According to Techradar, the following are the features found on the PS5 Slim. What do you think is interesting?


If you look at the visuals of the PS5 Slim circulating on the internet, many people actually predict that the size of this console will be smaller and very thin compared to the previous generation console.

When compared to the PS5, it turns out to be bigger and requires a lot of space to be able to store it vertically, so of course this is quite inconvenient for some people.

So, the PS5 Slim has reduced the weight by 300 grams from the current PS5 model. Apart from that, it is hoped that this console will still have a bigger and stronger console body.

This console apparently weighs 8.6 pounds, which means it is lighter than the PS3. So, perhaps it is not yet certain whether this console is really small, light and thin or whether it still has a design similar to the previous generation?


The hardware specifications on the PS5 Slim may still be similar to the original system, but the hardware will be thinner according to the model and size.

Of course, this is caused by the Die Shrink process, namely a board that is small and contains identical circuits with similar semiconductors.

Apart from that, there is an upgrade to the speed of the internal drive and reportedly it will feature a Removable Disc Drive feature.

Other Features

  • Uses advanced technology to provide the same specifications as the previous console, but in a smaller and thinner form.
  • It turns out that the PS5 Slim's competitor is the Microsoft Xbox Series S, which both has a resolution of 1440p, so the PS5 Slim has a native 4k output with a downscale to 1440.
  • Will prioritize compatibility similar to the Xbox Series S | X.

According to Techradar, The following are the features found on the PS5 Pro. What are the features?


The design of the PS5 Pro will of course be bigger than the PS5 and Slim or PS4 and PS4 Pro. On the PS5, it looks very large and has curves on the sides and a very tall structure.

If you look at the PS5 Pro itself, its body will be thicker and this is balanced by the hardware contained in the console.


As we know, playing on PS5 can play 4K games from several available games with very real and luxurious visuals. The resolution provides 1080p to 4K resolution. However, the PS5 Pro actually wants to use 8K resolution.

The PS5 Pro uses an AMD Zen 4 CPU and RDNA-3 GPU, but Sony decided to use the Xbox One CPU version. So, maybe the PS5 Pro will use the GPU more than the CPU.

The PS5 Pro also uses SSD Gen 5. Apart from that, it also uses SSD NVME Gen 4 and uses a type of memory that is faster and not slow.
