New leaks and rumours, pointing to the performance levels of the PlayStation 5, claim that the PlayStation 5 will be faster than the Xbox Series X. While previous rumours have suggested that the Xbox Series X will have an advantage over the PlayStation 5 when it comes to graphics, new rumours suggest that the PlayStation 5 will be a bit better when it comes to the overall performance.
A tweet by Tidux, a well-known gaming industry leaker says that the PS5’s overall performance beats the Xbox Series X. Tidux are known for very accurate leaks in the past that later turned out to be true.
The tweet said that even though the PS 5 and the Xbox Series X have almost identical processors, the PS5 will have an advantage due to its RAM. It will be able to surpass Xbox Series X in both size and bandwidth. The SSD on the PlayStation 5 is also rumoured to be of bigger capacity than the Series X and will have faster read/write speeds than the Series X according to the leaker.
The above information by Tidux is based on the final development kits of PlayStation 5 that are now in the hands of the developers. “This is what info I have gathered over the last few weeks. Final dev kits for PS5 are out,” wrote Tidux.
However, it remains to be seen how these advantages will translate to better performance in the real world. It would be interesting to see if these advantages lead to a faster user interface on the consoles and give users the ability to suspend multiple games and applications at once, similar to smartphones.
