We’ve known for a few months now that the PlayStation 5 will be a massive upgrade and a true next-gen console, based on AMD Ryzen 3000 and Na’Vi architecture, boasting an SSD and even ray tracing support. These official details, however, doesn’t tell us just how powerful the PlayStation 5 GPU will be, but a new leak just might.
We’ve seen the PlayStation 5 launch plans leak recently and please do remember to take those leaks, as well as this one, with a grain of salt and treat them as a rumour until such time as Sony officially reveals their next-gen console. With that being said, this new leak comes from a known leaker (who has been correct a number of times) called Komachi on Twitter.
Gen2 : GFXCLK = 2.000GHz
Gen1 : GFXCLK = 0.911Ghz
Gen0 : GFXCLK = 0.800Ghz.

The leak suggest that the PlayStation 5 GPU will be clocked at 2GHz which could apparently equate to roughly 14 Teraflops on the GCN Architecture. For comparison, the Xbox One X produces 6 TF and the PS4 Pro produces 4.2 TF. Further, the two other numbers mentioned by Komachi appear to be much lower and point towards backwards compatibility. That 800GHz is for the standard PS4 while the 911GHz is for the PS4 Pro.
We will just have to wait until 12 February 2020 (as a rumour suggest the console will be shown off at the PlayStation Meeting on that date) or later to know for sure what the PlayStation 5 GPU specifications look like, but it sure does sound like a monster if the leak turns out to be true.
How excited are you for the PlayStation 5 and how powerful do you think the console will be? Let us know in the comment section below.
