It has an all-new approach towards the processing as described by Mark Cenry. The PS5 can adjust its frequencies according to the workload. An internal monitor keeps the CPU and GPU in check that they perform in a similar load and manages the power level to meet the perfect combination. The power from CPU is transferred to GPU for a boost in graphical performance.
PS5 – GPU – graphics processing unit
