Sony Interactive Entertainment could have revealed the specifications for PlayStation 5, but we still don't know how powerful it will be. We can only speculate until Sony confirms something, but it seems to be 4 times more powerful than a PS4 Pro.
Recently, ComputerBase conducted a test to see how much power PlayStation 5 will include. To be honest, the test is not representative of the final product since the test was conducted between Radeon RX 5700 and RX 590.
Since RX 5700 is based on the Navi architecture, which is also used for PlayStation 5, it will give us an idea of what much performance can be expected from the next-generation console.
So, it's just speculation at best. According to this speculation, if PS5 presents 10 TFLOP of Navi GPU, then it should be equivalent to 4.7 TFLOP GPU Polaris.
That is, PlayStation 5 should provide performance equivalent to a 14.7 TFLOPs PS4 PRO. For those who don't know, PS4 Pro features 4.2 TFLOP of GPU computing, which is not enough to render games in native 4K.
Combine this with a variant of the AMD Zen 2 CPU, PlayStation 5 should provide a generational leap never seen before. However, this is just speculation and take it with a grain of salt.
This indicates that PS5 should be able to comfortably run games in native 4K with Ray Tracing enabled. It will be interesting to see how Xbox Scarlett is doing compared to PS5 since both next-generation consoles support Ray Tracing.
Speaking of CPUs with AMD Zen 2 architecture casing, AMD continued the trend of beating Intel CPUs with its Ryzen CPUs. Ryzen 3000 desktop CPUs have almost taken over the CPU market and Intel cannot do anything about it.
But that does not mean that Intel has nothing up its sleeve. Recently, Intel's 14nm +++ Comet Lake CPUs leaked and could end Ryzen's domain in the CPU sector.
According to the leak, Intel Core i9-10900KF will be the flagship CPU of the Intel Comet Lake. The CPU features 10 cores, 20 threads with a single core pulse of 5.2 GHz and 4.6 GHz, all cores increase and will cost $ 499.
However, I am skeptical that Intel can beat AMD Ryzen. First, this is just a leak. Second, AMD's Ryzen 5 3600 and Ryzen 5 3600X have already surpassed Intel Core i9-9900K in 4K and 1440p games, which is an 8-core / 16-wire CPU.
If the leak is believed, Intel points to a maximum of 10 cores, while Ryzen 9 3900X already has 12 cores / 24 threads. My point is that, unless Intel has made some serious improvements in its architecture, I don't see Intel beating AMD in the long term.
