On the graphics side, Xbox Series X is using the RDNA 2 architecture from AMD. While we thought that the PS5 is using RDNA2, that does not seem to be the case according to a Sony engineer. Principle Graphics Engineer at Sony Rosario Leonardi confirmed that the PS5 is not using RDNA2 but an architecture that is actually between RDNA1 and 2. Some parts are based on RDNA2 but the primary core is based on RDNA1. This is interesting because Xbox Series X uses RDNA 2. We know that the Xbox Series X is going to have more raw power than the PS5 and this is another interesting bit of information that backs that claim. So I would not be surprised if the Xbox Series X is indeed the most powerful console at launch. Since the announcement of the PS5, Sony has not really discussed aspects other than the SSD.…

Sony has talked in-depth about the PS5 SSD but for the first time, we are hearing a ton of new details about the SSD used in Microsoft’s Xbox Series X. In an extensive blog post, Microsoft discussed the “Xbox Velocity Architecture” that powers the next-generation of Xbox. Xbox Series X has an NVME SSD which is the foundation of Microsoft’s Xbox Velocity Architecture. It is their custom, 1TB NVME SSD that delivers 2.4GB/s of raw I/O throughput, 40x more than the base Xbox One. Xbox Series X SSD is designed to deliver consistent, sustained performance as thermals increase, as opposed to Sony’s touted “peak performance.” An important thing to note is that while raw performance is 2.4 GB/s, Microsoft’s hardware-accelerated decompression will push that number of 4 GB/s, effectively double the performance. This is about 100x the performance of the Xbox One and PS4. https://youtu.be/1lPzqRJanpU Developers have a guaranteed level…
