PlayStation 5 Rumors: 2 GHz Radeon Navi GPU, February 2020 Unveil

Serial hardware leaker @Komachi has returned with some news on Sony’s upcoming console. The PlayStation 5 utilizes a Navi-based APU codenamed Oberon, and one of the engineering samples is supposedly clocked at 2 GHz.

According to @isaparrot, that would mean performance on par with an NVIDIA RTX 2080, which is capable of 10.1 TFLOPS (2 GHz RDNA = 9.2 TFLOPS). It’s certainly a leap from last-generation’s Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, which top out at 6 TFLOPs and 4.2 TFLOPS, respectively.

There are also rumors of a big “PlayStation Meeting” happening in February 2020. The PlayStation 5 will supposedly be unveiled during that event.

The PlayStation 5 will be going head-to-head with Project Scarlett, which is also powered by an AMD Zen2-based CPU and a Navi GPU. Xbox chief Phil Spencer recently stated in an interview that Microsoft is placing a heavy emphasis on overall system performance.
