Even though Sony will launch the PlayStation 5 console in about two weeks and we have a ton of information about the machine itself, new info and concerns still arise. According to a post on Benq’s website, the PS5 console will be supporting 1440p screens, and the fans want some assurance that the info is true.
Sony already confirmed that its next-generation console would work on 1080p and 4K displays, but it’s been pretty silent when it comes to the 1440p option.
BenQ declared the following:
“It’ll be another generation before 120 frames-per-second in 4K are normative for the majority of games,”
“We expect the PS5 to deliver firm 4K 60Hz for the next few years. If you’re interested in high framerates, you may want to consider a good QHD gaming monitor, as 1440p will be supported by the PS5 with a higher likelihood of 120Hz in that resolution.”
Sony needs to clarify if 1440p compatibility will be available for the PS5 console, and we’ll find out for sure until the release date scheduled for November 12.
The PlayStation 5 console will be significantly superior to the predecessor PS4, and these specs are proving it:
- CPU: AMD Zen 2-based CPU with 8 cores at 3.5GHz (variable frequency)
- GPU: 10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz (variable frequency)
- GPU architecture: Custom RDNA 2
- Memory interface: 16GB GDDR6 / 256-bit
- Memory bandwidth: 448GB/s
- IO throughput: 5.5GB/s (raw), typical 8-9GB/s (compressed)
- Expandable storage: NVMe SSD slot
- External storage: USB HDD support (PS4 games only)
- Optical drive: 4K UHD Blu-ray drive
