The best upgrade over the PS4 is the new SSD in the PS5 gaming console. The PS5 targets a load rate of 5.5 GB/s  which in theory is almost 10 times faster than the previous PS4.

The CU (control unit) of the PS5 is 62% bigger than the PS4 for faster & efficient processing. Further, the GPU uses both ray tracing & primitive shaders to improve the power consumption & heat management of the PS5 gaming system. This also means no excessive fan noise & the least chances of overheating of the console.

Another, exciting specification of the all-new PS5 is the 3D audio technology. The emphasis on the 3D audio with the PlayStation claims to deliver 3D audio irrespective of the setup used: TV speakers, headset or soundbar. It uses HRTF (Head Related Transfer Function) to map out an individual’s hearing based on the sound’s frequency, direction & volume. 

The new 3D audio technology with the PS5 uses dynamic AI audio that adjusts the music like changing the tempo to changing the music entirely based on the emotional state of the gamer.
