If you don’t live under the rock then it must not come as a surprise to you that Sony and Microsoft have decided to launch their game-changing Xbox series and the brand new Play Station together.
Both of the tech-giants have been working on these much-awaited gadgets/games for years now.
Microsoft did announce the launch of its new Xbox X series a year ago and since then has managed to keep its fans intrigued to the next announcements.
It was very recently that Microsoft released the list of a few games that are included in the Xbox Series brand new edition. Coincidently, the gamers are for a treat this year as Sony announced the release of Play Station 5 (PS5).
Both, the PS5 and the Xbox X series are said to be released during Christmas in 2020.
Yes! The holiday season seems to get incredibly exciting with these new releases!
However, you might be confused between these two game-changer releases. What should you choose? Well, here are some comparisons and details about the PS5 and the Xbox X series that will help in clearing out your confusion!
The features the PS5 and Xbox X series share are pretty much similar.
From their processor to the graphics, both of them will manage to take you on an adventurous roller coaster ride.
The processor of PS5 is said to be an 8-core AMD Ryzen Zen 2-architecture CPU at max 3.5GHz
whereas the processor of the Xbox X series is 8-core AMD Ryzen Zen 2-architecture CPU at 3.6 or 3.8GHz.
Talking about the graphics of these two or the GPU(Graphics Processing Unit) then the graphics of the PS5 is AMD Navi/RDNA 2-family GPU with 36 CU at 2.23 GHz (10.3 TFLOPS, FP unit unknown)
whereas the graphics of the Xbox X series are AMD Navi/RDNA 2-family GPU with 52 CU at 1.825GHz (12TFLOPS FP32).

Games on both of these platforms will be limited by the lowest common denominator even though they’re slightly prettier on Xbox. However, it is not about how many teraFLOPs you have – it is all about how you use them.
The optical drive and the output resolution are said to be similar at 4k, Blu-ray, and 8k respectively along with the memory frame rate that is 4k/120fps.
The change however is seen in the storage capacity. Even though the PS5’s storage that is 825GB compared to 1TB for Series X looks inferior at first, it actually got a higher advantage because of its speed.
The PS5 SSD can manage 5.5GB per second, and this is double the Xbox X’s 2.4GB per second. The PS5 will potentially be able to load faster.
In fact, both of the platforms have SSDs that are advanced enough. The SSDs can be used as a virtual memory that gives you a much-needed boost in loading times and allows quick seamless changes between game screens.
“When we designed the Xbox Series X, we designed it with the next seven to 10 years in mind,
so we’ve absolutely designed the system to be able to do 8K.”
Jason Ronald, the director of program management for the Xbox Series X, told CNN Business.
In conclusion, citing fewer differences and more similarities it might difficult to choose a single gaming platform. However, if you are comfortable with Sony and have been choosing the Play stations every time then continue to do so!
