Sony being the tight-lipped tease that it is has given us another glimpse into what's to come with the official PlayStation 5 specs.

There is a focus on removing loading screen wait times with their ultra-high-speed SSD and integrated I/O system.

Ray tracing, as expected, makes its debut. Ray tracing provides a greater sense of realism by simulating the way light moves in the real world.

Additionally, 3D audio is coming to the PS5. 3D audio makes gaming even more realistic as you can pinpoint where sounds are coming from as you play. Imagine something sneaking up behind you in a game. With 3D audio, you'll be able to hear precisely where they are.
