This Epic / PS5 lovefest is weird, especially with the way they keep blurring comparisons between the hardware and the PlayStation OS that runs the system. The PS5 is essentially a 3700x with a 5700 GPU (non-xt) and a bleeding edge PCIe 4.0 SSD that is specc'd to 825gb for over-provisioning. It is also as close to the Xbox hardware as any two competing console have been at launch. There is no "special sauce". The PS5 is just a solid gaming computer with the typical console optimizations and no overhead from Windows. The (proprietary?) PCIe 4.0 SSD won't even be the fastest available by the PS5 launch date - the Samsung 980 series is rumored to be over 6GB/sec read and that should launch by Fall. Other than vague mentions of superior compression (this is in the software/OS) or what might be proprietary SSD controller, there is nothing notable here that can't be argued for any console like being optimized for games or not dealing with the full overhead of a desktop OS. The PS5 looks cool and it to appears to be a good value for the money, but all this praise should be taken with a grain of salt.
