There are a lot of rumors and assumptions surrounding the much-awaited PlayStation 5. In fact, in a statement made by the video game designer and lead architect of Sony Mark Cerny, he revealed an invaluable inclusion on the features of the next generation of PlayStation.

Mark Cerny hinted that there's a big possibility that PlayStation 5 is set to have 8 Teraflop GPU. "Natively render at 4K, is a personal estimate, but at the very least 8 TFLOPS become necessary will," he said, per AV Tech via WCCF Tech.

Although the inclusion of 8 Teraflop GPU in PlayStation 5 is not yet confirmed, Sony might try to exceed the features of Microsoft's Project Scorpio as it announced that it would have 6 Teraflop GPU. It has been said that the latter video card is enough to reveal perfect 4K games, but Mark Cerny insisted that 8 Teraflops of GPU power is much needed to smoothly run with 4K resolution.

Meanwhile, GamenGuide recently reported that rumored specs PlayStation 5 might have. It has been said that it would carry, as expected VR compatibility and 4K resolution. It was, too, first speculated that it would carry AMD Radeon chipset along with 1700p HD video support.

As Sony will try its best to make PlayStation 5 stand out from the rest, it might go head-to-head with Microsoft's Project Scorpio. There are also swirling rumors that it may have two models; one with the use of discs and one without the need of CD.

Furthermore, there are also assumptions that PlayStation 5 will be seen in 2018 as hinted by the Wall Street Journal reporter Takashi Mochizuki on his Twitter page. "PS4 Pro? Wait, what about PS5? Macquarie's Damian Thong who correctly predicted PS4 slim and Pro says PS5 may arrive in the 2nd half of 2018," he tweeted.

The writer mentioned the name of the known analyst who correctly predicted the coming of PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation Slim. With that, Sony still has to announce if PlayStation 5 will indeed come in 2018.
