1.) Cerny confirmed that Sony’s “next-gen console” will not launch in 2019 (we now know 2020 is the release window). He did not refer to the console as the PS5 or PlayStation 5, although Sony’s traditional console naming system would indicate that is what it will be called.
2.) Cerny confirmed that the PS5’s CPU is based on the third generation of AMD’s Ryzen line of processors and features eight cores of the firm’s new 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture.
3.) The PlayStation 5’s GPU has been confirmed by Cerny as a custom variant of Radeon’s Navi family and will support ray tracing (a next-gen lighting technique that models the travel of light in complex game worlds).
4.) Cerny also confirmed the AMD chip in the PS5 has a custom 3D audio unit that will deliver far more immersive in-game sound.
5.) The PlayStation VR headset will be compatible with the PS5 and, although Cerny would not comment on whether a new PSVR headset was incoming, he did say that “VR is very important to us”.
6.) Cerny confirmed the PlayStation 5 installed with an SSD out of the box, which was shown to load eighteen times faster than on PS4.
7.) Cerny confirmed that thanks to the new SSD, the PS5 would be able to render 2D worlds much faster than PS4, too, meaning that gamers will get larger game worlds and be able to move through them faster while fidelity is maintained.
8.) Cerny confirmed the PlayStation 5 will support 8K graphics,
