So fast that you’ll miss it in a blink
Now loading… The solid-state drives SSDs will enable fast-travel possible like you just think and land on a different place altogether, in a jiffy. The game developer did think about the nuances people have to worry about loading the game and how much time consuming can it be.
Previously, the hard drive would load data at roughly 50-100 MB/s, a gigabyte taking approximately 20 seconds in the earlier version of PS4. However, with the new storage component, mainly SSD in the PS5 shall provide extraordinary transfer rate of 5GBPS, with an instantaneous seek time.
It transfers 2GB data in less than 0.27 seconds, as compared to 1GB in 20 seconds on the previous device if you ask to avoid apprehensions on the speed.
In-built expandable memory
For those of you, who don’t wish to splurge money on the extravaganzas of accessories but more games. More is the cue word here. Although the new PS5 shall have a sizable 825 GB SSD.
However, that may concern many players as games multiply in size due to player profiles, with many games reaching 100 GB on the cache memories.
Fortunately for players who like to save all of their games on the console, the PS5 will support certain M2 external SSDs. Just like an ATX cabinet, your console will also come with additional storage space to add SDDs to the console.
The 3D audio feature to lift you up
No matter how visually-appealing the game is, it is another feat to conform to the storyline with the audio effects. A game is dead without the audio, stands true, as mentioned by Mark Cerny in the premier video. Furthermore audio is extremely important to make the game alive and only with its surround sound, you are able to fathom the realm it holds.
PS5 focuses to create a sense of presence with the environment surround sound to increase intense immersion from the ground up, enhancing the gaming experience. Sounds will be 3D rendered to equivocate even the raindrops to make you feel like you are in the middle of the wild storm.
