On Monday, Microsoft dropped a boatload of information about the new Xbox Series X console. If you missed the news, you can read about all the Xbox Series X Specs by following the link.
At the time, Microsoft were keen to stress the other important advancements, such as loading times and the quick resume feature that all but removes the need to re-load games you've previously paused.
This was also echoed in some of the comments given by Jason Ronald, director of product management for Xbox Series X, who said:
"While the Xbox Series X will deliver a massive increase in GPU performance and continue to redefine and advance the state of art in graphics with new capabilities such as hardware accelerated raytracing, we don't believe this generation will be defined by graphics or resolution alone."
However, normally these contests normally boil down to the bottom number and in this case, the Xbox Series X is packing a whopping 12.1 teraflops of GPU power.
That's twice the power of the Xbox One X console, which is currently recognised as the world's most powerful console.
Should the PS5 and Xbox Series X console launches be delayed to 2021?
0+ VOTES SO FAR
But another equally interesting revolution we've seen overnight comes via PushSquare.
Given Sony's abject silence when it comes to talking about PlayStation 5, it's very hard to tell what the overal specs of Sony's next machine could look like.
But, according to PushSquare, the new PlayStation 5 could be 'more powerful' than the Xbox Series X. That theory is based on an old leak which also seemed to have the inside track on the Xbox Series X specs.
"It all goes back to a NeoGAF poster named Tommy Fisher, who is now banned on the forum for, as far as we can tell, a lack of clarification on various next-gen rumours," PushSquare explains.
"They supposedly shared technical specifications for both the Xbox Series X and the PS5 back in December of last year. Given what we now know about the Xbox Series X, there's no denying that Tommy Fisher was bang on the money."
Writing on NeoGAF, the user Tommy Fisher bluntly stated the following:
"52 active CUs at 2.0Ghz ~ 13.3TFlops – PS5"
"52 active CUs at 1.82Ghz ~ 12.1TFlops – XseX"
If we give the user the benefit of the doubt and assume he has some sort of insider information on these specs some months back, and that it's not some unbelievable flukey guess, we should also assume he has some idea of what the PS5 specs are.
And based on what he's saying, Sony's PS5 is going to be a beast even by Xbox's standards.
Hopefully, Sony doesn't take too long to finally reveal the truth and fingers crossed the specs match up with what Tommy Fisher posted.
A lack of 'power' has long been the stick with which Xbox has used to beat PlayStation users. Despite having a list of exclusives that
Microsoft would be envious of, it wouldn't surprise us if Sony were to go for broke in an effort to not only be the 'best place to play' but also the console with the most punch.
Only time will tell, which is why we really hope Sony would hurry up now.
