Both Sony and Microsoft are aiming to deliver beyond 10.7 teraflops of Google’s Stadia in PS5 and Xbox Scarlett, according to Jason Schreier. Jason, who’s a famous journalist at Kotaku revealed this information on ResetERA while debunking the recent rumors of the next generation PS5 controller.
Currently, there’s no confirmation about the hardware specs so do take it all with a grain of salt. We can expect the next generation of consoles (PlayStation 5 and Next Xbox) to at least offer 11 teraflops or up to 14 teraflops. This hypes us more than ever about the next-gen consoles as such upgrades are always welcomed by the gamers and developers both. The current Xbox One X offers 6 teraflops and PS4 Pro comes second with 4.2 teraflops.
Here’s what he said:
The only thing to know for sure is that both Sony and Microsoft are aiming higher than that “10.7 teraflops” number that Google threw out last week. (And, as has been reported, Microsoft’s got a few things in the works.
Albeit, Google has an advantage here as they can upgrade their systems anytime they want as it’s all being streamed to you via PC, mobile and TV. In the case of Sony and Microsoft, they have to make consumers buy their upgraded hardware to deliver better performance overall so putting more than 11 teraflops in the standard version of next-gen consoles seems like the best idea for both companies.
Apart from that, Jason has called the image of next-generation PS5 controller on the internet a well made fake. The controller’s picture was trending on social media and many believed it to be real as it showed us an LED screen in the middle instead of the touchpad.
Jason at the end added that both gaming companies are planning to release their next-generation consoles sometime in 2020.
The hype train continues towards the future of consoles and every day we get to hear something new about them. Yesterday we reported that the upcoming console from Sony will bring us something called PlayStation Plus (PS Plus) Premium. This information comes from an EU based game developer.
According to him, PS Plus premium will offer players guaranteed access to video game betas and alpha access along with an ability for the players to create their own servers. This new version of the service will run parallel to the standard PS Plus.
There’s a lot to find out about the next-generation of consoles but they are guaranteed to have much superior hardware compared to what’s present inside the current generation of consoles.
