Wooo

Edit: yeah I/O aka input / output.

How the entire system handles data.

The custom SSD solution including its controller and the software stack on top of that which Mark Cerny mentioned in the Wired article.

And probably how it works with RAM. The RAM that we don't know about yet.

Surely breaking a NDA there!?

Or referring to the Spider-Man demo etc?

OP: Can we have the actual link to see the full context please?

You should at least provide context for his remark.

Mike Ybarra is talking about the SSD in PS5, correct?

By all accounts developers are said to be very pleased with its performance.

It makes a lot of sense.
Custom, highly optimised, embedded storage could eclipse generic pc solutions.

Cant wait for the PS5 announcement!

I honestly really missed this aspect of consoles, where they surpass PCs for a small moment before getting obliterated again.

I'm glad these new consoles seem to be trying to push boundaries within the limits of affordability. PS4/Xbox One gen felt a bit safe to me to be honest.

Going back 20/30 years, consoles alway made a jump past PC in terms of performance (not actual power, but a better output on specs), and after a couple a year PC exceeded them again. The fact the console existed, quickly pushed PC to go even higher. I feel like the PS4/One was the first gen that jump was not noticeable, and probably non-existent. So, it is not crazy to suggest we will go back to the same leapfrog over the next 2-3 years. And everyone will be better cause of it.

It's weird to read him saying these things after all his years at MS lol, btw the PS5 reveal will be really exciting.

Im going out on a limb and will say this means the PS5 will be upgradeable with very expensive custom Sony parts. Remember the fun everyone had with those PSVITA memory cards? Get ready for "upgrade your ram if you want this game to run at 60fps" "this game is only playable in *upgraded processor pro*".

Which would still beat having to buy an entire new console like we did last time, but would still SUCK, because the audience keeps getting fragmented.

but how? i don't understand how it could be so much better than high end PC drives. why would a leap that far forward be used for a propriety console drive?
It won't be mind boggling, just developers that will use them in efficient ways to optimize games. I can imagine for the average consumers that hasn't touched a high-end PC it will be pretty significant.
