SS5 has a SSD particularly fast, to the point of pushing Epic Games to change theUnreal Engine 5 to be able to exploit it properly: revealed Nick Penwarden, vice-president of engineering at Epic Games, during an interview.
“PlayStation 5 offers a substantial leap forward in terms of power computational and graphics performance, but the architecture used for console storage is also very special, “explained Penwarden, again praising the PS5 SSD, a hundred times faster than PS4 in processing data.
“The ability to stream content at extreme speeds will allow developers to create settings richer and more detailed, changing the way we conceive this aspect of development. ”
“This is such an important element that we had to rewrite the main I / O subsystems of Unreal Engine 5 with the PS5 technical specifications in mind.”
According to several insiders, the demo of Unreal Engine 5 on PS5 highlighted precisely these characteristics of speed in streaming content during the final part, when the character takes flight. You can see it here at the bottom.
