PlayStation 5 rumors were fired back up Tuesday following a report from Wired with new details regarding the next-generation Sony video gaming console.
In an interview with Mark Cerny, lead system architect for PlayStation 4 and the next PS console, new details regarding hardware were revealed. It was not explicitly named the PlayStation 5, but it's assumed by most that it'll be named accordingly.
Here's what we now know about the upcoming PlayStation console.

PlayStation 5 Details
The exclusive from Wired explained that the new CPU for the system is "based on the third generation of AMD's Ryzen line and contains eight cores of the company's new 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture. The GPU, a custom variant of Radeon's Navi family, will support ray tracing, a technique that models the travel of light to simulate complex interactions in 3D environments."
According to Wired, the next-generation console will also be backwards compatible and the transition will be more accustoming for fans -- meaning more games will be released for both PS4 and the new console.
The most disappointing piece of news for most, though, was that the console won't be coming out in 2019.
