Gran Turismo 7 Specs

Whilst the PS5 will be able to produce a 4K 120Hz resolution for certain games, Gran Turismo 7 is aiming for a 4K 60Hz Ray Tracing offering instead.

This addition of Ray Tracing allows for incredibly dynamic and realistic lighting that should revolutionise the console gaming experience.
