 2TB SSD.
