PlayStation 5 Might Not Use AMD Hardware For Its Ray Tracing Tech

On ResetEra forums, member Kleegamefan, who has been a great source of information about next-generation gaming consoles, claimed that the PlayStation 5 is ahead of Xbox Series X in terms of game performance. The PS5 will also reportedly feature GDDR6 memory, which is identical to AMD's RX 5700 series Navi cards, if you want to compare it to the world of PC gaming.

Also detailed in the leak are three different "modes" the PS5 will use to support backwards compatibility with the PS4 and PS4 Pro. "Right now, game performance is better on PS5". The leak reports that the PS4's successor will boast a 9.2 teraflop graphics card, a good deal less than the projected 12 teraflops reportedly packed into the Xbox Series X's GPU, but impressive nonetheless. "The former is explicitly stated as running with 36 compute units, a 911MHz core clock, 218GB/s of memory bandwidth and 64 ROPs - the exact specifications of PlayStation 4 Pro". A processor referred to as "Arden" is found in the data acquired, but is incomplete.

"Meanwhile, the PlayStation 5 spec outlined in the leak points toward a device with more of a balance between price and performance", DF's Richard Leadbetter writes.

According to recent media reports, Sony's next-generation console PlayStation 5 will also use AMD technology as Microsoft Xbox Series X. However, the latest leak shows that Sony PS5 ray tracing hardware does not use AMD chips. Speculation about the 12 teraflops has been swirling about for some time now, and you can read our thoughts on what that means for the Xbox Series X's price tag.

While Microsoft and Sony have had close to 300 days and a handful of dedicated gaming conferences to disseminate information about what fans and customers can expect from the two next-gen consoles, there has been relatively little concrete news about the gaming experiences that will be powered by the devices outside of some expected software tweaks and some fluffed up marketing speak. I believe that is probably because PS5 development hardware and software are in a more advanced state. If this is indeed true, the next Xbox will be much more powerful than the PS5.
