Can’t wait to get a look at PS5 graphics? You’re not alone. A lot of gamers have been asking a lot of questions about the specs and capabilities of the PlayStation 5. So far, Sony has not offered a lot of answers. But now, we may have just gotten a look at what we can expect as far as graphical capabilities — and it is pretty impressive.
According to a report, during the Inter BEE (International Broadcast Equipment Exhibition) 2018 event in Tokyo, visitors got to see something rather tantalizing. The event is basically like CES (Consumer Electronics Show) but focuses more on professional equipment used in the video production industry.
On the event, the ultra-high-end CLEDIS (Crystal LED Display System) was featured. It’s a massive 440-inch screen with a near-180 degree viewing angle capable of 8K video output at 120FPS.
There, a 12-second stunning Grand Turismo 8K/120FPS footage was featured on the massive screen. This is the clip that was shown.
The report notes that watching this YouTube video compared to watching it on the CLEDIS offers two different experiences. Only watching it at the CLEDIS will you get to see the stunning visuals.
But What Does This Video Got To Do With The PS5?
Well, Gran Turismo creator and Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi made an interesting comment last year. During an interview, the CEO said that the assets that are being created for GT Sport are over-specced even for the PS4 Pro and thinks that it won’t be a problem to run it at 8K.
“It takes six months to create a single car. It’s over-specced for PS4 Pro. So we are building for future versions of the console rather than the one we see today. I think it would be no problem to run it at 8K even.”
