PlayStation 5 devkit is running nearly a 13 teraflop GPU with Zen 2 CPU, according to a Tweet by industry insider Benji Sales. In addition to that, Sales says that there’s a ton of “ultra fast ram” inside PS5 and it’s completely a beast. These are some impressive specifications if they turn out to be true but for the time being, should be treated as a rumor since there’s no official confirmation on these specs yet by Sony.
Benji has now deleted the Tweet saying that it’s not worth looking at but luckily someone took a screenshot of it. Maybe he revealed something too early? It could be a possibility.
If the Tweet is to be believed, PS5 is indeed very powerful and the leaked information might be true since Sony has confirmed that PS5 devkits have been sent out to select developers.
To make things easier for you to understand, below are the current generation gaming consoles with their respective teraflops.
- Xbox One: 1.31 teraflops
- Xbox One S: 1.4 teraflops
- Xbox One X: 6 teraflops
- PlayStation 4: 1.84 teraflops
- PlayStation 4 Pro: 4.2 teraflops
In addition to this, PS5 is likely to top the power of Google’s Stadia as well which is said to offer 10.7 Teraflops. Sales also mentioned in the Tweet that first party titles from developers like Naughty Dog, Guerrilla Games, Sony Santa Monica, and Insomniac Games are going to look insane on PlayStation 5 due to the powerful hardware inside.
Last month, the chief architect for PlayStation hardware Mark Cerny confirmed PlayStation 5 specs in an interview by revealing that it will feature a 7nm Zen 2 CPU along with a 7nm Navi-based Radeon GPU to support ray tracing.
Cerny has also confirmed that PS5 will come with an ultra-fast SSD for shorter loading times in video games. PS5 will also support 8K, which is expected to be a common feature in Televisions after 2020.
The latest leak has just added more fuel to the fire surrounding Sony’s next-gen console. Unfortunately, we will have to wait for a while to get our hands on the console because Sony has confirmed that PS5 is not going to release in 2019. The earliest we can expect for PS5 to release is in the last quarter of 2020.
We can expect Sony to unveil PS5 fully at PlayStation Experience 2019.
