Let’s Talk About The Size And Shape As It Is Going To Be A Part Of Your Table Now
The dimensions are – 390mm x 104mm x 260mm (width x height x depth) and PS5 Digital Edition – 390mm x 92mm x 260mm (width x height x depth). This year’s PS5 is in a unique shape of a skyscraper. Yes, you heard it right, a skyscraper. But this skyscraper is a special one as it can be used in both ways, lied down or straight up.
The weight of this PS5 is 4.5kg and PS5 Digital Edition – 3.9kg which is not a heavy one to handle. Talking about the power outputs now, the power is going to be PS5 – 350W and PS5 Digital Edition – 340W making it a really powerful one at that too.

Now That You’ve Seen The PS5 Features, You’re Probably Thinking That What Exactly Do These Means For The Sony Console?
The choice of GPU has been driven by Sony’s belief that a smaller GPU can be a more upright and sprier GPU. The inference being that PS5’s graphics core should be able to deliver a performance higher than anyone may expect from a TFLOPs number that doesn’t accurately circumscribe the capabilities of all parts of the GPU.
The new Custom 825GB SSD will also help in increasing the performance exponentially. With performance rated at two orders of magnitude more and faster than PlayStation 4, Sony’s actual implementation here is something else. The entire PS5’s 16GB can be filled up in just two seconds as in theory it has a speed of loading up 2GB of data in just one-quarter of a second.

On November 19th, Sony officially launched their Playstation 5 for the world, starting with their pre-order feature. However, the PS5 release date or any official announcement from the company is yet to come out.
There have been a number of problems that this new release has gone through, in the country, even before the release. First, there was the PS5 India copyright wrongfully withheld by a Delhi guy, then the company started taking full payments from the retailers and buyers in the country as preorders, where they have been promised a console only upon the launch.
Nevertheless, the excitement for the newest launch is at an all-time high and gamers just can’t contain themselves for the PS5 release date and price in India, especially after the influx of great PS5 features announced by the makers.
