The PS5 will use an AMD Zen 2 CPU eight physical cores and 16 threads. The PS5 will be capable of delivering frequencies of up to 3.5GHz.

Sony’s customised version of the AMD RDNA 2 GPU features 36 compute units running at frequencies that are capped at 2.23GHz, effectively delivering 10.28TF of peak compute performance.  The console will also come with am 825GB custom SSD built-into it alongside an expandable SSD slot. It is unclear whether or not the console will make use of proprietory external storage like the Xbox Series X.

“When that worst case game arrives, it will run at a lower clock speed. But not too much lower, to reduce power by 10 per cent it only takes a couple of percent reduction in frequency, so I’d expect any downclocking to be pretty minor. All things considered, the change to a variable frequency approach will show significant gains for PlayStation gamers.”
