But the PlayStation 5, let Sony knows, does not fear competitors.

The architecture of the GPU is a customized RDNA 2, the memory is 16 GB, the broadband of the memory is 448GB/s.
It has an optical reader 4K UHD Blu-Ray Drive. But what really makes the difference is the Throughput I/O, that, compressed, reached the 9 GB/s. Another element that can make the difference is the clock frequence that in PlayStation 5 is variable.
