While at least the design of the Xbox Series X is already known, the data from both PS5 and Xbox Series X have not yet been officially confirmed. However, according to a new report, Microsoft could be ahead in terms of performance in the new generation of consoles.

The technology experts from Digital foundry have published the findings of their research on PS5 and Xbox Series X so far and may already be leaking the specifications of the two next-gen consoles as far as possible. Accordingly, Sony would have a powerful model at the start with the PS5, but the Xbox Series X is overall the stronger console.
According to this, GDDR6 memory with a throughput of 448 GB / s is supposed to do its job in the PS5, the bandwidth possibly also reaching up to 512 GB / s; the Xbox Series X, on the other hand, has 560 GB / s GDDR6 memory. For comparison: The GDDR5 of the Xbox One X comes to 326 GB / s, the PS4 Pro to 218 GB / s.
The biggest difference is then clear in the graphics performance. Both consoles are said to have a Zen-2 CPU with eight cores, but while the Oberon-named GPU of the PS5 consists of 36 Navi units at 2000 MHz, Microsoft is said to have the Arden Chip 56 Navi computing units in the Xbox Series X with almost 1700 Use MHz. Result: The PS5 should have a GPU with 9.2 Teraflops performance, the Xbox Series X, on the other hand, a whopping 12 Teraflops.
That in turn could also allow conclusions to be drawn about the price, because Microsoft's model may therefore also be somewhat more expensive than the PS5 from Sony. According to the report, the latter should provide three different modes to make them backwards compatible with the PS4 and PS4 Pro. Normally, the PS5 runs in "gen2" mode, the other modes "gen1" and "gen0", on the other hand, should apparently emulate the PS4 and thus ensure backward compatibility.
