In light of the approaching launch date of the new version of Sony devices known as Playstation 5 in the holiday season this year 2020.
People who own the previous version Playstation 4 or Playstation 4 Pro will face a difficult decision.
Which is, should they acquire the new platform or keep their current one?
Of course, new players looking for a new gaming console should choose between the Play Station 4 and the upcoming PlayStation 5.
Therefore, we will show the most important differences between the Play station 4 and Playstation 5 so that you can determine which of them is sufficient for you.
Comparison between PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Play Station 4 Pro
When we compare the Play station 4 and Play station 4 Pro, we find that the Playstation 4 Pro is distinguished by the graphics processing unit.
In addition to its own central processing unit.
It gives developers the opportunity to present worlds that are more complex, detailed, and more realistic.
In addition to support for displaying videos up to 4K.
Both devices came with an HDD with a storage capacity of 1 TB.
Knowing that the most important thing that distinguishes the PlayStation 4 Pro from the PlayStation 4.
Is that both GPU and CPU are developed and their efficiency increases.
As for the upcoming PlayStation 5, almost all specifications have been developed and improved.
The PlayStation 5 depends on the third generation of processing systems.
It is an AMD Ryzen with Zen 2 architecture and the size of 7 nm which contains 8 cores with 16 thread.
To be more than double the Play Station 4 Pro, which works at 4.2 teraflops with 36 911MHz processing units.
Sony said that its next platform will support light-tracking technology via hardware such as NVIDIA RTX cards.
According to Laura Miele, she said that this technology will provide us with stronger blast effects and shadows that follow the rays in a more realistic way
The new Sony device supports 8K resolution, but we do not expect the device to give us an 8K gaming experience.
So there are two possibilities to clarify this statement, either the company means that the device supports 8k video playback through HDMI 2.1.
Or it will use technologies identical to the technologies used in the PlayStation 4 Pro for uploading games.
The games were lifted with 4K Checkboard technology.
The HDD has been replaced by a SSD with storage capacity of 825GB.
Although the storage capacity of the device is less than the other two devices.
However, games download speed is higher.
This is why game developers do not need to provide the ability to download the game in one go.
So that you can download the games while you are experimenting and playing progress and you will not notice it.
Sony has demonstrated this feature by displaying a video showing the difference in the download time of the Spider-Man game on the PlayStation 5 and Play Station 4 Pro.
The company added that this feature will make movements in games significantly faster.
And that the developers nowadays can make the movement of the camera more smooth because the details of the world will be loaded in a jiffy.
Sony has added a new feature to its upcoming PlayStation 5 platform, which is 3D sounds.
As I mentioned that the sound technology is similar to that of light, with no details given about this matter.
But this feature is expected to make the sounds in games more realistic.
New joystick technologies
When moving to the design of the new PlayStation 5 controller, it looks a lot like the Play Station 4 controller.
However, when looking at the technologies, there are some new features that have been added.
The goal of these improvements, according to Sony, is to deepen the feeling of immersion during the gaming experience.
The Rumble feature on the Play Station 4 controller has been replaced by Haptic Feedback.
This feature will give the player the ability to feel all forms and levels of reaction.
For example, in a racing game, a player's sensation when hitting his car will be completely different from how he does in soccer when hitting the ball with his head.
In addition to enhancements to the L2 / R2 buttons, which have been integrated with Adaptive trigger technology.
In doing so, to be more sensitive to the force of pressure on it, and thus give many different commands.
On the other hand, the new controller will be heavier than the PlayStation 4 hand.
Supports charging through a USB Type-C cable with a larger battery
