In November, we covered the differences in the specs of the new PlayStation 4 and Xbox 1 consoles, with Sony claiming the PlayStation 4 would have twice the processing power of the Xbox One, with a more powerful GPU.
That claim has since been proven wrong, with Microsoft claiming that the Xbox 1 would have a “competent” GPU and the PS 4 would still have the same GPU as the PS3.
So how are they doing it?
In a new video, we got a peek at how the new consoles stack up in terms of performance, both on average and in terms to some extreme situations.
We tested out a range of scenarios to see how much power the PS5 and Xbox 720 each used and we then measured the time it took to run them across the room and on the TV.
It’s a very different story when it comes to the Xbox 720.
As you can see in the above video, the PS 5 is consuming less power than the Xbox 360, while the PS1 is consuming more than the PS2.
While the PS6 is consuming twice as much power, the Xbox 7 is only consuming half as much.
This is obviously the result of the higher clock speeds of the PS7.
The PS5 is using just a fraction of the power as the Xbox.
In other words, the new PS5 has the same power consumption as the new Xbox.
When it comes down to it, the difference in the performance between the Xbox and PS5 seems to be mostly in the details, as the performance differences are almost entirely down to the extra processing power available.
The new consoles also have more cores on the Xbox, meaning that there are more instructions that can be done per clock cycle on the PS.
This can be seen when you compare the CPU clocks on the console with the Xbox’s clock speed.
The PS5 uses 8GB of RAM, whereas the Xbox uses 16GB of GDDR5 RAM.
The Xbox uses 2GB of DDR3 RAM, while PS5 only has 2GB.
The PlayStation 5 is using 256MB of VRAM, whereas Xbox is using 512MB of DDR4.
