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.
BREAKING: THIS IS PS5. According to this leak- the GPU will be clocked at an insane 2ghz.— Is A Parrot (@isaparrot) August 13, 2019
This equates to 9.2 TF on the RDNA architecture. Or roughly 14 TF on the GCN Architecture aka over double the power of the X1X. Almost RTX2080 power.
In English: it's very powerful https://t.co/09rB49ugBT
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.

1. Oberon codename uses an Ariel GPU.
2. Ariel is linked to the Gonzalo APU.
3. Oberon clocks of 800 mhz and 911 mhz are a that of PS4 and PS4 Pro for backwards compatibility
It's looking like PS5! https://t.co/G0YizDcc1b
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.
