In a corporate strategy meeting, Sony President and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida announced that the PS5 is set to have processing speeds that are 100 times faster than the PS4.

Here’s what Yoshida had to say about the new console’s performance:

“…through a custom‐designed high‐speed SSD, we plan to realize game data processing speeds that are approximately 100 times faster than PS4.” And further, “Game load times should be much shorter, and players should be able to move through immense game worlds in almost an instant.”

He touched on the Dual Sense controller, which will feature haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, which is designed to further enhance the realism of the gaming experience.

3D audio is also part of the PS5 experience, which means that, “Players can experience sound that moves from in front to behind, above to below and all around them.”

With the Xbox Series X boasting some pretty heavy specs of its own, gamers are sure to be the winners in this next-gen battle. The price of either console, however, is yet to be revealed.
