In the early hours of this morning, Sony officially announced the full specifications of the PS5 console, to briefly compare the core hardware parameters of the Xbox Series X. In addition, the Zen2 Architecture and the new RNDA 2 became standard for this next-generation host, and the biggest winner was undoubtedly AMD.
CPU: XSX is 8-core Zen 2 with a maximum of 3.8GHz, and THE PS5 is also 8-core Zen 2, but 3.5GHz.
GPU: XSX is RDNA 2 architecture GPU, main frequency 1.825GHz, 52 CU, calculation force 12TFLOPs, PS5 is also RDNA 2 architecture, main frequency is higher 2.23GHz, but only 36 CU, calculation force 10.28 TFLOPs.
Memory: XSX is equipped with 16GB DDR6 memory, of which 10GB is high-speed memory bandwidth 560GB/s, 6GB is normal memory bandwidth 336GB/s, PS5 is not so detailed, unified to 16GB DDR6 256bit memory, bandwidth 448GB/s.
Hard drive: XSX features 1TB custom NVMe SSD 2.4GB/s, supports USB HDD expansion, PS5 is equipped with 825GB custom NVMe SSD 5.5GB/s, reading 2GB of data in just 0.27 seconds, and also supports USB HDD expansion.
Otherwise, xSX and PS5 also support ray tracing, as well as 4K blu-ray and 4K UHD Blu-ray drives.
Of course Xbox fans don’t have to be too happy, the parameters will directly reflect on the price, so XSX is likely to be a little more expensive than the PS5.
