Earlier this week, a new patent from Sony, complete with the design of an unspecified device, surfaced online. All pointed toward the fact that it could be the design of the PlayStation 5 dev kit, but it seems like it may be the console’s final design.
On his Twitter profile, Codemasters Senior Artist Matthew Stott confirmed that the leaked design is the PlayStation 5 devkit design. He also hinted at the fact that it could even be the console’s final design. Adding more fuel to the fire is the fact that Stott deleted his tweet shortly after posting it.
The PlayStation 5 has yet to be revealed in full. This will happen in February, according to rumors, when Sony will hold a new PlayStation Meeting to show both the console and the games currently in development for it. The Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima will also be shown at the event.
As for what we know about the PlayStation 5, it’s been confirmed that the CPU will be based on the third generation of AMD’s Ryzen Line and the GPU will support ray tracing.
The CPU is based on the third generation of AMD’s Ryzen line and contains eight cores of the company’s new 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture. The GPU, a custom variant of Radeon’s Navi family, will support ray tracing, a technique that models the travel of light to simulate complex interactions in 3D environments.
The PlayStation 5 console has yet to be fully unveiled. We will keep you updated on it as soon as possible, so stay tuned to Wccftech for all the latest news.
