Minor update on my Just housekeeping & small changes on the clock ranges. The gold, silver bronze cups represent chances. Disclaimer: All values shown are born from my brain and I did not make use of any inside info!

I am personally not concerned about differences in computational power, it will not as big as between OG Xbox vs OG PS4 and Xbox One X vs PS4 Pro. Alone those both examples shows you that it can go both ways.

It was always that way. In 2012 MS thought they would have an advantage in amount of memory, but than Sony was lucky with its design decision and just were able to use GDDR5 with double the capacity!

4/ I personally think that computational power advantage has run its course. Nowadays the ecosystem plays a important role -> what you can move over to by . Then if you like it or not, will become more and more important over time. It's just the beginning!

3/ To answer your question. I think both of them still want to top the other as it just marks a checkbox in the mind of many gamers but they will not force it. Cost is the current main issue (7nm, SSD, US tariffs) that will limit such efforts.

2/ b) Next Gen will be about the combination of CPU, GPU, extra GPU and CPU capabilities and who has the better SSD speed --> loading times

1/ There are 2 observations I would take into account answering this. a) How both MS and Sony introduced their new consoles by the info they shared it seems the narrative has changed because the RDNA architecture allows better game performance at lower computational power (TF).

3/ So from a base console perspective the leap in both areas is actually quite good if you include that cost for 7nm is increased 4 times the cost of 28nm which was the process the OG consoles where manufactured on.

2/ if you look from a base console perspective the performance gains in GPU are actually bigger. The Xbox One X was 4.5 times the OG Xbox One. If you do the math GPU will leap at almost 7 times while the CPU will still at 4.x times. I would say:

I think you misinterpret what was said. You improve the CPU by 4 times & GPU maybe 1.5 to 2 times vs Xbox One X. The emphasis is clearly the CPU with a much bigger performance jump. The Xbox One X itself was already a big leap in GPU. Look at it from a base console perspective.

2/ This is why people with such workloads are desperate for more cores ;) The last 2 years were a blessing with AMD introducing more cores for a much lower price than Intel. Nowadays you even are able to to it on a mainstream platform like AM4 with a 3900X (12 cores/24 threads).

1/ Blender for instance uses CPU because it has to be real time. But to render a scene or sequence takes several minutes dependent how potent your CPU is.

RT will possibly have extra fixed function HW that reduces the impact of it. We also do not know what part of RT is actually in the mix, don't think you will get a full fledged RT on consoles. I think it will have some constraints ...

DXR is addressing GPU. So for next gen it is the GPU.

Emphasis of is CPU & not so much GPU. This is a confirmation that the gains on CPU will be much bigger than the gains on GPU compared to a . Xbox Project Scarlett will "see a big upgrade in CPU," says Xbox's Aaron Greenberg

Especially if those thoughts target all the money you can make if the game is a hit .... /jk 🤣🤣🤣

I can't tell you if this is typical so early. I would guess/assume Sony planned to launch in 2019 and it was postpones. Also explains the absence from E3.

It is just the form factor, the inner parts don't have to be final ...

2/ Seeing this I also assume that the dev kit produced quite some heat that has to be pushed out of the chassis. I also hope that they use another design for the retail console because I do not stack PS5s in my living room and I would prefer a good looking console
