The Road to PS5 revealed a more in depth look at the PlayStation 5 and its inner workings. Lead System Architect, Mark Cerny, gave a lengthy, hour-long talk about comparisons of PS5 to PS4, with much of the talk based around an improved 3D sound system for PS5, called the Tempest Engine, which will allow for custom audio to better suit each individual player.

Cerny also stated the PS5 will have 10 Teraflops of GPU power, slightly less than Xbox Series X, but will have faster loading times (in as little as 0.27 seconds) thanks to the new SSD. Extra storage drives can be added, but Cerny warned of compatibility issues. The PS5 will be also be compatible with “almost all” of the top 100 games on PS4 at release.
