A Twitter user by the name of “Tidux” did a comparison of the two consoles in order to see which console will be the better performer. Let’s start with the CPU, as Tidux said that based off of the data that the leaker has gathered over the past few weeks, the two are essentially comparable.
Next up is the GPU. Tidux claimed that the Xbox Series X GPU will perform better than the PS5’s GPU, but not by much. Tidux wrote that, contrast to previous reports, there is only a one teraflop difference between the two, and not a three teraflop difference that was previously claimed.
While the Xbox Series X GPU is reportedly better than the PS5’s GPU, the same can’t be said about the RAM. According to the leaker, the PS5 has larger memory allocation than the Xbox Series X. In addition, the RAM of the Playstation 5 is faster than the Xbox Series X RAM. Lastly, Tidux also claims that the SSD for the Playstation 5 is twice as fast as the Xbox Series X’s SSD.
Even though the GPU for the Xbox Series X is stronger, Tidux claimed that because of the faster SSD and the stronger RAM, the PS5 will be the better performing console. There’s also one other piece of info that Tidux leaked out, and that involved the devkits. According to the leaker, the final devkits for the Playstation 5 are now out.
NOTE: These are reported leaks, which may or may not be true.
