Xbox Series X And PS5 GPU Specs Have Reportedly Leaked

- Jan 02, 2020-

If the leak report is accurate, we have just learned some details that will power the Xbox Series X and PS5. Unsurprisingly, that number has surpassed the Xbox One and PS4 in terms of processing power.

Digital Foundry (via Eurogamer) detailed the vulnerability in a report that came directly from AMD's test lab. It is said that the Xbox Series X will be equipped with a "frankly huge" GPU that may reach 12 teraflops-compared to the roughly 1.3 teraflops of the Xbox One and the 6 teraflops of the Xbox One X.

The report on PS5 is more specific. The leak report says that the successor to the PS4 will have a 9.2 teraflop graphics card, a lot less than the expected 12 teraflops packaged in the GPU of the Xbox Series X, but still impressive.

The leak allegedly claimed that the PS5 will run GDDR6 memory, which is the successor to the long-term use of GDDR5 memory in most current generation graphics cards. Some graphics cards that use GDDR6 memory include GTX 1660ti, RTX 2060-2080 and AMD's Radeon Radeon RX 5700.

The leak also details three different "modes" that the PS5 will use to support backward compatibility with PS4 and PS4 Pro. It is reported that the system will alternate between the 0th, 1st and 2nd generations to play PS4, PS4 Pro enhanced and PS5 games respectively.

Of course, don't forget the expression of "salt grains" because this is too important here. All of this was based on unconfirmed leaks, and it could change completely in the time before the respective Holiday 2020 launch of each console. Although the numbers and sources are not particularly suspicious, it is likely that the information is accurate.
