The world of

video game

I was looking forward to the online presentation that Sony had prepared. Finally Mark Cerny, the mind behind the PS4 and designer of the next console, was going to show the world what the

Playstation 5

(as well as

Microsoft showed the appearance of the Xbox Series X

 this week), but we were left wanting to see it for the first time … Although it wasn't all bad news.

In a

deeply technical talk

Cerny detailed point by point

the technological improvements that the PS5 will bring

. Although I did not confirm the departure date and did not show how to see it, it did specify how to be inside.

SSD storage

The new PlayStation will have an SSD drive created specifically for Sony, which will completely change the way of playing until now, eliminating loading times, "reloads", waiting between sections of the game and even between "death" and "death" in games.

During the video Cerny explained how this new storage will work compared to the PS4. Today a PlayStation 4 has a reading rate of 100MB per second, and if we want to load 1GB of game textures it takes approximately 20 seconds. Now with the new technology, the PS5 will be able to reduce this to 0.27 seconds, with a rate that reaches 5.5 GB per second. This will drastically change not only the way you play, but the way that developers will be able to think about game levels, options and the expansion of creativity with new limits with this new storage, which will be 825 GB.

The console will also have a way to expand storage with an M2 port, but they will be for specific SSDs that meet certain system requirements.
