A new rumor has surfaced and sounds exciting for the PlayStation 5, with rumored power that will see it being a fast as NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card. Now that $1050 pre-order price on the PS5 doesn't seem so crazy.

Gen2 : GFXCLK = 2.000GHz
Gen1 : GFXCLK = 0.911Ghz
Gen0 : GFXCLK = 0.800Ghz.
Kimachi leaked the Oberon sample clocks, which is the APU being made for the PS5 -- where Gen2 has a 2GHz GPU clock. This would be quite the beast, pushing the GPU clock above the Navi 10-powered Radeon RX 5700 XT which sits at around 1900-1950MHz on custom cards that are now rolling in from MSI and SAPPHIRE.
Here, I have the purported PlayStation 5 with an RTX 2080-level GPU in Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 4K Ultra settings - if this is true, the world of 4K 60FPS opens up as I've been saying for a long time now. 4K 60FPS gaming is where next-gen consoles need to hit, and with RTX 2080 level graphics from a custom Navi GPU it'll happen in 2020.
How fast does this make the PS5 in comparison to a bunch of graphics cards, well I thought I'd do that for you with the above chart. I've put in another entry for the PS5 so you can see where it would fit in Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 4K, with some more results at 1440p and 1080p below. This is with the Ultra preset and no ray-tracing, no AA.
