On Monday of this week, Microsoft confirmed all of the glorious specs that the Xbox Series X will have to offer, which looks pretty darn swanky, and now it’s Sony’s turn.

Sony shared their reveal plans over on Twitter stating that PlayStation fans can tune in directly to the PlayStation Blog tomorrow for more info: 

According to the PlayStation camp, “PS5 lead system architect Mark Cerny will provide a deep dive into PS5’s system architecture, and how it will shape the future of the games.” The reveal is set to go live at 9 AM PT / 12 ET for those interested, which will make it easier to stack up Xbox and PlayStation for those that only plan to buy one platform at launch. 

Cerny has been key when learning more about the future generation of PlayStation, including previously clarifying details about the system’s ray-tracing capabilities, saying “There is ray-tracing acceleration in the GPU hardware,” he said in a previous interview, “which I believe is the statement that people were looking for.” Cerny also mentioned that the PS5’s SSD isn’t just formidable on its own, it’s also a huge leap forward in efficiency, which means various data blocks will read much faster in games. 

“If you look at a game like Marvel’s Spider-Man,” Cerny says, “there are some pieces of data duplicated 400 times on the hard drive.” This also means that game installation will also see a slight change as well, mentioning that the PS5 will be improved by the simplified game data, which also caused Sony to rethink how they handle storage. “Rather than treating games like a big block of data,” Cerny says, “we’re allowing finer-grained access to the data.”

We’ll be tuning in tomorrow so keep it locked in here at Prima Games for more PlayStation 5 news and a PS5 spec breakdown!
