Sony PlayStation 5 8K Graphics Revealed

The PS5 Is Not Just An Upgraded PS4…

According to Mark Cerny, who served as the lead system architect for the PS4, the new console isn’t just a spec-boosted upgrade of the PS4, like the PS4 Pro was. There’s entirely new hardware inside the PlayStation 5, including an eight-core CPU based on AMD’s third-gen Ryzen line built on the chip company’s latest 7nm Zen 2 process and a custom GPU based on AMD’s Radeon Navi hardware, which will bring ray-tracing graphics to a game console for the first time. The end result of all those hardware improvements: the PS5 will support 8K graphics, assuming you’ve got a TV that supports that kind of resolution.

8K? Will You Have To Fork Out On A New Tele?

The Playstation 5 will support 8K graphics/resolution which is astonishing however you will only benefit from this technology if you have a 8K Ready TV and without going into detail, I think we are safe to say this will cost an arm and a leg. Of course the Console will still support Standard, HD and 4K Resolutions as well so not to worry if you have only just forked out an arm for your brand new 4K Television.


The Ps5 Will bring some impressive features and one of the main hyped about is the 8K Graphics. The PS5 Will still support all previous Definitions/Resolutions/Graphics for all of the people not wanting a new TV so other than 8K Graphics, the Ps5 will have to be dramatically different from the PS4 for someone to even want to upgrade as let’s face it, 4K is more than enough in my opinion.

Is 4K enough for you?
