Not much is known about the PlayStation 5 apart from the fact that Sony is working on it. The specs haven’t been confirmed as yet but if a new report is to be believed, the console could have quite the computing power. It’s APU is expected to have better performance than the NVIDIA GTX 1080.
The report mentions that the first Firestrike benchmark for the PlayStation 5 had seemingly surfaced online and it had revealed a Gonzalo APU which is expected to be the SoC for the PlayStation 5. Many game developers have already sang praises of the PS5’s computing power so it seams that Sony may have succeeded in making significant improvements on this front.
The benchmark figures indicate that the new console is going to be four times more powerful than the base PlayStation 4. The numbers also show that it’s going to offer better performance compared to the GTX 1080 GPU from NVIDIA. If that is indeed accurate, it would be a significant improvement in terms of performance for Sony’s console.
It’s pertinent to note here, though, that the Gonzalo APU is currently still in development so things could change before it ends up in the production units. However, things are most likely going to change for the better.
