A note from miHoYo's technical director Zhenzhong Yi on the PlayStation Blog:

The PlayStation 5 hardware provides an ideal platform to experience Genshin Impact, making the world of Teyvat even more detailed, more vivid, and more immersive. That's why we wanted to bring the PS5 version to players as soon as we could. At the same time , we've been working to develop various functions to fully utilize this next-gen console in the long run: we created a graphics library completely from the ground up, and we built a customized file-loading system to take advantage of the powerful SSD of the PS5. So in future updates, we will have much more potential to elevate the visual quality and game performance – we are only scratching the surface.

There's also a Developer Talk video for more on the PS5 version:
