    PS5 GPU to be 4x More Powerful than PS4, Almost on Par with NVIDIA RTX 2070

    We’ve heard a lot about the next-gen consoles in the last few months, both the Xbox Scarlett as well as the PS5, but we still don’t have any hard numbers. PlayStation architect, Mark Cerny said that the PS5 would leverage AMD’s 7nm chips, Navi and Zen 2, with faster SSD storage, better audio, and I/O, as well as backward compatibility, but we didn’t get anything on how the hardware compares to contemporary offerings.

    However, we might have a rough estimation of what to expect from the next-gen PlayStation’s GPU. Codenamed “Gonzalo”, it is being claimed that the 7nm part will be four times as fast compared to the PS4’s GPU, putting it almost on the same level as NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2070. TUM_APISAK on Twitter has shared the 3DMark (Firestrike) scores of the PS4 and PS5, and they’re as follows:

    • PS4: 5000 (approx)
    • PS5: 20,000+
    • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070: 22,282
    • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080: 26155

    So as you can see, we can expect GPU performance roughly in the same ballpark as the RX 5700XT or the GeForce RTX 2070. In terms of 4K capability, these cards can definitely pull UHD at moderate-high graphics settings, but not with ray-tracing, especially for the Radeon cards. As per rumors, the Gonzalo chip powering the PS5 will be based on the second-gen Navi or RDNA+ architecture, with some sort of hardware-level support for ray-tracing but 4K ray-tracing on consoles or even 1440p seems like a pipe-dream at this point. We’ll have to wait another year to see what the next-gen consoles have to offer in terms of hardware.

    I love computer hardware and RPGs, and those two things are what drove me to start TechQuila. Other than that most of my time goes into reading psychology, writing (and reading) dark poetry and playing games.
