Sony’s Mark Cerny detailed the specs of the PS5 in an interview with Wired, and it seems that the PS5’s CPU and GPU will be based on AMD’s third-generation, eight-core Ryzen processor and AMD’s Radeon Navi line, respectively. The biggest reveal was that the PS5 will be able to bring ray tracing to consoles, which is the same technology found in Nvidia’s RTX GPUs.
