On SONY's quarterly financial conference call, Hiroki Totoki, chief financial officer, said the company was in the "most important step in developing the PlayStation platform". He confirmed that the PS5 will launch in the holiday season of 2020. He further added that SONY was "analysing costs, market-acceptable prices and platform penetration".

Based on past leaks, the PS5 will be equipped with AMD's Ryzen processor, which is based on the company's new 7nm Zen 2 architecture. He thinks it will be powerful enough to reach 2GHz. According to Komachi, the increased clock speed will make the PS5 9.2 TF or teraflops. By contrast, the PS4 offers only 4.2tf graphics. That means the PS5 will be twice as fast as the PS4. The PS5 will support raytracing, a technology that enables lighting and sound effects in 3D environments.
