Final specifications for PS5 and Xbox Series X: Another day, another 'leak' about new generation consoles! With each passing day, we are closer to the launch of new hardware that should take the video game market to a completely different level. And therefore, as we get closer to the desired date, more and more information reaches the Internet.
(Leak) Final specifications for PS5 and Xbox Series X: Two Monsters!
Therefore, a new publication appeared on the famous website 4Chan, which supposedly comes to us through the hands of a 'third party' studio that already has the second version of the DevKit on PlayStation 5, as well as the only DevKit version of the Xbox Series X that Microsoft has released. .
That said, the specs are extremely interesting, and even tell a story quite different from what some 2020 ‘leaks’ suggested. After all, the PS5 will feature 12.6 computational performance TFLOPs based on an RDNA 1.5 GPU. (That is, it is not based on the same architecture as the current RX 5000 -> RDNA 1, but it is also not based on the new generation that should give life to hypothetical RX 6000 -> RDNA 2)
However, the Xbox Series X is expected to offer ‘just’ 11.8 TFLOPs of computational performance on the graphics card. However, he will try to win the race with a 3.7 GHz Zen 2 CPU (PS5 has the same 3.6 GHz CPU).
As for memory, PS5 wins again with 18GB of GDDR6, while Xbox Series X comes with 16GB of the same type of memory. (Both have 4GB of DDR4 memory for the operating system.)
PlayStation 5 easily dominates the Xbox with its PCIe 4.0 SSD!
This is where we have the biggest differences! Thus, while the PS5 has a 500GB PCIe 4.0 drive capable of reaching 5.5GB / s, the Xbox Series X has a 1TB drive capable of reaching 3.8GB / s. That said, I don't believe Sony will launch its console with just 500GB, it would be a shot in the foot.
In terms of Ray Tracing, both consoles have dedicated cores for this purpose, however, it seems that PS5 has a larger number of these boys.
