The XBOX Series X and PlayStation 5 are now on sale worldwide. Demand is high, although for stock management reasons PS5 is sold out and XBOX is mostly available in stores. What is certain is that at this point in the championship there are still many people undecided about what to buy. For those who do it mainly because of the titles available, the answer is simple. It reminds me a few years ago. Uncharted and Killzone fans bought PlayStation, while Halo addicts always went to the Microsoft console. I got to have both for exactly this reason. Now there are still exclusives, but their library of games has grown a lot. For this reason, let’s look at this battle between the XBOX Series X and PlayStation 5 with just specs in mind.
Xbox Series X vs PlayStation 5: only one wins in the specs!
On paper, both the XBOX Series X and PlayStation 5 are impressive for the price they cost. The XBOX Series X has a custom processor developed by AMD that is based on the Zen 2 7nm architecture. It has 8 cores and 16 threads with a base speed of 3.6GHz. In addition, it has the ability to reach peaks of 3.8GHz. Of course, for this you have to disable simultaneous multithreading, as mentioned in the XDA.
The graphics card on this console comes with a fixed speed of 1,825 GHz.
It offers 3328 shaders and 52 computational units that guarantee 12 performance teraflops. In the case of memory we have 16GB of GDDR6 memory. A major upgrade over the 12GB of GDDR5 memory on XBOX One X.
The storage is in charge of a very fast NVMe SSD of 1TB that the console can also use as virtual RAM. Expansion is possible, but a proprietary expansion card is required.
Meanwhile the XBOX Series X offers a 4K video output and a 120Hz gaming experience that can even go up to 8K, however with lower update rates. This means that we have support for HDMI 2.1. This new protocol means an automatic low-latency mode, variable refresh rate and the ability to lower the resolution down to 1440p.
PlayStation 5 is powered by a very similar processor. It is from AMD and also has the Zen 2 architecture. It is octa-core and runs at 3.5GHz. The graphics card has 16GB of DDR6 memory, 36 computational units and a total power of 10.28 teraflots.
Looking at the paper and so far, the XBOX Series X is more powerful than the PlayStation 5 in the case of specifications.
However, the graphics card is faster. In fact, it operates at 2.23GHz. However, other features are similar to the competitor XBOX. So we have a 4K resolution of 120Hz that can go up to 8K. We also have the same support for HDMI 2.1.
One of the strengths Sony has loaded is the SSD. It is a storage system with 825GB that reaches a speed of 5.5GB / s. This results in ultra-fast load times when loading games. Sony says there is a possibility of expansion. Soon we will have an accessory for this purpose and also support from the software.
Both XBOX and PlayStation 5 offer compatibility with previous generation consoles. But here Microsoft’s bet went further.
The new XBOX allows you to play XBOX One titles, as well as 600 XBOX 360 games and others from XBOX Original. In addition, older games will run even better, with double frame rates and HDR support. At least in some titles.
In the case of PlayStation 5, it is known that it will be possible to run 99% of the catalog. However, there are rumors that claim that it will also be possible, in the future, to run PS1, PS2 and PS3 games. All thanks to a virtual emulation. However, as I mentioned, for now it is just a rumor.
On an XBOX Series X vs PlayStation 5 which is the most powerful in the field of specifications?
The price of these consoles is very similar and for this reason this will not be the deciding factor. However, if we look only at the specs, XBOX has a small advantage over PlayStation 5.
That is, whoever buys the console because it only looks at the specifications, will eventually choose XBOX.
For anyone who cares about everything, like most people, it is a more difficult choice.
PlayStation 5 always has great titles and exclusives associated with it. Where XBOX can shine is mainly for those who have always been Microsoft consoles. They have access to many more titles, given all the backward compatibility and it is simpler to use.
Either way, the two consoles have the necessary arguments for many hours of entertainment. Do you like Leak? We count on you! Follow us on Google News. Click here and then Follow.
