Well, well, well... what do we have here? We have some new leaked specs on Microsoft's next-gen Xbox Series X and Sony's next-gen PlayStation 5 console. The new posts are from 4chan, so take a walk to your cupboard and pick up whatever salt you have, because you're going to need it.
The new new post is reportedly a "game tester in a 3rd party studio" that has leaked out some specs for the second version of a PlayStation 5 developer kit. The specs are interesting, as it sees the PlayStation 5 with 12.6 TFLOPs of performance from an "RDNA 1.5" GPU -- this is very interesting. It's not RDNA (Radeon RX 5000 series) and it's not RDNA2 (next-gen Radeon).
The Xbox Series X in these specs has a slightly slower 11.8 TFLOPs performance, but a higher-clocked Zen 2-based CPU at 3.7GHz (compared to 3.6GHz of the PlayStation 5). The PlayStation 5 has 18GB of GDDR6 memory while the Xbox Series X has 16GB of GDDR6, but both consoles have 4GB of DDR4 system RAM.
Sony's new PlayStation 5 dominates with the new specs in terms of NVMe-based storage, with a 500GB SSD capable of 5.5GB/sec while the Xbox Series X has a larger 1TB SSD but slower 3.8GB/sec speeds.
Both consoles have dedicated RT (ray tracing) cores with the PlayStation 5 with "dedicated cores for RT and 3D audio", while the Xbox Series X has "dedicated RT cores" but less than the PS5 according to these 4chan leaked specs.
