I have purchased every playstation except playstation 4 and it is paying off with PS5 having PS4 backwards compatibility for what I assume will finally be true 4K PS4 gaming.  PS5 is a must buy on my list.

    I think the ray tracing will be the biggest news for it since any PS5 port to the PC will be easier to just add ray tracing then any other lighting. We will have to see what Microsoft does but I don't think they would add Ray Tracing to DirectX and then not have the next generation of Xbox lack support for it.

    I am also interested to see what media format it uses. Hopefully it has a 4K Blu-Ray drive but it would be nice if they supported 8k media.

    It is not custom sir, but the future of console and PC Gaming.  This chip is the beginning of tech innovation in the coming years for AMD and Intel.

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    But wasn’t AMD used in the Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch? It’s good for AMD but console games are always sub par to what people expect from a PC version.

    Oh you thinking small grasshopper. If AMD can do a chip combine with Navi for consoles, can you imagine applying that to PC but in a bigger/advance scale
