Sony's next-generation console PS5 revealed: 10.3TFLOPS performance

In addition to Microsoft's full disclosure of the specifications and features of the next-generation console Xbox Series X (referred to as XSX), Sony has just announced the full specifications of the PS5 console, a custom 8-core Zen2 processor, but the GPU has to lose to XSX. There are only 36 CU units, and the XSX is 52 CU units.

Eurogamer made a summary to compare the specifications of PS4, PS5 and XSX.


Sony's next-generation console PS5 revealed: 10.3TFLOPS performance

The first is the CPU, PS4 is an 8-core Jaguar core, PS5 is an 8-core Zen2 core with a frequency of 3.5GHz, and Microsoft XSX is also an 8-core Zen2, but with a frequency of 3.8GHz .


In terms of GPUs, PS4 is the core of 18 sets of CU units and the core of GCN architecture, while PS5 is 36 sets of CU units and RDNA2 architecture. The number is much less than XSX of 52 sets of CU units .

However, the core frequency of the GPU of the PS5 is extremely fast, reaching 2.23GHz, and the XSX is only 1.825GHz, so the floating-point performance of the two is 10.28TFLOPS and 12TFLOPS respectively . There is not much difference, and I am afraid that Microsoft will also come with an overclocked GPU in the later stage. .

As for such a high frequency, will it be reduced during operation? Sony also mentioned this, but overall it is still very confident that in the worst case, a 10% reduction in power consumption will only reduce the frequency slightly, without much impact.

Sony said at the press conference that the CPU and GPU frequencies are only the highest values, and they actually change dynamically.

In addition to the two core parts of the CPU and GPU, the PS5's memory is 16GB GDDR6, 256bit wide and 448GB / s. Although Microsoft XSX is also 16GB GDDR6, it is divided into 10GB and 6GB. The former has a bandwidth of 560GB / s. The bandwidth is 336GB / s.

It's hard to say who is better or worse in these two parts. On paper, the PS5 is higher, and the bandwidth is the same.

For the hard disk, the PS5 is also equipped with a PCIe 4.0 hard disk, with a performance of 5.5GB / s and compressed data of 8-9GB / s, which is stronger than the 2.4GB / s XSX host.

However, in terms of capacity, the PS5 is 825GB and the XSX is 1TB.

In terms of expansion, the PS5 also supports USB mobile hard drives and 4K Blu-ray drives. These two points are the same as XSX, but there is no XSX dedicated expansion SSD. Sony's view is different from Microsoft's and does not engage in a dedicated interface.

In other respects, the PS5 will also support 8K and 4K 120Hz games. It will also add new 3D audio effects and will be backward compatible with PS4 games.

In addition to the two core parts of the CPU and GPU, the PS5's memory is 16GB GDDR6, 256bit wide and 448GB / s. Although Microsoft XSX is also 16GB GDDR6, it is divided into 10GB and 6GB. The former has a bandwidth of 560GB / s. The bandwidth is 336GB / s.
