PlayStation 5 is beating Xbox Series X in dev kit form right now

Dev kit battle: PlayStation 5 is beating Xbox Series X in their current dev kit form

Sony is beating Microsoft in the next-gen console battle for now, where in development kit form the PlayStation 5 is beating the Xbox Series X according to the latest whispers online.


An industry insider has posted on NeoGAF saying that the PlayStation 5 is better than the Xbox Series X in development kit form, with 'BGs' saying: "At the beginning of the year PlayStation 5 was still the one that offered the best performance. I don't know if that has changed with the new Devkits, I don't have access to that information at this time and personally I think that (theoretically) I won't have physical access until early summer, for my part".

The poster continues, adding that the differences between the consoles this generation won't be that great -- although I think we know that. They'll both be using very similar semi-custom designs from AMD with ray tracing, 4K 60FPS support, 120FPS support, 8K video support, and so much more.

BGs added: "This generation will NOT be the generation of the visual difference that makes you decide what to buy. It will be the generation of the games. Yes, one will be faster than another (but you will not notice it in practice). One will load the screen in 10 seconds and the other in 7 seconds. One will have a better sound than the other. One will run the game at 60fps and the other ... too. What will really matter will be the quality that development studies can achieve with their time and budget".

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
