The Playstation 5 specification relating to its SSD storage solution has The Last of Us 2 co-game director excited. According to him, it’s a big generational leap in terms of game development.
Kurt Margenau, the co-game director of The Last of Us 2 and the Uncharted: The Lost Legacy game director has just spoken about the PS5 specs. He has been gushing about the PS5 spec regarding its SSD storage option. According to Margenau, people aren’t aware of exactly how big of an improvement this is:
“Still tripping about this #PS5 SSD spec. Like, people don’t even know how big of a leap in terms of game design can be made, especially for 1st party that doesn’t have to design to lowest common denominator. By far the biggest leap in my career. Can’t wait.”
Sony Interactive Entertainment officially revealed the PS5 specs in its recent reveal event. The next-gen Sony console will have 10.28 TeraFlops of GPU power along with 8x Zen 2 cores running at 3.5ghz. The spec that is relevant here is the PS5 SSD specification.
