PlayStation V: A Sneak Peek Into the Actual Console Design

PlayStation V: A Sneak Peek Into the Actual Console Design

Although Sony Interactive Entertainment has not officially released full details with regards to the PlayStation ‘V’ console dev kit. But, a number of prototypes have been leaked on the Internet, most of which are similar to the “Parallelogram-shaped” PlayStation 4 Pro series. Due to the artful conceptions inferred by various tech enthusiasts on the PlayStation ‘V’ actual console design. We at TechCavit have taken it upon ourselves to publish what is perceived to be the actual design of the latest version of the PlayStation lineup, after thorough research.

Apparently, all of these buzzes about what the dev kit would really look like are follow-ups of the events that occurred after Sony Interactive Entertainment filed a patent with a Brazilian patent agency in May. The patent with registration number: 302019002287, which was later published on 13th August portrayed a mind-blowing hardware ‘blueprint’. A portrait, which at the time of filing was not clarified as to whether it is a ‘Gaming Console’ or some sort of ‘Electronic Hardware device’.

Given that the purported “V-shaped” PlayStation “V” patent drawing, was first propagated sometime in the latter part of August by a German tech website (Letsgodigital) to be a gaming console. And being that the patent filed by the Japanese Multinational Conglomerate with a Brazil patent agency raised a lot of eyebrows in the gaming sphere. TechCavit has taken a bolder step to grace our audience with deeper insights as we detail not just design schematics but with rather more elaborate functionalities.

Hardware and Software Specifications

Aside from the game-changing idea of having an entirely different game-console structure, Sony also plans to embed new features into the PlayStation ‘V’ in terms of hardware as well as software specifications. According to Mark Cerny – an employee of Sony Corporation and one of the lead Architects behind the PlayStation 4 model. PlayStation ‘V’ would be built upon a 7nm Zen 2 micro-architecture that utilizes 8 Core AMD CPU (which is based upon AMD’s 3rd generation ‘Ryzen’ processors).

The Graphics card, on the other hand, would be powered by a variant of AMD Radeon’s VII Navi family GPU that actively supports ‘Ray Tracing’ along with 3D audio compatibility. The chipset on the display is incorporated with the brilliance of 8k brightness in comparison to the present 4K technology in the market today. By means of AI and machine learning, this 8K technology is capable of upscaling to unimaginable depths and resolutions via the HDR10+ feature.

Looking at the image Sony patented last month, with the vents located on the top, side and behind the assumed PlayStation “V” console. It becomes obvious that this machine for whatever use it would serve would incorporate a hyper-processor, hence the advanced ‘Cooling System’.

Another striking component is the optical drive unit on the frontal left portion that supports a double layer ultra-Hd Blu-ray disk drive. With an inclusion of a flash-based SSD hard drive that can be expandable to a 100Gib memory capacity (that cuts the gaming load time to an average of 0.8 seconds). Alongside five LED indicators each of which serves as an indicator possibly for the number of controllers connected or the ‘Eject’, ‘Rewind’, ‘Pause’, ‘Fast-Forward’ and ‘Play’ buttons.

Also, there exist a number of buttons on the frontal right of the dev kit which includes; the power button and five USB ports, as well as a strange connector, believed to be for the PSVR (PlayStation Virtual Reality) Headset. Additionally, a circular module which according to Gizmodo is a 4G camera compartment that allows for live streaming. Considering that the architecture of the PlayStation V also allows for PlayStation 4 games to be loaded onto it as they are both similar. It becomes noteworthy to state that the latest version has increased backward compatibility with its immediate predecessor – PlayStation 4.

Much has not been gathered with regards to the pricing but what we know for sure is that this piece would be priced well above $399 as with the previous model. Subsequently, as stated by Cerny in the interview, his view on the pricing would be pretty fair enough. In his words, he stated that;

“I believe that we will be able to release it at an SRP (suggested retail price) that will be appealing to gamers in light of its advanced feature set.”

And to be honest, for a machine as powerful as this, an SRP of $500 is not in anyway exorbitant at all. So it’s best to start saving up for the PlayStation ‘V’ device since it’s expected to debut in 2020.
