The next console generation is fast approaching. The Xbox Series X and the Playstation 5 are set to lock horns, trying to establish an early lead.
Although many features of these systems are still unknown it is still worth having a look at where they stand in comparison to one another.
Both the PS5’s CPU and GPU will be from AMD. The CPU might be able to clock twice as fast as the PS4 Pro at maximum speed. The console will support 4K resolution as well as 8K resolution, reports Digital Trends.
The Xbox Series X will feature 12 TFLOPS of power and will feature up to eight times more graphical performance than Xbox One. The system could have 16GB of RAM, and an upgrade of the 12GB of GDDR5 RAM used by the Xbox One X.
Sony will be moving away from hard drives in favor of solid-state drives for the PS5, enabling games to load much more quickly.
The Xbox Series X will also be making use of a solid-state drive.
Neither company has confirmed the size of the disk.
Only Microsoft has revealed the final design for its console. The Xbox Series X will resemble a PC tower. It is significantly larger than the Xbox One X and Xbox One S systems. The top of the system caves slightly inward, and is made entirely of ventilation holes for better airflow. It can also be positioned horizontally to better fit entertainment centers.
The PS5’s development kit is reportedly unusual in appearance, with a large cut-out section in the middle surrounded by vents. It looks to be quite small by console standards, though the final consumer version may not resemble this.
The PlayStation 5’s controller would be ditching traditional rumble motors in favor of haptic feedback. This new technology will allow for more specific responses in games. There will also be variable resistance in the triggers, imitating the action being performed, such as pulling back the string of a bow.
Additionally, the battery packed into the controller will sport a higher capacity than its predecessor.
Microsoft’s controller for the Xbox Series X, revealed during The Game Awards 2019 does not look drastically different from the Xbox One controller. There is a new share button, as well as an updated directional pad. It also features a slightly different form factor.
Unlike the PS4, Sony’s next console will be backward compatible. This will mean it can play PS4 games in addition to its own library of titles.
Microsoft confirmed during E3 2019 that Xbox Series X will support every previous generation of Xbox games, similar to how Xbox One does so now.
