    New consoles

    So the details are out now about the next gen consoles and ... this time around they are fairly powerful... ok really powerful.

    MS seems to have won the spec wars but the PS5 wont be too far behind.

    So the new eggbox has...
    8xZen2 cpus - this makes it practically a Ryzen 3700 - which is a very powerful base for the cpu. Two modes one at 3.6ghz and one a 3.8ghz, the faster clocked mode is without SMT and the slower is with it switched on - there will be quiet a difference in outright grunt between these two.

    52CU rdna 2 graphics, this is the big shocker - this GPU part of the chip is by a long way the fastest APU ever built, its doing circa 12 or so TF and is prob within spitting distance of a 2080ti

    It also has 16gb of ram which is partition 10gb fast and 6 gig slow to give the gpu enough bandwidth to main ram and the OS / apps slower access.
    It also has a 1tb ssd and is box shaped... er...


    The ps5 is similar
    It has a similar CPU arrangement without the SMT/off / on thing
    It has much less CU's at 36 but they run at a lot higher clock speed than the eggboxes (circa 2.3Ghz) so the graphics difference isnt much.
    The ps5 has variable clocks for a lot of its guts and has a fancy SSD that can turn coal into gold and water into wine.

    Basically if you bought the parts right now to come close to the xbox spec from a pc you would need a 3700 (or a 9900k if you like slow/hot/high power consumption and lax security in your chips) and at least a 2080s or more like the 2080ti - both of which are stupidly overpriced.
    Prob looking at 1400 quids worth of pc easy.
    By the end of the year when they release that speed/spec will prob be sub 1k but still considerably more than £499 which i suspect the consoles will come out at.

    Iím excited to hear there will be backward compatibility on the ps5, I donít have many PS4 games but itís good to hear they wonít be obsolete. Apparently they will look better too!

    Iím mainly a GTA nut, canít wait to kill pedestrians in 4K lol
