It will be sold in other territories, including Europe, Middle East, South America, Asia and South Africa, Nov. 19.

The PS5 includes an eight-core AMD Ryzen CPU based on the 7nm AMD Zen 2 architecture at 3.5Ghz variable frequency. The custom Radeon GPU will include 36 compute units at 2.23Ghz for 10.28 TFLOPs capability, 8K graphics support, and ray-tracing.

The hardware includes 16GB GDDR6 RAM. Memory bandwidth totals 448GB per second.

For storage, a new 825GB solid-state drive is included to decrease load times and increase the amount of data pushed to render graphics. An NVMe SSD slot will allow for additional storage.

The PS5 is sold at $499 and the PS5 Digital Edition is sold at $399.
