More powerful CPU and GPU

  • Improved graphics and visual effects.
  • 8K supported graphics (if you have a TV which supports 8K).
  • System memory increase in size and speed.
  • Ability to download larger files.

Ray Tracing

  • Models the travel of light to simulate complex interactions in 3D environments.
  • Leads to heightened realism, as it allows accurate mimicking of how light bounces off different objects.

Ray Tracing is a real time advanced computer graphic system that can generate a life like way of rendering light and shadows. It is used in films and TV shows, however, has only recently seen its introduction into video games on the PC. 

With Ray Tracing having been announced as a feature on the PS5, game developers will be able to increase the levels of graphics and realism in their games which is a dream come true to most for console gamers.
