Apparently, Sony's next-gen PlayStation console is more powerful than Microsoft's Project Scarlett Xbox. This is according to developers who worked on dev kits of both consoles and found that PlayStation 5 features stronger hardware.
As we get closer and closer to the reveal of next-generation consoles from both Sony and Microsoft, many rumors and leaks are starting to surface over the internet. Over the last couple of months, we had reports mentioning 8K resolution, much better VR support and 60 FPS gameplay in 4K.
While some of these features will remain the stuff of dreams for console players for quite some time, there are a couple of other more realistic leaks that come from developers who received dev kits of both new PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
Last week, Game Informer reported that the rumour around E3 2019 is that the PS5 is more powerful than Project Scarlett. Without full official confirmation on the consoles' hardware, this would be just a rumour but the developers with dev kits also claim that PlayStation 5 is indeed more powerful than Xbox Project Scarlett.
According to former IGN editor Colin Moriarty, who talked about this in his podcast, the information he has comes directly from game developers working with both consoles' dev kits. Of course, just like any other rumour, leak or unconfirmed info, take this with a grain of salt.
Furthermore, both consoles are still a long way from its release and dev kits are never the same as the final version of the console meaning that things could change as we get closer to the full reveal.
We know that both consoles will pack 8-core Zen 2 CPUs from AMD and will focus on fast SSDs to avoid or minimise the loading times. There's also talk about ray tracing and 4K at 120Hz refresh rate support but don't get your hopes up until you see it with your own eyes.
The new consoles should arrive in the second part of 2020.
