Every single aspect of the new Playstation 5 is a direct upgrade from the current generation PlayStation 4.

Faster memory with a larger capacity paired with an insanely fast CPU (Central Processing Unit) and a brand new GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) will allow the PlayStation 5 to hit some very high consistent frame rates throughout most games at an average resolution.


Now we have the specifications out of the way we can briefly go over the intricate design of the PlayStation 5. The design has gone through some big changes but we don't exact dimensions just yet so take it with a pinch of salt. The PlayStation 5 has gone with a white and black theme where the white houses the outside shell and the black houses the inside of the design as seen by the picture below.

In addition it seems to be taller and a slightly wider than the current generation console but its not yet confirmed to be, the larger design however is rumoured to be because the PlayStation 5 has a lot of powerful parts that require a lot cooling similarly to a PC more than ever now.
