According to reports, PlayStation 5 will be 30 percent less powerful than Xbox Series X
PlayStation 5 test data suggests it will max out at 9.2 teraflops, while the Xbox Series X breaches the 12 teraflops mark.
Microsoft ignited the war of next-generation consoles with the debut of Xbox Series X earlier this month, facing the next PlayStation 5. Sony so far has made great claims about how the next Xbox console will be the most powerful player in the domain. Now, a new leak suggests that this could be the case, at least when it comes to unprocessed teraflop figures. It is said that the Xbox Series X console offers an impressive 12 teraflops, while Sony’s PlayStation 5 will reach a maximum of 9.2 teraflops, about 30 percent less than its Microsoft rival.
A Eurogamer report, citing test data obtained from GitHub and tipsters, offers a brief summary of the internal aspects of PlayStation 5. It is said that Sony’s next console will use eight AMD Zen 2 cores for processing needs, while the Graphics will be handled by 36 custom Navi computing units with the clock at 2000Mhz. GDDR6 memory, on the other hand, is said to dial 448GB / s or a maximum speed of 512GB / s. A rough estimate of the raw GPU output delivered by the 36 custom Navi compute units with these filtered specifications provides 9.2 teraflops of GPU power.
On the other hand, the Xbox Series X is said to include 56 Navi GPU units customized at 1700MHz, while the bandwidth of the GDDR6 memory is comparatively greater than 560GB / s. Mounting on eight Zen 2 cores, the filtered figures offer a much higher GPU output of 12 teraflops, reaching 12.2 teraflops. This leak seems to have some material support as well. Microsoft Xbox chief Phil Spencer recently said in an interview that the Xbox X Series will double the performance of the Xbox One X GPU.
And since the Xbox One X reaches 6 teraflops, the obvious GPU power objective for the Xbox Series X turns out to be 12 teraflops. While the Microsoft Xbox Series X console seems to have an advantage over the PlayStation 5, keep in mind that these conclusions have been drawn based on leaked test data, and not from official test figures. It should also be noted that the output of unprocessed GPU is not the only factor that can boost sales, especially in the case of Microsoft, which has lagged behind Sony in regards to exclusive and preferences among developers.
