While its main competitor Microsoft has been all too happy to discuss Xbox Series X out in the open, Sony has remained surprisingly quiet when it comes to PS5. We know that it’ll be arriving some time in holiday 2020, but so far, any information we’ve learned has come in dribs and drabs. Well, a recent Sony corporate strategy meeting has further highlighted what players can expect from the next console.

Led by Sony president and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida, during the meeting he gave a lengthy presentation detailing what PS5 will be capable of. We knew much of this already: the DualSense controller will include haptic feedback, 3D audio is a game changer… but in one slide entitled, “Evolution of ‘Speed’ in the Next Gen Console,” Yoshida claimed that PS5 will approximately feature “100 times faster processing speed” than the PS4.

This bold declaration wasn’t expanded on too much during the rest of the meeting, and it is worth noting that Yoshida isn’t a developer or systems architect, so it’s probably best to take it with a pinch of salt. Still, if true, such an increase in raw processing power could see the PS5 run and load games immensely faster than anything seen in the current console generation – even Xbox Series X.

This is something we’ll very much have to asses when the PS5 actually releases. If only Sony would open up about details more.
