On Twitter Khan said the PS5 is an “awesome” piece of hardware.

Khan posted: “PS5 details will finally be made public tomorrow. My TLDR version – It’s awesome.”

Following on from this Kotaku journalist Jason Schreier quoted Khan’s tweet and said the comments chimed in with what he had heard.

Schreier, an ever-reliable source of video game information, tweeted: “I don’t know how many teraflops (lol) the PS5 has, but this is the sentiment I’ve heard from several technical-minded folks.

“One told me it was “the most exciting hardware in 20 years.” Will be fascinating to see how it stacks up to the impressive Xbox Series X specs.”

Schreier then added: “To elaborate a bit, that quote was referring to the whole console, but the speaker emphasized the CPU (which has long been a bottleneck for gaming consoles) and the SSD (which is said to allow for some wild possibilities vis-a-vis loading times, open worlds, etc)”.
