New Xbox Series X information incoming as PlayStation 5 GPU gets yet another speculated set of TFLOPS
Microsoft has already been quite generous with revealing information about the Xbox Series X: We know the design of the console and some key specifications. It seems likely that even more details will be offered soon, as the Game Stack Blog has published the itinerary that was originally going to be part of GDC 2020. According to the schedule, “Xbox Series X + Project xCloud = New Chapter in Gaming” will be the topic for discussion at 11:40 a.m. PT on March 18.
While Microsoft has decided to let the world know that the high-end Xbox Series X will have 12 teraflops of GPU performance to call upon, those interested in the PS5 are having a more frustrating wait. There have been numerous rumors and “leaks” claiming to have knowledge of the exact TFLOPS figure for the PS5, but until Sony actually decides to reveal the details, it’s all basically speculation.
Recently, the figures for guesses at the PS5’s GPU performance have been on the rise, with some focusing on the 13 teraflop mark. TechPowerUp has updated its GPU database entry for the AMD PlayStation 5 GPU, noting that it relies on AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture and that it could sport an FP32 (float) performance of 13.06 TFLOPS - but keep in mind this information comes from sources such as Reddit. However, if this ends up being close to accurate then it will satisfy PlayStation fans eager for Sony to stay in line or even surpass the capabilities of the Xbox Series X with the PS5.
