- Sony’s PlayStation 5 appears to be a hugely powerful console, bringing a high-end CPU and GPU, as well as an incredibly fast SSD.
- In comparison to the previous PS generation, we can see a major step forward across the board.
- Sony has also unveiled the official specs for the DualSense controller.
During the last couple of months, we’ve been seeing plenty of PlayStation 5 vs. Xbox Series X comparisons. Even though checking out their specs should reveal plenty in terms of comparing the new consoles, we’ll need to wait until both of those come out (which will happen in less than two months from now).
However, it’s always good to check the official list of specifications, and that’s precisely what Sony has provided us with. As you’re about to see, the PlayStation 5 is truly a next-generation device, especially when compared to its predecessor.

We can see that the PlayStation 5 goes a big step forward in comparison to its predecessor, in pretty much every possible sense. All of the PS5 specs listed above go hand-in-hand with what Sony was telling us these previous months.
In other words, games that take full advantage of PS5’s specs should look much better, run at a higher frame rate, and they should load much faster. Of course, playing PS4 games is still an option, where the faster SSD found in the PS5 should provide shorter loading times.
As you can see above, Sony has also unveiled the exact dimensions of the two new PS5 consoles. And yes, these are not only going to be the biggest PlayStation consoles to date – they are the biggest gaming consoles yet, overall.
In addition to revealing the PS5 specs, Sony has also unveiled the official specifications of the DualSense controller. Plenty about the new controller has already been known – but additional tidbits now paint a more complete picture. Check out the following table.

As we’ve reported earlier today, the DualSense controller will come priced at $69.99. This means that the new controller will be $10 more in comparison to the DualShock 4 controller. Seeing its specs above, we can conclude that plenty of new technology has been implemented, which is one of the reasons for the new (and higher) price.
Finally, allow us to remind you that the PS5 will come priced at $499.99 for the Standard edition, and $399.99 for the Digital Edition. The next-generation consoles made by Sony will be available starting November 12 in select countries, and November 19 in the rest of the world. And also, you can expect a whole slate of new accessories as well.
